At MTI College, we believe that student satisfaction is closely tied to student success. Because of this, we will go to great lengths to resolve any issues or complaints that are brought to our attention. We encourage students to voice their concerns and we recommend a three-step process for students to achieve a successful resolution to their complaint:
Step 1 – Speak to the staff or faculty member who you feel has the ability to immediately resolve your concern. Share your concerns and reasons for why you feel a correction of some order is necessary. If this effort is not successful or appropriate, please go to Step 2;
Step 2 – Contact the campus director (916-339-4371) or director of education (916-339-4354) and ask for their assistance in resolving your concern. If this effort does not produce a satisfactory resolution to your concern, please contact MTI’s president (916-339-4360) and/or go to Step 3;
Step 3 – Complete a Grievance Hearing Request. This easy-to-complete form is available from the deans’ offices or may be downloaded below. Please return the completed form to the campus director, president or any dean. Once your request is received, you will be contacted within 48 hours to schedule a hearing.
The grievance hearing allows the student to present his or her case before a panel consisting of a student, an instructor, and an administrator, all of whom will seek to be impartial when reviewing the facts and reaching a decision. Emphasis will be placed on the interpretation and application of school and academic policy. The student will be notified of the outcome of his or her grievance within one week of the hearing. All parties understand that the decision of the grievance hearing is final.
In the unlikely event that MTI is unable to resolve your complaint, the following California agencies, accrediting and approval bodies have processes available for receiving and responding to student complaints.
