New School Just Starting Out?

Cyanna can determine if your school:

  • Qualifies for exemption from licensing
  • Requires licensing from the state post-secondary or higher education board
  • Requires licensing from a different state board, like the cosmetology board
  • Requires licensing from multiple boards within a state, such as the postsecondary education board and board of nursing
  • Requires licensing by state post-secondary or higher education boards in multiple states, in the case of offering online and/or hybrid programs

Once the scope of requirements is determined, Cyanna guides the process of obtaining all required approvals for the school, staff, faculty, curriculum, and more.

Already licensed and ready for the next steps?

Cyanna helps institutions identify which accrediting body is right for your school, and has established relationships with national, regional and programmatic accrediting agencies. We’ve worked on hundreds of accreditation projects and can help with:

  • Institutional & Programmatic Accreditation and Reaccreditation
  • Title IV Program participation
  • SEVIS Approval

Let us know your goals and Cyanna can review your institution’s eligibility, identify the best path forward, and create a plan to turn your vision into a reality.

Thinking even bigger?

Cyanna can help your institution adapt and expand, as we’ve done many times in the past by assisting with:

  • Moving from certificate to degree granting
  • Adding distance learning programs
  • Adding branch campuses and/or opening new locations
  • School acquisition and change of ownership filings

Cyanna’s consultants have all worked in schools and understand the desire to grow. We can help you do just that, while staying in compliance!

Find yourself on the wrong side of regulations?

Maintaining educational compliance is a complex task, and oftentimes institutions can miss steps necessary to staying up and running. Fortunately, we have extensive experience navigating that rocky terrain. Cyanna has assisted schools with:

  • Compliance audits
  • Deferral responses
  • Showing Cause and Probation reporting & responses
  • Creating Standard Operating Procedures & Compliance Calendars

As long as your organization is committed to operating within the regulations, Cyanna can help establish policies and procedures to get to compliance and collect the documentation to prove it.
