Higher Education Opportunity Act

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 requires that universities make available to current and prospective students important information concerning each institution’s academic programs, retention rates, graduation rates, crime reports, financial aid procedures and much more in an effort to ensure fairness and transparency for all higher education consumers. The University has developed a webpage to serve as the central portal for obtaining necessary information about our institution. Click here to link to the webpage.
