How to become a proprietary school in Louisiana
The Board of Regents oversees proprietary schools, which are private businesses owned by one person, a partnership, a limited liability company or a corporation for the purpose of selling vocational/occupational courses to the general public. The responsibility of proprietary schools is to prepare individuals for gainful employment. These schools do not award academic degrees.
To meet the definition of a proprietary school, a private business must either maintain a physical facility within the state, have a mailing address within the state or employ at least one representative within the state. All licensed proprietary schools in Louisiana must abide by the Louisiana Proprietary Schools Law, R.S. 17:314et seq., that was enacted in 1972. Proprietary schools are licensed by the Board of Regents and adhere to the rules and regulations of the Louisiana Proprietary Schools Advisory Commission.
