Student Grievance Process  

In this policy, the terms “complaint” and “grievance” shall have the same meaning. This policy shall apply to all student complaints, except as provided below.

This policy shall not apply to:
  • Complaints alleging discrimination or harassment based on race, color, gender, national origin, disability, or religion. (See Procedures for Reporting Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation on page 76 of the student handbook in reference to NTCC Policy FFD).
  • Complaints concerning retaliation relating to discrimination and harassment. (Procedures for Reporting Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation on page 76 of the student handbook in reference to NTCC Policy FFD).
  • Complaints concerning disciplinary decisions. (See Student Discipline, Penalties, and Hearing Procedures on page 104 of the student handbook in reference to NTCC Policy FMA).
  • Complaints concerning a commissioned peace officer who is an employee of the College District. (See CHA).

A student grievance is a College District-related concern or problem that the student believes is unfair, inequitable, discriminatory, or a hindrance to the student’s education. The College District’s student grievance process affords the student a means for filing a grievance and provides a process for resolving a grievance.

The College District supports the concept of due process, a means by which students are assured that specific problems are addressed in a fair and impartial manner. A student grievance shall be initiated by a student and may proceed, if necessary and applicable , through the College District’s formal hearing process. [See FMA] Complaints of sexual harassment , discrimination, and retaliation shall be handled in accordance with FDE.
