A grievance is a formal written allegation by a student charging unlawful or unfair treatment with respect to the application of laws, rules, policies, procedures, or regulations under which the college operates. Each student has the right to express an opinion, make suggestions, and submit a grievance.
While students may elect to resolve a non-instructional conflict by contacting the office of Counseling Services, instructional concerns should be addressed through appropriate academic channels in a timely fashion. It is the student’s responsibility to understand and follow the steps of the grievance policy.
Please refer to the 2013/2014 VWCC online Student Handbook for the Student Grievance Procedure for further instructions. After reviewing the procedure students may go to the division office or the program office to proceed.
