Clery Compliance

The Clery Act, which took effect in 1991, requires all institutions of higher education that participate in the federal student financial aid program to disclose information about crime on their campuses and in the surrounding communities. The Clery Act affects virtually all public and private universities in the United States and is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education. Campuses that fail to comply with the act face penalties ranging from fines to suspension of federal financial aid.
