STUDENT CONSUMER INFORMATION

Below you may find some helpful information that may assist you as you register for classes or continue your education.

 

PROGRAM INTEGRITY & ACCREDITATION

TPCA is licensed by the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR) and currently in candidate status for accreditation by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). To ensure all prospective students are provided with pertinent information needed to make informed decisions about enrollment, each agency requires schools to provide valuable information regarding outcome rates in the areas of graduation, placement, and licensure. TPCA obtains this information by applying quantitative standards to an identified cohort of students each year, then reviewing the performance of that cohort over time to determine how many completed their program within a reporting period. Note: Outcome rates are calculated for the institution as a whole; NACCAS does not measure outcome rates for individual programs. 

 

The following statistics represent program graduation, licensure exam pass rates, and job placement rates derived from a single cohort of students as of November 30, 2018, for the NACCAS 2017 Annual Report.
