The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), requires institutions to disclose certain information to prospective students, current students, and employees. The purpose of this web page is to provide in an easy-to-access manner the information required to be disclosed by the HEA.

The U.S. Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. In 2005, Sen. Robert Byrd, West Virginia inserted into an appropriations bill a requirement that all educational institutions receiving federal funds offer an instructional program every Constitution Day, September 17. The rules state the requirement of the law, note that Constitution Day programs can be held the week prior or after September 17 if that day falls on a weekend or holiday. We have been participating in Constitution Day activities since 2005. A comprehensive listing of Constitution Day activities since 2011 can be found by clicking the links below.

Net Price Calculator Information
In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), beginning October 29, 2011 post-secondary institutions that participate in Title IV federal student aid programs are required to post a net price calculator on its website that uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students and their families.
The Net Price Calculator will be calculated by taking an estimated annual cost of attendance and subtracting the Median (not average) amount of need-based federal, state and institutional aid received by our students in the most recently completed academic year.
It is important to understand the following:
- Actual aid offers may be substantially different from this calculator’s estimates
- If the Estimated total grant aid comes back displaying $0 it may be due to insufficient data history. This is particularly applicable to out of state students. Students may still receive some aid.
- External scholarships, student loans and student employment opportunities are also available to assist with funding the net price, but are not reflected by this calculation
- Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be eligible for, and receive, an actual financial aid award that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov
