b. Failure to timely file a notice of appeal constitutes a waiver of the right to appeal and the college action shall be deemed final.
c. The grievance shall be filed with the Vice President of Instruction regarding academic actions, with the Vice President of Administrative Services for administrative and business service issues, and with the Vice President of Student Services for other student matters.
The notice of appeal must include a brief statement explaining why the student is seeking review of the action. The parties to an appeal shall be the student and the college employee who initiated the college action.
A student who timely appeals a college action has a right to a prompt, fair, and impartial review of the matter.
On appeal, the college bears the burden of establishing the evidentiary facts underlying the college action based on a preponderance of the evidence.
From the date of receipt of the appeal, the vice president has ten (10) days to render a written decision to both parties. The brief written statement will minimally contain the reasons for the decision. This decision is final.
This procedure does not apply to:
Grade appeals
Student Conduct Decisions
Limitation of Liability
The college’s total liability for claims arising from a contractual relationship with the student in any way related to classes or programs shall be limited to the tuition and expenses paid by the student to the college for those classes or programs. In no event shall the college be liable for any special, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages, including but not limited to, loss of earnings or profits.
Student Dress
Students should dress appropriately for training in their chosen occupational area. Instructors inform students of dress expectations found in industry and advise on appropriate classroom or laboratory dress codes.
Student Protection
No one in the college community shall suffer recrimination or discrimination because of participation in the due process grievance procedure. Confidentiality will be observed pending resolution. A grievance shall be considered resolved if timelines are not maintained.
Students as Minors
Students younger than 18 years of age may be affected by certain laws and policies that do not apply to older students. Those student’s parents will need to sign the “Parent Acknowledgment” form. Upon signature, students will be treated as an adult and will be expected to conform to the same conduct expected of adult students. Please pick up the form at the High School Programs office.
