SEATTLE — Federal and state agencies are investigating a California company that runs six for-profit colleges in Western Washington.
The Seattle Times reports that Corinthian Colleges, which operates six Everest College campuses in the state, is facing allegations of preying on low-income students and falsifying job-placement rates.
The company is expected to close or sell the schools under an agreement being negotiated with the U.S. Department of Education.
The company has denied any wrongdoing, and says no school closures are imminent.
In 2012, about 3,000 students were enrolled in campuses in Seattle, Renton, Tacoma, Everett, Bremerton and Vancouver. The colleges offer classes for medical and dental assistants, massage therapists and pharmacy technicians.
The Department of Justice, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the state Attorney General’s office are among those investigating.
