Heritage College Permanently Closes All 10 Campuses
OKLAHOMA CITY - Heritage College and Heritage Institute announced on Tuesday they are closing all 10 campuses across the nation, including its location in Oklahoma City.
Officials said the reason for the closures is that, "Heritage does not have the cash to continue to run its business."
Officials released the following statement,
“It is with great disappointment that we announce that Heritage College and Heritage Institute are permanently closing on November 1, 2016. The closure will affect all 10 campuses.
Heritage College educated students for health care careers for 30 years, and this is very difficult news for everyone affected particularly our students, teachers, and staff.
The reason for the campus closures is that Heritage does not have the cash to continue to run its business. Numerous factors contributed to the circumstances including declining student population and a continued, decreased demand for the services of for-profit schools. Heritage did not close due to wrongdoing or a forced closure by a regulatory body, and we did explore a range of options that would have enabled the campuses to remain open serving students. Unfortunately, the options were not viable and our efforts proved unsuccessful.
We thank our faculty, staff and, mostly, our students. They had the courage to pursue a new career path and we were honored to help them achieve their goals.”
The school’s Oklahoma City location was at Crossroads South, 7202 S I-35 Service Rd.
