Student Guidance Process

The College of Pharmacy encourages students to seek resolution of student concerns by discussing them informally with the relevant faculty or staff member who is most associated with the matter. Students should approach the issue of concern professionally providing verifiable information relevant to the situation.  The relevant faculty or staff member with whom a concern is raised by a student is expected to deal with the matter in an open and professional manner and to take reasonable and prompt action towards informal resolution. A student who is uncertain about how to seek informal resolution of a concern is encouraged to seek advice and direction from the Office of Student and Professional Affairs(OSPA) located in Bienville room 176.
