The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 - Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), requires colleges and universities to publicly disclose various aspects of their policies and procedures. The information provided is to aid families in making the best college decision possible for them and their future.
Student’s Right to Know - A disclosure requirement is information that a post-secondary education institution is required to distribute or make available to another party, such as students or employees. A reporting requirement is information submitted to the U.S. Department of Education or other agencies. Disclosure and reporting requirements sometimes overlap. For certain topics, institutions are required to make information available to students or others and to submit information to the Department of Education.
The estimated Cost of Attendance (also known as a student budget) is a guide to help students anticipate the price of attending Embry-Riddle Worldwide for one academic year and is based on full-time enrollment. The estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) expenses include tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, and the student's living costs while attending school. Undergraduate and graduate costs are based off of a full-time, four-term enrollment period. Each student's cost of attendance is made up of both direct and indirect costs and is also used to determine financial aid eligibility. Additional fees may apply to some students as each student’s situation is different.
Students who are currently enrolled and needing to defer student loans will automatically be reported to the National Clearing House at the beginning of the month following the start of their enrollment. Lenders can verify this information through the National Clearing House. If a lender requires a loan deferment form to be filled out, it can be found on respective lender's website or the student may contact their lender directly. Students must complete Sections I-IV and then fax the form to 386-323-5078 attention Registrar Office, or they may email the completed form in PDF format to Worldwide.Transcripts@erau.edu. The lender's fax number and Student ID are required on the top of the Loan Deferment Form. The form will be processed within 24-48 business hours.
