ASA College (Potential Closure - No Current Educational Activity)

ASA College’s accreditor, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) has announced that the institution closed on February 24, 2023 and that its accreditation ceased on March 1, 2023. The United States Department of Education also considers ASA College closed as of February 24, 2023. Although the institution has not confirmed to NYSED that it intends to close, there has been no educational activity at the institution since February 24, 2023. Because of its accreditation status and additional concerns, ASA College is under review for its capacity to continue to have degree-conferring authority in New York State.

Former ASA College students are urged to pursue completion of their education at another institution. Below you will find information we believe will be helpful to former ASA College students. We will continue to update this webpage as more information becomes available. If you have questions or concerns about ASA College, please contact us at
