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 Bulletin, Graduate 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, a student who still believes that their concerns have not been adequately addressed may file a complaint against the university with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE Student Complaints).
Distance education students who have not successfully resolved their issue may also file a complaint with NC-SARA (Student Complaint Process).
Professional Licensure Disclosure
Per U.S. federal regulations and in compliance with the NC-SARA, The University of Tulsa provides disclosures related to the educational requirements for professional licensure and certification. Professional licensure and certification disclosures can be found at Student Consumer Information – Mandatory Professional Licensure Disclosures.
