The Higher Education Compliance Alliance
was created by the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), in partnership with thirty other higher education associations, to provide the higher education community with a centralized repository of information and resources for compliance with federal laws and regulations.

HECA Announcements

The Higher Education Compliance Alliance is pleased to announce its new Compliance Matrix! The Compliance Matrix provides a comprehensive list of key federal laws and regulations governing colleges and universities. It includes a brief summary of each law, applicable reporting deadlines, and links to additional resources. Users can sort by topic area or by date to plan for upcoming reporting requirements. We hope that you will find this to be a useful tool in managing your institution's compliance program. Click Compliance Matrix on the menu above to get started!
