Chinese People-Run tertiary education institutions have grown dramatically in recent years. This paper aims to discuss the government deregulation policy and its impact on private tertiary education in China since the 1980s, particularly on south and west China, Gui Zhou province. Three colleges have been selected respectively from economically developed area, Guangdong province, and comparative undeveloped province, Gui Zhou. Three hundred and eight questionnaires have been examined in order to portrait the status quo of private tertiary education in south and west China.
