This bill provides that the Secretary of Higher Education will revoke a proprietary school's license to award academic degrees if the school fails to achieve a six-year graduation rate of at least 75% for full-time students enrolled in a four-year degree program by the completion of the sixth full academic year that occurs following the bill's effective date. The bill further provides that the secretary will revoke a proprietary school's license to award academic degrees if the school fails to achieve a three-year graduation rate of at least 75% for full-time students enrolled in a two-year degree program by the completion of the sixth full academic year that occurs following the bill's effective date. However, if after five years, a proprietary school is not on track to achieve these minimum graduation rates for full-time students, but is making sufficient progress toward achieving that goal, the secretary at his discretion may allow the school additional time to achieve the rates before revoking the school's license to award academic degrees.
