If a student believes that an accommodation(s) is ineffective or that they have been denied equal access to appropriate accommodations, modifications, auxiliary aids, or effective communication, and efforts to resolve the issues are unsuccessful, a student may file a grievance. Students are encouraged to seek resolution of the grievance through the informal process before filing a formal grievance. However, students may use the College’s formal grievance procedure to appeal decisions regarding student accommodations, and may do so without first going through the College’s informal grievance process.
