II. Investigation and Grievance Procedures

American InterContinental University is committed to the prompt and equitable resolution of all alleged or suspected violations of its Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy about which the school knows or reasonably should know, regardless of whether a complaint alleging a violation of this policy has been filed and regardless of where the conduct at issue occurred. The School’s ability to investigate in a particular situation, or the extent of the investigation in any given situation, may be affected by any number of factors, including whether the complainant is willing to file a complaint or to consent to an investigation, the location where the alleged conduct occurred, and the School’s access to information relevant to the alleged or suspected violation of this policy. The School is nonetheless committed to investigating all alleged and suspected violations of this policy to the fullest extent possible under the circumstances.

These Investigation & Grievance Procedures apply to all suspected or alleged violations of this policy and will be used in place of any “Student Grievance Policy” that may be contained in any School catalog, handbook, or other publication or appear on the School’s web site. In addition, any sanctions or other corrective actions imposed against students shall be imposed pursuant to these Investigation & Grievance Procedures, rather than pursuant to any “Student Code of Conduct Policy” or other set of policies and procedures governing student conduct, unless the School determines in its discretion that a Student Code of Conduct or other similar policy governing student conduct should be used to resolve a particular matter. In addition, the School may, upon finding good cause, modify these Investigation & Grievance Procedures in the interests of promoting full and fair resolution of suspected or alleged violations of this policy in accordance with applicable law.
