  • Student Concerns Procedure
    The College recognizes that disputes may sometimes arise and encourages the parties involved to resolve the conflict informally whenever possible. If resolution cannot be reached informally, a formal complaint process will be provided in order to assure impartial and equitable resolution for those conflicts. Any individual that feels they have been treated unfairly will have the ability to present their concerns and has the right to be heard fairly and promptly.This complaint process may not be invoked for matters that have independent appeal processes established. Examples of these include, but are not limited to academic standing appeals, student conduct decisions, FERPA regulations, financial aid awarding and decisions, grades, Title IX regulations, discrimination and harassment policies/procedures, and safety related activity.

    Matters which are not grievable through the informal or formal complaint process include the following:

    – Federal and State laws
    – Employment and personnel decisions
    – Policies of the Board of Education
    – Rules and procedures adopted by the department of Community Colleges and  Workforce Development
    – Procedures for filing a formal complaint: (After efforts to resolve informally have been exhausted.)
