Student Grievance

The purpose of the grievance procedures is to provide a process for an impartial review of student-initiated concerns and to ensure that the rights of the university students are properly recognized and protected.

A grievable action is in violation of written campus policies or procedures or constitutes misapplication or misinterpretation of University policies, regulations, rules, or procedures. Grievance may not be used to challenge policies or procedures of a general applicability.

If you have a grievable action against the University, division, department, unit, organization and/or individual, please submit a report.

If you have questions, please contact Eyob Zerayesus, Associate Dean
