The Kentucky Commission on Proprietary Education was established by action of the 2012 Kentucky General Assembly. The Commission is charged with licensing and regulating all proprietary schools doing business in Kentucky, other than those that offer a four-year bachelor’s degree. In addition, it administers the Student Protection Fund, which reimburses eligible students in the event a school closes, loses its accreditation or discontinues a program. The work of the Commission is funded entirely through fees paid by licensed institutions.
