Complaint Procedures

Complaints are defined as any student, faculty, or staff concern regarding the school programs, services, or staff. A student, faculty member or staff member who has a concern about a school-related issue is encouraged to schedule a conference with the School Director to find resolution (if the issue is regarding grade disputes, please see procedures under “Academic Standards of Progress” in the most recent Academic Catalog). If the issue is not resolved to satisfaction through the conference, the student, faculty member, or staff member can file a formal complaint in writing with the School Director who will formally investigate the complaint, take appropriate action, and provide a written response to the individual by the 10th business day after the day the formal written complaint is received. Note: a conference with the School Director is not required before a student files a formal written complaint.

Complaints should be e-mailed to Complaints@NPSIonline.net. Additionally, individuals can call (210) 737-7233 to schedule a conference with the School Director.
