	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2296, Block. California Private Postsecondary Education Act of
2009.
   (1) Existing law, the California Private Postsecondary Education
Act of 2009, provides, among other things, for student protections
and regulatory oversight of private postsecondary schools in the
state. The act is enforced by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary
Education within the Department of Consumer Affairs. The act
prohibits an institution, as defined, from, among other things,
offering an unaccredited doctoral degree program without disclosing
to prospective students prior to enrollment that the degree program
is unaccredited, whether the degree issued is in a field that
requires licensure in California, and any known limitation of the
degree, including, but not limited to, whether the degree is
recognized for licensure or certification in California and other
states.
   This bill would apply that prohibition to the offering of
associate, baccalaureate, and master's degree programs without
disclosing that the institution, or specified degree program, is
unaccredited, and would list specified limitations of the degree
program whose disclosure the bill would require.
   (2) The act requires an institution to provide a prospective
student prior to enrollment with a school catalog, which is required
to contain specified disclosures relating to the school or a
particular educational program.
   This bill would require the school catalog to include a statement
specifying whether the institution, or any of its programs, are
accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the United States
Department of Education, and, if the institution is unaccredited, or
offers an associate, baccalaureate, master's, or doctoral degree
program that is not accredited, the bill would require the statement
to disclose the known and specified limitations of the degree
program.
   (3) The act requires an institution to provide a prospective
student prior to enrollment with a School Performance Fact Sheet,
which is required to contain specified information relating to the
educational program, including, among other things, salary or wage
information if the institution or a representative of the institution
makes any express or implied claim about the salary that may be
earned after completing the educational program.
   This bill would remove that limitation, and require all
institutions to include salary or wage information in the fact sheet,
not just institutions that make express or implied claims about the
salary that may be earned after completing the educational program.
The bill would require the fact sheet to include the most recent
3-year cohort default rate for federal student loans reported by the
United States Department of Education and the percentage of students
receiving federal student loans if the institution participates in
federal financial aid programs, as specified.
   (4) Existing law defines graduates employed in the field for
purposes of the act.
   This bill would revise that definition to include graduates who
are gainfully employed within 6 months of a specified date in a
single position for which the institution represents the program
prepares its graduates, as specified.
   (5) Existing law requires an institution to annually report
specified information regarding completion rates, job placement
rates, license examination passage rates, and salary and wage
information to the bureau and to publish that information in its
School Performance Fact Sheet. Existing law requires the information
used to substantiate these rates to be documented and maintained by
the institution for at least 5 years, and authorizes an institution
to retain the information in electronic format.
   This bill would additionally require an institution to annually
report, and publish in its School Performance Fact Sheet, the most
recent official 3-year cohort default rate for federal student loans
for the institution and the percentage of enrolled students receiving
federal student loans. The bill also would require the information
used to substantiate the annually reported rates and information to
include specified information, and would require an institution to
retain the information in an electronic format and make it available
to the bureau upon request.
    (6) The bill would require an institution that maintains an
Internet Web site to provide, on that Internet Web site, the school
catalog, a School Performance Fact Sheet for each educational program
offered by the institution, student brochures offered by the
institution, a link to the bureau's Internet Web site, and the
institution's most recent annual report submitted to the bureau. The
bill would also require the institution to include information
concerning where students may access the bureau's Internet Web site
anywhere the institution identifies itself as being approved by the
bureau.
