Office of Student Judicial Affairs

The Office of Student Judicial Affairs (OSJA) serves to facilitate the resolution of disputes between students and the administration or faculty through both formal and informal measures. To this end, its primary responsibility lies in the adjudication of student appeals and grievances through formal reviews by committee when informal measures do not achieve a satisfactory resolution.

Upon appropriate referral, OSJA also arbitrates academic and nonacademic student problems and issues that are unresolved through regular processes and procedures.

Students with a documented disability may also direct requests for reasonable accommodations through OSJA in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The Office of Student Judicial Affairs (OSJA) serves to facilitate the resolution of disputes between students and the administration or faculty through both formal and informal measures. To this end, its primary responsibility lies in the adjudication of student appeals and grievances through formal reviews by committee when informal measures do not achieve a satisfactory resolution. Students are encouraged to seek an informal resolution of disputes as a preliminary measure in lieu of formal measures.

The OSJA may also intervene, upon appropriate referral, when students experience academic or nonacademic problems and issues that remain unresolved after regular processes and procedures have been utilized. Similarly, the OSJA may intervene in the event a student encounters an atypical problem or issue that necessitates such intervention when regular processes and procedures may not be applicable.

The OSJA functions independently of the Fischler College’s degree programs and, as such, maintains a neutral stance in its review and equitable resolution of contested decisions and student concerns. Because of its independence, the OSJA does not represent an appropriate forum for registering complaints against members of the faculty, staff, or administration.

The OSJA also serves students with disabilities through the provision of reasonable accommodations. Qualified individuals with a documented disability may formally request reasonable accommodations through OSJA.

The mission of the Office of Student Judicial Affairs (OSJA) is to facilitate the resolution of disputes between students and the administration or faculty by providing a forum for fair and impartial review. To this end, OSJA offers support to students through its appeals process of review by committee to arrive at equitable resolutions.
