Alternative Complaints and Appeals Resources

Kennesaw State University strives to satisfactorily resolve student complaints and appeals. If a complaint cannot be resolved internally, the student may then file a grievance with the regulatory agency in the state where they are receiving instruction and/or the institution’s accrediting agency.

Any student or employee in the University System aggrieved by a final decision of the president of an institution may apply to the Board of Regents for a review of the decision (www.usg.edu/regents/bylaws).

Fraudulent activity related to the University System of Georgia, or suggestions to improve ongoing operations may be reported at: www.usg.edu/audit/compliance/reporting_contacts or by calling 1-877-516-3466.

The USG and Kennesaw State University are committed to the highest ethical and professional standards in pursuit of its mission to create a more educated Georgia: www.usg.edu/audit/compliance/ethics
