Marian Court College, a small institution in Massachusetts, will close because of “insurmountable financial challenges,” The Daily Item reports. The college’s president, Denise Hammon, said declining enrollment had helped lead to the decision.
Marian Court students affected by the closure will be able to enroll at nearby Salem State University. As of 2013, Marian Court enrolled about 250 undergraduates.
The college last month awarded its first four-year degrees ever. It was founded as a two-year college in 1964.
