Registration signals that a provider is able to operate legally within Barbados.

The goal of registration is to certify that a provider meets the requirements established by the Council to offer post-secondary/ tertiary education and/or training programmes of study or courses in Barbados.

How To Become Registered?

To become registered, the provider must meet the requirements established by the Council and pay the requisite fees. Once a provider is registered, it may then apply for accreditation of the institution and/or programme(s) of study or courses. Registration shall be for a period of one (1) calendar year (January to December) after which the provider must re-apply to maintain its status. Registered providers are required to apply for re-registration at least two (2) months before the registration period expires and pay the requisite registration fee.
