Student Consumer Complaints
Weber State University is a member of
National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA)
Students who have a complaint concerning a Weber State University online, distance or correspondence program should first file a Petition Form with the WSU Division of Online & Continuing Education.
If the WSU Division of Online & Continuing Education does not resolve the issue, students can file a complaint with the Utah Board of Regents. The Board of Regents will only consider complaints that were previously unresolved by the institution and may refer a complaint to another agency for investigation.
Additionally, if the WSU Division of Online & Continuing Education does not resolve the problem, students can file a complaint with their state’s enforcement authority. Links to complaint forms listed by state can be found here.
Note: students in California should direct their complaints to the California Department of Consumer Affairs.
If the issue remains unresolved, students who have complaints relating to fraud, false advertising, or other deceptive practices can file a complaint with the Utah Division of Consumer Protection.
