New!: Student and graduate student employees can now be verified through the Work Number at OSU.

Oregon State University uses The Work Number™ to provide automated, immediate employment and income verifications for all employees. This fast, secure service is widely known to lenders, banks and others, is easy to use and is considered a best practice by many companies.

The Work Number™ can be used anytime, anywhere and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A verifier can print directly from the website at, or they can access the system through an 800 number for voiced and/or faxed verifications.

Please Note: Oregon State University does not use social security numbers to identify employees through The Work Number.  Oregon State University employees can be found using the "other id" function and entering the OSU ID number with a leading zero.  Ex: 093xxxxxxx (10 digits)
