Student Ombudsman

The associate dean of academic affairs and institutional accreditation serves as the student ombudsman, or student advocate for certain specific issues. These areas are limited to unresolved disputes concerning:

  1. Student access to courses
  2. Credit granted toward the degree

The student ombudsman is not involved with entry into limited access or selected admissions programs except as related to the two areas listed above. The student ombudsman should be contacted after a student has attempted to resolve the problem with the appropriate PHSC personnel and does not feel proper procedures were followed. Students should contact the student ombudsman by completing a Student Ombudsman form. This form is available in the Student Affairs office on each campus.
