In August, 2008, Congress enacted and the President signed into law the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), reauthorizing the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. Among its many provisions, the HEOA requires every institution participating in federal financial aid programs to adopt a code of conduct and display it prominently on its website.

In addition to the requirements of the HEOA, as members of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), Rogers State University financial aid personnel also adhere to the NASFAA Statement of Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct which contains principles specific to the financial aid profession.

Consistent with the requirements of the HEOA and the NASFAA Statement, Rogers State University has adopted this Code of Conduct (pdf) for financial aid professionals.
