STUDENT COMPLAINT CONTACT INFORMATION BY STATE

Students who have complaints that have not been resolved through contact with the University may seek advisement from the appropriate office in the student's state of residence, listed below.

Note: This list includes contact information for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories and should not be construed as informative of what agencies regulate the institution or in what states the institution is authorized to operate.
