Grievance & Appeal Procedures

If you are taking any courses through Front Range Community College, and you have a complaint about your experience, you have two options:

  1. Front Range Community College has a formal student grievance procedure that provides students the right to seek redress, when they believe that their rights or freedoms have been violated. Procedures for formal grievances are available in the Office of Student Life, the Office of the Dean of Student Services, or in the Student Handbook at http://www.frontrange.edu/Current-Students/Student-Life.
  2. If you are residing outside of Colorado while attending Front Range Community College, in many cases you can file a complaint in the state where you are residing. As required by federal regulations, download a list of agencies in each state where complaints can be filed.

Before exercising either of the above options, you should know that most (if not all) external complaint processes require that the student exhaust all avenues of complaint internal to the institution before they will consider a grievance.
