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 information to help students sort out some of the options that are available for students attending a school that will be closing. If your school closes while you're enrolled or soon after you withdraw, you may be eligible for discharge of your federal student loan. Loan discharge is the removal of your obligation to repay your loan under certain circumstances. There are certain eligibility requirements to qualify for a closed school loan discharge; you must apply to get a discharge. It's important for you to obtain your academic and financial aid records if your school closes, since you might need those records if you plan to attend another school or want your student loans discharged.
