Election Voter Registration Information
As a citizen of the United States, you have the privilege to vote on your county, state and national leaders. As part of the Higher Education Act of 1998, Congress directed schools receiving Federal financial aid to assist students who have not yet registered to vote. In essence, if a Title IV (Federal Student Aid) participating school is located in a state that requires voter registration prior to election day and/or does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then the school must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to its federal student aid eligible students.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) now addresses copyright protection. Title IV now stipulates that all US colleges and universities must provide: An annual disclosure to students describing copyright law and campus policies related to violating copyright law. A plan to “effectively combat the unauthorized distribution of copyrighted materials” by users of its network, including “the use of one or more technology-based deterrents”. A plan to “offer alternatives to illegal downloading”.
HEOA Compliance Statement
AMU has implemented the following plan for compliance with the file sharing and copyright protection provisions of HEOA: The college sends annual emails to all students network users to educate our users about copyright law and illegal use and distribution of copyrighted works. These messages include references to this web page, which specifies campus policies dealing with illegal activity, and outlines the penalties for copyright infringement that are codified in US law. This page provides links above to lists maintained by EDUCAUSE, the RIAA, and the MPAA of legal video and music sources. The college's Academic Vice-President will undertake an bi-annual audit to assure the effectiveness of our technical deterrents and our compliance with the requirements of HEOA that pertain to Copyright and File Sharing.
National Student Loan Database System Disclosure
Please note that any loan borrowed by the student or parent will be submitted to the National Student Loan Database System (NSLDS), and will be accessible by guaranty agencies, lenders, and schools determined to be authorized users of the data system.
This day commemorates the September 17, 1787 signing of the United States Constitution. Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year is required to hold an educational program about the U.S. Constitution for its students. The U.S. Department of Education does not mandate or prescribe particular curricula or lesson plans. AMU posts copies of the US Constitution on a bulletin board on the third week of September every year.
Campus Safety and Crime Reporting
AMU makes every effort to provide safe campus environments for its students. Onsite security staff are present during operating hours to stop abusive behavior and solve problems. This combination of staffing and organizational and physical infrastructure is designed to help young adults learn to take responsibility for their own safety in a context of accurate knowledge of risks and resources.
