Federal regulations require institutions to provide contact information for filing a complaint with the institution's accrediting agency as well as the state agency where a prospective or current student resides. Carolinas College seeks to quickly resolve complaints and grievances. Students who are enrolled should follow the College's complaint, grievance and appeal procedure. However, if an issue is not resolved according to internal college procedures, a student has the right to file a complaint with the institution's regional accreditation agency (see above for link) or the state in which he or she resides.
Complaints regarding the College that cannot be resolved at the institutional level, particularly complaints regarding applicable state laws, may be directed to the Consumer Protection Division of the North Carolina Department of Justice. To file a complaint with the Consumer Protection Division of the North Carolina Department of Justice, please visit the State Attorney General’s web page. North Carolina residents may call (877) 566-7226. If you live outside of North Carolina, please call (919) 716-6000.
