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.
