Problems, Concerns, or Complaints

There are established procedures for resolving complaints from not only prospective and current students, but also community members. For example, as a standard practice, the first step should be to seek a resolution at the local level with the appropriate department. If the complainant does not feel that the issue has been solved at this level to his or her satisfaction, the complainant is able to pursue the matter through the established chain of command. The process must be clearly stated and in compliance with Federal regulation (HEA Title IV, CFR, Sections 600.9 and 668.4 (3) (b) since all Title IV eligible institutions must not only have, but also state its administered complaint process.  For more information please go to the Complaint Process web page
