Submit your compliment and/or general feedback via the Student Feedback - Compliments and Complaints eForm.
What is your complaint about? Is it academic or non-academic? If you are unsure, review the self-help checklist to ensure you are directing your complaint correctly or whether your issue can be resolved in another way.
If you feel dissatisfied about a university related experience or feel that you have been treated unfairly or adversely affected in some way, you are advised to raise the matter directly with the person most concerned or with the appropriate supervisor of that person. It is in everyone's interests that low level or information resolution is considered as the first option of complaint resolution.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome OR you wish to persue a complaint through the official complaint process, you can submit a written complaint. This is undertaken as part of the official student complaints process as indicated within the CQUniversity Student Complaints Policy and Procedures. If you have attempted to have resolved the complaint informally in the first instance, ensure you keep records of any informal complaint resolution to accompany your written complaint.

Your complaint will then follow the timeframes and flowchart for student complaint handling.
Please note that when a complaint is lodged, you will automatically receive an acknowledgement of your complaint that includes a link to the policy.

However, please be mindful that investigation and any further action will depend on the nature and seriousness of the case. Students will receive updates on their complaint as it progresses.
You may be contacted to seek further information about a complaint and/or referred to the appropriate university policy or support services.
