Ombudsman Services

Are you a current or prospective WCC student with a concern about the College that you can’t resolve? Would you like to discuss it in a safe environment? Then you need to visit the Ombudsman/Dean of Students Office.

The dean’s office will try to find a solution that’s fair and works for everyone. It can:

  • Help resolve issues informally and formally
  • Provide coaching to help you resolve the issue yourself
  • Refer you to the proper WCC office to resolve your issue
  • Explain a policy or procedure that’s affecting you so that you better understand your situation
  • Offer information about how you can appeal College decisions
  • Assist you in considering your options

The dean’s office also does the following:

  • Reviews cases where students believe their MyWCC account or records have been accessed inappropriately
  • Considers requests for refund exceptions where a student is ineligible under WCC’s refund policy but believes that exceptional circumstances should result in a refund of tuition and fees
  • Enforces WCC’s policy that bans smoking anywhere on campus
  • Reviews situations of alleged student misconduct

If you’d like to speak to someone in the dean’s office, it’s best to make an appointment. If you wish to file a formal complaint against the College, that paperwork must be submitted to the Ombudsman/Dean of Students Office.

If you live out of state and have a complaint about an online WCC class, there’s a special process for you to follow to get your concern resolved.
