The Kentucky Commission for Proprietary Education was established by action of the 2012 Kentucky General Assembly; it replaced the Board of Proprietary Education. The commission is charged with licensing and regulating all proprietary schools, doing business in Kentucky, other than those that offer a four year bachelor’s degree. In addition it administers the Student Protection Fund which reimburses eligible students in the event a school closes, loses its accreditation or discontinues a program. The work of the commission is funded entirely through fees paid by licensed institutions.
