Out-of-State Institution Registration
Last updated: 4/6/21
The California Education Code provides that all private postsecondary educational institutions with a physical presence in the state of California must apply for approval to operate with the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (Bureau).
Effective July 1, 2017, certain out-of-state private postsecondary educational institutions must register with the Bureau, pay a $1,500 registration fee and submit required documentation. Out-of-state institutions that register with the Bureau will also be required to collect Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessments from students who are California residents or enrolled in a residency program, and to otherwise comply with STRF regulations.
Inquiries regarding out-of-state institution registration should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries regarding STRF assessments and/or reporting should be directed to BPPE.STRFAssmntFee@dca.ca.gov
