Academic Grievance Procedure
If a dispute involving an academic issue occurs, the student and faculty member should try to resolve their differences through a private conference. Should such efforts fail, the student may initiate the grievance procedure by completing a Formal Grievance Form. Once this form is completed, a meeting with the Grievance Committee will be called. The Grievance Committee is a standing committee composed of the Academic Dean and two students appointed by Student Government, to assist the student and faculty member in resolving this matter. If there is no satisfactory outcome at this meeting, the matter will be sent to the Educational Policies Committee for final resolution.
Non-Academic Grievance Procedure
Most matters of conflict or disagreement can be resolved by meeting individually with the offending party. Grace Bible College asks that any member of the community with a complaint against another member or entity first attempt to seek resolution by meeting with the individual with whom they are in conflict. Whether or not an individual meeting has taken place, students have the right to submit a formal complaint. This process is initiated by completing a Formal Grievance Form. The Academic Dean maintains record of these complaints as well as the processing and resolution of complaints according to College policies.
To reduce costs to students, Grace Bible College does not maintain a campus bookstore. Students are free to purchase textbooks through any vendor they choose. Textbook information is provided through the Student Portal including ISBN. Links to Amazon.com are provided through the student portal for student’s convenience.
For students in the AOE program, textbook rentals are included in course fees.
