Important Information - BPPE California

April 29, 2023

California BPPE today released a memo targeted at out-of-state institutions subject to requirements for registration with the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. Recent law changes both expanded the set of institutions subject to registration requirements and also expanded the set of laws that registered institutions must comply with.


These are changes that apply to institutions enrolling Californians from a location outside California, with notable exceptions (i.e., public and nonprofit accredited, degree-granting institutions). For a sense of which institutions are subject to registration requirements prior to expansion, you can view our list of registered institutions here:
