5.4.12 Promptness

adopted: Feb-2021
last revised: Feb-2021

All allegations are acted upon in a reasonable amount of time once Richland Community College has received notice or a formal complaint. Complaints can typically take 60-90 business days to resolve. Exceptions and extenuating circumstances could cause a resolution to take longer, but Richland Community College will avoid all undue delays within its control.

Any time the general timeframes for resolution outlined in Richland Community College procedures will be delayed, Richland Community College through the Title IX Coordinator will provide written notice to the parties about the delay, the cause of the delay, and an estimate of the anticipated additional time that will be needed as a result of the delay.
