Student Rights & Responsibilities
Discrimination Grievance Procedures
Internal Complaints: Students who feel they have been discriminated against because of a disability or perceived disability should refer to the SPU nondiscrimination policy at http://www.spu.edu/depts/studentlife/grievanceprocedures.asp. This policy outlines the University's nondiscrimination policy as well as internal grievance procedures if a student suspects discrimination.
External (OCR) Complaints: Students are encouraged to follow the internal grievance procedure in an attempt to resolve complaints. However, students can file a grievance with the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) at any time. Ordinarily, the time limit for filing a complaint with OCR is 180 days from the time the incident occurred. Information on how to file a grievance with OCR can be found at http://www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/index.html?src=oc.
