A Summary of Consumer Information Disclosures
The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), includes many disclosures and reporting requirements. 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. Disclosure 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. Such information includes general institutional operation, financial aid, general completion and graduation rates, annual security report, completion and graduation rates for student athletes, and athletic program participation rates and financial support.
Anderson University is committed to the principle of promoting access to information that will allow consumers such as students, parents, counselors, researchers, and legislators to make informed decisions about post-secondary education. This web page provides a single access point to all federally mandated reports and disclosures.
Individuals are responsible to know and follow current requirements and procedures at the departmental and University levels. For additional information, including requesting a paper copy of any materials, please call or e-mail the appropriate office.
