Any student with a question or concern about discrimination or harassment based on disability may file a complaint in accordance with Procedure 300 in the Student Handbook. Individuals who wish to file a complaint may obtain information about the complaint process at www.sanjac.edu/complaint-process.

Students with disabilities have the right to appeal accommodation decisions made through Educational Planning, Counseling & Completion. To appeal, an individual first will have needed to complete the Disability Services Accommodation Application.

Individuals wanting to appeal the  decision  must do so in writing within 14 days of the notice of the accommodation decision. The appeal should include a copy of the original request for accommodation, documentation of disability, the accommodation decision and the reasons why the decision is being appealed. The appeal is to be sent to the Director of Educational Planning, Counseling & Completion (on the student’s respective campus) who, after a review, will render a written decision, typically within 2 weeks or less.

For inquiries, call:

Central Campus            281-478-2768

North Campus               281-459-7192

South Campus               281-922-3444

The Director of Educational Planning, Counseling & Completion will provide students an opportunity to present information useful to understanding  the appeal. The director of Educational Planning, Counseling & Completion may decide to  uphold the previous accommodation decision, support the appeal request, decide on an alternative or decide that new information has been submitted which necessitates further review.
