Complaint Resolution

SLCC’s Student Grievance Process for Academic and Non-Academic Decisions is described in the Student Code of Conduct. It is the policy of Salt Lake Community College to provide fair and orderly procedures to resolve student grievances. Nothing in this policy prevents a student from discussing a complaint informally with any appropriate College employee, but students must follow the specific procedures and timelines to initiate a formal grievance.

Students who have complaints against the college relating to fraud, false advertising, or other deceptive practices can file a complaint with the Utah Division of Consumer Protection:
