Compliance Matrix

The Higher Education Compliance Alliance (HECA) Compliance Matrix provides a comprehensive list of key federal laws and regulations governing colleges and universities. It includes a brief summary of each law, applicable reporting deadlines, and links to additional resources.

Please also refer to the working document, the Arcadia University Compliance Calendar (AU Calendar), which outlines some critical deadlines for University partners, along with the key compliance expectations bearing on various academic and administrative units. The Office of General Counsel encourages you to review the items flagged for your academic or administrative unit on the HECA Compliance Matrix to ensure that you are aware of all federal law and policy issues that affect your department, as well as reviewing the AU Calendar for some primary compliance-related dates you should be familiar with.
