Young Student Smiling

Effective July 1, 2011, federal regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010 [75 FR 66665 and FR 66832] by the U.S. Department of Education require postsecondary institutions that participate in the student financial assistance programs authorized in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended to disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s GE Programs.

Generally, GE Programs (at public and private not-for-profit institutions) include Title IV-eligible non-degree programs (e.g., certificate and diploma programs).
