Serving Out of State Students
In compliance with the language passed in the Higher Education Opportunities Act of 2008, the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) conducted a Negotiated Rule Making Process in 2010, institutions offering distance education must provide enrolled and prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with its accrediting agency and with the appropriate state agency for handling complaints in the student's state. Below is information on Shoreline Community College's accrediting agency, followed by a state-by-state list the agencies in each state responsible for complaints regarding out-of-state distance education programs.
Contacting Shoreline Community College's eLearning Department is a recommended first step toward resolving instructional and student service related issues.
