Feds Establish Complaint System for Student Vets

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The federal government is launching a new online complaint system for veterans who believe that they were misled by colleges or denied services necessary for their education.

The central repository stems from complaints by some students who found that credits earned would not transfer to other universities, despite school recruiter statements that they would, or that assurances of a high-demand job after graduation were untrue.

President Barack Obama issued an executive order calling for the creation of the complaint system in April 2012.

When a complaint is received, federal agencies will first contact the school on the student's behalf to work toward a resolution. Complaints will also be forwarded to a network maintained by the Federal Trade Commission that is accessible to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
