Bramson ORT College in Forest Hills comes close to closure

Visits: 151

Earlier this year, Bramson ORT College was placed under heightened cash monitoring by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and was just weeks away from closing.

Although the school, with campuses in both Forest Hills and Bensonhurst, provided the additional documentation required to receive the necessary financial aid funding under the probationary period, it was reported that the DOE was unresponsive and nevertheless declined the school any financial aid payment.

In response to the school’s near closure, the Bramson ORT College administration contacted Congresswoman Grace Meng for support.

After meeting with DOE officials, Meng said she managed to work out a plan to renew financial aid payments. As a result, DOE has since made its first disbursement of $175,000 and the school now expects they will soon receive the total balance of $980,000.

“With the school remaining open and this issue now behind it, the institution can move forward to continue the important work it does in educating New York students,” Meng said. [FHT]
