Higher Education Act Section 117 Foreign Source Reporting

Section 117 of the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965 requires higher education institutions that receive Title IV federal student aid to submit to the Secretary of Education reports about Gifts received from any Foreign Source, Contracts with a Foreign Source, and any ownership interest in, or control over the institution by a Foreign Source.

On January 10, 2020, RPAC issued interim guidance to the University community about the HEA 117 reporting requirement. A final version of this guidance is being finalized so that it may be posted to the Research and Technology Transfer Guidance Memo application.
