Office of Proprietary Schools

Proprietary Schools are for-profit businesses which provide vocational education and training.  Under Article 8, Chapter 115D of the North Carolina General Statutes, the State Board of Community Colleges, acting by and through the State Board of Proprietary Schools, licenses proprietary schools in North Carolina.

Our purpose is to assure prospective and enrolled students and citizens of North Carolina that proprietary schools operating in North Carolina meet minimum standards of quality in their operation.  The pages below provide information on licensing regulations and processes, licensed schools, and additional resources related to establishing and maintaining post-secondary educational standards.
