Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre – Los Angeles is licensed by the Bureau for Private-Post Secondary Education:

Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre – Los Angeles reserves the right to withdraw or modify the courses of instruction and faculty/staff members at any time. Any changes in policy, programs, faculty/staff, guidelines and federal regulations are updated annually.

The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) was established by the legislature to protect any California resident who attends a private-post secondary institution from losing money, if there was prepaid tuition and financial loss, as a result of school closure, failure to live up to its enrollment agreement, or refusal to pay a court judgement.

If students are not residents of California, they are not eligible for the protection or recovery from the STRF law. To qualify for STRF reimbursement, a student must file an STRF application within one year of receiving notice that said school is closed from the Council for Private Post-Secondary and Vocational Education.

The institution’s application for renewal of approval to operate was denied by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education because the bureau determined the application did not satisfy the requirements to operate in California. The institution is appealing the bureau’s decision. The loss of the appeal may result in the Institution’s closure (CEC §94891(b) (2)). If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. We will keep you updated on this situation.

If you have any questions, complaints or problems which you cannot work out with the school, contact the: Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Information, P.O. Box 980818, West Sacramento, CA 95798-0818, web site:
