Complaints to the Missouri Department of Higher Education

As an institution of higher education in the State of Missouri that participates in the federal higher education student aid programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, students who have complaints about Forest Institute’s administration of financial aid should follow our financial aid appeal process outlined on pages 69-70 of the Forest Catalog. Should informal and formal appeals processes fail to produce a satisfactory resolution at the institutional level, formal complaints may be filed with the Missouri Department of Higher Education. See contact information below.
