The US Department of Education requires that institutions offering distance education provide their students with information on where students can file a complaint against the institution with the relevant state agency in their state of residence.

The following link to a PDF file, which is from the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO), not affiliated with Butte College, provides contact information for initiating complaints against the institution from the state in which students reside.
