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 Department of Education.
At Prince George's Community College, we want you to be able to make an informed choice about attending the college. The U.S. Department of Education and other government entities mandate that colleges who participate in student financial aid programs provide various types of consumer information to the public. We have assembled this information here to make it easy for our current and future students and their families. The information includes:

- Maryland Higher Education Commission Resolution to operate in the State of Maryland
The purpose of the resolution is to ease the burden of complying with the October 29, 2010 U.S. Department of Education Regulations on Program Integrity Issues (75 FR 66831 – 66975). The new regulations require an educational institution to be “established by name as an educational institution by a State through a charter, statute, constitutional provision, or other action by an appropriate State agency or State entity…” and be “authorized to operate educational programs beyond secondary education, including programs leading t a degree or certificate.”
- Red Flag Regulations and Guidelines
In 2007, several federal agencies including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Federal Trade Commission, passed Red Flag Regulations and Guidelines which require financial institutions or creditors to develop and implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program. The purpose of the initiative is to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft in connection with the opening of certain accounts or existing accounts. This legislation does apply to higher education institutions including student and employee information. Prince Georges Community College has recently completed college-wide Identity Theft exercise. In response to the new law, Prince George's Community College has created an Identity Theft Prevention Committee. The group meets regularly and has distributed a copy of the Red Flags Procedures Module for Covered Accounts Manual to each department. For more information on the college's efforts to keep your information safe from identity theft, please contact Dwight Washington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
