Southwestern Christian University Online Student Complaint Procedure
Southwestern Christian University aims to resolve each issue presented to ensure that each individual is treated fairly and in accordance with all Southwestern Christian University policies, procedures and standards of conduct. Students who desire to resolve a grievance should follow the University’s student grievance procedure found at the University website and in the Student Handbook. If you have not been able to resolve your problem through these established avenues and need assistance with concerns related to your University experience – academic or nonacademic, please contact the Vice President and Dean of Student Life.
If a student has gone through the university grievance procedure but feel the issue cannot be solved by the university, a complaint may be filed with Southwestern Christian University’s accreditation entity, The Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
The Higher Learning Commission
230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500
Chicago IL 60604
Instructions for filing a complaint with the HLC can be found here.
