STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

Effective July 1, 1976 Kentucky House Bill 763 provided for the establishment of an eleven member State Board for Proprietary Education to "administer the provisions of (House Bill 763) pertaining to the conduct, operation, maintenance, and establishment of proprietary education institutions, and the activities of agents thereof when acting as such."

The bill defines a Proprietary School as "an education institution privately owned and operated by an individual, partnership, association or corporation offering training in business, trade, technical, industrial or related areas through residence, extension or correspondence for which tuition is charged." The definition of proprietary school in House Bill 763 does not include a school or educational institution licensed or approved by the Kentucky Board of Barbering (KRS 317.340), Hairdressers and Cosmetologists (KRS 317.480), Nursing Education (KRS 314.12 1), and Embalmers and Funeral Directors (KRS 316.170). An Agent is defined as "any person employed by an institution to act as agent, solicitor, broker or independent contractor to procure students for such school by solicitation of enrollment in any form made at any place other than the main office or principal place of business of the school." A proprietary school must hold a valid license from the State Board. Such licenses are valid for one school year beginning the first day of July and ending the thirtieth day of June the following year.

No proprietary school in Kentucky will be issued a license unless it meets certain minimum standards of instructional quality and course content; has adequate staffing, space, equipment, and materials; and has a certain quality of staff. The school must also provide a course outline and tuition schedule; award a diploma, degree, certificate or other appellation upon a student's satisfactory completion of instruction; maintain ordinances and state laws; and be financially sound and reasonably capable of fulfilling commitments to students for training and preparation. It also must not utilize advertising of any type which is untrue, deceptive or misleading; and it must adhere to a tuition refund schedule presented in published form prior to enrollment (in the event the student discontinues, or is excluded from, training).

The State Board for Proprietary Education has the power to inspect schools at times of its own choosing, requires financial surety from each school under its jurisdiction and has the mechanisms of a student redress system. It can close schools and, if the case warrants, invoke legal penalties against a school.
