STUDENT PROCEDURES & PROCESSES


Student Complaint Process

Most student complaints, grievances or disciplinary matters should be resolved at the campus level. Please contact the Office of the Ombudsperson. This is the quickest and most successful way of resolving issues involving a California Community College (CCC).

Issues that are not resolved at the campus level may be presented to:

  • The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) (at http://www.accjc.org/) complaint-process if your complaint is associated with the institution's compliance with academic program quality and accrediting standards. ACCJC is the agency that accredits the academic programs of the California Community Colleges.

  • The CCC Chancellor's Office by completing the web form below if your complaint does not concern CCC's compliance with academic program quality and accrediting standards.
