Miller-Motte Technical College in Roanoke, Lynchburg stop enrollment

ROANOKE, Va. – Both Virginia locations of Miller-Motte Technical College in Roanoke and Lynchburg are no longer accepting new students.

This message is available on the websites for both respective campuses:

"We are no longer enrolling for this campus. Please see our other locations and online options.

At this time, neither location is closed, but both locations are expected to be closed soon, according to a representative with the college.

Both the Clarksville, Tennessee, and Greenville, North Carolina, campuses have the same message on their websites.

Miller-Motte sent WSLS 10 this statement regarding the two campuses:

On Thursday, August 31, 2017, students, staff and faculty were informed that Miller Motte Technical College will not be accepting or enrolling new students at our Roanoke and Lynchburg, VA locations. This decision is a result of the campus’s accreditor, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) losing federal recognition. This decision is effective immediately.

Current coursework and instruction for all students presently enrolled at the Roanoke and Lynchburg campuses will continue until their courses have been completed. We will also assist all students in transferring to other schools if they choose to continue their education and training elsewhere.

This was a difficult but necessary decision. We are committed to helping our students complete their coursework or transition to complete their certification or degree at other, area schools.

We have informed students who have enrolled for the first time for any of the College’s upcoming start of classes that we will not be accepting new students and we will refund any deposits they may have made for tuition.

Stay with WSLS 10 for more on this developing story.
