Student Complaint Process
Under 34 CFR 600.9(a)(1), an institution is legally authorized by the State if the State has a process to review and appropriately act on complaints concerning the institution. The Iowa College Student Aid Commission makes that student complaint process available to all students attending schools located in Iowa, and all Iowa residents who attend any school in the United States. A student may file a formal complaint with the Commission using its online Student Complaint Form.
