LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Harrison College has been shut down permanently. Ten of the campuses in eight cities, including Lafayette, are closing their doors effective this Sunday. This is according to a press release on the Harrison College website.

According to the college's website, it was founded in Marion, Indiana, in 1902 as a business college, received national accreditation in 1980 and was purchased by Education Management Corporation in 1986.

The press release says, "We are working with transfer and teach-out partner including state governing bodies and our accreditors to ensure each student has a pathway to complete their education."

Sunday marks the end of the summer term for students. The Chef's Academy is the only campus staying open until October 14 because that's when the term ends.


National American University was chosen by Harrison as its preferred transfer institution within Indiana. Harrison says it will update its website in the future at Harrison.edu to help students. They will post transfer options as well as how to obtain your transcript among other things.
