NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) -- The Education Corporation of America has announced it's shutting down colleges nationwide this week, affecting students in Nashville.

The ECA founded Brightwood College in October 2015, and one of those campuses are located at 750 Envious Lane.

The announcement came as a shock on Wednesday when students learned that schools all over the country will be closing their doors this Friday, according to WTVC.

Nashville State Community College has offered to work with Brightwood students who are impacted by the recent closing.

“We will evaluate potential coursework transfer one student at a time and provide individual academic advising to help those affected by closing,” said Bryan Thomas, Associate Vice President for Extended Campuses at Nashville State. “With six campus locations across Middle Tennessee, we are uniquely positioned to work with interested Brightwood College students.”

If you'd like to speak with NSCC, email Bryan Thomas at or 615-353-3348, or the Office of Admissions directly for help in the process. That can be done in person at any campus location, by phone at 615-353-3215, or by email at
