Closed School Guide

ACCSC is responsible for ensuring that a school is operating in compliance with our standards, policies, and procedures and works with any ACCSC-accredited member school that will be closing to provide accreditation during a teach-out.

U.S. Department of Education's Closed School Guide For Students 

The U.S. Department of Education has prepared a guide to help students sort out some of the options that are available for students attending a school that will be closing, and to help students take the necessary steps to continue their education. This guide includes information on finding a teach-out or transfer program, financing, federal aid, academic records, and tuition recovery (if applicable to your state). The U.S. Department of Education, Accrediting Bodies, State Licensing Agencies, and Guarantee Agencies may assist you with various aspects of the process.

Additionally, the U.S. Department of Education issued a memorandum for students who may be eligible for a loan discharge given a school's closure.
