According to an article Friday on the website of KTXS TV in Abilene, the Texas Work Force Commission has informed American Commercial College that the Abilene campus is still in danger of losing its state certificate of approval.
The Lubbock and Abilene campuses were put on notice back in November that state regulators intended to revoke their certificates. Both are not allowed to enroll new students, pending an investigation by the U.S. Department of Education. American Commercial College is accused of falsifying records.
In Lubbock, ACC is also being sued by 14 students. In that lawsuit ACC recently filed a request before the judge asking to have the entire lawsuit put on hold for 60 days. A December 1st document says the students did not inform ACC of their grievances as required under state law and so the school is entitled to a delay. The request is repeated in a December 22nd document.
The judge has not ruled on ACC's motion.
The students claim ACC falsified statistics about job placement for graduates. The school is counter suing the students saying they breached their contract by suing instead of seeking arbitration.
