Press Release


Harrison College

September 14, 2018

After 116 years serving Indiana, Ohio and North Carolina, Harrison College has made the difficult business decision to close operations effective Sunday, September 16, 2018, and for the The Chef’s Academy (TCA )Sunday, October 14, 2018 (the end of their current term).

We are working with transfer and teach-out partners including State governing bodies and our accreditors to ensure each student has a pathway to complete their education.

National American University (NAU), an HLC-accredited institution, is Harrison College’s preferred transfer institution within Indiana. Please note that Harrison College is working diligently with governing bodies to expand this list, including further teach-out* arrangements with NAU and other institutions.

For students in Ohio, we are working closely with the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges and Schools to identify transfer/teach-out partners.

For students in North Carolina, we will be working with nearby institutions for transfer options for our students.

For updates in the future, we will be adding information to the website to help students. We will be posting transfer options for each Harrison and TCA campus as well as information related to how to get your academic and financial transcripts.


Actively enrolled students as of 9-14-2018 will be emailed a copy of their Official Transcript once Summer 2018 term grades have been posted. Our goal is to complete this task no later than September 24, 2018.

For all graduates and formerly enrolled students, we are working to get all digital copies of Official Transcripts that we have available posted to Parchment to purchase, and to the State governing bodies as soon as possible after we send out the active student emails. Older, print records will also be provided to the State governing bodies as well.

Details of who to contact at those State offices will be coming soon.

National American University is standing by and able to talk to you now about your options. Eligible students will be able to transfer into the comparable program October 1, 2018. Please Visit Attend.National.Edu/Harrison-College
