Guidelines for Writing a Grievance

  1. Draft a Letter. The grievance is initiated when the student submits a formal grievance (using the "Filing a Grievance" form) and supporting documentation (including, but not limited to, a letter detailing the complaint and evidence or proof to support complaint). Explain the situation completely and accurately in a well-written document that:
    1. Outlines the situation
    2. States your position
    3. Requests your desired outcome or solution

      Checklist for Students Submitting Grievances

      2. >Date you are filing the grievance
      3. Program (For example: MA, DA, VN, PTA, RAD, etc.)
      4. The office or individual the grievance is against
      5. Location, date, and time the alleged incident occurred

This letter may be your only opportunity to communicate the situation and your desired resolution.
  3. Include any and all supporting documentation that you feel will help clearly state and support your position. A well written letter is best supported by examples or attestations from other students, faculty or staff when applicable.
