Compliance/Allegation Procedures

The Division of Higher Education does not intervene in the internal procedures of colleges and universities, but does, however, respond to allegations that raise significant questions about the school’s compliance with the NH Code of Administrative Rules, Chapter Hedc 400Acrobat Reader ( Degree-Granting Higher Education Institutions With A Physical Presence In New Hampshire). If the allegation is applicable to a program that is approved for veterans, then compliance with the applicable Code of Federal Regulations shall be reviewed.

Before submitting an allegation, it is important that students first contact the appropriate official(s) at the institution (college, university, career school, or training establishment) they are attending, following the grievance procedure outlined in that institution’s catalogue.

All allegations should be specific in describing the nature of the allegation and relevant information: the name of the parties involved, including witnesses, dates, the policy or procedure violated (if known), the course/program, the name of the institution, and contact information. In addition, please include any supporting material that substantiates your allegation. The student should anticipate that information will be shared with the institution.
