FAQ & Support
SUNY New Paltz is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and follows the complaint resolution policies and procedures outlined within the SARA Policy Manual and summarized here. Consumer protection complaints resulting from distance education courses, activities, and operations may be submitted to SUNY New Paltz for investigation and resolution by contacting the Associate Provost for Academic Planning & Learning Innovation/Dean of Continuing & Online Education at email@example.com. If a student is dissatisfied with the campus-based resolution, a concern may be submitted to System Administration of the State University of New York as outline here. And, if still not satisfied, a complaint may be submitted, within two years of the incident about which the complaint is made, to the New York State Education Department as outlined here. Please note, this does not include complaints related to grades or student conduct violations, both of which are to be fully addressed via campus processes, not through the NC-SARA complaint resolution procedures.
