Corinthian Colleges: Information on Everest, Heald, and WyoTech Locations

On July 3, 2014, Corinthian Colleges, the parent company of the Everest Institute, Everest and Heald Colleges, and WyoTech Technical Schools, reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Education on a transition plan to protect and address the needs of its affected students by providing an opportunity for students to complete their course of study or in some instances to receive a refund of tuition and other charges paid by students. The agreement took effect July 8, 2014.

The agreement outlines a plan to help enrolled students continue their studies with minimal disruption.

On Nov. 20, 2014, Zenith Education Group, ECMC’s newly-formed nonprofit education entity, announced that it planned to purchase more than 50 Everest and WyoTech campuses. For more information on the acquisition proposal from November 2014, review the U.S. Department of Education's press release.

On Feb. 3, 2015, Zenith Education Group announced that it had finalized its acquisition of more than 50 Everest and WyoTech campuses from Corinthian Colleges, Inc., and subsequently transitioned them from for-profit to nonprofit status. In addition, Zenith will be teaching out 12 of Corinthian College’s other locations. View the lists of schools that Zenith purchased and will continue to operate and schools whose programs of study are being taught out.

We have also provided a list of frequently asked questions to assist you. For more information on the acquisition, view the Zenith Education Group press release, the Department of Education's announcement, and the list of conduct provisions under which Zenith will operate.
