For-Profit School in Colorado Will Close

Colorado Heights University in Denver will close in next year, citing the federal banishment of the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) and falling enrollment as the primary reasons for its demise.

The non-profit institution serving just over 500 students with specialties in business and liberal arts was a part of the ACICS, which is facing heavy scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Education over its alleged lack of review of for-profit member schools — though the ACICS has appealed the department’s latest decision.
