In cases of student grievance or disciplinary matters, where it is impractical for a distance education student to appear in person to be heard, to afford the student due process and expedient resolve of issues, special accommodations may be made such as: written statements, telephone conferences, electronic mail, video tape, video conference, or similar means of communication. Beaufort County Community College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates. Distance learning students should contact state and federal agencies if they have complaints regarding accreditation or licensing issues.
