Access and Grievance Policies for Students

Complaint and Conflict Resolution

If you have a complaint or issue with your online course, we have specific procedures in place to achieve resolution. For academic complaints, you would first start with your instructor. If that is not satisfactory, your issue will follow SCF Procedure 4.14.01 Student Request for Conflict Resolution as Related to Academic Matters. Further, Students are advise after exhausting the campus-based conflict resolution process, you may escalate your grievance to the Florida Department of Education. For more information, please visit the College Complaint Procedure Information page at This procedure ensures you will have a complaint mechanism, and that there will be no retaliation for pursuing resolution of the complaint. 

Distance education students who attend SCF from states other than Florida, and who have exhausted their options under Procedure 4.14.01, and with the Florida College System may appeal non-instructional complaints to the FL-SARA PRDEC Council.  For additional information on the complaint process, please visit the FL-SARA Complaint Process page at  (Note: non-instructional complaints do not include issues regarding grading.)
