Higher Education Opportunity Information

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 contains numerous federal reporting and disclosure requirements for information from various administrative areas of higher education institutions. This website has been created to provide quick access to this information.

To the left are general consumer information subject areas, which provide links to references, reports, and additional details. For related information, please refer to Public Reports, which includes the college’s designated contacts for public institutional data and for the annual campus security report.

Comprehensive information is also available in the College Portrait, a Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA). In September 2007, Purchase College became one of the first institutions in the country to join the Voluntary System of Accountability, whose College Portrait provides standardized information to parents, prospective students, and the public about the undergraduate student experience at Purchase College.
