TULSA -- Brown Mackie College in Tulsa announced Saturday that the school is no longer accepting new students.

On their website Saturday, the college said current students will have access to more information. Currently, 400 students are enrolled at the college in Tulsa.

WRTV in Indianapolis spoke with a Brown Mackie spokesman, Bob Greenlee, who said the decision was made by Education Management Corporation, which owns Brown Mackie College and the Art Institutes, based on "regional and program demand."

"Education Management Corporation has made the decision to not accept new enrollments into programs at 22 locations of the Brown Mackie College system of schools…" Greenlee said in a written statement.

Brown Mackie says it will work with students to transfer them to other colleges before they close in two years.

Brown Mackie is a private, for-profit college with 28 campuses nationwide.

According to WRTV, education Management Corporation reached a $95.5 million settlement with the federal government in November of last year over claims it violated federal and state False Claims Act provisions.
