Title IV Student Complaint Process
The Higher Education Act (HEA) prohibits an institution of higher education from engaging in a "substantial misrepresentation of the nature of its educational program, its financial charges, or the employability of its graduates." 20 U.S.C. § 1094(c)(3)(A). Further, each state must have "a process to review and appropriately act on complaints concerning the institution including enforcing applicable state laws." 34 C.F.R. § 600.9. The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) maintains a process to investigate complaints of this nature brought by community and technical college students in the state of Washington.
