Reporting Guidelines and Considerations

  • Financial Aid data is governed not only by FERPA but also by the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), the Privacy Act and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Use good data sense when filtering data – be conscientious of small cell sizes!
  • The dashboard may not tell the whole story (e.g., changes in program eligibility and award amounts) – reach out with questions
