Welcome to GNPEC

The Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) was established by legislation enacted in 1990. The Commission staff began operation in 1991 and the first Commission members were appointed in 1992. Prior to the creation of GNPEC, the state Department of Education was responsible for regulating nondegree-granting schools (under the Proprietary School Act) and degree-granting schools (under the Postsecondary Educational Authorization Act). The Commission’s Act repealed this earlier statutes and consolidated regulatory authority in the Commission.

A seven person staff headed by an Executive Director appointed by the Governor handles the day-to-day activities of GNPEC. The staff is comprised of a Deputy Director, four professional staff members, and an office manager
