The Board defines physical presence as the use of any Arizona address, Arizona phone numbers, contact information of anyone listing an Arizona address or program offerings in Arizona.

Persons who are not operating private postsecondary programs under the Board’s jurisdiction are not required by law to obtain a statement of exemption or waiver from the Board.  Similarly, the Board is not required to issue statements of exemption or waiver."
