Lon Morris College, a two-year institution in Jacksonville, Tex., will not hold classes this fall for the 100 students who were expected to enroll, the Associated Press reports. In a news release, administrators blamed the decision on the U.S. Department of Education’s determination that students at Lon Morris, which filed for bankruptcy last month, may not use federal financial aid there. The college, which has a history of financial and accreditation trouble, had tried to save money by furloughing nearly all its employees and reinstating its football team, a costly attempt to draw applicants. The college currently has a debt of more than $20-million.
