The Student Concern process is an informal process to address the non-compliance of the accommodation implementation for students registered with Disability Services (DS). If a student believes that a faculty or staff member outside of DS has not provided equal access or was not provided their accommodations, the student should submit the Student Concern Form to DS. DS will review the student’s concern and discuss the situation with the student and, if necessary, the employee to find a resolution.
*Please note: Students are encouraged to contact their course instructors and/or the appropriate department directly for any other matters (ex: grade appeals).
Currently enrolled students who wish to file a formal grievance related to accommodations associated to or with a disability should follow the procedures outlined in the university policy UPPS 04.04.46 - Prohibition on Discrimination. Should a student choose to initiate the formal grievance procedure, then the informal dispute resolution procedures will cease. At its discretion, DS may exercise its professional judgement to involve other parties and/or escalate the concern to a formal grievance.
