One local college will be helping students left stranded after Career Point college announced they were shutting down.

The technical institute --based out of San Antonio-- was forced to close early last month after funding restrictions imposed by the Department of Education.

According to officials, the school discovered employees violated rules related to student aid funds. The Coastal Bend College will be joining several others across the state to help nursing students finish their degrees --many of which were only weeks away from completing.

Applications for the Spring 2017 semester for LVN and LVN-RN classes are open. The deadline to apply is Friday, Decemeber 9th.
