Students may use the "student appeal form" for select college decisions including: financial aid, suspension, late drop, late withdrawal, the ability to enroll in more than 18 credits/term, the opportunity to pursue a second degree, or to waive transcripts (see form for description of each category). The student appeal form, including instructions on how to complete it, are available on-line via the KCC web site at www.klamathcc.edu or in person at the front desk of Building 3. Once a student’s financial account is in good standing, student appeals are considered by a College student appeals committee made up of qualified personnel from several student success departments across campus. Student appeals are processed at regular intervals throughout the year and students are contacted with appeal decisions promptly.
Students may use the "final course grade appeal form" to challenge an academic grade. The form is available on-line via the KCC web site at www.klamathcc.edu or in person at the front desk of Building 3. As with student complaints, students submitting grade appeals should first discuss the matter with the instructor involved in the appeal. If this is not an option, the Department Chair or Student Success Manager (located in Building 3) can often mediate a discussion between the students and instructor to assist. If the student is still not satisfied, he/she may submit a grade appeal form to the Vice President of Academic Affairs located in Building 3. Grade appeals will be processed at regular intervals throughout the year and students are contacted with appeal decisions promptly.
