Filing Complaints

In Oct 29 2010, the U.S. Department of Education published a regulation which, among other provisions, required out-of-state providers of online and distance education to provide its students and prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with its accrediting agency and with the appropriate state agency. As out-of-state students are admitted into the college, the appropriate state agency complaint contacts will be published here.
