What should I do if a college or university violates my student rights in Kansas? VIDEO

College students in Kansas have various rights under federal and state laws. If a college or university in Kansas violates a student's rights, there are recourses. Some of the most common violations of students' rights are under Title VI, discrimination in education, Title VII, employment discrimination, Title IX, sex discrimination, and under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the ADA, reasonable accommodations for documented medical needs.

If there's a violation of student rights, there are different potential avenues for resolution. For a public college university, you could bring what's known as a 1983 claim, which is a violation of rights by a governmental body. For a public school, you can also bring a claim under the State Administrative Procedures Act, which specifies how the government must act and the remedies if it does not follow its procedures.

At public and private colleges and universities, you have also contractual rights under the school policies including its code of conduct. A student is entitled to rely on these rights and if the school fails to follow the contract, you can bring a claim for breach of contract. It's critical to have the appropriate support if you're addressing violation of students' rights, and having an experienced attorney advisor would be your best ally to do so.
