Thread regarding Art Institutes layoffs

List of Art Institutes (AI) Schools Closing in 2018

Hello - do you have a list that will show what AI schools will be closing in 2018.

I'd like to see:

  • Campus location

  • Number of employees laid off

  • Date for closure

  • Number of students affected

Not sure if you have any data that can be used in an analysis, but I'd appreciate if you provide a list

Tampa is a satellite campus for Miami. Fort Lauderdale has different accreditation. Campuses can never combine. One would have to close and transfer students. AIFL Just went through ACICS 5 year renewal but is transitioning to regional accreditation in next few months as detailed to faculty and staff at last two meetings. ACICS is still alive and supported by DOE head. Probably not going anywhere but most campuses are exiting. Miami is SACS. They were removed from probation in December 2017. No word on closing of either campus. Numbers low but summer starts this coming week and faculty schedules for summer.

Many of these closed Ai schools were ACICS (ACICS requires an application and payment for accreditation, they are not like Western, Middle States or SACS):

Article on ACICS colleges losing federal financial aid:

https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/education-postsecondary/news/2017/06/06/433529/whats-acics-colleges/

"ACICS willingly accredited predatory schools that left students across the country mired in debt and without the quality education they were promised."

I’m sure all of ILIA and Colorado will go given their accreditation woes.

@nkw agree on Tampa, it's a done deal (in my book)

As for Florida, fully expect Tampa to go. It's already a branch campus of Miami. Curious as to Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Lots of crossover in program majors and faculty but different accreditations (SACS vs. ACICS)
