California has a new regulatory agency for private postsecondary schools. It will be know as the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. The legislation passed the Senate and is on the Governor's desk for signature. A new era in private postsecondary education has started.
For once we have a bill that we can work with without the onerous conditions of previous legislation. Known as the AB 48, Portantino. Private postsecondary education: California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009, supercedes the former Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Reform Act of 1989, which became inoperative on July 1, 2007, and was repealed on January 1, 2008, was administered by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education in the Department of Consumer Affairs. This bill would recast and revise the former act as the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009. The bill would establish the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education in the Department of Consumer Affairs as a successor agency to the former bureau. You can reach the BPPE at the following: PO Box 980818, Sacramento, CA 95798-0818, www.bppe.ca.gov, (916) 574-7774.
From the legislation, "An institution that did not have a valid approval to operate issued by, and did not have an application for approval to operate pending with, the former Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education on June 30, 2007, that began operations on or after July 1, 2007, may continue to operate, but shall comply with, and is subject to, this chapter, and shall submit an application for an approval to operate to the bureau pursuant to this chapter within six months of that application becoming available."
"Students seeking to enroll in institutions approved under subdivisions (a) and (b) shall be notified by the institution, in writing and prior to executing an enrollment agreement, that the institution’s application for approval to operate has not been reviewed by the bureau."
"An institution that is permitted to operate pursuant to subdivision (a) or (b) shall not use the terms “approval,” “approved,” “approval to operate,” or “approved to operate” without clearly stating that the institution’s application for approval has not been reviewed by the bureau."
