WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) – The West Virginia Business College has decided to close its doors while in the midst of a legal battle over the school’s accreditation.
James Weir, the college’s general manager, said in an email Monday that declining enrollment for the July 2017 quarter made it financially impossible for the college to remain open.
News outlets report the Council for Community and Technical College Education declared the college would have to close by June 30 because of a lack of accreditation. However, a judge granted the school an immediate stay on the council’s orders last week.
School officials say all student information was given to West Virginia Junior College and Salem University.
