If you have questions, concerns, comments or complaints we want to know about them. We care about your training and want to improve where possible. Should a student or parent believe there is cause for grievance, he/she should discuss the grievance with the person(s) involved (including: instructor, student, Student Services staff, Administrators, etc.) in an effort to resolve the grievance mutually and informally.
When attempts to resolve the grievance informally are unsuccessful, or the grievant still does not feel justified; he/she must submit a written, dated, and signed grievance within (90) days of the occurrence to the Vice-President of Administrative Services. The student will need to submit the written grievance document to the Appeals Committee for consideration.
Details and instructions for completing these processes as well as the Student Code of Conduct and the Student Grievance Policy and Procedures can be found in the MTech Student Handbook.
Students who are not able to remedy their grievances through the above mentioned processes cano file their complaints with the Utah System of Technical Colleges. Their contact information can be found at the following link: http://ucat.edu/contact-us/
