AUSTIN — Some college students in the Austin area are trying to figure out what they'll do next after learning that their campus is closing down.
Virginia College sent out a statement to students Wednesday about how the school wasn't able to resolve issues with the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. Administrators said the school has been placed on "institutional show cause" by the ACICS.
"As always, we continue to focus on helping our students graduate and assisting them with getting jobs in their fields. We are proud of our history, and we look forward to the success of our final class of students," the statement said.
The Austin campus is considered a "for-profit" school, and it focuses on technical training careers. Students told KVUE in a letter that they were informed the campus was closing Friday after class.
Students added that they've heard conflicting reports about whether or not they'll get their money back for the tuition they've paid or if their credits will transfer to a new school.
