State-Specific and Other Required Disclosures

  • Charter Oak State College is a registered institution with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, sections 136A.61 to 136A.71. Registration is not an endorsement of the institution. Credits earned at the institution may not transfer to all other institutions.
  • Sex Offender Registry: The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 is a federal law that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed at, institutions of higher education. The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act. The federal law requires state law enforcement agencies (in Connecticut, it is the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection; Connecticut State Police) to notify Charter Oak State College whenever a registered sex offender indicates that they are either enrolled, employed or carrying on a vocation at Charter Oak.

    A searchable database, available to the public, is maintained by the Connecticut State Police at the following website: http://www.communitynotification.com/cap_office_disclaimer.php?office=54567.

    Additionally, in accordance with Chapter 969, Section 54-258 of the General Statutes of Connecticut, the Registrar’s Office keeps a record of all registration information transmitted to it from the State Police and/or the CSCPA. This registration information is accessible to the public during the Registrar’s Office normal business hours, Monday through Friday.
