The mission of the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) is to ensure that each authorized in-state nonpublic and out-of-state postsecondary educational institution doing business in the State of Georgia is educationally sound and financially stable. In order to support this responsibility, GNPEC requires the submission and approval of an Institutional Proposal prior to receiving an invitation to attend the Initial Applicant Training meeting and access to the Initial Authorization Application. Please note that the Initial Applicant Training occurs on the first Wednesday of the month, and proposals must be received at least one week prior to the training to be included. Otherwise, you will be invited to attend the following month's training.
