(3) an agent's misrepresentation in procuring the student's enrollment.
(d) A surety on a bond may be released after the surety has made a written notice of the release directed to the department at least thirty (30) days before the release. However, a surety may not be released from the bond unless all sureties on the bond are released.
(e) A surety bond covers the period of the accreditation.
(f) Accreditation under this chapter shall be suspended if a postsecondary proprietary educational institution is no longer covered by a surety bond or if the postsecondary proprietary educational institution fails to comply with section 16 of this chapter.
