Student Grievance Policy

North Alabama Dental Assisting Program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, or disability in its acceptance of students. Students may file a grievance when they believe they have been discriminated against in any of these areas.

The purpose of these grievance procedures is to resolve differences as fairly and expeditiously as possible while reserving the right of students and instructors.


  1. Students shall first confer with the person who took the action or made the ruling to which they object no later than ten (10) days following the event that prompted the grievance.
  2. If the difference is not satisfactorily resolved, the student may file a written statement setting for the nature of the grievance to Dr. Maggie McKelvey. The grievance shall include a full description of the grievance, times, dates and pertinent facts and the remedy sought by the student.
  3. Dr. McKelvey shall have a Student Grievance Panel (including Dr. McKelvey, an instructor and one student representative) which will have the power to make an appropriate investigation of the grievance and shall state the findings and make a recommendation.
  4. If the grievance is sustained by the panel, it will recommend appropriate action for relief of the grievance and communicate this in writing to the person(s) of whom the grievance was directed. If the findings of the panel do not sustain the grievance, the panel shall communicate this finding in writing to the student who filed the grievance. The ruling of the Student Grievance Panel is final.
