State Authorization

As an institution that offers distance education opportunities, High Point University is required to provide both prospective and enrolled students with contact information for filing complaints with the institution, with our regional accrediting agency, and with the appropriate state agencies. This information is presented below.

High Point University Student Grievance Procedures

The basis for a student’s complaint may be that an act or situation is objectionable in the view of the student. High Point University provides a process for student complaints to be addressed.

The High Point University Procedure for Student Complaints governs complaints the student puts in writing and submits to a University official. This Procedure applies to all students, undergraduate and graduate. This Procedure ensures timely, fair and efficient resolutions with the maintenance of individual privacy and confidentiality. This Procedure cannot be used to challenge the finding of the Executive committee of the Faculty, a standing committee whose decision is final.

Informal Resolution of Complaint

Discussion, in many instances, can resolve a complaint. The student is encouraged to bring a problem to the person who has responsibility for the objectionable action or situation. This is merely an option for the student and it has no bearing on the student seeking a formal solution to the problem through the involvement of University officials.

Formal Resolution of a Complaint

When students seek the formal intervention of University officials, they must submit a written complaint to the Mr. Scott Wojciechowski, Assistant Vice President for Student Life, High Point University, 3rd Floor, Slane University Center, High Point, North Carolina, 27268, 336-841-9231, swojciec@highpoint.edu. Because a student complaint can touch any aspect of the University, the Dean of Students is the appointed University official to guide all written student complaints.
