FRCC and the Student Appeals Process
Under the authority of the Colorado Department of Higher Education, collegiate institutions are to have specified appeal processes to resolve student issues or problems.
The most common student appeals pertain to general education courses, transfer, tuition classification, financial aid, faculty problems, or grades.
FRCC has a number of appeal processes within the college to not only comply with required state procedures, but also to provide a student an opportunity to a fair and expeditious means to resolve issues that affect a student’s enrollment.
While the college continually strives to ensure that a student’s experience at the institution is positive, from time to time issues will arise from decisions affecting a student.
Depending on the nature of the dispute, there are a variety of levels at which a student may request a review of a decision. These levels of review include appeal processes that are both internal and external to the college.
