Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE)
ATA College is approved to operate by the State of California’s Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) and upholds the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009. “Approval” or “approval to operate” means that the Bureau has determined and certified that an institution meets minimum standards established by the Bureau for integrity, financial stability, and educational quality, including the offering of bona fide instruction by qualified faculty and the appropriate assessment of students’ achievement, prior to, during, and at the end of its program.
The BPPE protects students and consumers through the oversight of California’s private postsecondary educational institutions by conducting qualitative reviews of educational programs and operating standards, proactively combating unlicensed activity, impartially resolving student and consumer complaints, and conducting outreach.
