The U.S. Department of Education Regulation 34 CFR part 668.43 requires that MCC provide its students or prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with its accreditor and state approval or licensing entity.
MCC provides an internal complaint process that is outlined in the Student Handbook. Students and prospective students may also file complaints with MCC’s accrediting body, the Higher Learning Commission. This is a new regulation that requires independent, third party review of complaints. Additional information can be found on the Accreditation and State Regulatory Authorization webpage.
Distance Education students, who have completed the internal institutional grievance process, and the applicable state grievance process, may appeal non-instructional complaints to the Arizona Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (AZ SARA Council). For additional information on the complaint process, please visit the AZ SARA Complaint page.
