Students who attend a college that is part of the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) can file complaints at the state level in three categories defined by ED:
- Complaints that allege violations of Wisconsin consumer protection laws, including but not limited to false advertising
- Complaints that allege violations of Wisconsin laws related to the licensure of postsecondary institutions.
- Complaints relating to the quality of education or other State or accreditation requirements.
A student who reasonably believes that a violation has occurred in one or more of these categories may file a written complaint. Complaints must be signed by the student and submitted on the official student complaint form. Complaints must be filed within one year from the date of the alleged violation or the last recorded date of attendance, whichever is later. The WTCS will review complaints only after students attempt to resolve the matter through applicable college appeals or complaint processes.
The student complaint form can be found at the following link: http://www.wtcsystem.edu/student_complaints.htm.
