Form Tips

To decide what Forms to use and when, depends on when an activity is due or needs to take place. Forms for Licensed Schools are grouped as Relicensing or Mid-Year Forms. Relicensing relates to the June 1st annual due date. At Relicensing, it is not necessary to submit the following:

        1. Original Instructor Qualification Form Sets 1140CM/1145CM/1155CM *
        2. Original Director/AAO Form Sets 1150CM and 1155CM *
        3. A Catalog (or its Checklist Form or a Form 1280CM) **
        4. An Enrollment Agreement (or its Checklist Form), ** and
        5. Updated Citizenship Affidavits, Option #1 (although Qualified Aliens, Option #2, must be refiled yearly)

In contrast, Mid-Year is any time other than for the June 1st due date. When a Mid-Year activity takes place . . . it is at the School's discretion. These forms are preferably submitted separate from Relicensing:

        1. Original Instructor Qualification Form Sets 1140CM/1145CM/1155CM *
        2. Original Director/AAO Form Sets 1150CM/1155CM *
        3. A Catalog (or its Checklist Form or a Form 1280CM), ** and
        4. An Enrollment Agreement (or its Checklist Form). **

* - These are due within (30) days of hire.
** - These may be filed any time during the year, but must be submitted then approved by the OBPVS before use begins.
