  • Access to your academic records (including academic progress overview, grades, and class schedule)
  • Student Account information (including your ledger card, billing statements, and receipts)
  • Financial Aid Award letters of the past year.

    Student Grievance Procedures

    Sonoran Desert Institute is committed to creating a positive environment for all students. We have established processes and procedures to ensure students have a positive student experience throughout their time at SDI. Students should review SDI’s Student Grievance Procedures to determine the appropriate steps for quick resolution. If a resolution cannot be made internally, information on how to file a formal complaint can be found on the Student Grievance Procedures page as well.
