Student Consumer Information
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires colleges and universities that participate in federal student financial aid programs to disclose certain information to current and prospective students, and to university employees.
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. To view a summary of HEA institutional disclosure requirements, click here.
In order to promote access to information that will allow consumers to make informed decisions about postsecondary education, the University of South Carolina Beaufort developed this webpage to provide these disclosures in one location. Click on the links below for information on each topic. For additional questions, please contact the appropriate office.
