INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Harrison College says it's closing all of its campuses in Indiana, Ohio and North Carolina.

The private, for-profit, Indianapolis-based college said Friday most operations will close effective Sunday. Its program known as the Chef's Academy will close at the end of the current term on Oct. 14.

Harrison board chairman Craig F. Pfannenstiehl cited declining student enrollment and financial pressure for the closure.

Harrison says it is working with other schools and state governing bodies "to ensure each student has a pathway to complete their education."

Harrison College, formerly Indiana Business College, opened in 1902. Its website says it was purchased by Education Management Corp. in 1986.
