College students in Missouri have various rights under federal and state laws. If a college or a university in Missouri violates a student's rights, there are recourses. Some of the most common areas for violations 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 is a violation of student rights, there are different avenues for potential resolution. At a public college or university, you can bring what's known as a 1983 Claim, which is a violation of rights by a governmental body. At a public school, you can also bring a claim out of the State Administrative Procedures Act, which specifies how the government must act and the remedies if it does not follow its procedures.
Whether the school is public or private, you have contractual rights, under the school policies, including its code of conduct. You're 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 necessary support to help you address a violation of students' rights. Having an experienced attorney advisor will be your best ally to do so.
