1. Student Complaints Notice

Current and prospective students who experience a problem, or have a concern or complaint relating to the University’s policies and consumer protection issues are encouraged to address the matter first with personnel in the office or the department that led to the complaint alleged. ITU desires to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an efficient, fair and amicable manner.

Students will be provided with the guidance on the appropriate process for addressing particular issue and should not hesitate to contact a faculty member, or any other staff person to address their problem.

Formal procedure to resolve academic grievances, complaints, and concerns made by a student arising from an alleged action of the University or any of its faculty members, administrators, staff or students are found in ITU’s Student Code of Conduct, under Academic Grievance Procedures.

If you are current or prospective student and your complaint has not been resolved at the University level, you may pursue your complaint as follows:

If your complaint concerns University’s compliance with academic program quality and accrediting standards, you may present your complaint to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) here. WASC is the agency that accredits ITU’s academic programs.
