Institutional Resources

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008 requires that universities make available to current and prospective students important information concerning each institution’s academic programs, retention rates, graduation rates, crime reports, financial aid procedures and more in an effort to ensure fairness and transparency for all higher education consumers. Jackson State has developed this webpage for current and prospective students to access the necessary information according to HEOA. Jackson State hopes that this effort between the University and the Department of Education to provide data to prospective students will help them make the best college decision for them and their future.
