Private/Out-of-State

The Kansas Board of Regents Private Postsecondary Education Department authorizes private and out-of-state institutions to operate in Kansas with a Certificate of Approval that must be renewed annually. These schools offer instruction for business trade, technical or industrial occupations, or confer degrees. All schools operating with a physical presence in Kansas or that are actively soliciting* enrollment of prospective students to receive instruction in the state of Kansas must apply for a certificate of approval. An institution approved by the Kansas Board of Regents goes through a comprehensive and rigorous process to ensure it is educationally sound and financially stable.

*Active solicitation of Kansas students may include (but is not limited to) trying to attract Kansas students (who will remain in Kansas while taking course work) by doing things like placing ads in Kansas papers or running ads on Kansas based TV or Radio stations, mailing Kansas residents written material, sending representatives into Kansas to attempt student recruitment, or engaging in other means of solicitation that specifically contacts or targets Kansas residents in order to encourage them to enroll.
