Students who attended the now-closed Corinthian Colleges will meet with state officials for help getting reimbursed for tuition and obtaining transcripts.


The Santa Ana, California-based company closed all of its remaining 28 ground campuses, displacing 16,000 students on Monday, less than two weeks after the U.S. Department of Education announced it was fining the institution $30 million for misrepresentation.


The closed colleges include Heald campuses in California, Hawaii and Oregon, as well as Everest and WyoTech schools.


The California Department of Consumer Affairs will be on hand Tuesday at 13 Everest and WyoTech locations to advise students about their options.


Corinthian was one of the country’s largest for-profit educational institutions. It collapsed last summer amid a cash shortage and fraud allegations.
