Consumer Information - Proprietary School

    Consider the following before investing in your postsecondary education:

    • Verify that the proprietary school is registered with the Idaho State Board of Education.
    • Proprietary schools are prohibited from offering degrees.
    • Be aware that most proprietary schools are not accredited and have not been through the rigorous review process involved with independent accreditation.
    • Research the curriculum followed by the school to ensure that it is recognized by respected trade associations or licensing boards.
    • Understand the total cost of the program.
    • Understand the time required to complete the program.
    • Research whether complaints have been made against the school. The Better Business Bureau may be a good resource.
