OUT-OF-STATE ACADEMIC STUDENT COMPLAINT PROCEDURE

In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunities Act of 2008, the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) conducted a Negotiated Rule Making Process in 2010, and institutions offering distance education must provide enrolled and prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with its accrediting agency and with the appropriate state agency for handling complaints in the student's state.

Students enrolled in online classes at Blue Mountain Community College who reside out-of-state should follow the Complaint Procedures listed for Blue Mountain's students rights and responsibilities or http://bluecc.edu/support-services/information/student-complaint-process to resolve concerns. Online students have the same rights and responsibilities as those students enrolled in on-campus courses.

 

Complaints are addressed through informal and formal processes. It is suggested that students first try to resolve an issue through the informal report and resolution process before submitting a formal complaint.
