Student Feedback Process

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) is committed to incorporating feedback from students, employees, visitors and the public into college operations. Individuals have the right to file informal concerns regarding NWTC's personnel, facilities, academic issues or any allegation of discrimination. NWTC uses feedback to make improvements to services or in teaching and learning. Students who wish to file a concern can do so by submitting the Student Feedback form

A concern is a notification of dissatisfaction with a person, department, service or information that requires NWTC to gather information and/or work towards resolution with the person submitting the form. By submitting this form, an individual is acknowledging that they have already met with the party they are dissatisfied with and that they were unable to come to an acceptable resolution to the situation.

Students who wish to appeal a grade will need to follow the Grade Appeal Process.

Individuals providing feedback through the suggestion, concern or grievance processes shall be free from any retaliation from any faculty or staff person.
