Authorization

In-state nonpublic and out-of-state postsecondary education institutions wishing to operate in the State of Georgia must file an application with the Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission.  Please review the contents of this page to determine what type of application might be appropriate for your institution.

Additionally, please be aware that if there has been no activity on the status of any document in Edvera after six (6) months, meaning the application's status changing from “Unsubmitted” to “Pending RS Approval” or from “Reverted to Institution” to “Pending RS Approval” and no modification to its content as requested by the Regulatory Specialist,  it will be removed from GNPEC records.  Extensions may be available if approved and documented by the Regulatory Specialist. After removal, should the institution desire to reapply for that application, it will be necessary to provide a new submission; any fees paid previously will be available as a credit.
