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:
- Complaints that allege violations of State Consumer protection laws that include, but are not limited, to fraud and false advertising;
- Complaints that allege violations of State laws or rules relating to the licensure of postsecondary institutions; and/or
- 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.
- Academics (schools and colleges, academic achievement)
- Student Financial Services (tuition and fees)
- Financial Aid (loans, scholarships, grants)
- Enrollment Services (academic records)
- Student Affairs (student activities, housing)
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.
