HEOA sec. 488 and HEA sec. 485a Consumer Information*
*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 an institution of higher education 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 governmental 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.
St. Mary’s University, presents this information in good faith and in compliance of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) sect. 488 and Higher Education Act (HEA) sect. 485a. Information is posted for consumer use. Student Right-to-Know rates are based on students completing a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, to protect the confidentiality of students, counts in the “Race/Ethnicity” category were suppressed if 5 or less.
Common Data Set
The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Thomson Peterson’s and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.
The CDS is a set of standards and definitions of data items rather than a survey instrument or set of data represented in a database. Each of the higher education surveys conducted by the participating publishers incorporates items from the CDS as well as unique items proprietary to each publisher. Consequently, the publisher’s surveys differ in that they utilize varying numbers of items from the CDS.
