Anderson University maintains compliance with applicable federal and state statutes related to private institutions of higher education including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), as amended; the Student Right to Know Act, as amended; and the Solomon Amendment. In compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1991, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended, the university does not discriminate in its educational programs or admissions procedures.

Student and Prospective Student Complaints
The Commission for Higher Education is responsible for responding to formal complaints against public, independent non-profit and proprietary institutions of higher education in Indiana. While the Commission has limited authority over colleges and universities, and cannot offer legal advice or initiate civil court cases, Commission staff will review submitted complaints and work with student complainants and institutions. Submit a complaint online through the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
Anderson University participates in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) as an approved Indiana NC-SARA institution. In full compliance with federal rules, please consider contacting the Indiana Commission for Higher Education for Indiana’s higher education complaint resolution process. Students taking classes online and not located in Indiana, please click here to find the appropriate place to file a complaint for your state.

FORMAL PROCESS FOR STUDENT COMPLAINTS
Anderson University values student feedback that can help the institution determine effectiveness and clarify and improve processes, policies, and procedures. In recognition that, on occasion, events arise in which students have complaints that fall outside of other institutional policies developed to address student concerns the university has a process whereby students may submit a formal written complaint.
If a student wishes to lodge a more formal complaint this must be done so in writing using the following complaint form. Submission of this form goes to the executive assistant to the president, who determines who will respond and address the written complaint. The designated person will be notified and will respond within five business days of receipt of the complaint with the response copied to the executive assistant to the president.
If an issue cannot be resolved by the university’s internal processes students may file a formal complaint with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education at https://www.in.gov/che/2744.htm.
The Formal Process for Student Complaints is not for a routine decision (e.g. grade change, requirement waiver, etc.) or for an appeal or a grievance for which a defined process already exists (e.g. grade appeal, academic integrity, Title IX/sexual misconduct, racial harassment, etc.).
TRACKING FORMAL COMPLAINT INFORMATION
All formal written complaints meeting the relevant criteria and deemed of sufficient substance will be tracked by the Office of the President. The database tracking system includes the following elements:
- Date complaint received
- Student(s) identified with complaint
- Nature of complaint
- Office assigned to address the complaint
- Steps taken to resolve complaint
- Institution’s final decision
- External actions by complainant (e.g., lawsuit, EEOC, OCR, etc.)
STUDENT COMPLAINT FORM
A formal complaint must be submitted in writing to the [assistant to the president] within sixty (60) days of the event that triggered the complaint. Written complaints must be submitted on the Formal Student Complaint Form here.
