The state is investigating the sudden closing of the CDM Institute on Galesi Drive, NorthJersey.com reported Friday.
The school shut down this week without explanation, the website reported. Students said they found out about the closing when they went to the school Wednesday night and found the doors locked.
The 22-year-old Wayne school is part of a network of career schools in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. The school offers training in accounting, bookkeeping, office administration, and health care.
A phone number listed for the institute was still active Friday night but the school’s website was not working.
Students expressed their frustration on message boards Friday night. Some said they lost thousands of dollars in tuition.
“Now I am stuck with a $7,000 loan,” said one poster who was attending the school since November 2012. “I am unemployed, without a certificate and have to owe all of this money back.”
A representative from the institute could not be reached for comment.
