Brightwood College

A troubled chain of for-profit colleges has closed abruptly in dozens of locations nationwide, after its accrediting agency suspended approval.

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- After thousands of students were caught unaware with the closing of Brightwood College, Northwest Career College said it would open its doors to Brightwood students to complete their education.

Students who were studying medical assisting, medical administrative assisting, medical billing and coding or pharmacy technician will be able to finish their degrees at Northwest Career, the school said. 

Some credits may be transferable and staff with Northwest have met with the director of Brightwood to ease the transition, the college said. Northwest's admissions and financial aid teams planned to meet with students next week to discuss how the students can continue their education.
