Owensboro-Based Daymar Seeks to Close Louisville Classroms

Career College Central Summary:

  • The Courier-Journal reports Daymar has submitted a closure plan to its accrediting body that would lead to the shuttering of its classrooms, and transfer most of its 89 Louisville-area students to other schools, or Daymar’s online program.
  • Daymar runs more than a dozen campuses in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio, with around 2,000 students.
  • Daymar has recently closed operations in Scottsville and the western Kentucky town of Clinton, and has sold–or is trying to sell–buildings in Owensboro and Louisville.
  • Daymar is one of several for-profit college operations that face a lawsuit by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway that alleges the schools have violated the state’s Consumer Protection Act by falsely claiming that credits could be transferred to other universities.
  • Daymar’s director of government relations was quoted in the paper as saying the closing of the Louisville facility is a “right-sizing” based on declining enrollment, with no further closures currently planned.
