Grievance/Complaint Procedure

Valley College strives to ensure that its students are fully satisfied with their education program. However, in order to afford full consideration to students’ complaints or concerns, this grievance procedure is set forth to create the framework for problem resolution. Should students have a concern, a discussion with the faculty member or campus staff member can resolve most issues.

All students’ grievances/complaints will be handled in the following manner:

  1. The student should first attempt to resolve the issue directly with the faculty member or the campus staff member involved.
  2. If the student does not feel that the issue has been resolved, the student should present a written grievance to the Director of Academic Affairs (or designated staff member). The Director of Academic Affairs (or designated staff member) should promptly acknowledge the receipt of the complaint and may schedule a meeting in person with the student to discuss the issue. The Director of Academic Affairs (or designated staff member) will respond to the complaint in writing addressing the issue and describing any corrective action, if applicable.
    Students may also submit a grievance electronically by clicking here.
  3. If the issue remains unresolved, the student must present a written complaint to the Campus Director/Director, Online Division. The appropriate Director should promptly acknowledge the receipt of the complaint and may schedule a meeting in person with the student to discuss the issue. The appropriate Director will respond to the complaint in writing addressing the issue and describing any corrective action, if applicable.
  4. If the student feels that the complaint is still unresolved, the student should submit the complaint in writing to the College’s President at the following address: 287 Aikens Center, Martinsburg WV 25404. The President will respond to the student in writing with the proposed resolution.
  5. If the student continues to feel that the complaint has not been resolved by Valley College to the satisfaction of the student, the student may contact one of the following:
