Before you submit a complaint through the Washington State Student Complaint Portal, please consider the following:
Before you file a complaint through the Student Complaint Portal, we encourage you to try to work out your situation directly with your school. However, we understand this is sometimes impossible due to the nature of a complaint.
Complaints regarding a violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) cannot be processed through the portal. FERPA complaints should be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education. You may request a complaint form by calling 202-260-3887.
Please submit your complaint directly to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Be advised that copies of complaints will be made available to the school involved and may be made available to other
federal, state, or private agencies, and—upon request—to members of the public.
