For-profit college is moving to online-only instruction
After years of low graduation rates, Stevens-Henager College will close its campus in Idaho Falls as the school moves toward online-only classes.
Felicia Wright, executive director of the Idaho Falls campus, said the college would continue to offer classes for the students currently enrolled for degrees but would stop admitting any new students outside of the online programs. There are 60 students currently enrolled in the Idaho Falls campus located at Snake River Landing and the switchover will occur over the next two or three years.
The for-profit Stevens-Henager College is managed by the Center for Excellence in Higher Education, a Utah-based company that also oversees Independence University and CollegeAmerica. Stevens-Henager currently has five campus locations in Utah, one in Boise and one in Idaho Falls, which also qualifies as a branch of CollegeAmerica in Flagstaff, Ariz.
