School Exemption Verification

Effective January 1, 2022, the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education within the Department of Consumer Affairs is prohibited from verifying the exemption of, or contracting to handle complaints for, a nonprofit institution that operated as a for-profit institution during any period on or after January 1, 2010, unless the Attorney General has first verified specified information regarding the nonprofit institution. (Education Code, section 94874.1, subdivision (a).) To request verification from the Attorney General, the nonprofit institution must submit the “Application for Verification,” Form CT-SCHOOL-1.

California regulations related to the Application for Verification can be found at California Code of Regulations, title 11, section 940.
