Rule 3332-1-05 | Out-of-state schools.


(A) An out-of-state school desiring to solicit Ohio residents in Ohio must obtain a certificate of registration from the board. The certificate of registration shall state that it is for solicitation purposes only.

(B) Any out-of-state school who solicits students in Ohio must receive program authorization from the board for each individual program of study. The program authorization shall be for solicitation purposes only. Certificate, diploma, and degree programs will be approved for a two year period in conjunction with the renewal of the certificate of registration.

(C) The board recognizes that registration, approval or licensing laws and minimum standards of other states regulating proprietary schools may differ from Ohio laws and standards. Therefore, in issuing a certificate of registration or program authorization to an out-of-state school, the board may accept the minimum standards of other states having laws governing proprietary schools or the minimum standards of nationally recognized accrediting agencies providing the standards are similar to Ohio's minimum standards.

(D) All fees charged to out-of-state schools for certificates of registration and program authorization shall be the same as the fees charged to in-state schools unless otherwise noted in the board's fee schedule. Out-of-state schools submitting late renewal applications will be subject to late fees or other disciplinary action in accordance with section 3332.09 of the Revised Code.

(E) An agent from an out-of-state school who desires to solicit Ohio residents shall not be eligible to receive an agent permit unless the school the agent seeks to represent has a valid certificate of registration issued by the board to the school.

(F) An agent soliciting Ohio residents for an out-of-state school is subject to all the provisions outlined in Chapter 3332. of the Revised Code and agency 3332 of the Administrative Code.
