Student Complaints

Written student complaints

Scope: Staff and students

Directives from the United States Department of Education and SACS principles 4.5 and 3.13.3 require institutions of higher education to establish procedures for resolving student complaints. Compliance requires the maintenance of records related to all written complaints from students along with a log recording a summary of the complaint, the person or office charged to resolve the complaint, and the resolution or actions taken in response to the complaint. A written complaint from a student received by an office for redirection to another appropriate office becomes the responsibility of the receiving office.

Records associated with the written complaint along with the information included in the log that contain personally identifiable information about students may be subject to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and should be protected against improper disclosure.

The records and logs are subject to examination by the United States Department of Education, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, and the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Definition of written student complaint

Complaints are expressions of dissatisfaction or formal allegations against AOMA, its units, its faculty, and its students. Examples would include grade appeals, academic dishonesty, sexual misconduct, harassment and discrimination, disability, financial aid, and those issues specifically identified in the policies listed below.

Grievance policies and complaint resolution

The various grievance policies include methods for resolving complaints. The nature of the student’s complaint will follow the resolution procedures of the appropriate grievance policy. The following offices are required to maintain logs:

  • Dean of students (includes student services, registrar, academic advising, financial aid)
  • Academic program directors (includes library and clinical education)
  • Director of operations, (includes operations, admissions, facilities, finance, veterans’ affairs, clinic and retail operations, information technology)
