Student Grievance and Complaint Process

As a caring community, New Mexico State University (NMSU) is committed to providing the highest level of service and quality to all students. Integral to that commitment, NMSU recognizes the student’s right to file a complaint and provides support for grievance procedures. For more information visit Student Help and Complaint Process.

For all students, it’s highly recommended that they attempt to resolve their grievance at the institutional level using the processes defined in the Student Handbook for Student Academic Grievance and Student Non-Academic Grievance Policies.
