Student Grievance Policy

If a student feels a staff member has taken unfair disciplinary action, or treated him/her unfairly in academic-related, work-related, or any other matters, the student has the right to express his/her perceived unfair treatment and seek resolution using the Student Grievance procedure.

The intent of the Student Grievance Policy is to accommodate a fair and mutually satisfactory resolution of any grievance at the lowest possible level. In fairness to the staff members against whom a grievance is brought, the student must attempt to resolve the grievance directly with the staff member.

If a grievance cannot be resolved to the student’s satisfaction through the informal discussion process with the staff member involved, the student should seek additional information on the policies and procedures for filing a student grievance through the Dean of Student Services.
