Student Grievance and Advocacy

The University of Houston-Downtown seeks to provide fair and objective procedures for addressing student complaints. The purpose of the Student Advocacy Form is to provide students with an avenue to submit a concern or complaint that could not be resolved directly with the involved individuals and/or departments.

All complaints should initially be addressed in accordance to the Student Handbook, UHD policies and procedures, and UH System Administrative Memoranda. If a process or procedure was not followed, the form will be forwarded to the appropriate department. Submitting this form does not absolve a student’s responsibility for following policies or procedures.

Please note that the Student Advocacy Form should not be used to submit concerns about sexual misconduct, discrimination of a protected class, academic and non-academic appeals, and student conduct.
  • For issues related to Title IX/Sexual Misconduct, please complete the Sexual Misconduct Form.
  • For issues related to discrimination of a protected class, please complete the Title IX Form.
  • For issues related to academic appeals, grades, or professor, please contact the academic department of the course.
  • For issues related to non-academic appeals, please complete the Appeal Request Form.
  • For issues related to student conduct, please complete the Student Conduct Incident Report Form.

NOTE: The Student Advocacy Form should not be used to report emergencies and/or criminal activity. Please direct emergencies and reports of a crime to UHD Police at 713-221-8065.

Written acknowledgement of receipt of the Student Advocacy Form can be expected within one (1) business day.
