Resolution Process

The first step in resolving an issue is to attempt informal resolution by contacting the individual closest to the issue.  Counselors are available to assist with an attempt at a resolution. If a satisfactory resolution is not achieved through this informal process, the student may submit a formal written complaint to the Director for investigation and response. If the issue is not satisfactorily resolved after taking the steps listed above, the student may contact the Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner at commissioner.labor@alaska.gov
