Complaint Process

Mitchell College Complaint Process

Mitchell College’s complaint policy is available here. You may submit a complaint using this form.

Please contact one of the following individuals with questions or concerns related to their respective areas of oversight:

Academic Concerns / Academic Affairs:

State of CT Complaint Process

Mitchell College participates in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), which allows institutions offering distance education outside of their home state to enroll students under uniform procedures. The initial responsibility for the investigation and resolution of complaints from students participating in distance education programs at Mitchell College resides with Mitchell College.

A student must first attempt to resolve a complaint by exhausting Mitchell College’s established internal complaint process (see above). The Connecticut Office of Higher Education will not investigate complaints filed by students who have not first sought a resolution with the institution (absent extenuating circumstances). If all remedies at the Mitchell College level have been exhausted and the complaint remains unresolved, the student may file a complaint with the Connecticut Office of Higher Education.

Pursuant to federal regulations and the terms of SARA, the Connecticut Office of Higher Education is responsible for the investigation and resolution of out-of-state student complaints against institutions of higher education based in Connecticut and offering distance education via SARA when complaints are not resolved by the subject institution (in this case, Mitchell College).

All documentation related to the complaint must be provided to the Connecticut Office of Higher Education by the student as part of a complaint filing. The office will then process the complaint and provide copies of all documents filed with the complaint to the institution, which then has 20 days to respond. After receiving a response and conducting an investigation, the Connecticut Office of Higher Education will issue a Findings Report to all parties. The findings report is final.

Connecticut Office of Higher Education
All correspondence, including institutional applications and student complaints, should be sent via email or post to:

Emily Bjornberg SARA Coordinator
Office of Higher Education
450 Columbus Boulevard, Suite 707
Hartford, CT 06103-1841
Email: Emily.Bjornberg@ct.gov

NOTES:

  •  Issues regarding student life, such as discipline, grading, etc., fall solely within the purview of Mitchell College and are not generally investigated by the Connecticut Office of Higher Education. (This office also does not investigate anonymous complaints or provide legal advice.)
  • Connecticut students enrolled in a distance education program offered by a SARA institution based in another state should contact the portal agency in that state to pursue the complaint process.
  • California is not a member of SARA; online/distance learning students residing in that state are advised to contact the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.
