Complaint Procedures

Tillamook Bay Community College supports you and your right to make a complaint when you believe that you have been denied equal access in the form of appropriate accommodations or that you have experienced discriminatory treatment as described in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and The Americans with Disabilities Act. While we encourage you to resolve your concerns directly with the TBCC staff person involved, we recognize that this may not always be appropriate and offer the following informal and formal resolution procedures.

ADA Complaint Procedure

The College prohibits retaliation against any person who makes a good faith complaint of discrimination of harassment and retaliation against any person who in good faith cooperates in an investigation of alleged harassment or discrimination.

Resolving Concerns with General College Staff, Programs, Departments, and Organizations

You are encouraged to discuss your concerns with your Disability Services advisor. Your advisor can assist you in resolving concerns by clarifying your concerns and facilitating communication with the staff person, program, department, or organization. Any concerns that are not resolved must be reported to the Director of Student Services. Use the ADA Complaint Procedure link on the Disability Services main page to learn more about filing a formal complaint.
