Grievances

The information below describes the grievance procedure concerning accommodations for undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities registered at Simmons College.

The grievance procedure is intended to address student concerns regarding perceived discrimination or denial of an accommodation. Students are required to follow the official procedure for requesting accommodations by submitting documentation from a licensed professional, registering with the Disability Services Office and completing accommodation letters for each class in which accommodations are being requested. Faculty members are not obligated to provide accommodations to students without the required letters. If a student has not followed the official procedure, a grievance may not be given full consideration.

If you have a grievance regarding the determination of eligible accommodations, the manner in which your accommodations were handled by a faculty/staff member or off-campus activity related to a course (i.e. internships, practicum, etc.) at Simmons College, please see the Policies and Procedures section.
