Home State Compliant Resolution

Freed-Hardeman University strives to provide educational opportunities, experiences, and services that are of the highest quality. Occasionally, there may be those who have complaints that they wish to share with the University. The University views such complaints as potential opportunities for improvements.

All complaints should first be routed through the appropriate complaint, appeal, or grievance process as outlined in the University‚Äôs Undergraduate CatalogGraduate Catalog, and Student Handbook. Depending on the nature of complaint, the matter should be brought to the attention of the office directly responsible for that area of the University for informal resolution. Formal complaints, appeals, and grievances should be well-documented and move through the appropriate campus process prior to appealing to any off-campus authority. 

Complaints related to the application of other state laws or rules related to approval to operate shall be referred to the appropriate State Board within your home state of residence and shall be reviewed and handled by that licensing agency.  Locate your home state in the list below and click on the agency's name to view the complaint process.
