Program-Specific Student Success
Student Complaint Resolution
Texas Lutheran University desires to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and amicable manner. Students who desire to resolve a grievance should follow the university’s grievance procedure as found in the TLU Student Handbook.
However, if an issue cannot be resolved internally, prospective and current students may file a complaint with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and/or with TLU’s accrediting agency, The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
Student Complaint Resolution by the State of Texas
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is the appropriate state agency in which prospective or current students may find policy information or file a complaint.
Student Complaint Resolution by the Accreditation Agency
Texas Lutheran University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate and master's degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097, call 404-679-4500 for questions, or visit sacscoc.org about the accreditation of Texas Lutheran University.
Most problems between students and faculty/staff can and should be resolved between the parties involved. Hence, a student should initially go directly to the faculty or staff member involved. If the concern/conflict cannot be resolved at this level, the student should see the department chair or, in the case of a conflict in a university sport, the athletic director or, in the case of a conflict with a staff member, the staff member’s supervisor. If circumstances preclude discussing the concern/conflict with the department chair, athletic director, or supervisor, a student may address their complaint with the dean of students office.
