The Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) authorizes and regulates the operations of in-state nonpublic and out-of-state postsecondary colleges and schools operating or offering instruction in Georgia.
The Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) was established by legislation enacted in 1990. GNPEC operations began in 1991, and the first Commission members were appointed in 1992. Prior to the creation of GNPEC, the Georgia Department of Education was responsible for the regulation of nondegree-granting schools (under the Proprietary School Act) and degree-granting schools (under the Postsecondary Educational Authorization Act). Under the 1990 Act, these earlier statutes were repealed and regulatory authority was consolidated with the Commission.
