Everest Campuses Closing-- Estimated 300 Students Impacted--NEWS
The Everest College Bremerton, Seattle, Renton, and Vancouver campuses are closing. Zenith Education Group announced that students at these campuses will have the opportunity to attend other campuses, including Everest College Everett and Tacoma, as well as the Everest Institute Tigard campus in Oregon. Students will be able to complete their training at these consolidated campuses. Approximately 300 students are affected, according to Zenith, which acquired the campuses earlier this year from the now defunct Corinthian Colleges, Inc.
Students have two options:
Option 1: Students can transfer to one of the open schools to continue their training (depending on their program and schedule).
Option 2: Students can withdraw from school and receive a refund for all tuition and other fees they paid.
Seven-day deadline to decide: Students have seven days after they meet one-on-one with Everest Campus staff to decide between these two options.
Individual advising meetings. Everest staff are meeting one-on-one with students to discuss options. There is a possibility that students will receive subsidized transportation to help complete their training. More questions? Call Everest's Student Hotline below.
