The FBI and the U.S. Department of Education raided all three ACT College campuses in Virginia Friday, News4’s Erika Gonzalez reported.

Agents arrived at the Manassas campus about 3 p.m. They filled dozens of boxes and left Friday evening.

The school shut down last week. When students arrived for classes April 3, they found a letter from college President Jeff Moore apologizing for the shutdown and blaming it on the Department of Education for withholding funds from the college, which followed an audit that uncovered problems at the school.

Some students were just two weeks from graduation.

ACT, which also has campuses in Arlington and Alexandria, trained students to be dental and medical assistants and radiologists for 25 years.
