Integrity Complaint Process

Fordham University desires to provide all students with an exceptional educational experience and therefore seeks to resolve student complaints in a timely and effective manner.

The U.S. Department of Education requires all Universities to offer students a procedure to address the following concerns:

  1. Complaints that allege violations of State Consumer protection laws that include, but are not limited, to fraud and false advertising;
  2. Complaints that allege violations of State laws or rules relating to the licensure of postsecondary institutions; and/or
  3. Complaints relating to the quality of education or other State or accreditation requirements.

Students should first contact the appropriate Fordham University administrative office regarding their complaint.

If a student believes that the University’s internal procedures have not adequately resolved the complaint, the student may contact the NY State Department of Education.
