AS 14.43.148. Nonrenewal of License.

(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a licensing entity may not renew a license issued to a borrower if the licensing entity has received notice from the commission that the licensee is in default on a loan made by the commission. If the licensee has appealed the determination of default status, the commission shall notify the licensing entity and renewal may not be denied under this section unless and until the appeal has been concluded and the default status affirmed. Unless a temporary license is issued under (c) of this section, the denial of renewal is effective at the beginning of that renewal period. Denial of renewal of a license shall continue until the licensing entity receives notice of a release from the commission. If a license is denied under this section, the licensing entity shall refund the renewal fee less the temporary license fee, if any.

(b) The licensing entity shall provide written notice of the denial of renewal of the license by giving written notice to the licensee or sending the notice to the licensee's last known mailing address on file with the licensing entity. The licensing agency shall include with the notice a form to request review under (d) of this section; the form must include the commission's address and telephone number. The notice must inform the licensee of the temporary license granted under (c) of this section if the applicant is otherwise eligible and that, upon expiration of that time period, renewal of the license will be denied unless the licensing entity receives a notice of release under (f) of this section from the commission.

(c) A licensing entity shall issue a temporary license valid for the first 150 days of the renewal period to a licensee whose license renewal is denied under this section if the licensee is otherwise eligible for renewal. Only one temporary license may be issued during a renewal period. The licensing entity shall adopt by regulation a fee for issuance of a temporary license under this section; the amount of the fee shall be set so that the fees collected under this section, to the extent reasonable, cover the costs of implementing and administering this section.

(d) Within 30 days after receiving the notice under (b) of this section, the licensee may request review by the commission. AS 44.62 (Administrative Procedure Act) does not apply to the denial of renewal of a license under this section. Within 30 days after receiving a written request for review, the executive director shall inform the applicant in writing of the executive director's findings. The executive director's finding is a final decision that may be appealed to the superior court under the Alaska Rules of Appellate Procedure.

(e) For the purpose of review under (d) of this section, the licensee has the burden to show that

(1) the commission has not sent a notice of default in compliance with AS 14.43.145 (b);

(2) the notice of default has been rescinded after review under AS 14.43.145(c); or

(3) the licensee has met the requirements of (f) of this section.

(f) The commission shall provide a notice of release to the licensing entity if the licensee

(1) pays all costs of collection and the interest and principal that would have been due if the loan had not been accelerated; or

(2) has negotiated a payment schedule with the commission after the loan is in default and has made complete and timely payments under the negotiated agreement for the four most recent and consecutive months.

(g) Notwithstanding (a) of this section, the denial of renewal of a teacher's certificate is effective not sooner than the end of the contract year after the commission has notified the teacher of the default status of the loan as provided under AS 14.43.145 .

(h) In this section,

(1) "license"
