Student complaints

The University of Nevada, Reno strives to provide the highest quality educational opportunities available. If a student living in a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) state is not satisfied with their online educational experience, a complaint/concern may be submitted for review. At the University of Nevada, Reno the review process may take up to 10 business days.

Examples include:

  • An allegation that the postsecondary institution violated deceptive trade practices, consumer protections, or other provisions under Title 4, Chapter 14, Section 24-26 of the Board of Regents Handbook
  • An allegation that a postsecondary institution does not meet the standards established by the institution’s accrediting agency or state authorization requirements under the regional SARA compact or NC-SARA.

Grade and student advising appeals are not allowed under SARA. These appeals should be directed to the University Concierge Service.
