Paul Bott Associates, Inc. 
Who We Are/What We Do

Paul Bott Associates was formed to help both new and existing career schools and colleges with a broad range of accreditation, government compliance, administration, planning, institutional assessment, instruction, and marketing issues. Dr. Paul Bott was a professor of professional studies and department chair at a major West Coast university. He served seven years on the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology, the last year as its Chair. He is the author of two texts which are widely used in occupational education teacher preparation, and he has served on three statewide task forces to determine standards for career and technical teacher preparation in California. He earned both graduate degrees from UCLA, a baccalaureate from California State University, Los Angeles, and an associate degree from Santa Monica College. Associates have similar backgrounds and specialize in a number of areas, including human resource development, organization development, financial aid, licensing, and specialized accrediting areas. We work with degree and non-degree private postsecondary schools, colleges or universities, vocational-technical schools, and specialized schools in the private proprietary sector of higher education. Our goal is to make any regulatory or compliance process as informative and painless as possible while also saving you time and money.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
