Resolution of Student Complaints

Complaints or Appeals Regarding Academic Decision

The University of Tulsa distinguishes between general (non-academic) complaints and complaints pertaining to academic decisions, such as grades or application of academic policies. All academic policies and decisions are the responsibility of the appropriate college or school. Those procedures are defined in the relevant The University of Tulsa Undergraduate BulletinGraduate Bulletin or Law School Bulletin. Where there are deadlines, students must meet deadlines for filing appeals. After students have made an appropriate attempt to resolve the academic concern informally, students are invited to contact the associate dean of the college or school for assistance. Student Complaint Policy

After the university’s internal complaint process has been exhausted, an out-of-state online student who wants to appeal a complaint do so to the OSRHE here: (OSRHE SARA Student Complaints).
