Revised October 17, 2011
The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA) which signed into law on August 14, 2008, mandates colleges to provide disclosure and reporting requirements in a variety of formats. A disclosure requirement is information that we distribute or make available to another party, such as students or employees. A reporting requirement is information we submit to the U.S. Department of Education or other agencies. Sometimes disclosure and reporting requirements overlap. Some topics require the college to make information available to students as well as submit information to the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, this web page documents that Los Angeles Mission College attempts to meet these disclosure and reporting requirements.
