​​Report a Student Complaint​

The Student Complaint Procedures are established so that students can resolve difficulties/problems they encounter in college-related activities. Student complaints are taken seriously; therefore, the complaint must be of a compelling, substantive, and verifiable nature. Repeated filings of the same complaint, filings of a frivolous nature, or capricious complaints against school personnel will be considered abuse of the student conduct and/or complaint process.

This form is only an intake form to start a conversation with the parties involved. Submitting this form does not start the ​COS Student Grievance process pursuant to AP 5530.

Report Sexual Misconduct / Title IX ​​

To create a safe campus, it is important that everyone has accurate information about confidential resources and reporting options. When sexual misconduct is not reported or taken seriously, it cannot be effectively addressed.

Many who experience sexual misconduct do not report it because they fear that nothing will happen or they will not be believed. COS takes all reports of sexual misconduct seriously and works with complainants to prevent and respond to retaliation. Those concerned about the consequences of reporting are encouraged to seek confidential assistance.

Sexual Misconduct includes sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking behaviors.
