2015 - 2016 Consumer Disclosures
and Student Achievement

NOTICE: As of December 12, 2016, our accreditor, Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), is no longer recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. PC AGE has 18 months following the loss of our accreditation to find a new accrediting agency to maintain eligibility to receive funds under the Title IV, HEA programs. If PC AGE does not obtain accreditation within that 18 month period, which ends June 12, 2018, our school will no longer be eligible to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs.
If any student has a complaint relating to PC AGE’s Title IV eligibility, administration of the Title IV programs, the quality of education received at PC AGE, or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards of ACICS they can submit that complaint to PC AGE, 2815 Kennedy Blvd, 3rd floor, Jersey City, NJ 07306, ervag@pcage.edu; 201-761-0144; and/or any of the following entities:
