LCC Grievance & Appeal Procedures

If you are  taking any LCC Online courses, and you have a complaint about your  experience with Lamar Community College, you have two options:

  1. Follow Lamar Community College’s  process for student complaints, which is located in LCC’s Student Handbook.  You  may also contact the Higher Learning Commission, which is  Lamar Community College’s accrediting agency.
  2. If you  reside outside  of Colorado while attending Lamar Community College, in many cases you can file a complaint  in the state where you are residing.  As required by federal regulations,  the State Higher Education  Executive Officers (SHEEO) has provided a state listing of where complaints can be filed.

Before  exercising either of the above options, you should know that most (if not all)  external complaint processes require that the student exhaust all avenues of  complaint internal to the institution before they will consider a grievance.

For more information, contact LCC’s Vice President for Academic & Support Services  at 719.336.1516 or cheryl.sanchez@lamarcc.edu.
