SUBJECT:

Conferral of Degrees: Professional Business College and Taylor Business Institute

DATE:

January 20, 2006

STRATEGIC GOAL:

Goal 2

AUTHORIZATION(S):

 

 

SUMMARY

 

Issue for Decision (Consent Agenda)

 

Should the Regents confer degrees upon students completing programs at Professional Business College and Taylor Business Institute?

 

Reasons for Consideration

 

Required by State statute and State regulations.
                   

Proposed Handling

 

The question will come before the Higher Education and Professional Practice Committee at its February meeting where it will be voted on and action taken.  It will then come before the Full Board at its February meeting for final action.

 

Procedural History

 

Professional Business College is a provisionally chartered institution. Until its charter is made absolute, Education Law 224 requires that the Regents award degrees on its behalf.

 

Taylor Business Institute is a for-profit degree-granting institution. Pursuant to Regents Rule 3.46 its degree-granting authority reverted to the Regents when it changed ownership. Until such time as the institution demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Commissioner of Education compliance with laws, rules and regulations applicable to degree-granting institutions in New York State, the Regents will award degrees on behalf of the institution.

Recommendation 

 

It is recommended that the Board of Regents confer upon the individuals who have completed the requirements for their registered degree programs at Professional Business College and Taylor Business Institute as listed, the Associate in Occupational Studies degree.

 

 

Information in Support of Recommendation

 

Professional Business College

 

          Professional Business College was granted a provisional charter by the Board of Regents on June 17, 2003, authorizing the College to offer the Associate in Occupational Studies (A.O.S.) degree.  Until the Regents grant Professional Business College an absolute charter, all academic awards are to be conferred on graduates by the Regents.

Taylor Business Institute

 

          Taylor Business Institute was authorized by the Board of Regents on March 24, 1972 to grant the Associate in Occupational Studies (A.O.S.) degree. The Institute was purchased from ITT Educational Services, Inc. by Phillips Colleges, Inc. on April 13, 1988. On January 31, 1997, TBIO, Inc. purchased Taylor Business Institute from Phillips Colleges, Inc. On April 4, 2002, the Institute was purchased by the Benhem Company, Inc. (a New York corporation). Until the Regents have reauthorized Taylor Business Institute, under its new ownership, to award degrees, all academic awards are to be conferred on graduates by the Regents.
