• Section 209(5) and Section 245(6) of the State School Aid Act of 1979

    In 2014, legislation was inserted into The State School Aid Act pertaining to "opportunities for earning college credit" at a community college or university by outlining how students can earn credit and the unique institutional resources which must be made available to those attending students.

    By the first business day in November of each year, IHEs are required by state law to:

    • Post the spreadsheet on each institution's website under the college Budget and Performance Transparency Badge link.

    Section 245(7) of the State School Aid Act of 1979 says a public university shall collect and report the number and percentage of all enrolled students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, broken out by undergraduate and graduate/professional classifications, to the center and post the information on its website under the budget transparency icon badge.

  • Section 222 of the State School Aid Act of 1979

    Community Colleges are required by state law to submit their financial statements to CEPI on or before December 15 of each year.

    • Email the completed financial statement to cepi@michigan.gov (no paper copies)
      • Email Subject Line: Financial Statement for "School Name"
    • Colleges must also publish the financial statement on their website.

    CEPI will provide this information to members of the senate and house appropriations subcommittees on community colleges, the senate and house fiscal agencies, the auditor general, the workforce development agency, and the state budget director.
