STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

The Private Postsecondary Education Act of 1977 (Chapter 3, Part 59, Division 10 of the California Education Code) has as its legislative intent the encouragement of privately supported education, the protection of the integrity of degrees and diplomas, and the assurance for students to have equal opportunities for equal accomplishment and ability.

A "postsecondary educational institution" is any private person or entity which offers educational degrees or diplomas or instruction or educational services to persons who have terminated their secondary education or who are beyond the age of compulsory high school attendance.

A vocational or recreational education, instruction limited to the principles of a church or religious denomination, education at any level from preschool through the 12th grade, public institutions, and education sponsored by a bona fide trade, business, professional, or fraternal organization which is solely for the membership are all excluded from being required to obtain an approval or authorization to operate in California.

A "degree" means any academic degree or honorary degree or title of any designation, mark, appellation, series of letters or words, such as, but not limited to, associated, bachelor, master, doctor, or fellow which signifies, purports, or is generally taken to signify satisfactory completion of the requirements of an academic, educational, technological, or professional program of study beyond the secondary school level or is an honorary title conferred for recognition of some meritorious achievement.

Degree-granting institutions must comply with at least one of the following:

  1. Exempted. The degree is limited to evidence of completion of education restricted solely to the principles of a church or religious denomination.
  2. Accredited. The degree is conferred by an institution which is accredited by a national or regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Office of Education or by the Committee of Bar Examiners for the State of California.
  3. Approved. The institution has been approved by the California Superintendent of Public Instruction to award or issue specific degrees.
  4. Authorized. The institution has been authorized to operate by virtue of the Superintendent determining that it has met explicit standards developed and recommended by the Council for Private Postsecondary Educational Institutions and adopted by the Legislature, or a School of Theology has been authorized by virtue of making an annual public disclosure with the Superintendent, and the content has been deemed truthful and accurate.

Nondegree granting education which leads to educational, professional, technological, or vocational objectives must comply with at least one of the following categories:

  1. Licensed hospital. A state-licensed hospital providing education only in connection with the operation of the hospital.
  2. Licensed school. An institution which is accredited, approved, or licensed as a school by a California state agency or board for education in a profession, vocation, or occupation controlled by the agency or board.
  3. Accredited institution. An institution which is nationally or regionally accredited by an accreditation agency recognized by the United States Office of Education.
  4. Approved courses. An institution with courses of instruction specifically approved by the Superintendent of Public Instruction as meeting specified minimum standards.
  5. Career-related education. An ownership must file annually for education which increases one's employability, potential, effectiveness, or expertise in an occupational area.

The California Superintendent of Public Instruction requires institutions to make an annual filing appropriate to its legal status. Such application procedures vary from filing simplified disclosure information to thorough reports which will be validated by staff personnel and/or other representatives of the Superintendent.

The Private Postsecondary Education Division, which administers the provisions of law for the Superintendent, is basically consumer protection oriented. Varying standards are applicable to most private educational institutions under certain circumstances. Regulations are comprehensive and vigorously enforced.

Most institutions must participate in the statutory Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) a special fund established by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure.

Persons who act as sales agents away from the school location may be required to possess a valid private school agent's permit to solicit or represent education. Such persons are required to be bonded for the purpose of recovering any damages sustained by students as a result of improper sales practices.

The Council for Private Postsecondary Educational Institutions, comprised of seven private education sector representatives and seven public members, advises the Superintendent on matters relating to private postsecondary education as an integral element in the structure of California education. Council work is directed toward maintaining private control and autonomy in the administration of the private postsecondary schools and colleges.
