Consumer Information

Consumer Information Disclosures

The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), includes many disclosure 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.

Final regulations implementing the legislative provisions for consumer information are available from the Federal Registers website. Below is a list of disclosures provided by Houston Community College System. For additional information, including requesting a paper copy of any materials, please call or email the appropriate office included in the links below.
