ANNUAL RENEWAL APPLICATIONBack to the aapllivation main page

Annual Renewal: All approved PBVS institutions must submit a renewal application each year following the issuance of a permit of approval other than the year the Permit of Approval – 5 Year Review is required.


  • The annual renewal application must be submitted to the IBHE no later than Friday, April 25, 2014.

Application Instructions: The following links will open up the documents you need to complete and submit to IBHE to apply for the annual renewal.  You can save the documents in one of two ways: either (1) right click and select “save link as” or (2) click on the link opening the document and then save the blank application files to your computer.

Once you complete all items, follow the instructions in the document “Application” under the “General Information” section that explains how to submit them as a package to the IBHE for consideration.

Note that fees are assessed for the review of applications. The fees were approved so that IBHE would have the staff to review applications and complete PBVS oversight activities. Payment of the fee does not guarantee approval of the annual renewal.
