Academic Grievance Procedure

Monroe Community College has an established process for academic grievances to provide an orderly, fair, and prompt resolution to all perceived student academic grievances. These procedures are established to insure the due process, and the equitable treatment and protection of all parties involved in the perceived academic grievance.

When a student believes there are grounds for an academic grievance, the following procedures should be followed:

  1. The student should speak with the instructor immediately upon receiving the grade of concern or experiencing the grievance.
  2. If not resolved to satisfaction, the student should speak with the department chairperson within ten days of receiving the grade of concern or experiencing the grievance.
  3. If still not resolved to satisfaction, call or stop in to the Academic Services office to begin filing an academic grievance within ten days of receiving the grade of concern or experiencing the grievance. Grievance forms are available in Academic Services, Brighton Campus, Building 1, Room 309.

For more specific information, please refer to the Rights and Freedoms of Students brochure that explains the academic grievance process.
