State Authorization

Guiding Educational Institutions on State Authorization

Educational institutions at the K-12 and post-secondary levels must comply with a myriad of laws and regulations which vary greatly from state to state.  As part of the regulatory process, state oversight agencies require educational institutions to meet and maintain certain standards in order to obtain authorization to operate within the state.   

The attorneys in HMBR’s Education Practice have a firm understanding of the complex rules and regulations associated with state authorization processes, and our lawyers offer a wide range of services to help educational institutions fulfill state approval and licensure requirements. These services include:

Beyond guiding education clients through state authorization requirements and procedures, HMBR attorneys also routinely counsel clients on authorization issues that may surface in connection with their commercial transactions.  We also monitor and track changes and developments in the law that may place additional requirements or restrictions on our clients’ educational programs and offerings.
