Complaint Resolution

The University of Cincinnati is committed to providing high quality educational opportunities. If a conflict arises, the University wishes to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and collegial manner. Students attempting to resolve any issues or complaints with the university should follow the university’s policies and grievance procedures contained on the Right To Know website.  Students are encouraged to seek assistance from the University Ombuds Office for possible resolution before initiating the formal grievance process. 

If an issue cannot be resolved by the university’s internal processes, Ohio residents may choose to contact the Ohio Department of Higher Education. Out of state students may choose to file a complaint with the appropriate authority in their state of residence. The Student Complaint Information by State and Agency below provides additional information regarding the complaint process and contacts for each state.  

The university is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
