How to Close a School

The following steps must be followed in the event a hospital-based school needs to cease operations.

Notify the Office of Higher Education at least 60 days prior to school closure, in writing, so that we may work with you.


The Office of Higher Education, in writing, will acknowledge the school's intention to close and outline the necessary procedures to follow:

  • Verify that all course work will be or has been completed by current students.  If they have not completed their training, please provide the Office of Higher Education with names and addresses of schools, names of students and expected completion dates since these students may be transferring to other institutions to complete their program of study.

  • Verify whether there are refunds due to any students.

  • Notify the Office of Higher Education as to whether records will be maintained by you as prescribed in Section 10a-22k-5(f) of the Regulations of State Agencies or shall be filed with the Executive Director of the Office of Higher Education.  The following student records must be preserved and maintained into perpetuity:  (1) admission and cumulative records of students including the results of achievement tests, if any, academic grades and attendance showing the names and permanent address of each student; (2) the date the student began instruction at the school; (3) a copy of the individual enrollment agreement; (4) information about each program in which the student is or was enrolled, including name of program, length of program in clock hours or credit hours, tuition paid in each calendar quarter; and (5) date of last instruction or of course completion.

  • Verify whether, if applicable, final payment has been made to the Student Protection Fund.

  • Complete and return Affidavit of Requirements for School Closure (Page 30 - Affidavit of School Closure)

  • Complete and return Designation of Agent of Service and Maintenance of Records (Pages 31 and 32 - Designation of Agent of Service)
