Contact Information for Filing Complaints
Angelo State University maintains a reasonable and well publicized set of policies and procedures for addressing complaints. These policies and procedures are consistently followed and fairly administered when resolving student complaints. Complaints to Angelo State’s regional accreditor and State authority may be handled as outlined below:
SACSCOC Complaint Procedures Against the Commission or its Accredited Institutions
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Procedures
Current, former, and prospective students may email (to StudentComplaints@highered.texas.gov) or mail a completed THECB student complaint form (available on the agency’s website) to THECB’s Office of General Counsel. A non-exhaustive list of exceptions to the types of complaints handled by THECB is provided in the rules. THECB will refer complaints alleging that an institution has violated state consumer protection laws to the Consumer Protection Division of the Office of the Attorney General of Texas for investigation and resolution, and will refer complaints pertaining to a component institution in a university system to the appropriate university system for investigation and resolution. Further, if THECB determines that a complaint is appropriate for investigation and resolution by the institution’s accrediting agency or an educational association such as ICUT, the Agency may refer the complaint to the accrediting agency or educational association. However, THECB has the right to modify or reject any decision made by the accrediting agency or educational association, and may terminate the referral of the complaint to those entities if THECB determines that they are not appropriately addressing the complaint.
