Massachusetts Private Occupational School Bond

How much does a proprietary occupational school bond cost in Massachusetts?

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure Office of Private Occupational School Education requires private occupational schools to post a surety bond. The amount required for each school is determined by the state’s auditor and should be in an amount no less than $5,000 for each school license and no less than $1,000 for each sales representative of the school. The required bond amount must be enough to cover tuition for all students.

These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the cost of this bond is based on a review of the applicant’s personal credit report. Applicants should also have current business financials and a personal financial statement available during the bonding process, as most surety underwriting companies require this information to produce school-related bonds.
