Petition for an American Student Bill of Rights:

Students in the United States are blessed to have legal rights, freedoms and protections. These include constitutional, civil, contract, consumer rights and rights specific to higher education. They are scattered, however, through a number of legal documents and court decisions making it hard for students to find them.

Please sign this petition for the creation of a National Student Bill of Rights which clearly states what rights exist to protect students and how they are applied in institutions of higher education.

It doesn't matter which country you live in or where you are from, please, show your support. Press the sign petition button at the bottom of the page. You have nothing to lose and students have everything to gain.

We the people of the United States of America call for:

a) The creation of a Student Bill of Rights which clearly states those rights pertaining to students at federally funded institutions of higher education.

b) Clear application of student's constitutional, civil, contract and consumer rights as they are applied in the context of higher education at institutions of higher education.

c) Clear application of rights to the educational environment, including the institutional, department, classroom, support service, student government, student club, sport and residence environments.

d) Clear wording which the average student can understand at a grade twelve reading level without legal interpretation.

e) Access to this document on the homepage of every institution of higher education in the United States of America and also on the Department of Education website.

f) Provision of a copy of this document to every student who inquires about or applies for admission.
