student grievance procedures

The purpose of this policy is to provide a mechanism to resolve student complaints against other members of the campus community. This procedure does not handle grade appeals for which there is a separate process (see the University Catalog – Grade Changes and Appeals).

In all cases, the University’s commitment to the student is to provide a resolution of his/her complaint in a fair and reasonable manner. A complete copy of the Student Grievance Procedure may be viewed at You may also obtain a copy of that procedure from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, WH A410.

Complaints regarding discrimination, harassment and retaliation by students and applicants for admission against the CSU and/or CSU employees are separate from the grievance procedure noted above.  CSU Executive Orders 1096 and 1097 detail how CSUDH prohibits discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.  For more information about the CSU Executive Orders Governing CSUDH's Response to Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation, visit  To report an incident to the Title IX Officer/Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation Administrator, fill out the online reporting form found at or call (310) 243-1025.
