Student Grievance


It is the policy of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to administer its educational programs both on and off campus in a manner that is fair, equitable, academically sound and in accordance with the appropriate regulations and criteria of its governing board, accrediting association, and federal and state laws and regulations. To this end, Worldwide students are provided an opportunity to express any complaints, grievances, or disputes.

Students are encouraged to first address any issues with the faculty or staff member for which the grievance is based. If unresolved, the student should complete the Grievance (Complaint) form. The Student Affairs Office will review the grievance and ensure that it is forwarded to the appropriate department or college if necessary for their review and action. The department or college will communicate back to the Student Affairs Office their decision, or recommended action. The Student Affairs Office will communicate with the student and provide further guidance if appropriate.

If a satisfactory resolution cannot be reached through the Institution, please see the State Authorization page for your State’s specific process for filing a grievance. Students will not be subject to adverse action by the Institution as a result of filing a grievance.

At any time, students may contact the Student Ombudsman to gain advice and specific direction in seeking a resolution.
