As of Monday April 27th, Corinthian Colleges (the parent company for Heald College, Everest College, WyoTech, and Everest College Phoenix) has closed, discontinuing instruction at all of their branches. Campuses closed include Corinthian’s 13 remaining Everest and WyoTech campuses in California, Everest College Phoenix and Everest Online Tempe in Arizona, the Everest Institute in New York, and 150-year-old Heald College–including its 10 locations in California, one in Hawaii and one in Oregon. Everest College and WyoTech campuses that were previously sold to Zenith are not affected by the announcement and will remain open. A letter to the students has been posted here:http://www.cci.edu/multime…/…/CCI-student-letter_4.25.15.pdf.
How will I continue school? Corinthian is attempting to work with other schools to provide continuing educational opportunities for all displaced students. Corinthian will be hosting meetings at their facilities for students to learn about options for continuing their education. Information regarding the closure, and the meetings, can be found on www.cci.edu.
I was using GI Bill benefits; will I be responsible for paying any money back? No debts will be created against students because of the school closure. You will only have to repay benefits if you dropped one or more classes prior to the date on which the school closed.
What happens to the entitlement I used at this school? Unfortunately, there are no provisions in the law that would allow VA to restore entitlement that has been used attending one of the schools.
Carefully consider where you go to school. Please visit the GI Bill Comparison Tool (benefits.va.gov/gibill/comparison) to find an approved program of education to use the GI Bill. If you have Federal student loans be sure to utilize studentaid.ed.gov as a resource to plan your next step.
We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates on this page as appropriate. We advise all students that attended these schools to attend the informational sessions, if possible, to find out more about continuing your education. You may be contacted by a VA representative in the coming days.
