The application shall be accompanied by evidence of the good reputation and character of the applicant and must state the institution that the applicant intends to represent.

The application for an agent's permit shall also be accompanied by evidence of a surety bond or other deposit as required by Alaska Stat. § 14.48.100 , and by payment of the required fees.
(b) An applicant for an agent's permit shall be an individual of good reputation and character and shall represent only a postsecondary educational institution or institutions that meet the minimum standards established in Alaska Stat. § 14.48.060 and the criteria established under AS 14.48.050(1).
(c) Following review of the application and any further information submitted by the applicant, and investigation of the applicant as the commission considers necessary, the commission shall either grant or deny an agent's permit to the applicant.

(1) the date of issuance, effective date, and term;
