NC State Authorization & Out-of-State Grievance Process

State Authorization

U.S. Department of Education regulation 600.9(c) requires that if an institution is offering distance education in a state where it is not physically located, the institution must meet individual state requirements for offering distance education to students within that state.

MyComputerCareer (MyCC) has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). As a result, MyCC is authorized to offer distance education to students in states and territories that participate in NC-SARA, which includes all states except California and also includes Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Complaint Process

U.S. Department of Education regulations require MyCC to provide students with contact information for filing complaints at various levels. 

MyCC administration attempts, in good faith, to resolve grievances as they arise. However, if a matter remains unresolved, the purpose of this procedure is to provide a process for resolving student complaints. This procedure applies to all student complaints, including but not limited to academic issues, student services or administrative concerns, or matters involving any form of discrimination or harassment. You can also use this procedure to submit ideas on how to make MyCC better or even submit positive feedback.

All student complaints should be communicated to the Director of Education or Program Chair. Students who have addressed their concern to the Director of Education or Program Chair and have not reached their desired outcome, or have an issue directly related to the Director of Education or Program Chair are encouraged to write a letter to Tony, founder and CEO of MyComputerCareer, by going to https://www.mycomputercareer.edu/dear-tony. The student will be contacted, and an attempt will be made to resolve the complaint internally to the satisfaction of the student, within reasonable discretion. Students are encouraged to go through this internal complaint process as a first attempt to resolve any complaints.
