San Jose's Bryman College Unexpectedly Shuts Down, Kicks Students Off Campus

Bryman College in San Jose promises good training for a future in the medical field.

But on Monday those dreams were put on hold as the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office put up "No Trespassing" signs on each classroom and office door. The signs prompted students to ask teachers if the campus was being shut down.

"We have no idea. We're in a computer class. A guy came in, excused our teacher," student Amanda Caderia said. "She came back in and was like, 'You know what, guys. You're right the school is being closed.'"

Dozens of students at the vocational school were told they had one hour on Monday afternoon to pack up their things and get out of the campus.

A locksmith also reported to the campus and changed the locks on all 30 doors at the college. The locksmith said it was part of a landlord-tenant dispute.

One of the notices posted said "Eviction Restoration Notice," leading students to speculate what's happening.

Bryman College is run by BioHealth College, which bought the campus from Everest last year.

Students said they are unsure of what to do if the college shuts down.

"Not all schools are going to be able to take Bryman College credits," Caderia said. "So I might get half. I might get none. I'd have to start all over again."

Caderia, who is training to be a medical assistant, paid $16,000 for an eight-month program and was scheduled to graduate in two months.

Calls to the school were not returned.
