Postsecondary Registration - Iowa Code Sections 714.18 and 714.19
Persons, Firms, Associations or Corporations Required to File
Postsecondary Educational Institutions
The requirements of Iowa Code Section 714.18 apply to all Iowa-based and out-of-state for-profit postsecondary educational institutions. These requirements also apply to certain Iowa-based non-profit institutions and, with rare exception, all out-of-state non-profit postsecondary educational institutions that offer courses of instruction in Iowa. An out-of-state postsecondary educational institution that offers a course of instruction via distance education in Iowa and that is not required to register in Iowa for that purpose must nevertheless file evidence of financial responsibility with the Commission or substantiate its qualification for an exemption (see below for more information about exemptions).
Other Instructional Schools
Iowa Code Section 714.18 also applies to other instructional schools that offer courses which may not be restricted to postsecondary students and that do not result in postsecondary educational credentials. These schools and courses include, but are not limited to, those that offer driver training, real estate licensure or continuing education, taxidermy training, and computer software training.
