Dive Brief: 
  • The North Coast College, a for-profit in Ohio, plans to close at the end of August after years of financial struggles and accreditation issues.
  • In a letter posted to North Coast’s website, President Milan Milasinovic said the college will shutter Aug. 30 after 58 years in business.
  • “The decision to close the college comes after careful consideration of various factors, including shifts in educational landscapes and evolving community needs,” Milasinovic said.
