Academic Concern Process

Academic Concern Process:


Step 1. If you have a concern about a grade, content of a course/lecture or other academic issue with an instructor, you must speak directly to the instructor involved. You can speak with the instructor during office hours, by college e-mail, by telephone or during a scheduled appointment. If you are uncertain how to speak with your instructor about your concern visit the following sites for suggestions.

The Central Arizona College Ombudsman Program is also available to help you in speaking to your instructor about a concern. For more information on the CAC Ombudsman Program please email Mary.Menchaca@centralaz.edu

Step 2 (if necessary). If you and the instructor cannot resolve the concern satisfactorily, then you should speak to the Division Chair or Department Director. If you need help in identifying the Division Chair or Department Director, click here.
