How can I get assistance if I have a complaint, issue, concern, or problem with a college employee or department, another student or an instructional situation?

If a student has a complaint, issue, concern, or problem with a College employee or department, another student or an instructional situation as described in 5-601C, the first step is to contact the Student Mediation, Assistance and Advocacy Program (MAAP) Office. The Office is charged with assisting students and resolving their issues informally. Referral to MAAP Initial contact for a student when there is a complaint, issue, concern or problem should be the MAAP Office. The MAAP Office should be contacted before contacting a dean or other College official. The student may refer themselves directly to the Office or they may be referred by a College employee (faculty, staff or administrator). A back-up referral option will be identified in the case it might be necessary. Process The MAAP Office can provide the following services:
  • Describe, explain and/or advise a student about the process they should use if a situation occurs in which the student is seeking guidance.
  • Conduct an intake of the relevant information and complaint.
  • Assist the student if an advocacy situation exists.
  • Assist the student in interpreting and applying proper procedures as is appropriate and navigate the College system.
  • Provide information for all students in relation to rights and responsibilities.
  • Provide mediation services; student to student, student to employee, as appropriate.
  • Refer students to College resources or community resources, as is necessary.
If working with and through the MAAP Office does not lead to a resolution the student will be referred to another institutional process.

Does Aims have student health insurance?

Aims does not offer student health insurance nor does the College require proof of insurance for enrollment. The mandatory Student Accident Insurance Coverage, paid by student fees, is administered in the Student Leadership & Development Office. The insurance only covers a student while on the campus or at a campus class/event off campus. A student must file an Accident/Incident Report within 24 hours following an accident/incident. The student must come to the Student Leadership & Development Office in the College Center to fill out the Student Statement form before the claim can be processed. All coded medical bills resulting from an accident/incident on campus must be presented by the student to the Student Leadership & Development Office as soon as possible for processing of insurance claims.
