The Kentucky Association of Career Colleges and Schools is a voluntary organization for those who value higher education and seek innovative methods of improving the educational experience for students in the Commonwealth. Members find value in collaborating to share best practices and innovative methods of assisting students and in speaking with a unified voice while working hand in hand with legislators on matters that affect our students.
Partnerships among career colleges and schools make a significant impact on our sector both locally and nationally. Brian Newman, Director of State Affairs for the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) says of state organizations, “state associations play a vital role as the sector’s eyes and ears in over 25 state capitals. APSCU and the state associations work cooperatively on issues of mutual interest to our students and member institutions.”Non-public postsecondary colleges and schools authorized by the Kentucky State Board for Proprietary Education and the Council on Postsecondary Education are eligible for membership in KACCS. Fees are assessed annually for sustaining membership based on cohort population reported to the Kentucky State Board for Proprietary Education or the Council on Postsecondary Education. Members are invoiced annually at a rate of $8 per student. Applications for membership may be completed and submitted to the Executive Director or President of KACCS for consideration by the Board of Directors.
Associate Membership may be extended to organizations providing services to KACCS members or that have an interest in supporting KACCS. Fees for Associate Membership are assessed on an annual basis.
