Students “Lost” as Corinthian Colleges Close

Some 16,000 students at Corinthian Colleges were searching for answers after the multi-state network of 28 for-profit colleges shut their doors with only weeks before the semester's end, NBC News reported. Corinthian told students of Heald College, Everest Collge and WyoTech College that administrators were "trying to arrange partnerships with other colleges and universities" to help students finish their courses. But in the meantime, students were forced to grapple with remaining student loan debt — or the possibility that their hard-earned educational credits won't transfer. "Right now, everybody's just lost," said Linda Cervantes, 28, a single mother of two young children who only needed two more weeks to complete her program as a pharmacy technician.
