The student complaint policy addresses concerns about a grade received, a member of the instructional staff or a process of the college. This information also is available in the Department of Student Services and division offices.
You are asked to attempt to resolve the concern directly with the appropriate faculty member before starting the formal resolution process. If you are not satisfied or willing to address the issue with the faculty member, a formal process may be initiated..
You can complete, sign and submit the Instructional Complaint/Grievance Form. The appropriate administrator then will do one of the following

If the complainant feels due process was not followed, an appeal can be made to the vice president for
instructional and student success within 10 working days from the receipt of the administrative decision.
The appeal must establish one of the following:
- The procedures were not properly followed or
- An adequate opportunity to present evidence was not allowed
A decision regarding the appeal will be made within 10 working days by the vice president for instructional and student success. The decision on the appeal is final.
