Renewal Application Process

The Office of Higher Education will provide the school a renewal application packet 180 days prior to the date of expiration of the school’s most recent certificate of authorization.  The renewal application packet will include: an application, and copies of the Connecticut General Statutes, Regulations of State Agencies, and financial requirements.

The school will submit a complete application to the Office of Higher Education with the required renewal fees of $200 per school and $200 per branch, 120 days prior to the date of expiration of the school’s most recent certificate of authorization.

The Office of Higher Education will determine that the school meets all the conditions of its recent authorization, and the filing of documentation with the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education that the school has a passing financial ratio score as required by 34 CFR 668, as amended from time to time.

The Office of Higher Education will conduct an evaluation visit per Sec. 10a-22k-4 of the Regulations of State Agencies.  Please see the Sec. 10a-22k-5 of the Regulations for the evaluation criteria that will be used for the visit.

Following the visit, the evaluation team chairperson will submit an evaluation report based on the findings by the evaluation team which will include recommendations for improvement. A recommendation of authorization or non-authorization will be submitted to the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education once evidence of corrections to any findings has been provided.

Except for initial visits, the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education shall accept institutional accreditation by an accrediting agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education in satisfaction of the requirements of Sections 10a-22b and 10a-22d of Connecticut’s General Statutes, including evaluation requirements, unless the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education finds reasonable cause not to rely upon such accreditation.

A representative from the Office of Higher Education shall be invited to participate, as an observer, in all initial and renewal accreditation visits by an accrediting agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education.

Each school shall keep financial records in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. An annual financial statement detailing the financial status of the school shall be prepared by school management and reviewed or audited by a licensed certified public accountant or licensed public accountant in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A copy of such financial statement shall be filed with the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education on or before the last day of the fourth month following the end of the school's fiscal year, except in the case of a nationally accredited school recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, in which case such financial statement shall be due on or before the last day of the sixth month following the end of the school's fiscal year. Only audited financial statements shall be accepted from a nationally accredited school. Upon a nonaccredited school's written request, the Executive Director may authorize, for good cause shown, a filing extension for a period not to exceed 60 days. No filing extensions shall be granted to a nationally accredited school.
