(a)  If a barber school seeks to be authorized by the Board as a postsecondary educational institution as set forth in 34 C.F.R. 600.9:

(1)           the school handbooks and enrollment agreements required by 21 NCAC 06F .0125 shall require prospective students to have a high school diploma or equivalent; and

(2)           the school shall submit a copy of the student's high school diploma or equivalency documentation with each Form BAR-3 required by 21 NCAC 06N .0104 as set forth in 21 NCAC 06F .0113.

(b)  If a barber school meets the requirements set forth in Paragraph (a) of this Rule, the Board shall include the phrase "Postsecondary Institution" on the barber school permit issued under G.S. 86A-13. If the school already holds a school permit issued by the Board, the Board shall issue the permit with the phrase "Postsecondary Institution" at no additional cost, and the school shall relinquish the permit without the phrase to the Board.

(c)  The Board shall determine that a school no longer complies with Paragraph (a) based on an inspection or investigation, notification to the Board by the school, or a failure by the school to comply with Paragraph (a)(2) of this Rule. If the Board makes this determination:

(1)           the Board shall issue at no charge a duplicate copy of the permit without the phrase "Postsecondary Institution";

(2)           the school shall relinquish to the Board the permit with the phrase "Postsecondary Institution"; and

(3)           the Board shall notify the federal Department of Education of the school's change in postsecondary status.

(d)  This Rule shall not be construed to authorize the Board to delay issuing a permit without the phrase "Postsecondary Institution" to a school that otherwise meets the requirements of the North Carolina General Statutes and the rules of the Board.
