Grievance Procedure for Students with Disabilities
If students disagree with the academic adjustments established by Accessibility Services or believe that, based on the provisions of the ADA and Section 504, they have experienced disability-related discrimination, there are several avenues they may pursue. Students may attempt to resolve the matter through informal means. For any academic matter, students should contact the Vice President for Academic Affairs/Academic Dean. For nonacademic matters, students should contact the Dean of Student Engagement. If the student is not satisfied with the resolution through the informal process or prefers to pursue a formal grievance, the following procedures pertain:
Students involved in a grievance process, whether formal or informal, will not be subject to any form of retaliation, reprisal, or harassment as a result of having filed a complaint or participating in a complaint investigation. Students are encouraged to initiative a grievance within a reasonable period of time, preferably in the same semester during which the issues arose.
