Any student who believes that the college has discriminated against them on the basis of disability (includes Accessibility Services decisions) is encouraged to discuss the matter with the Accessibility Services coordinator first. If such discussion does not resolve the matter, the student may then initiate Level II. A complainant is not required by law to use the institutional conflict resolution procedure before filing a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), however, both OCR and the college encourage using the internal procedure before filing an OCR complaint.
The student can appeal this decision by submitting a written grievance to the vice president of academic and student affairs. This written appeal must be filed within 10 days (includes Saturdays and Sundays) from the date of the dean's letter. The vice president will attempt to schedule an appointment or contact the student by phone within 10 working days of grievance receipt. The vice president will forward a letter of finding within five working days (registered mail) after contacting the student. If an extension is needed, the student will be notified in writing (registered mail).
