Informal Procedure
All concerned students should make every effort to resolve the matter through informal consultation with involved individuals first. Should this fail to resolve the issue, the complainant may meet with the individual's immediate supervisor. If the problem is unable to be resolved at either of these levels, the formal procedure can be initiated.


Formal Procedure
The formal procedure to be followed for students are either the Due Process Procedure for Student Discipline in Non-Academic Areas or the Due Process Procedure for Student Discipline in Academic Areas or the Grade Appeal Policy, as stated in the Student Handbook.
