Committee on Postsecondary Educational Institutions

Governor Lee signed 2022 Tenn. Pub. Ch. No. 1044 on May 11, 2022. The legislation is effective July 1, 2022, and refines how Tennessee regulates postsecondary educational institutions as defined in Title 49, Chapter 7, Part 20. The legislation streamlines the state authorization process and codifies current practices, while maintaining important consumer protections and institution accountability.  The Act dissolved the Committee on Postsecondary Educational Institutions.
