What if I am involved in a disciplinary action at my school?

College is an exciting time.  Unfortunately, sometimes students find themselves involved in the disciplinary process for violating a law or school policy.  Colleges and Universities have policies and procedures that apply to students when disciplinary action.  In most cases, students can appeal disciplinary action taken by their institution.

I believe my school is discriminating against me. What should I do?

There are federal civil rights laws which prohibit programs or activities that receive federal fund from the United States Department of Education, including colleges and universities, from discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin, sex, disability, and on the basis of age. If you believe your institution has discriminated against you, you may file a complaint with the United States Department of Education - Office of Civil Rights. You may also be entitled to file other legal action against the school.
