Other Complaints

Students with grievances concerning matters other than grades should first attempt to resolve the grievance at the department level through discussion with the faculty member(s) or department chair. If the matter is not resolved, the student or department may refer the problem to the appropriate academic dean, the Ombudsman, or the Vice President for Student Affairs, via the Student Complaint Procedure Form, who shall, if necessary, refer it to the Office of the Provost for further consideration and possible action.
