Argosy University Receivership Status

February 25, 2019

The Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) is aware of the “receivership” status of the Argosy University campuses in Georgia:

Atlanta -  980 Hammond Drive, Building 2, Suite 100, Atlanta, GA 30328

Online (GA students only)- 333 City BLVD West, Suite 1810, Orange County, CA 92868

 

Receivership is a process where a company is placed under a court’s protection while it settles its financial affairs without the threat of its assets diminishing. A key component of the process is the appointment of a receiver whose primary responsibility is to stabilize the company and maximize its value. The receivership process gives companies the opportunity to chart a new course while protecting all of its stakeholders and its assets.

Once appointed, the receiver acts as the key negotiator and financial manager for the company. The receiver’s goal is to ensure that all of the company’s financial obligations are practical, fiscally sound, and in the best interests of the company and its stakeholders. Ultimately, any decision that the receiver makes must be approved by the court overseeing the receivership. The court will apply principles of equity to ensure that the process is fair and orderly.
