UCCS encourages students to report complaints so that the university may discuss their complaints with them in a professional manner. UCCS also encourages informal resolution through direct communication with the individuals involved. Formal complaints will be considered if the student has properly exhausted the informal processes.
This policy establishes the process and provides guidance for general student complaints and addresses how UCCS collects, records, maintains and acts upon these complaints. This policy does not cover student complaints or appeals that are addressable by other specific procedures mandated by law and/or described in other university policies or procedures. In those cases, such other specific procedures, rather than this policy, must be followed.
