Knoxville College plans to stop teaching classes this fall

Knoxville College, a historically black college in Mechanicsville, Tennessee, announced to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission its plans to suspend fall classes.

An advisory committee recommended the commission suspend the college’s authorization to operate, so it will be unable to recruit, enroll or teach students.

The decision to suspend classes is likely associated with the school’s heavy debt, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.

The college currently has 11 students enrolled, and the state is working to ensure that current students are aware of their options.
