Student Grievances and Appeals

Specific procedures at Texas A&M University allow undergraduate and graduate students to pursue a grievance for any of the problems, issues, or concerns listed in the table below.  Before initiating a grievance, students are strongly encouraged to seek clarification and advice regarding appropriate procedures from the School of Public Health Office of Student Affairs.

Policies and procedures exist for the following types of complaints.  For complaints outside these areas, students should seek informal resolution through consultation with the faculty, staff member, or administrator directly responsible for the concern.  There is also a Miscellaneous Complaint policy to address "other" types of complaints outside this listing.

If the complaint concerns an office or department outside the School of Public Health, the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs will direct the student to the appropriate person responsible for addressing the issue.  Each complaint will be reviewed in accordance with the policy of the office/department in question.  A complaint log will be maintained by the Office of Student Affairs with the following:  historical information, pertinent dates, parties involved, and final resolution.
