Discrimination Grievance Procedures
Federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, sex, and disability in programs receiving federal financial assistance. Purdue Global encourages students to bring all complaints or grievances regarding such discrimination to its attention.
A discrimination grievance is any complaint regarding discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, sex, including sexual harassment, or disability by Purdue Global or any Purdue Global employee, student, or other third party. A complainant may present a grievance through the following discrimination grievance procedures. Purdue Global will investigate all complaints or grievances fully and promptly.
The complainant should first bring the grievance to the attention of the Discrimination Grievance Coordinator, whose name and contact information appears below, as soon as possible following the occurrence of the alleged discrimination.

The grievance must be in writing and contain the following information:
- Name and address of the complainant
- Description of and date of alleged violation
- Names of persons responsible for the alleged violation (if known)
- Requested relief or corrective action, if applicable
- Any background information the complainant believes to be relevant
Upon the filing of a grievance, Purdue Global will conduct an investigation, to include taking statements from the complainant and witnesses, if applicable.
Within a reasonable time, following receipt of the grievance, Purdue Global will complete its investigation and provide notice to the complainant and all alleged responsible parties of the outcome of the investigation and the basis for its decision.
If Purdue Global determines that discrimination has occurred, it will take all appropriate steps to prevent the recurrence of the discrimination and to correct the effects on the complainant and others, if appropriate.
The complainant may also contact the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights at:
