College Transparency Act

This bill amends the Higher Education Act of 1965 to require the National Center for Education Statistics to establish a secure and privacy-protected data system that contains information about postsecondary students. Specifically, the data system must:

  • evaluate student enrollment patterns, progression, completion, and post-collegiate outcomes, and higher education costs and financial aid at the student level;
  • provide complete and customizable information for students and families making decisions about postsecondary education;
  • reduce the requirements for reporting by colleges and universities; and
  • link with other federal systems of data.
