The Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Educational Institution Bond is required by the State of Georgia, Nonpublic Secondary Education Commission. The bond states that you agree to follow the Nonpublic Postsecondary Educational Act of 1990.

According to the state of Georgia, the term “nonpublic” means a private secondary educational institution not established, operated or governed by the state of Georgia. It can also refer to any public or private postsecondary educational institution legally operating in another state or nation that conducts postsecondary activities in Georgia or offers postsecondary instruction leading to a postsecondary degree or certificate granted to Georgia students from a location outside Georgia.
