Student Complaint Processes

Pima Community College, in its goal to provide quality instruction and service, provides students access to appropriate College staff and administration to resolve questions and concerns about PCC staff, policies, procedures, or other actions or inactions of the College.

Students are strongly encouraged to resolve any concern by talking with the individual or faculty member and his/her supervisor if necessary.

  • Student Complaint Resource Liaisons at each campus (see box on right) are available to provide assistance.
  • Online Students Outside the State of Arizona can access the support of AZ SARA.

If a student does not agree with the initial discussion and suggested resolution, the student may file a formal complaint.  A complaint is a concern that a policy or procedure of the College has been incorrectly or unfairly applied, or a charge against a person’s behavior.

Use one of the methods below to discuss or file a formal complaint.
