State-Based Student Complaints Process
The Iowa College Student Aid Commission (the Commission) has overarching, statutory authority under Iowa Code Chapter 261B to determine the registration (i.e., licensure or authorization) status of postsecondary educational institutions that operate at a physical location within the State of Iowa or that offer distance education courses and programs to Iowa residents. In addition, the Commission administers provisions of Iowa’s student consumer protection laws in Iowa Code Section 714.18, 714.19, 714.23, 714.24 that address financial responsibility for certain educational institutions, and, for proprietary institutions, a tuition refund policy for withdrawn students.
Persons who have questions about a postsecondary educational institution’s compliance with Iowa Code Chapter 261B, and Iowa Code Sections 714.18, 714.19, 714.23, and 714.24 should contact:
J. Carolyn Small
Postsecondary Registration Administrator
Iowa College Student Aid Commission
In addition, the Iowa College Student Aid Commission maintains a Constituent Request for Review process that meets the conditions of federal regulations in 34 CFR 600.9(a)(1). These regulations state that a postsecondary educational institution located in a State is legally authorized by the State, in part, if the State has a process to review and appropriate act on complaints concerning the institution. The Commission accepts complaints from any student attending any postsecondary educational institution located in Iowa, and from any Iowa resident attending a postsecondary educational institution located in any other State.
A student may initiate the Constituent Request for Review process at: http://www.iowacollegeaid.gov/constituentrequest.asp

From Career and Technical to Arts and Science Programs
The college reserves the right to refuse credit earned more than 10 years before the proposed program completion date. All credit earned at one of the colleges of EICC will transfer to another EICC college, with the limitations outlined above.
