Other Non-Academic Complaints

The administration, faculty and staff of Eastern International College maintain an open-door policy for students to voice their concerns or complaints. Any student, who has a grievance or complaint, should follow the grievance protocol, as outlined below:

Level 1: The student attempts to handle the grievance with the applicable official in a calm, professional manner.

Level 2: If the grievance cannot be settled at this level, the student may request intervention from the Department Chair.

Level 3: The Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs convene a committee to review the grievance. The student who filed the grievance will be asked to submit all supporting documents and may be asked to appear in person if the committee decides it is necessary. The Vice President for Academic Affairs informs the student of the committee’s decision.

Level 4: If a student does not feel that the College has adequately addressed a complaint or concern, the student may consider contacting the President if it was not resolved by the academic committee.

Level 5: If a student does not feel that the College has adequately addressed a complaint or concern, the student may consider contacting the Accrediting Commission. The Student Complaint Procedure is as follows:

Student Complaint Procedure

Schools accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) must have a procedure and operational plan for handling student complaints. If a student does not feel that the school has adequately addressed a complaint or concern, the student may consider contacting the Commission. All complaints reviewed by the Commission must be in written form and should grant permission for the Commission to forward a copy of the complaint to the school for a response. This can be accomplished by filing the ACCSC Complaint Form. The complainant(s) will be kept informed as to the status of the complaint, as well as the final resolution by the Commission.
