Lon Morris to hold fall classes

Posted: Updated:

Lon Morris College will be offering classes both on campus and online for the Fall 2012 semester.

Dawn Ragan of Bridgepoint Consulting, the Chief Restructuring Officer for Lon Morris College, says the college will have a full academic program offered to students this fall.

Although, not all of the same courses will be available to students that the college may have offered in the past.

No athletics programs and academic programs that catered to small groups of "core students" will be offered.

In addition, Ragan says the college has reduced tuition by a third, and will honor all federal financial aid and endowed scholarships.

Lon Morris has also been seeking a financial partner or financial institution to aid them in restructuring. Ragan says right now, there is no "firm" partner in place, and all options, including Tyler Junior College, are "on the table."

As for the three payrolls that Lon Morris missed earlier this year, Ragan says donations are going toward repaying employees, but bankruptcy proceedings will determine the final amount to be repaid.

Dean of Students Dave Hubbard tells KLTV 7 that the enrollment is expected to be smaller in Fall 2012, and that the school will no longer offer meals at a cafeteria on campus.

Students interested in attending Lon Morris this fall may register online beginning Thursday, or call the registration office to make an appointment.
