Disaggregation of Graduation Data

(HEA Title IV, Section 485(a)(7))


Quick Take: Graduation data under the "Student Right to Know" provisions of the law would have to be disaggregated by gender, major racial and ethnic subgroup, recipients of Pell Grants, recipients of a subsidized federal loan who did not receive a Pell Grant, and by recipients of neither a Pell Grant nor a subsidized loan.
When Will This
Take Effect?
For most institutions, this provision went into effect when the bill was signed into law on August 14, 2008.  However, the provisions will not apply to two-year degree-granting institutions until the 2011-12 academic year.
The provisions are included in Title IV, so they are subject to negotiated rulemaking.  The National Center for Education Statistics is also likely have a role in determining how this provision is implemented.
