What are the Online Learning Complaint Procedures?

All student grievances with online courses are to follow the same procedures as on-campus courses. Students taking online classes offered by Hudson Valley Community College while residing in states other than New York should attempt to resolve any issues or complaints with the college first. The college's complaint procedures, including the Grade Grievance Procedure, as well as procedures for complaints concerning bias and discrimination are available in the College Catalog, under [Loading Policies and Procedures link…].

If an issue cannot be resolved internally, an out-of-state student may file a complaint with the New York State Department of Education. SARA for Students provides resources relating to state authorization of distance education.

This is in compliance with U.S. Department of Education's Program Integrity Regulations related to State Authorization.
