Office of the President of Vantage College
January 19, 2017
It is with great regret that I must inform you that the Vantage College cannot continue to hold classes and will be closing as of January 19, 2017.
The U.S. Department of Education has been conducting a review of the College. No report has yet been issued in that review and consequently we have not been able to address any concerns that the Department might have. Nevertheless, despite this lack of fundamental due process, the Department just informed the College that, due to the existence of this review, the regular flow of federal student aid funds to the institution has been ended and the College has been placed on a reimbursement system, where funds will be delayed for 45 days or more. Unfortunately, the College has not been able to make alternative arrangements to cover this delay in funding.
The College is reviewing options for you to complete your academic programs at other post secondary institutions in the community, and we have identified several institutions that have comparable academic programs and may provide credit for coursework completed on a satisfactory academic basis at our school. Information on these other institutions will be published next week on our website.
The College will be making arrangements to maintain academic and financial aid records and we will provide any information that you and other institutions may request via our website. We have given notice of our closing to the U.S. Department of Education, our accrediting agency, the Council on Occupational Education, and the state licensing agency, the Texas Workforce Commission. If you wish to contact any of those agencies, contact information for those agencies appears in our catalog.
We understand that you may have questions and the Administration of the College will try to respond as promptly as possible to all questions. We suggest that you direct all questions to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and that you check our website periodically for updates on arrangements made with other institutions.
The process of mailing out academic transcripts for enrolled students will start next week, to the last known address on record. If your address has changed, please send a message to email@example.com with your updated address.
In closing, I want to again tell you how sorry I and the leadership of the College are that we have not been able to overcome our financial difficulty and keep the College open. We are very grateful for the opportunity we had to serve you and we wish you every success in the completion of your studies and the pursuit of your careers.
