STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

Private business and trade schools are regulated under Title 14, Chapter 85 of the Delaware Code. All such private schools which prepare students for a vocation or for potential wage earning purposes are required to become approved by the State Board of Education. The law covers not only such schools operating in and from Delaware, but out-of-state schools soliciting students in the State. Correspondence schools are included. Approval is effective by calendar year. Surety bonding is required. Agents representing such schools must also be approved.

Occupational license fees are required of persons engaged in specific professions defined in Title 24 of the Delaware Code. Persons teaching courses in these professions may be required to obtain instructors licenses before engaging in such instruction. For example, the Board of Cosmetology requires instructors teaching cosmetology schools to have the required instructor's license.

Delaware does not have an agency which regulates private secondary, elementary and pre-elementary schools; however, such schools have annual reporting requirements, as set out in Title 14, Chapter 27 of the Delaware Code. Private colleges and universities incorporating in Delaware must be approved by the State Board of Education, pursuant to Title 8, Section 125 and Title 14, Section 122 of the Delaware Code.
