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.

In order to promote access to information that will allow consumers to make informed decisions about postsecondary education, Washington and Lee University provides these disclosures in one location via hyperlinks to each topic. If there are questions about the information, please contact the appropriate office.

Additionally, students and prospective students may find the information resources of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) of use in planning for college and careers. Click on the SCHEV Notifications link at the bottom of the page to view data published by the Council..
