Student ID’S
       Help Desk - Ext. 1111
       Students living off campus must go to the Help Desk to obtain a Photo  ID. Each student must have an
       ID to check out Library materials, attend events around campus and pick-up financial aid refund checks
       in the business office.  Students must have Financial Clearance on their bill before an ID is issued. The ID
       card will have the student’s name, ID number, and a photo. The ID is valid for an entire academic year.
       Student ID’s are no longer available in the Student Records Office.  Students will be issued their first ID at
       no charge, but will be charged a replacement fee of $5.00 for the first replacement ID, and $20.00 for each
       additional replacement ID. Replacement fees must be paid in cash at the time the replacement ID is issued.
       Student Mailboxes
       Mail Room - Ext. 1043
       Students who live on campus are assigned a mailbox after completing a Request for Mailbox form. The
       form is available on the housing tab of Iowa Central’s home page or at the mail room. Incoming mail is
       processed Monday through Friday and will be available by 12:00 PM. Packages may also be received in
       the mail room. Lost keys can be replaced at a charge of $25.00. If the lost key is found, the charge will be
       credited to the student’s account. All students are required to do a mail room check out at the end of the
       spring semester. (If leaving the dorms mid-year, key must be returned before leaving.) Any student who
       does not turn in their key will be charged $25.00 for the replacement. There will be NO refunds after 30
       days. First class mail will be forwarded for four weeks, only if the check out process has been completed.

       Student Rights and Responsibilities
       Students of the College have both rights and responsibilities as described in the Iowa Central
       Community College Student Handbook and in Board Policy.  Iowa Central’s mission is to provide for
       the varied educational needs of the diverse student body through accessible, flexible, community
       centered programs with a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.  This can occur in an
       environment that fosters intellectual inquiry within a climate of academic freedom and integrity. Students
       and instructors are expected to promote these goals in the context of inclusiveness, mutual respect, and
       tolerance of others, as ideas are explored, facts gathered, opinions weighed, and conclusions drawn.
       Process for Student to Express Academic Concerns and Complaints
       From  time  to  time,  a  student  may  have  concerns  about  such  issues  as  scholastic  dishonesty,
       discrimination, disability accommodations, or grading grievance. If the student’s concern relates to:
         -  Educational records, the student should follow the review/grievance procedures in Board Policy
           Number 404; Student Handbook, Pages 15, 18 (FERPA)
         -  A finding of scholastic dishonesty, the student should follow the appeal process in Board Policy
           Number 407; Student Handbook, Page 35 (Scholastic Dishonesty)
         -  A student grade, the student should follow the review procedure in Board Policy Number 408;
           Student Handbook, Page 23 (Grade Appeal)
         -  Conduct by the instructor perceived by the student to be a violation of the College’s non-
           discrimination/harassment policy, the student should follow the complaint procedure in Board
           Policy Number 414; or Student Handbook, Page 24 (Harrassment)
         -  A student may have other academic concerns and complaints about a particular classroom
           experience,  specific  curricular  matters,  instructor  conduct  in  the  classroom  or  in  another
           instructional setting that adversely affects the learning environment, misuse of instructor authority
           to promote a political or social course within an instructional setting, inequities in assignments,
           scheduling of examinations at other than published times.  If such concerns arise the student
           should follow the procedure in Board Policy 415 described below:
           1. Ordinarily, the student should first attempt to resolve the concern with the instructor.
           2. If after meeting with the instructor, the student believes his/her concern is not resolved, or, if the
             student does not feel, for whatever reason, he/she can directly approach the instructor, the student
             should meet with the Dean of the department/program.  This meeting shall be scheduled within
             10 calendar days after meeting with the instructor.  The Dean shall investigate the concern fully,
             including meeting with the instructor and the student and attempt to resolve the concern.
           3. If the concern is not resolved to the satisfaction of the student, the student may submit within
             five calendar days after the meeting with the Dean, a written summary of his/her concern to
             the Vice President of Instruction.  The Vice President will confer with the Dean, the instructor,
             and the student in an attempt to resolve the concern.
