Proprietary School Registration
- The state of Idaho requires all proprietary schools that maintain a presence in the state of Idaho or operate from a location within the state of Idaho to register with the State Board of Education annually.
- Registration and operation requirements are found in Idaho Code, Title 33, Chapter 24 and Idaho Administrative Rule 08.01.11 Registration Proprietary Schools.
The State Board of Education does not approve curriculum nor endorse proprietary schools.
The School must ensure that all Certificate Program curriculum is in compliance with the applicable Idaho professional or trade board's standards. If no such board or agency exists, then national trade standards or trade/professional certification will apply.
If a school must close before current students have completed their courses/programs, school officials must immediately notify the Office of the State Board of Education, arrange for current students to transfer and complete their programs or directly refund 100% of previously paid tuition for the coursework and/or programs that can no longer be completed. The school must also publish a media notice of where, when and how current and former students may obtain their records and transcripts for a period of 45 work days.
