A new wave of college closures is expected to begin this year.

Not only will colleges be closed because of Covid, though, it has turned the entire higher education world upside down. But many struggling colleges have been able to keep their doors open longer than expected, in part because of help from state and federal relief funding. Now, for many, those funding streams have run out and it’s time to face the inevitable.

Holy Names University in California and Cazenovia College in New York are among those who recently announced plans to close and reorient their students after the spring semester. They will join a list of 35 colleges that closed their sole or final campuses in 2021, and 48 more in 2022, according to an analysis of federal data by the Association of State Higher Education Executives.
