SUDBURY – Cambrian College has pledged to provide whatever assistance it can to students affected by the closure of Everest College.
Last week, the province pulled the operating license for all of Everest’s campuses, including the one in Sudbury. Cambrian has since been in regular contact with Everest College and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to offer our support regarding training completion, and will offer assistance to Everest students if and when needed.
Cambrian understands and empathizes with the stressful situation that Everest students find themselves in, but urges them to follow the defined process that has been established by the Ministry through its Training Completion Assurance Fund. The Fund is set up to help students in the event of the closure of registered private career colleges.
Those impacted by the closure may get support to complete their training at another institution, if available, or receive a refund. Working through the Fund process will ensure that students’ investment in their education is protected.
Everest students looking for information about the closure or completing their schooling should contact the special Ministry hotline that has been set up at 1-866-330-3395.
