Higher Education Opportunity Act Information

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (Public Law 110-315) (HEOA) was enacted on August 14, 2008 and reauthorizes the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). At the direction of the U.S. Department of Education, Ringling College of Art and Design is required to disclose certain information to consumers, such as students, employees and parents.  The Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness has created this website to provide convenient access to this information.


Our 48-acre campus located in the heart of Sarasota has everything an emerging artist or designer could need, including coffee shops, fitness and health centers, galleries and exhibition spaces, fully equipped, professional studios and labs, a top-ranked library collection, large scale, customizable project rooms, digital checkouts, and more. And you don’t have to walk miles to get from one end to the other – our campus is intimate enough to cross in minutes, so you’re never far from where you need to be. 

That’s why 70% of our students choose to live on campus! Experience Ringling College for yourself and get immersed in a campus experience designed specifically for creatives.
