Registering a Complaint with the University or an Accrediting Body

  • The University takes active steps to provide a positive learning environment and resources to assist students in meeting their educational goals. Though it always is the University's desire to see students have a dispute-free experience, the University understands that sometimes challenges will arise. While students are able to file a complaint at an external agency, the University provides several options for internally resolving a dispute. The University offers these internal dispute resolution options through the Student Dispute Resolution Center (Center). The Center provides the University of Arizona Global Campus students, prospective applicants, alumni, former students, and others with concerns about something relating to the student experience with an opportunity to swiftly and fairly resolve any confusion, frustration, or issue. Individuals with an escalated dispute will meet with one of the Center's trained dispute resolution professionals, who will review the situation and guide the individual to the process that is most appropriate for the nature of the concern. Individuals will have the ability to resolve their concerns through informal mediation or facilitation or through the formal grievance process. (For more information about the Center, please visit the website.)

    Located within the Center, the Office of Student Facilitation and Mediation provides informal, confidential, and voluntary dispute resolution avenues. Impartial facilitators help students negotiate a confidential, informal agreement with the University. This process operates primarily through informal, interest-based mediation and is designed to allow for creativity and flexibility through joint problem-solving.

    Another aspect of the Center involves the formal grievance process for students. The Office of Student Grievance Resolution addresses formal student complaints, also known as grievances. During the formal grievance process, an impartial administrator will thoroughly investigate the facts relating to the student concern and ensure that the student receives a written response to the concerns from the University.

    Any student may contact a specific accrediting body directly to register a complaint in accordance with individual accreditor guidelines.

  • Students may file a complaint by contacting the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), the University’s institutional accreditor. Any student desiring to file a complaint must satisfy specific criteria as published in the official Complaint and Third-Party Comment Policy and must submit the required Complaint Form. The policy and form are available for download at https://www.wscuc.org/search/site/complaint.

  • Students may file a complaint with the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) via email ([email protected]) or by regular mail to International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE), 11257 Strang Line Road, Lenexa, KS 66215, USA.

  • Accredited programs are subject to complaints from students and other public stakeholders. The Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) will initiate the required process for investigating these concerns if they target non-compliance issues related to the Standards. Complaints must not be anonymous and must show evidence that steps to reach a resolution at the sponsoring institution have been exhausted. Students should review the steps for initiating the CAHIIM Complaint Process and contact CAHIIM staff ([email protected]) to discuss filing a complaint before submission.

  • Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Complaint Process Inquiries about baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs and nurse residency programs can be forwarded to Benjamin Murray, Deputy Executive Director at (202) 887-6791 ext. 275 or [email protected]. Members of the CCNE staff are available to assist you in a timely and professional manner.
