  • To be submitted within 2 weeks of receiving the grade or decision:
    • Grade Appeal
    • Academic Progression Committee Decision Appeal
  • To be submitted at any time while still a student at the School:
    • Complaint about another studen
    • Complaint about an instructor in class
    • Complaint about a faculty or staff member outside of class
    • General Concern

In addition, any experience where a student acts in contrary to the expected code of conduct or student rights are violated should be reported and will be addressed. Information regarding student rights, responsibilities, and examples of conduct violations can be found on the RBHS Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Disciplinary Procedures.

After submitting a grievance, appeal or complaint through the Student Grievance Form, the Rutgers School of Public Health Office of Student Affairs will reach out to you about the next steps and if additional information is needed.
