STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

The 1990 laws governing solicitation of students in the state of Nebraska and the licensing of private postsecondary career schools in the state went into effect July 10, 1990. Any person representing a privately owned business, trade, technical and/or correspondence school located outside the state of Nebraska soliciting or selling in Nebraska any correspondence course and/or any business, trade or technical school providing training in residence, is required to secure a permit for operation from the Commissioner.

Such application is made on forms furnished by the Department of Education and accompanied by appropriate fees and surety bonds in the penal sum of $5,000.00 per agent. The school must show evidence of licensure in the state in which it is located or evidence of accreditation by a regional or national accrediting agency. The bonds are provided for indemnification of any student suffering loss as a result of fraud or misrepresentation used in securing enrollment.

The permit required is valid for the calendar year in which it is issued, irrespective of the date issued. The 1990 Private Postsecondary Career School Authorization Act mandates Nebraska resident schools to apply to the Department of Education for course accreditation within five years of operation or lose authority to operate. An accredited school may petition the Department for authority to award an Associate degree.
