COVID-19 INDUSTRY GUIDANCE: Institutions of Higher Education

Dear Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education Licensees:

As the public health battle against COVID-19 continues, your help in slowing the spread is critical. COVID-19 affects us all — friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. That’s why it so important that we wear a mask, wash our hands, maintain physical distancing and don’t gather with people we don’t live with.

The state has issued interim guidelines for colleges and universities so they can reduce risk if in-person instruction resumes. The Bureau hopes that by adhering to the guidelines, schools will be able to provide a safe environment for their students, educators and clients and still help with flattening the COVID-19 curve.


Please ensure you are following the guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health and your local county requirements. For the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 and best practices on preventing its spread, visit the Bureau’s website, or .

Thank you for doing your part in helping California slow the spread of COVID-19. Our collective actions will save lives.
