HEOA Disclosures

A disclosure requirement is information that a postsecondary education institution is required to distribute or make available to another party, such as students or employees. A reporting requirement is information submitted to the U.S. Department of Education or other agencies. The following items below summarize the disclosure and reporting requirements that fall under the responsibility of the Office of Institutional Research.

This web site was organized using a reference list created by the National Postsecondary Education Cooperative (NPEC) combined with internal documentation outlining the HEOA regulations and consumer information from Title I, Section 111, of the HEOA.

Student-Right-to-Know

The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-542) amended the Higher Education Act by imposing student consumer information requirements on all institutions and additional requirements on institutions that award athletically-related aid. Specifically, the student consumer requirements are listed as: completion or graduation rates of all students and students receiving athletically-related aid and campus crime (described in Title II of the Act).
