Online Student Complaint Process

You have  a complaint? Please see below

Should you find yourself in conflict with a University process or policy—academic or non-academic—or if you are dissatisfied with the delivery of services provided by a faculty or staff member, you can follow this process to seek resolution and, if necessary, fill out a Student Complaint Form. Please read the following guidelines prior to filing a complaint. You can fill out a complaint form via the link below or you can pick up a form in the CITI, 2nd floor Ward Hall.

We have several different complaint types: General Complaint, Disability/Accommodation Grievances, Grade Appeals, and Sexual and Other Harassment. You are not required to complete the online form for complaints related to ADA accommodations and Title IX (Sexual Assault, Domestic and Interpersonal Violence, Sexual Harassment, and Discrimination). These complaint types would automatically fall under the specific complaint process for those issues.

Types of complaints and grievances:

General complaint: A student may submit a complaint regarding staff, faculty, or other students. Complainant may submit their concern via the complaint form. Example: a general office complaint, customer service, general class concern (not related to your grade) or other concerns.

Complaint link: Student Complaint Form.

ADA grievance/accommodation: Complaints related to ADA compliance should be directed to The Office for Academic Empowerment & Accessibility, 937-376-6479
Sexual Assault, Domestic and Interpersonal Violence, Sexual Harassment, and Other Discrimination: This type of complaint would be filed as a Title IX or Other Discrimination Concern. All complaints or concerns about conduct that may violate this policy should be filed with the following offices or officials:
