Student Complaints and Grievances

In accordance with the U.S. Department of Education Program Integrity Rule, 34 C.F.R. Part 600.9, the Kansas Board of Regents has adopted a process to review and appropriately act on student complaints concerning the six state universities.

If you as a student have a complaint alleging university activity, or a university employee act or omission, that is proscribed by Kansas Board of Regents or Kansas State University institutional policies, Heather Reed, Associate Dean/Director of Student Life, at hreed@ksu.edu or 532-6432 can help you decide on the appropriate channel for addressing your grievance and help you work toward a resolution.  This process is explained in the university's Policy Regarding Student Complaints.

If after exhausting all available institutional processes a student’s complaint remains unresolved, the student may make a complaint to the Kansas Board of Regent's office, in writing, by completing and submitting a complaint form.

More information on KBOR's policy can be found here.

Students may also make a complaint to the Higher Learning Commission at: http://www.ncahlc.org/information-for-the-public/complaints.html
