Temporary Medical Condition and Military Leave Procedure

NDSCS is committed to supporting the academic success of all students and recognizes that some life events inhibit this process or necessitate a temporary leave of absence. Examples of life events may include but are not limited to: temporary medical conditions (conditions that are expected to be resolved in a matter of weeks or a few months, e.g., injury, severe illness, or recovery from surgery), pregnancy/parenting, and military leave.   
The Student Advocate will attempt to assist students dealing with unforeseen life events. A procedure is in place for temporary medical conditions, pregnancy/parenting, and military leave. Please refer to the procedure that is appropriate for your situation.

Contact the Student Advocate at ndscs.studentadvocate@ndscs.edu.

Complaints to the North Dakota University System office

The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education has delegated to North Dakota University System (NDUS) college and university officials authority and responsibility to resolve student and other complaints. Absent applicable law or policy establishing another remedy, the first step in resolving student or other complaints or grievances is to attempt to resolve the matter directly with the administration of the involved institution under established institution complaint or grievance procedures. Every NDUS institution is required to establish, publish, and enforce policies related to redress of complaints and grievances – NDSCS concern page provides this information for NDSCS. With limited exceptions, a student or other person who contacts the NDUS office regarding complaints regarding NDUS institutions will be referred to college or university officials responsible for resolving those matters.
