CollegeAmerica and the Nonprofit Center for Excellence in Higher Education Pledge to Meet the Demand for Online Programs in Wyoming

Wyoming’s rugged and remote nature is what attracts people to the region. That remote nature also creates challenges for college students who travel long distances to classes each day. Convenient, flexible online programs are increasingly the preferred choice for many of CollegeAmerica’s Cheyenne students. Our online program enrollments are growing fast, while classroom enrollments have contracted.

 

As a result, we will no longer accept new on-campus enrollments in Cheyenne, but will instead support the high demand for accredited online programs. The Center for Excellence in Higher Education, Inc. (“CEHE”), which is the parent of our nonprofit group of colleges that includes CollegeAmerica’s Cheyenne campus, has announced that our company will invest in the increased demand for CEHE’s growing online institution, Independence University.

 

We are thankful for the support of the Cheyenne community over the years, and we plan to continue to provide quality online degree programs through Independence University to help students achieve their career dreams.

 

If you have questions about the Cheyenne campus, please refer to the links below. If you would like to view a list of Independence University’s healthcare, business, technology and graphic arts degree programs, visit www.Independence.edu.

STUDENT FAQ

On Thursday, February 16, 2017, the Center for Excellence in Higher Education, Inc. (“CEHE”) nonprofit group of colleges announced that we will no longer enroll new students at the CollegeAmerica campus in Cheyenne, Wyoming. All of the currently enrolled students at Cheyenne will be given several options to complete their degree programs including being taught out or transferring to CollegeAmerica’s affiliated institution, Independence University.

 

What caused the change?

Increased demand for CEHE’s growing online institution, Independence University, has caused campus-based enrollments to decline. Wyoming’s rural students increasingly favor the flexibility and convenience of online degrees without the drive time.

Does this affect other CollegeAmerica campuses?

No. Only the Cheyenne campus is no longer accepting new enrollments. All other CollegeAmerica and CEHE campuses are not affected in any way.

Is this a result of accreditation or regulatory agencies?

No. The decision to cease enrolling new students at the Cheyenne campus was not directed in any way by our accreditor, or the U.S. Department of Education, or any other governmental or regulatory agency. The decision was based entirely on the lack of demand for classroom-based education in Cheyenne and an increase in online enrollments at CollegeAmerica’s affiliated University, Independence University (IU).

What are the educational options that are being presented to students?

Each of the students have unique circumstances and will be assisted individually to create a path to a degree that fits their needs. All of the currently enrolled students at Cheyenne will be given several options to complete their degree programs – including being taught out or transferring to Independence University.

Will I have to pay additional tuition or fees?

No student will pay anything more than what they contracted for on their current campus enrollment agreement.

How can I view my academic and financial records?

Students can continue to access their records on the student portal.

How do I request a copy of my official transcript?

For transcripts for current and past students and graduates, send a request to CheyenneTranscript@collegeamerica.edu and include your name and phone number. Include “transcript request” in the subject line.

I recently graduated, so how do I receive my diploma?

All recent graduate diplomas have been processed and will be mailed to each graduate.

Are career services still available to graduates of the Cheyenne campus?

Yes. For information about career services, send an email with your name, phone number to CheyenneCareerServices@collegeamerica.edu so we can assist you with your needs.
