The University of Alabama at Birmingham makes it a priority to resolve student complaints and concerns in a prompt and fair manner.

Our out-of-state students are just as important to us as our on-campus students! If you are a student living outside of Alabama while attending UAB through electronically delivered courses and have a concern or grievance, we want you to tell us. Students may submit an official written complaint through BlazerNET under the "Links/Forms" section or by clicking the following link: BlazerNET Complaint System

We encourage all students to make a reasonable effort to resolve issues before submitting an official complaint. Complaints are reviewed with relevant faculty and/or staff at UAB in order to respond appropriately to your concerns. If you have additional questions, please call One Stop Student Services at 205-934-4300 or e-mail questions to onestop@uab.edu or UAB Online. If for some reason we are not able to resolve your issue, you may file a complaint with your State. The State Agencies are listed below.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Complaints filed against UAB with SACSCOC must adhere to strict criteria. Click here for more information on how to file a complaint with SACSCOC.
