Students may at times deem themselves to have been treated by peers inappropriately, or

by representatives of the College in a manner that falls outside of appropriate and

reasonable standards of fairness, integrity, or appropriate execution of duties, particularly

regarding the implementation of College policies, processes, and procedures. When such

circumstances occur, students are encouraged to address the matter directly with the

individual(s) who gave rise to the concern through personal or electronic contact, when

appropriate. Students may wish to consult with the counselors in Counseling and Health

Services, other professionals in the Office of Student Development, or faculty advisors

for guidance before addressing the issue.

If direct contact is not appropriate or does not lead to a timely resolution of the concern,

students are encouraged to seek resolution by contacting appropriate officials of the

College. For concerns related to academic issues or academic-related employees of the

College, students should contact the Assistant Provost in the Provost’s Office in Munger

Hall 210. For all other concerns, students should contact the Dean of Students in the

Office of Student Development in the Norton Campus Center, 2nd floor. These officials

will meet with students as soon as is reasonably possible, and will assist them in working

with other College officials as appropriate or may request students to submit a written

statement to initiate a formal complaint. Students can also submit a complaint to College

officials by completing the online Student Complaint Form available on the Birmingham-

Southern College website. After receiving the information, these officials will investigate

the matter thoroughly.

If the incidents potentially involve violations of College policies, such as behaviors of

discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct, students are encouraged to

report the situation to Campus Police, Counseling and Health Services, or Student

Development, and to follow the processes outlined in the

Student Handbook


Students with complaints against the institution generally, which are not resolved by the

College, may wish to contact the primary accrediting body of the College, the Southern

Association of Colleges and School (SACSCOC) at 404-679-4500. Complaint procedures

for SACSCOC may be found on the SACSCOC website
