If a Columbia College Chicago student believes that s/he has been discriminated against because of a disability by any Columbia College Chicago personnel, s/he has the right to seek a review of such concerns. A student with a disability has the option of pursuing either an informal complaint or a formal grievance. If a student opts to pursue an informal complaint, s/he may later pursue a formal grievance if not satisfied with the resolution of the informal process. A student who is uncertain about filing a formal grievance may consult informally with the 504 Coordinator (Dean of Students), with staff in the Services for Students with Disabilities office, the Dean of Students' office, and/or the Provost's office.
Please see the Anti-Discrimination and Harassment Policy for more details about the informal and formal grievance procedures for students with disabilities. Copies of this policy in full can be obtained in the Services for Students with Disabilities office and the Dean of Students' office.
