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 responsibility for certain educational institutions, and, for proprietary institutions, a tuition refund policy for withdrawn students.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
(515) 725-3413
Carolyn.small@iowa.gov

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 here new window.
