Student Complaints Regarding Distance Learning
New York State Residents
SUNY students should attempt to resolve complaints with the campus itself. However, any New York State resident who is unable to resolve the problems should contact:
State University of New York System Administration
State University Plaza
Albany, NY 12246
Non-New York State Residents
Students should try to resolve the complaint with campus personnel first. If the problem does not get resolved, students can work with an agency in their home state to have their complaint addressed. The U.S. Department of Education regulations require each State to have a process to handle complaints for all institutions in the State, except Federally run institutions (including the service academies) and tribal institutions such as tribally controlled community colleges.
The State Contact Information at the linked list has been collected by the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO), and it will be updated as additional information becomes available. SHEEO provides further resources relating to state authorization of distance education at http://sheeo.org/stateauth/stateauth-home.htm. Students should contact the agency listed in their home state if they seek further assistance.
