Art Institute California, Argosy U. to Close in Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO — The Bay Area campuses of the Art Institute of California and Argosy University will close at the end of the year, according to the organization that owns them, Dream Center Education Holdings, LLC.

“After a complete and thorough examination of the three education systems in the DCEH network to ensure they are meeting the needs of today’s learners, we did not see demand growth for courses at these campuses,” Anne Dean, a spokeswoman for Dream Center Education Holdings, said in an email Tuesday. “We made the decision to cease enrollments for a number of schools within The Art Institutes, Argosy University and South University systems.”

The Art Institute’s San Francisco campus is no longer accepting applicants, according to its website, which redirects potential students to other locations in Los Angeles, San Diego or its online division. Argosy University posted a similar message on its website about its Alameda campus.
