Military Personnel Complaint Process

When a school fails to follow the “Principles of Excellence” established by executive order of the President on April 27, 2012, students who are veterans may submit a complaint through this website: http://www.benefits.va.gov/GIBILL/Feedback.asp.

Students who are current military personnel may submit a complaint with the Postsecondary Education Complaint System (http://www.militaryonesource.mil/voluntary-education?content_id=274604). Complaints to external authorities typically assume that a student has exhausted all internal avenues to resolve a complaint. Veterans and military personnel with questions about their bills or financial aid my contact the Student Accounts or Financial Planning Office at Gardner-Webb.
