LSU Online is committed to providing students around the world a safe and effective learning environment with all the rigor of face-to-face programs. In pursuit of this goal, students have the right to file complaints or grievances if their student experience falls short of expectations.
I Need Help Getting Started
Students who need guidance or are unsure how to resolve an issue can reach out to their Enrollment Coach or Studdent Support Coach as a first step. Many issues can be resolved informally with direct communication between the affected parties, and your Enrollment or Student Success Coach is always there to help.
Academic and financial appeals do not fall under the scope of LSU Online and must be handled by the relevant departments.Your Enrollment or Student Success Coach can assist you with navigating this process.
If you do not know who your Enrollment or Student Success Coach is, or need confidential assistance, please contact email@example.com.
I Need to File a Formal Complaint
If your problem wasn’t resolved by talking directly to the faculty or staff member(s) involved, you may file a formal complaint or grievance through LSU Cares. You have up to two years from the date of the incident to file this complaint.
My Complaint Wasn’t Resolved by LSU
