Delta Career Education Corporation, a privately held for-profit college company, is phasing out seven of its campuses. The company blamed the move on the unclear fate of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, a national accrediting agency which the Obama administration in December moved to terminate. ACICS oversees many for-profits.

A spokesman for Delta said the company stopped admitting new students at three campuses of its Miller-Motte Technical College, one Miller-Motte College campus and three campuses of the McCann School of Business & Technology. The affected campuses are located in North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Louisiana. The decision resulted from ACICS losing federal recognition, the spokesman said via email.
