The HECA Compliance Matrix lists 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. Users can also filter by topic, to limit the matrix to certain topics of interest (i.e. athletics or human resources).
The information provided in the HECA Compliance Matrix was compiled from publicly-available government agency websites and relevant secondary sources, including resources from the following National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) member institutions: Catholic University of America, University of Florida, Georgia College and State University, Kent State University, North Carolina State University, State University of New York (SUNY), University of Vermont, and Washington & Lee University.
The information contained on this website is for general guidance only and is not intended, nor can it be relied upon, as legal advice. The site is intended to be an informational clearinghouse for laws, rules, and regulations that may impact colleges and universities. While we make every effort to provide updated information, there may be delays or omissions on this site, given the volume and rapid change of laws, rules and regulations. Please consult your campus counsel with specific questions.
