"We are not closing. We have a program we are continuing here. It is our Medical Education program. It is very successful. It is a program for people who are planning to attend Ross. It is a review and preparatory program. It's been here for a couple semesters and we will be adding to its enrollment."
"Ross is going to stay open. We are staying here and we will have some faculty and staff here continuously. Ross is not closing, it is just that we've taken a piece of the program and shifted it back to Dominica until we get the California approval."
"We've just agreed to a three-year extension in the Seahorse Plaza. We did that because when we originally did the lease it was more short-term because we thought we might be building that new campus more quickly. Now that we've had to delay things a little bit it just made sense given everything we've invested in here, to extend the lease here, and then to continue in the long-term to build out at our campus as we've always planned.
