DAR File No.: 41610

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Subsection 13-34-104(6) requires the Division of Consumer Protection (Division) to adopt rules establishing certain standards and criteria for the awarding of educational credentials, bona fide instruction through faculty interaction, and the determination of the ability of students to benefit from a program. Subsection 13-34-107(7) authorizes the Division to make rules providing for matters relating to bonding of schools. Subsection 13-2-5(1) gives the Director of the Division authorization to issue rules to administer and enforce the chapters listed in Section 13-2-1.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The Division is not aware of any written comments regarding the rules. The interpretation of this rule is at times the subject of informal proceedings before the Division.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The rule establishes standards and criteria for the awarding of education credentials, bona fide instruction through faculty interaction, and the determination of the ability of students to benefit from a program in fulfillment of the requirement of Subsection 13-34-104(6), see Section R152-34-4 and Subsection R152-34-6(l). The rule also establishes the amount of the bond, certificate, or letter of credit required under Subsection 13-34-107(7)(a), and other issues relating to bond, certificates, or letters of credit, see Subsections R152-34-7(9) through (14). This is necessary since the statute does not establish a specific bond amount. The rule also facilitates the Division's administration of registrations under the Postsecondary Proprietary School Act, e.g. Sections R152-34-1, R152-34-3, R152-34-5, R152-34-6, and R152-34-10 and the Division's statutory charge to protect students from deceptively promoted, inadequately staffed, and unqualified proprietary institutions and programs and enforce the Postsecondary Proprietary School Act, e.g., Sections R152-34-7, R152-34-9, and R152-34-11. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
