88-28-5. Registration of representatives.

(a) Each institution shall designate one individual who shall serve as the representative of that institution and who shall complete and submit a representative’s application on the form provided by the state board. A separate application shall be submitted for each institution that the individual seeks to represent, unless the institutions that the individual seeks to represent all have common ownership. The applicant and either an owner of the institution that the applicant seeks to represent or the owner’s designee shall sign the application and shall attest that if the registration is issued, the applicant will be employed by the institution.
(b) If the state board, upon review and consideration of an application, determines that the application is denied, the applicant shall be notified by the state board of the denial and each reason for the denial. The notice shall also advise the applicant of the right to request a hearing under K.S.A. 74-32,172 and amendments thereto.
(c) A certificate of registration for each institution with separate ownership shall be issued by the state board to the individual upon approval of the application. The certificate shall state the name of the registrant, the name of the institution that the registrant may represent, the date of issuance, and the date of expiration. The representative shall make available proof of the representative’s registration to each prospective student or enrollee, if asked, before engaging in any personal solicitation.
(d) On the state board’s own motion or upon a written complaint filed by any person doing business with the representative, an investigation of the representative may be conducted by the state board. Based upon the results of the investigation, the representative or the institution may be ordered by the state board to take corrective action, or proceedings may be initiated by the state board to revoke the representative’s certificate of registration pursuant to K.S.A. 74-32,172 and amendments thereto. (Authorized by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 74-32,165; implementing K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 74-32,174; effective Oct. 20, 2006; amended May 26, 2017.)
