The Purpose Behind this Legislation:




The purpose in requiring certain private secondary institutions to register with the state is to deter and prevent instances of fraudulent activity against students.

* the nature of the school, whether it is for profit or non-profit;

* the school’s enrollment agreement, including how refund requests are handled;

* a detail of the procedures used to address student complaints, including the length of time the school will take to respond to a complaint lodged by a pupil;

* assurances that students will not be retaliated against for making a complaint;

* the posting of a surety bond for no less than $5,000




New Mexico Postsecondary Education Bond: Amount




The New Mexico post secondary education bond will be in an amount that is equal to 20% of the real or projected gross revenues of the school,


no less than $5,000.




New Mexico Private Postsecondary Education Bond: In Whose Name




The New Mexico private postsecondary education bond is to be issued in the name of the school and the school’s corporate name, not an individual.




Purpose of the New Mexico Private Postsecondary Education Bond




This bond is required by the state of New Mexico to protect the students from fraud or misrepresentation by the private institution.
