Career School Forms and Applications
If you wish to establish a new school in Oregon or you are assuming
ownership of an existing school, please contact our office to schedule an
interview with Director of the Office of Private Postsecondary Education.
If you wish to add a program
to an existing private career school, please contact your designated Education
Specialist to review your plans prior to submitting an application or any fees.
All private career schools in Oregon must be reviewed for licensure
every year. The critical step of license renewal ensures that the operators
meet or exceed the standards and requirements set forth in Oregon Laws (ORS
345) and rules (OAR 715-045) and any other requirements set forth by the state
Personnel at Private Career Schools must be registered and meet basic
criteria set forth in HECC administrative rules.
If your school plans to enroll minors’ faculty, teachers, agents and
individuals who hold positions of authority and control in any career school
needs to be fingerprinted. (OAR 715-045-0003)
