Attorney General Conway to Assist Students Following Mid-Continent Closure

midcontinent uScreenshot via Mid-Continent UniversityMAYFIELD, Ky. (4/18/14) — Mid-Continent University, a private, non-profit school operating in Mayfield, announced that it would be laying off employees immediately and shutting down operations by June 30.

The school has about 2,000 students enrolled online, at its campus in West Kentucky and at other locations around the state.

"My office is closely monitoring this situation and is working with the Kentucky Council on Post Secondary Education, U.S. Department of Education and MCU's accreditation arm, the Southern Association for Colleges and Schools to ensure that every effort is made for students to graduate or finish out the semester on May 10," General Conway said. "If the school cannot meet its obligations to students, my Consumer Protection Division will work with students who may have concerns about the transfer of their credits to other institutions, their legal rights and student loans."

Attorney General Conway also directed staff to send letters to administrators with MCU informing them that they have an affirmative obligation to maintain all records during dissolution and that they are subject to criminal liability for the intentional destruction of any records.

The Office of the Attorney General has set up a website to assist students, and the website will be updated with the latest information available for students.

For more information, visit Office of the Attorney General. A dedicated hotline, (502) 696-5485, and a Facebook Page has also been set up for students. Students may also send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
