Current through Reg. 46, No. 53; December 31, 2021

(a) The Commission may declare a school to be closed when:
(1) written notification is received by the Commission from the school owner stating the school will close;
(2) Commission determines that the school facility has been vacated without prior notification of a change of address given to the Commission;
(3) an owner with multiple school locations transfers all students from one school location to another school location;
(4) the school dismisses all students, contrary to the school's class schedule as printed in the school catalog; or
(5) the school fails to maintain the faculty, facilities, equipment, or courses of instruction on the basis for which approval was issued.
(b) After the Commission determines that a school will close or is closed, the Commission will attempt to notify students concerning their options to accept a teach-out or to receive a proportional tuition refund based on available funds. Notification to students may include constructive notice in news media, student meetings, or mailings to students.

(1) Transfers of students from a closed school to another school under the same ownership shall not constitute a teach-out.
(2) In order to be eligible for a teach-out, students shall submit a signed statement of acceptance to the teach-out school by the deadline as established by the Commission.
(3) The school offering the teach-out shall give credit for all comparable training received at the closed school, as determined by the Commission.
