The three-fold purpose for publishing the Commission's address and contact number is to enable interested constituents (1) to learn about the accreditation status of Faulkner University, (2) to file a third-party comment at the time of Faulkner University's decennial review, or (3) to file a complaint against Faulkner University for alleged non-compliance with a standard or requirement. Normal inquiries about Faulkner University, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc., should be addressed directly to Faulkner University and not to the Commission's office.
