Daytona State College Student Rights and Grievance Procedure
Students who perceive that they have been mistreated by college staff or faculty may register their academic or other grievance with a college supervisor, administrator or academic department chair. Distance Learning students must follow the same procedures. Reasonable accommodations will be made for Distance Learning students who are unable to attend meetings on one of the college campuses. Students must assume complete responsibility for complying with the informal grievance procedure and attempt to resolve their grievance at the lowest level possible. Students should consult with the Question and Answer Center to better understand the college procedure for resolving grievances.
