The Higher Education Opportunity Act (August, 2008) was the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965. The updated act focuses on financial aid for students and additionally requires a variety of new notification, reporting and disclosure procedures on multiple topics, such things as fire safety, on-campus crime disclosures, drug and alcohol abuse as well as a number of consumer information measures.
This web page is designed to help UW institutions as they work to meet the requirements of the new law. The content of this site will change as new information and resources become available.
This resource provides brief descriptions for a collection of HEOA 2008 reauthorization requirements. The table contains the name and contact information for University of Wisconsin System Administration staff persons who can serve as a resource to answer questions pertaining to the HEOA requirements.
