Student Right to Know
The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act (Public Law 101-542), signed into law in November 1990 by the U.S. Department of Education, applies to institutions of higher education participating in federal financial assistance programs. Under this policy, current and prospective students must be informed of completion or graduation rates of students seeking certificates, diplomas or degrees. The act also requires reporting of security policies and crime statistics to students, employees, and the U.S. Department of Education. Horry Georgetown Technical College, in compliance with Student Right to Know, provides current information on these topics at www.hgtc.edu/righttoknow.
