If you believe that your complaint warrants further attention after you have exhausted all the steps and appeals outlined by the dean of students, academic dean, or the Office of the General Counsel, you may present your complaint to the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) at wascsenior.org/comments if your complaint is associated with the institution’s compliance with academic program quality and accrediting standards. WSCUC is the agency that accredits Los Angeles Pacific University’s academic programs.
If you believe that your complaint continues to warrant further consideration after exhausting the review of either WSCUC or administrators at LAPU, you may contact the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education for review of a complaint. The bureau may be contacted at 2535 Capitol Oaks Drive, Suite 400, Sacramento, CA 95833, bppe.ca.gov, (916) 431-6959 (phone), and (916) 263-1897 (fax).
