Technical Support
To request technical support, CEHD faculty and staff can either send e-mail to oet-help@udel.edu or complete a technical support request form to explain the problem. Messages sent to oet-help are read by at least two OET staff members weekdays. To ensure that you receive the fastest service possible, please do not call or e-mail OET staff individually, as a staff member may be out of the office on any given day. Requests are added to a service queue and handled on a first-come, first-served basis, except in emergency cases.

Faculty and staff within CEHD can check on the status of any help requests they opened within the last month. You may also find answers to your questions from OET’s support blog on our site’s home page. Please note that University clients who are not in CEHD, should contact central IT at consult@udel.edu or (302)831-6000 for technical support.
