HARTFORD — Today the House passed, in concurrence with the Senate, Senate Bill 26 – An Act Making Permanent the Moratorium on the Approval of Programs at Independent Institutions of Higher Education. The legislation that would make permanent the moratorium that permits independent institutions of higher education to create up to twelve new programs per year without approval from Connecticut’s Office of Higher Education (OHE).

Connecticut is one of the few states that requires some institutions of higher education to submit new curricula for program approval to OHE. Most independent institutions of higher education in the state are now operating under a moratorium that exempts up to twelve new courses from the approval process of the OHE.

“Both Sacred Heart and Fairfield Universities are strong assets to our community and our state.

Laura Devlin (R-134). “I was happy to do my part in supporting this legislation.”
