Glossary of Terms for State Licensing/Approving Agencies.
Williams, Revonda; Elosser, Bonnie
Definitions of 33 terms used by state agencies concerning licensing of private and independent colleges are presented. Information was obtained from statutes, rules, and regulations. In an effort to address the question of whether a set of terms and common definitions could be devised for licensing and approval officals, definitions are proposed for the following terms: accreditation, agent, approval, college, degree, instruction, institution, license, minimum standards, operation, out-of-state, ownership, permit, registration, solicitor, surety bond, and university. The proposed definitions are purposely brief with the intent to facilitate communication among officials. A list indicating the states that submitted materials and whether the state agency is concerned with degree-granting or nondegree granting is included. (SW)
