74-32,170.Certificate of approval; application, contents; term; renewal; notice of intent to nonrenew. (a) After review of an application for a certificate of approval and if the state board determines that the institution meets the requirements of this act and the standards established by the state board, the state board shall issue a certificate of approval to the institution. Certificates of approval shall be in a form specified by the state board. Certificates of approval shall state:

(1) The date of issuance and term of approval;

(2) the correct name and address of the institution;

(3) the signature of the chief executive officer of the state board or a person designated by the state board to administer the provisions of this act; and

(4) any other information required by the state board.

(b) Certificates of approval shall be valid for a term of one year.

(c) Each certificate of approval shall be issued to the owner of an institution and shall not be transferable. If a change in ownership of an institution occurs, the new owner shall apply within 60 days prior to the change in ownership for a new certificate of approval. The state board may waive the sixty-day requirement upon determination that an emergency exists and that the waiver and change in ownership would be in the best interests of students currently enrolled in the institution. Whenever a change in ownership occurs as a result of death, court order or operation of law, the new owner shall apply immediately for a new certificate of approval.

(d) At least 120 days prior to expiration of a certificate of approval, the state board shall forward to the institution a renewal application form. Any institution desiring to renew its certificate of approval, shall complete and submit the application for renewal to the state board at least 60 days prior to the expiration of the institution's certificate of approval.

(e) Unless exempt from the provisions of this act pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 74-32,164, and amendments thereto, an institution shall not accept payments for tuition, fees or other enrollment charges until the institution receives a certificate of approval from the state board.

(f) Any institution which does not plan to renew a certificate of approval shall notify the state board of its intent not to renew at least 60 days prior to the expiration date of the certificate of approval.
