General Grievance Procedure for Students with Disabilities

Any students who has discussed an accommodation concern with the DSS Coordinator and feel it has not been adequately resolved, may then file a formal General Grievance. Grievances filed for reasons related to student disability accommodations are reviewed by Hagerstown Community College’s 504/ADA Coordinator. Responsibilities of the 504/ADA Coordinator include assuring compliance with the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other federal and state laws and regulations pertaining to persons with disabilities). HCC’s 504/ADA Coordinator will investigate the charges and pursue an informal resolution. Formal resolution will be sought if the complainant student is not satisfied with the informal resolution and will entail the convening of the College Hearing Board. Refer to the General Grievance Policy and Procedure for Students as outlined in the Hagerstown Community College Student Handbook for details. The General Grievance Form for Students is available online via the HCC website (under the Current Students tab and on the Disability Support Services webpage) or at . A hard copy of the General Grievance Form for Students form is available upon request through the Dean of Students’ Office, 240-500-2526, studentaffairs@hagerstowncc.edu, or Student Center Room 142.
