College Transparency Act

This bill requires 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 postcollegiate outcomes, and higher education costs and financial aid;
  • provide complete and customizable information for students and families making decisions about postsecondary education;
  • reduce the requirements for reporting by institutions of higher education; and
  • periodically match with other federal systems of data.

The bill also establishes a postsecondary student data system advisory committee.
