Why do I need this bond?
New Hampshire postsecondary education bonds ensure that principals (postecondary education institutions) faithfully perform all agreements and contracts entered with students in compliance with the laws of the state. Specifically, this bond obligates the school, its officers, agents and employees to honor the terms and conditions of contracts for tuition and other instructional fees entered between the school and entity enrolling as students.
The bond should be used only for payment of a refund of tuition and instructional fees due to a student or potential student and the expense of investigating and processing the claims.

What’s the fine print?
New Hampshire postsecondary education bonds remain in full force and effect throughout the term of the school’s license. The surety company cannot be relieved of liability on the bond unless it gives the school and the Higher Education Commission 90 days’ written notice of the company’s intent to cancel the bond.
