Agency Contact Information for Complaints

Vatterott strongly encourages students to seek resolution of any concern through the Student Grievance Policy outlined in the Campus Catalog, so that the school may have the opportunity to address and resolve the concern.  In addition, students with complaints or concerns may at any time contact Vatterott’s Administrator of Student Affairs via email at studentaffairs@vatterott.edu.  However, as is also noted in the Campus Catalog, students may at any time choose to file a complaint with any one of the school’s regulators. 

The names of the organizations that accredit, approve, or license each Vatterott school and its programs are detailed in the current Campus Catalog for that location, along with contact information for each such organization.  The Campus Catalog for each Vatterott school is available at www.vatterott.edu/catalogs.

We also have provided a list containing the contact information for all accreditors and state agencies that receive and act on complaints from students attending postsecondary institutions throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.  We provide this comprehensive list because a student wishing to file a complaint might choose to do so with his or her school’s accreditor, the agency that authorizes the institution to operate in the school’s home state, or with the agency that authorizes postsecondary institutions to operate in the student’s state of residence.  States, through the relevant agencies or Attorney Generals Offices will accept complaints regardless of whether an institution is required to be licensed in that state.

Information regarding the institution’s accreditor and any agency that authorizes the institution to operate is located in the campus catalog.
