A grievance is a student allegation that a college decision or action is discriminatory or has a negative effect on the student's status at the college.
Any student may request a review of a college decision or action alleged to be discriminatory or to have a negative effect on the student's status at Central Piedmont. However, in accordance with 4.16 Sexual Misconduct Policy, some forms of harassment may also violate the college's policy against Sexual Misconduct under Title IX. When a report of harassment is received, the Title IX coordinator will determine whether it shall proceed under this policy or the Sexual Misconduct Policies and Procedures.
If the decision or action is alleged to be discriminatory, the student should refer to 4.10 Discrimination and Harassment Policy.
If the decision or action concerns a course grade or any other college decision or action, the student should refer to 4.07 Grievance Process for Students.
