The Texas Workforce Commission says American Commercial College administrators are committed to completing the training for currently enrolled students. It's also possible ACC will offer refunds to current students, according to Deputy Director of Communications for the TWC, Mark Lavergne.

In mid-October, the TWC sent a notice to ACC campuses in Abilene and Lubbock that they intended to revoke the certification.

The notice became public this week following an operation conducted by the U.S. Department of Education that shut down the campuses on Wednesday. Sources tell federal investigators are looking into the school's loan practices.

The TWC tells its investigation into ACC and negotiations about the school's future continue.

ACC sent the TWC all the material required in their notice of October 14, including the plan to offer students the option of a refund or completion of training. TWC is currently reviewing those plans.
