Another school is stepping up to help former Brightwood College students.

As KRIS has reported, Brightwood closed last week after losing its accreditation.

But the Texas-based College of Health Care Professions has announced on social media that it will start “assisting” former Brightwood students.

However, Steve Horn, CHCP’s vice president of marketing says it’s too premature to confirm that. But the school told us it’s ready to help.

“We do have folks that they’re ready to really understand what the individual student’s personal situation really is and how we can best help them and understand what we can do for them,” Horn said.

“Every situation is a little bit different. So what we do is we sit down with the student and find out just how many credits in are they in the program, how much do they have left to go, what is their financial aid status, is there aid still available and then we customize based on their situation what they’re trying to achieve.”

The College of Healthcare Professions doesn’t have a local campus. Brightwood students could take courses online, or move to one of their Texas campuses.
