(Title IV program responsibilities)
Findings of the Off-Site Reaffirmation Committee
The institution did not provide satisfactory evidence of its compliance of the requirements Under Title IV of the Higher Education Act, as Amended. Specifically, the Audit Management Letter in the Compliance Report does not reference the audit of the Institution’s financial aid programs. The Institution also did not reference or provide the Program Participant Agreement with the Federal Government.
Response and Actions Taken
The financial aid program is audited every other year by the Louisiana Legislative Auditors. The 2013 audit did not include a focus on financial aid. The most recent audit was completed in December 2014 and did include a focus on the financial aid program. As seen in the Management Letter, no audit issues were identified for the UNO financial aid program.
