“Student Right to Know”

One of the important principles of higher education is promoting access to information that will allow consumers to make informed decisions about post secondary education. Our “consumers” include students, parents, high school counselors, legislators, researchers, and business people.

The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, includes many disclosure and reporting requirements for colleges such as BCC:

General Institutional Information

Student Financial Assistance

Health and Safety


Voter Registration


The U.S. Department of Education published on October 29, 2010 final regulations in the Federal Register that require institutions to report certain information about students who enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). Those regulations also provide that institutions must disclose to prospective students certain information about the institution’s GE Programs. All Undergraduate Credit Certificate Programs that Bergen Community College offers are considered GE Programs.
