Officials at the financially struggling Mid-Continent University have decided to close the school on June 30.
Acting President Robert "Tom" Walden, who was appointed Saturday to replace interim president Ken Winters, said everyone at the school has been laid off due to a lack of finances. Walden said the school will remain open so that seniors can graduate thanks to faculty and staff who are volunteering their time.
The final day of classes is set for May 2 and graduation is May 10.
The school announced in February that financial woes might force it to close. The financial situation stemmed from the U.S. Department of Education's rejection of financial aid paperwork.
