​Private Licensed Schools

Thank you for visiting the Pennsylvania Board of Private Licensed Schools website. Staff are currently teleworking from home because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are responding to email; however, responses may be delayed. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Entities that offer postsecondary entry-level career training must be licensed/registered by the State Board of Private Licensed Schools. The Board then also approves the program and course offerings at each school. Schools may be approved to award career diplomas and/or certificates. Schools that meet certain specific requirements may be approved to award occupational specialized associate degrees. The Division of Law Enforcement Education and Trade Schools staffs the Board.
