Education/Continuing Education/University Extension Programs may not

programs only when the institution providing the instruction is located
in California, has an Institution Participation Agreement with the
Commission, and meets the requirements of a qualifying institution as defined
by section 69432.7(l) of the California Education Code.

eligible institutions only if the participant is enrolled at the California
