Corinthian CollegeAnother for-profit college is eying an expansion into the Indianapolis area. The publicly traded Corinthian Colleges Inc., based in Santa Ana, Calif., plans to take 40,000 square feet in the Heritage Park office park southeast of Interstates 465 and 69. The new campus, which will operate as Everest College, will be the second Indiana campus for Corinthian, which has a facility in Merrillville. Corinthian is one of the nation’s largest for-profit college operators, with more than 105,000 students at 110 campuses in the U.S. and Canada. Corinthian has asked the city for a variance to allow the campus to operate with 442 parking spaces, fewer than are required by planning guidelines. The company has said it will use about 20,000 square feet of its space for classrooms, and the other half for administrative functions. It promised no more than 400 students and faculty would be at the campus at 6666 E. 75th St. at any given time. (Image from Google Streetview)

    Apparently they have begun site clearing, any updates?
    • did you see this?!!?
      Hey - did you see this? Maybe you could work locally after all!!!
    • Another One?
      These outfits grow like topsy around here. Is there a lot of Fed $ in the air, or are people spending their Unemplmt. $ on classes to take up their time? What's the IBJ crystal ball tell us about this (pardon me)seemingly "cottage industry"?
    • Duh!
      I think you're looking at the site.
    • Students Beware
      Students beware! It's sad to see another one of these proprietary schools set up shop in Indy. These schools make false promises to uninformed students and parents and the coursework taken will not transfer to any legitimate college or university. I'd really like to see IBJ investigate these types of "schools."
      • Teacher
        Not entirely true High School Counselor. Some of these have very poor reputations. I previously taught an evening course for nursing students at a locally based proprietary college. I was pleased with the way they operated. It is a different than what would be offered at a traditional college or community college, but not bad. Job placement rates were quite good as well, which is among the most important end points to determine success for career colleges.

        Why don't you investigate further these schools, find out which ones have a good product, instead of giving bad advice to your students who will struggle with 4 year colleges.

        ProPublica and Marketplace (NPR) did an excellent series investigating for-profit educator University of Phoenix. http://bit.ly/656R9x
      • Seriously?

      1. Angela IS the best RD

      2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
