If the resolution of any such complaint shall be documented by a statement signed by the student and Atlantic Cape that the complaint was resolved and describing the manner in which it was resolved. If the complaint is not resolved to the complainant’s satisfaction in a timely manner, the student may initiate a formal grievance process as described below.
