A grievance is a concern with the college brought forth by a student, staff, or faculty member. It is a formal complaint that is investigated, meditated, and resolved by the Student Conduct Officer. Should a complaint need to be routed to an appropriate office for further investigation, the Student Conduct Officer facilitates this exchange. All information and supporting documentation concerning a grievance are kept on file by the college.
Student Conduct Violations
A student conduct violation occurs when a documentable incident takes place within the bounds of one of the college’s campuses, during a college-sponsored event, or while engaging in activities (educational or otherwise) as a result of a student’s academic pursuits with the college. Any incident where there is a potential or verified breach of the Student Code of Conduct can be investigated by the college via the Student Conduct Officer. Depending on the frequency, duration, and severity of the violation, should a student be found responsible for an infraction, sanctions can be imposed. All allegations of student conduct violations are subject to a systematic and thorough investigation, which may include an official Student Conduct Hearing.
