Private college’s abrupt closure leaves students with “absolutely nothing”

May 24, 2019

CBC has learned that Atlantica College, a for-profit institution in Saint John that offered a 3D animation program, abruptly closed this week. According to CBC, the college’s $34K tuition included a computer station that students were to keep, but they were asked to sign a release last week stating that the equipment was financed by Windsor Holdings. When students arrived on campus earlier this week, all the equipment was gone. Jeffrey Peterson, Director and Operations Manager for Windsor Holdings, said that Atlantica owed them over $30K. New Brunswick’s Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour said it was aware of the situation and is collecting information on the school's closure. CBC (NB)
