“Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act” requires for institutions to provide information freely to the public especially for current and prospective students regarding (1) “completion or graduation rates of certificate- or degree-seeking, full-time students entering that institution,” (2) “graduation/completion rates of all students as well as students receiving athletically-related student aid by race/ethnicity and gender and by sport, and the average completion or graduation rate for the four most recent years,” and (3) institution’s crime statistics.
This information is provided to all students, faculty, and staff of The University of West Alabama in compliance with the Campus Security Act of 1990 and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The information is provided for the purpose of assisting campus community members in reducing their risk of becoming a victim of crime while at UWA. Any questions regarding these statistics should be directed to the Campus Police at (205) 652-3602.
Athletic Graduation Rate Report
The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-542) amended the Higher Education Act by imposing student consumer information requirements on all institutions and additional requirements on institutions that award athletically-related aid.
The student consumer requirements are separated into three categories: completion or graduation rates (in Title I of the Act); athletically-related aid (also in Title I of the Act), and campus crime (described in Title II of the Act).
