The Pittsburgh Career Institute in Pittsburgh will cease operations this week.
The for-profit college will close on Nov. 23, reports The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The U.S. Department of Education revoked the school's academic accreditation on Aug. 19. As part of the revocation, the school was barred from enrolling new students in its degree programs.
“It is with a heavy heart that after years of providing professional career training to hundreds of Pittsburghers with the pathway to well-paying, rewarding health care careers, PCI has made the very difficult decision to cease operations,” says Institute President Patti Yakshe.
The school has tried to find a way to continue operating but was unsuccessful.
Other schools are offering assistance to students wanting to finish their education, including South College, which has a campus in Cranberry Township., a suburban area north of Pittsburgh.
