STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

A legislative measure known as the Commission on Proprietary and College Registration Act was enacted by the Legislature effective July 1, 1992. (This revised and replaced the legislative measure known as the Mississippi School and College Registration Act that was signed by the Governor on May 22,1972.)

The Commission on Proprietary School and College Registration shall issue a certificate of registration to an applicant of good reputation offering one or more courses of instruction, upon determining that the applicant has the facilities, resources, and faculty to provide students with the kind of instruction that it proposes to offer. A certificate of registration shall be granted or denied within thirty (30) days of the receipt of the application. If the Commission has not completed its determination with respect to the issuance of the certificate of registration within such thirty-day period, it shall issue a temporary certificate to the applicant, which certificate is sufficient to meet the requirements of Section 75-60-13 until such time as determination is made. Any certificate issued by the Commission is valid only for the institution and courses for which it is issued and does not cover other schools or branches operated by the owner. A certificate of registration is valid for two (2) years, unless earlier revoked for cause by the Commission. The Commission shall adopt rules and regulations for administration of the registration process. The Commission may cause an investigation to be made into the correctness of the information submitted in any application for registration. If the Commission believes that false, misleading, or incomplete information has been submitted to it in connection with any application for registration, the Commission shall conduct a hearing on the matter and may withhold a certificate of registration upon finding that the applicant has failed to meet the standards for such certificate or has submitted false, misleading, or incomplete information. Application for a certificate of registration shall be made in writing to the Commission on forms furnished by the Commission. A certificate of registration is not transferable and shall be prominently displayed on the premises of an institution.

The Commission shall assign registration numbers to all schools registered with it. Schools shall display their registration numbers on all school publications and on all advertisements hearing the name of the school.

The application for a certificate of registration shall be accompanied by a surety bond in the penal sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000) with conditions and in a form prescribed by the Commission on Proprietary School and College Registration with at least one (1) corporate bonding company approved by the Department of Insurance as surety thereon. The bond shall provide for the indemnification of any person suffering loss as the result of any fraud or misrepresentation used in behalf of the principal in procuring such person's enrollment in a course of instruction, including repayment of tuition paid in advance by any student. The liability of the surety on such bond for the school covered shall not exceed the sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00) as an aggregate for all students for all breaches of the conditions of the bond by the school. The term of the bond shall be continuous, but it shall be subject to cancellation by the surety in the manner described in this section (75-60-25). The bond shall provide blanket coverage for the acts of all persons engaged as agents of the school without naming them and without regard to the time they are engaged during the term of the bond.

The issuance of a permit pursuant to Section 75-60-25 does not constitute approval of any course of instruction or the person or institution offering, conducting or otherwise administering the same, unless licensed by the Proprietary School and College Registration. Any representation contrary to this section or tending to imply that a permit issued pursuant to Section 75-60-25 constitute such approval is misrepresentation within the meaning of the provisions of this chapter.
