The primary purpose for GNPEC is to ensure each authorized college or school is educationally sound and financially stable. Specifically, GNPEC works to 1) assure prospective and enrolled students that the program of study and supporting elements of the institutions meet minimum standards, 2) assure prospective employers that institutions have been vetted for providing graduates with appropriate job skills, and 3) assure the general public, federal agencies, and other state agencies that programs meet minimum standards.
