This page provides a list of web sites with information about gaining financial assistance, your educational record, campus security, graduation rates, electronic file sharing, and UW in general. Current federal regulations require that institutions of higher education disclose such information and make it readily available to current and prospective students. A new provision in the Higher Education Amendment of 1998 requires institutions to provide a list of the information to which students are entitled with instructions on how they may obtain it.
