Higher Education Opportunity Act. This act (PL 110-315) was enacted on August 14, 2008, reauthorizing the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965.
The HEOA covers a wide variety of issues related to higher education. New in 2008 were several provisions related to students with intellectual disability. These included defining Comprehensive Transition Programs, and funding model demonstration projects and a National Coordinating Center for those projects.
