STATE BOARDS FOR PRIVATE POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION
Each state has an agency that has the authority to grant licensure or approval for private postsecondary vocational schools, non-degree-granting, and degree-granting institutions.
MCP has completed licensure applications for a variety of schools as consultants and school partners since 2004 in a number of states. Each state has very different requirements for licensure, as well as varying application processes. Applying for school licensure is a daunting and detailed process for both content and documentation with very specific language and specific formats and deadlines for submission. In most cases, a business plan and realistic accrual basis financial projections with balance sheet also have to be drawn up for submission, along with a school catalog, enrollment agreement, refund policies, complaint procedures, with sample marketing and curriculum ancillaries according to stated guidelines.
If anything is out of balance, the application will be returned delaying the licensing process further. This equates to prospective loss of tuition income each day your school is not able to begin marketing and enrollment.
That’s why it’s important to have experienced and professional licensing consultants such as MCP at your side. Our background in higher education has given us the experience to truly understand the language of the regulators and the ability to recognize the intent of the policy makers. We are able to offer both our state licensing clients and school partners practical solutions that will fulfill a new school owner’s business vision.
We provide much more than the licensing service. We provide a complete turnkey school package ready to implement and make you money.
