ASA College seemed like Jacaly Muranelli’s ticket to a better life – and the government was helping her pay for it.
And it wouldn’t cost her anything upfront, since New York State and the federal government had awarded her a significant amount of aid.
But the dream didn’t last. In November, ASA College lost its accreditation after its accreditor said it had failed to provide “a quality student learning experience.” The federal education department tightened the screws on funding. Professors, no longer being paid, started canceling class. Muranelli went down to the Manhattan campus and found it shuttered.
