Welcome to the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education

The Bureau protects students and consumers through the oversight of California's private postsecondary educational institutions by conducting qualitative reviews of educational programs and operating standards, proactively combatting unlicensed activity, impartially resolving student and consumer complaints, and conducting outreach.

The Bureau is working to make the online data process more efficient. As such, the portal will open mid-December with a mid-April due date. The Bureau will notify institutions with specific dates for the portal opening and due date. The Bureau is now accepting financial statements (hard copies) pursuant to 5, CCR Section 74110(b).

We apologize for any inconvenience.
