University ends Greece program amid turmoil

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Economic turmoil in Greece has forced the University of Indianapolis to close its undergraduate program in Athens.

The university announced Wednesday it was no longer accepting students to Indianapolis Athens College and that all undergraduate courses and most graduate courses will end Aug. 31, WISH-TV reported.

A graduate program for students from Saudi Arabia is likely to continue.

University officials say affected students can take online courses or transfer to the Indianapolis campus.

Greece is in its sixth year of recession. It has been locked out of international bond markets since 2010 and its economy has been kept afloat by rescue loans from European partners and the International Monetary Fund in exchange for harsh austerity measures.
