You May Be Eligible For An Exemption From State Supervision
TWO: State Authorization
AND THREE: Accreditation
To learn about licensing, state authorization and accreditation in more detail, be sure to check out our other videos here.
When it comes to state authorization you have two options:
ONE: Getting approval
AND TWO: Exemption from state supervision
Our focus in this video will be on the types of institutions that can obtain exemption.
Before we dive into these, remember that each state will have its own unique criteria for exemption, so it is essential that you familiarize yourself with them right from the start.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s find out who can qualify!
Religious institutions that exclusively offer courses related to this field could qualify in almost THIRTY states.
Exemption could be obtained if you offer programs that don’t lead to career opportunities - also known as recreational programs - such as yoga.
Members-only educational programs offered by trade, business, or professional organizations can also qualify for exemption.
If you operate a Test Preparation Institution, to qualify for exemption from state supervision, you must:
ONE: Assist with exam preparation for students seeking admission to post-secondary institutions.
AND TWO: Offer licensing exam preparation including through a continuing education program.
Offering vocational courses such as cooking and auto-mechanics may be eligible in some states, but once again, qualification criteria will vary depending on your institution’s location.
Finally, Federal Government Regulated Institutions or other federal agencies aren’t required to get state approval.
Remember that this is just a guide, and you should never assume that you are exempt without checking first!
