About HEOA

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) was signed by President Obama in August 2009 became effective in July 2010. CUNY has multiple systems in place for complying with this legislation.

Hunter College, the Graduate Center and the Graduate School of Journalism, the Law School and Brooklyn College have their own solutions.  The system developed by Brooklyn College has been modified by CIS and will be used by the majority of colleges.  Colleges on CUNY First – Queens College and Queensborough Community College, will be using CUNY First for complying with HEOA, and as colleges come up on CUNY First they will switch to CUNY First as well.

Please see a memo regarding HEOA from Executive Vice Chancellor and University Provost Alexandra W. Logue and General Counsel and Senior Vice Chancellor for Legal Affairs Frederick P. Schaffer.
