Read the following information to determine if:

  • your issue is defined as an ‘enquiry or concern' or a 'complaint'
  • your issue can be dealt with by the Student and Student-Related Complaints Policy, or whether there is another policy or process to help you resolve your issue. 

1. Enquiries or concerns

An enquiry or concern is defined as:

  • a matter that requires action but can be addressed informally in the first instance
  • a decision, action, process or service provided by RMIT that you feel would be in the University’s interest to be aware of or to address.

2. Complaints

If you’ve been unable to resolve your concern informally, or if you feel that it’s inappropriate to attempt an informal resolution, you may submit a formal complaint.
