Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Educational Institution Bond

How much does a private school bond cost in Georgia?

Georgia’s Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission requires nonpublic postsecondary educational institutions to post surety bonds in varying amounts that are determined by the school’s amount of gross tuition during the previous year. If the school is a new establishment, the required bond amount is based on the amount of estimated gross tuition for the current year.

Because these bonds are school-related, surety underwriting companies require current business financials and a personal financial statement to underwrite these bonds. Having these documents readily available will expedite the bonding process and could help you get approved at a lower rate.

Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Georgia nonpublic postsecondary educational institution surety bond, principals (nonpublic postsecondary schools) pledge to conduct business in accordance with the provisions of the Nonpublic Postsecondary Educational Institutions Act of 1990 (O.C.G.A. 20-3-2.50.1). These bonds guarantee that principals will reimburse students/tuition payers for tuition and other fees if the school cannot deliver services for which it was contracted.

If the principal fails to conduct business according to the terms of the surety bond contract, the surety will pay up to the full bond amount to the entity who suffers financial loss as a result of the principal’s violation(s). The principal must then reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
