The Board of Regents oversees proprietary schools – private businesses owned by one person, a partnership, a limited liability company, or a corporation for the purpose of selling vocational/occupational courses to the general public. The responsibility of proprietary schools is to prepare individuals for gainful employment. These schools do not award academic degrees.

In order to meet the definition of a proprietary school, a private business must either maintain a physical facility within the state, have a mailing address within the state, or employ at least one representative within the state. All licensed proprietary schools in Louisiana must abide by the Louisiana Proprietary Schools Law, R.S. 17:3140.1 et seq., that was enacted in 1972. Proprietary schools are licensed by the Board of Regents and adhere to the rules and regulations of the Louisiana Proprietary Schools Advisory Commission.

The Master Plan

 

To move Louisiana aggressively forward, the Board of Regents has embraced a robust new attainment goal that calls for 60% of all working-age adults (ages 25-64) in Louisiana to hold a degree or high-value credential by 2030. As we stand on the brink of a new decade, this Master Plan, born of the Board of Regents’ unique charge to guide postsecondary education across the state, will set the foundation to increase opportunity.  Our Talent Imperative is to Educate, Innovate, and Collaborate.
