Complaint Process for Distance Education Students 

Every student deserves a positive educational experience. Sometimes a student’s experience may not be what they anticipate, and the student may have a concern or a complaint.

A student has the right to lodge a complaint or grievance.  The institution should ensure that all concerns and complaints of students are addressed fairly and are resolved promptly. Student complaints relating to consumer protection laws offered under the terms and conditions of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), must first be filed with the institution to seek resolution. 

SARA consumer protection provisions require the Institution’s Home State, through its SARA Portal Entity, to investigate and resolve allegations of dishonest or fraudulent activity by the state’s SARA-participating institutions, including the provision of false or misleading information.

Educational Requirements for Licensure or Certification by Program by State

US Department of Education regulations require UTHSC to provide information regarding whether completion of a program would be sufficient to meet licensure requirements in a state for a given occupation. NC-SARA requires UTHSC to supply contact information for licensure in locations where it cannot determine if programs would be sufficient for licensure. Licensure applicants are advised to seek additional information from the state and territories in which they seek employment as specific requirements may change.
