regardless of when you learned of it. You may only file a grievance if you are a current student or if you were a student no more than 30 days before filing.
Step 5: Pick up a Student Grievance form from the Office of Student Development, the Office of College Life or the vice president of Student Services. You can receive assistance with completing the form from any faculty or staff member.
Step 6: File your completed Student Grievance form with the Office of Student Development in Campus Center Room 165. Please do not return the completed Grievance form to any other office. You will receive acknowledgement that your grievance was received, usually within two weeks.
Step 7: The Grievance Review Board will review your grievance and decide if it meets the standards for filing and for further consideration. The Office of Student Development will contact you if the board agrees to schedule a hearing.
Step 8: The nature of the hearing will differ according to the circumstances and the discretion of the grievance officer. You and the others involved can be accompanied by, or represented by, any other individual who is not an attorney. You may purchase a copy of the official record of the hearing. Step 9: The Grievance Review Board will try to decide – within 14 days after the hearing – the outcome of your grievance and whether you are entitled to any relief. The board will forward its recommendation to the dean of Student Development, who will forward it to the college president. Step 10: The president or the president’s designee will have the final decision regarding the outcome of your grievance. If any violation is determined to be the result of a district rule, or some other factor outside the college’s control, the president
or the president’s designee will recommend appropriate action to the district chancellor or trustees. The president’s office will notify you in writing of the outcome.
The following information on completion and transfer rates is provided under the federal Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act.
Fall 2016 Cohort
■ Completion rate: 64.8% ■ Transfer rate: 5.26%
These rates are based on tracking a cohort of all certificate-, degree- and transfer- seeking first-time, full-time students over a three-year period beginning in fall 2016. These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at the college, nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period.
For this cohort, the completion rate indicates those students who attained a certificate or degree or became “transfer prepared” during a three-year period from fall 2016 to spring 2019. Students who have completed 90 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better are considered “transfer prepared.” The transfer rate indicates those students who transferred to another post- secondary institution prior to attaining a degree or certificate, or becoming “transfer prepared” during a five-semester period from spring 2017 to spring 2019.
Also in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, De Anza College provides a crime statistics report. See "Crime Statistics (Clery Act)" on page 28. Current information is available at deanza. edu/police/clerystatistics.
When a student receives a substandard grade (D+, D, D-, F, NC or NP) at De Anza, they may petition to have that grade excluded from their GPA after sub- sequently completing an equivalent course at another regionally accredited college or university. The student's academic transcript will be annotated to reflect exclusion of the previously recorded coursework with the substandard grade, for purposes of GPA calculation and for all considerations associ- ated with awarding certificates and degrees. Replacement with a grade of Pass/No Pass is not permitted, as it does not improve the student's GPA. All grades remain on the academic transcript, and some transfer institutions may require recalculation of the GPA to include both the substandard grade and the subsequent grade.
When submitting this petition, the student must
■ Attach a copy of their transcript, and either the course outline
of record or the course catalog description to confirm course equivalency
■ Make sure that an official (sealed) transcript from the other regionally accredited institution is submitted to De Anza’s Admissions and Records Office before the petition is filed
■ Complete the petition form
by providing the student’s information, the De Anza College course identifier, the date the
De Anza course was completed and the initial grade, as well as the equivalent course identifier, date repeated and grade earned upon repetition
■ Obtain a counselor’s approval for the petition if the course is clearly equivalent in ASSIST or C-ID
■ Obtain approval from a De Anza faculty member in the relevant discipline and the division dean, after meeting with a counselor,
if the course is not in ASSIST or C-ID
