The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA) amends the Higher Education Act
of 1965 (HEA) to revise and reauthorize HEA programs. It was signed into law on August
14, 2008. The Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2009.
While many of the provisions took effect immediately, others were subjected to a negotiated
rule making process. The final regulations became effective July 1, 2010.
The law includes many disclosure and reporting requirements that a postsecondary educational
institution is required to distribute or make available to other parties, such as
current or prospective students or families of current or prospective students. To
document Ferrum College's compliance with the HEA/HEOA requirements, the Office of
Institutional Research and Effectiveness coordinated the collection of this information
that includes a brief summary of each disclosure requirement, the methods of dissemination,
and appropriate links to information pertaining to each requirement. Additional information
may be found at the HEOA website.
Please use the links below to be directed to each of the institutional disclosure
requirements by subject area.*
