Student Complaint Procedures for Proprietary and Private Postsecondary Schools
The state of Idaho requires proprietary schools and private postsecondary institutions to register with the Idaho State Board of Education. Students of these schools and institutions may escalate complaints to the State Board of Education if they are unable to achieve resolution through the school’s or institution’s grievance process. The complaint form below may be used by a student of a proprietary school or private postsecondary educational institution located in Idaho. Prior to filing a complaint with the Idaho State Board of Education, the student must have first exhausted the school or institution’s internal complaint resolution process.
