Academic Grievance

(Complaints About Areas of Instruction)

The College has a grievance procedure available to hear students’ academic complaints. The procedure seeks to insure that a student’s complaint is heard promptly, equitably, and informally.

Hopefully the conflict can be resolved in the initial steps of the process when the student discusses the matter with the instructor, the division chairperson, and the Vice-President of Student Learning. However, if the grievance is not resolved after these meetings, the student may present the case to an Academic Grievance Committee.

The student must submit a written statement of the complaint to the Division Chair or Student Learning Vice-President no later than 45 calendar days after the end of the semester in which the grievance occurred. Students may not pursue grievances after this time limit.
