National Hispanic U. Halts Enrollment

January 28, 2014

Laureate Education, a large for-profit chain, bought the San Jose-based university in 2010, announcing plans for it to grow to 8,000 students, many of them attending online.

And last year the U.S. Department of Education withdrew federal financial eligibility for the university's liberal arts programs, straining its finances.
