Student Complaint Procedure

Institutional Student Complaint Procedure

In general, all students should first attempt to resolve concerns orally or in writing with the individual(s) most directly connected to their complaints. If that is not appropriate or successful, students attending onsite should direct their concerns to the Student Central manager or to the academic excellence specialist at the location they attend. Students attending online should file their complaints with the Student Central manager. Complaints should be filed by the student as soon as possible so that they can be addressed contemporaneously by DeVry.

For all students, complaints involving allegations of disability or sex-based discrimination or harassment should be filed with the Title IX coordinator (see Title IX Information). All other complaints of discrimination or harassment should be filed with the Complaint Administrator for the location they attend. The Complaint Administrator may partner with Human Resources when addressing the discrimination or harassment complaint. Please refer to the student handbook for more details.

Accreditor and State Agency Complaint Information

Federal regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Education require institutions to provide to students or prospective students contact information needed to file a complaint with its accrediting agency and with relevant state agencies.  This list includes contact information for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.  It should not be construed as informative of what agencies regulate DeVry University or in what states the institution is authorized or required to be authorized.   Information pertaining to state authorization can be found here

Please note, each state and/or agency has a specific process for handling complaints. If a student wishes to file a complaint, they must review the information on the applicable agency's website and follow that agency's established process.  Many states require that students first attempt to work with the institution to address their concerns before filing a formal complaint at the state level.
