The University of Indianapolis announced on Wednesday that it would shut down its campus in Athens this year because economic conditions in Greece had made it difficult to uphold “the high standards of the university and the expectations of our accrediting agency.”
Students will no longer be admitted to all but one degree program, and classes will cease on August 31. The university will continue to offer an M.B.A. degree to students from Saudi Arabia on a contract basis. Current students on the Athens campus who have not completed their degree programs have several options, including transferring to the Indianapolis campus, transferring to another institution, or finishing their degree online.
The university drew criticism six years ago for its supervision of the Athens campus, but said this week’s decision stemmed from the impact on the campus of Greece’s worsening economy.Return to Top
