Whether the grievance is academic or non-academic, the grievant should first discuss the issue with the person(s) responsible for the action or decision being grieved. If the issue is not resolved the student should go to the next level of authority, whose responsibility is to assist in bringing resolution to the grievance. This process will continue through each level of administration until the grievance has been resolved. If the matter is not resolved the student may file the concern with the appropriate Vice President, the Provost or the Office of the President. Please refer to page 32 of the B-CU Student Handbook.  

In the event the student feels the complaint was not managed properly by the institution, the student may submit his or her complaint to the following state contact:

Office of Articulation
Department of Education
articulation@fldoe.org
850-245-0427
