WWCC has developed relationships with four-year colleges and universities to provide opportunities for Western graduates and
other community members who wish to continue their education by pursuing baccalaureate and masters degrees while remaining

On Campus (physical presence) Student Grievance Procedure
Students who believe the college or its employees have treated them unfairly or
inequitably may seek resolution through the student grievance policy. The full policy and
procedures are available online.
The Vice President of Student Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) is available to
review the policy with students. Students may not grieve college policies, procedures, or
regulations or sanction issued for code of conduct violations. Grievances may be addressed
through an informal resolution, formal resolution, or grievance hearing.
Distance Education Student Grievance Procedure
In the case of a student who is taking a distance education class and does not live in the
area, all meeting will be via phone or digital. Please contact the Vice President of Student
Learning at (email@example.com) to
begin this process.
If a student is not satisfied with the outcome of the institutional process, the distance
education complaint may then be brought to the state agency under the state reciprocal
agreement. To file a complaint with Wyoming, contact Larry Buchholtz at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, complaints about
grade appeals and conduct complaints are excluded through the state process and need to be
settled with Western Wyoming Community College.
