Higher Education Opportunity Act Compliance
The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, includes many disclosures and reporting requirements. A disclosure requirement is information that a post-secondary 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.
Disclosures and reporting requirements sometimes overlap. For certain topics, institutions are required to make information available to students or others and to submit information to the Department of Education.
