At Northwestern College, we want you to be able to make an informed choice about your education. Various government entities mandate that colleges provide various types of “consumer information” to students, prospective students, and the public. We have assembled this information here in one easy-to-find location to make it easy for you. As always, please stop in or call the college if you have any questions about the information provided.
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 U.S. Department of Education.
Northwestern College is committed to the principle of promoting access to information that will allow consumers such as students, parents, counselors, and legislators to make informed decisions about postsecondary education. The NC Student Hub and NC website provide a single access point to all federally mandated reports and disclosures.
