Judgment of Compliance
The College certifies compliance.
Cleveland Community College is compliant with all annual audit and review requirements and program responsibilities under Title IV Programs as stated in the Eligibility and Certification Approval Report and the Program Participation Agreement. The approval to administer Title IV aid is effective through June 30, 2019. The College administers the following Federal Title IV aid programs: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), and Federal Work Study (FWS). Cleveland Community College currently does not participate in the Federal Family Educational Loan Program.
The Title IV programs are subject to annual, compliance audits conducted by the North Carolina Office of the State Auditor as part of the Statewide Single Audit (2014-15, 2013-14, and 2012-13). Additionally, the Fiscal Operations Report and Application to Participate (FISAP 2016-17, 2015-16, and 2014-15) is completed and electronically submitted to the Department of Education in accordance with federal requirements. The FISAP serves as documentation for federal financial aid programs expenditures.
The College also participates in Enhancing Accountability in Government through Leadership and Education (EAGLE), which is a statewide internal control program, created by the Office of the State Controller (OSC). The purpose of EAGLE is to establish adequate internal controls and increases fiscal accountability within state government. EAGLE requires an annual assessment of internal control over financial reporting and compliance. There have been no findings in our compliance with administering federal and state programs.
Through these reports, audits, internal controls, and remaining in good standing with the US Department of Education in terms of complaints, litigations, credit, financial infractions, etc., the College demonstrates compliance with Federal Standard 4.7.
