Discrimination Complaints

The district's Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Policy includes complaint procedures for students who experience discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, marital status, national origin, ethnic identification, age, disability, pregnancy or status as a Vietnam-era veteran. In addition, the district’s Sexual Harassment Policy forbids intimidation or harassment of a sexual nature and provides a complaint procedure for students who experience sexual harassment.

Discrimination Complaint Procedure

A student who feels he/she has been or is being subjected to discriminatory treatment, including sexual harassment, or who has learned of such unlawful discrimination in his or her official capacity, should immediately contact the office of the vice president, student services. If the complainant is not satisfied with the final decision, he/she may file a complaint with the Office of the State Chancellor for Community Colleges within 30 days of the determination of the board.

The student can complete the form on the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office website.

UCSB Transfer Student

I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
