FSA - Federal Student Aid

The United States Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008  requires universities participating in student aid programs to provide all potential and enrolled students the essential information regarding academic programs, services, and financial aid procedures in order to properly inform consumers.

This Act protects a consumer’s right to learn important data regarding student services, academic progress policies, campus safety, attendance cost, and other data of each institution to make informed decisions when choosing a university.

In compliance with this requirement and for easy access, UDLAP has centralized this information on this page so prospective and enrolled students and their families can make the best decision.

Missing Students

Complying with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, UDLAP has a Policy of Missing Students from Residential Colleges. This policy states that any person who suspects that a “resident student” is missing can alert the “university” authorities.

Likewise, the “university” student or employee who knows that a “resident student” could be missing has the obligation to fill out the “missing student report”.

As part of this “policy”, every “resident student” must designate an “emergency contact”, which will be recorded at the Department of Residential Colleges and which can be modified by request at any time, according to the Procedure for the Attention of Reports of Missing Resident Students from Residential Colleges.

For underage “resident students”, the “emergency contacts” will be their father and/or mother or guardian, based on the information recorded in the Department of Residential Colleges.

Likewise, it is responsibility of the “resident student” to keep the “emergency contact” data updated; this information is protected according to what is stated in the “university’s” Policy for the Protection of Personal Data and its corresponding Privacy Notice.

The “university” authorities that can receive a “missing student report” are:

Security Department

Phone Number: 3208681

Head of Security

The person who receives the “missing student report” will gather information in the RED form and will sign it, as will the person who is reporting the incident. Once the Department of Security receives the “missing student report” they will have 24 hours to investigate and find the “missing student”.
If the “missing student” cannot be found three hours after receiving the “missing student report”, the Department of Security will make a “missing student determination”.

If after the first 24 hours of receipt of the “missing student report”, the student is still not found.

  • The Legal Department must direct the “missing student report” to the pertinent authorities following the applicable legislation.
  • The Department of Residential Colleges must reach the “emergency contact” to inform about the disappearance of the “resident student”.

Once the “authorities” know about the “missing student report”, the “university” will assist them in strict accordance to the applicable legislation, and all communication with the authorities will be exclusively through the Legal Department.
