SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A company that operated five health care career colleges in California has abruptly closed its campuses 10 days after filing for bankruptcy.

The San Jose Mercury News reported that Biohealth College in San Jose and the Bryman Colleges in San Jose, Hayward, San Francisco and Los Angeles together enrolled about 280 students whose course credits may now be worthless.

But California Department of Consumer Affairs spokesman Russ Heimerich, whose agency oversees for-profit colleges, says the students won't have to repay any federal loans they may have taken out to finance their educations and may be eligible for tuition refunds from the state.

The closure of the schools comes a month after Corinthian Colleges, based in Santa Ana, announced that it plans to sell or close dozens of its Heald College, Everest College and WyoTech programs in 11 states.
