Missour College, at 1421 S. Hanley Road in Brentwood, closed without notice to its students — who were months from graduation — earlier in November, according to KSDK.
The for-profit school announced on Nov. 2 around noon that it would be ceasing operations immediately. Students said everything was business as usual on Tuesday until around lunchtime.
Students studying to become a dental hygienist told KSDK they were on an accelerated 18 month program not offered anywhere else in the area, and the money and classroom experience will not count for anything in any area school.
“We’re all out $42,000. We’re unable to transfer our credits anywhere else,” student Katie Hinchcliff told KSDK.
