Kenzie Academy Offers Tuition Assistance for Displaced Harrison College Students


September 20, 2018, Indianapolis, IN - When Harrison College closed its doors last Friday, September 14th with very little warning, more than 1,300 students were displaced at the school’s nine campuses across Indiana, with three campuses in downtown Indianapolis alone.

Kenzie Academy, an education and apprenticeship program with its first campus in Indianapolis, is offering to come to the rescue. Chok Ooi, co-founder and CEO of Kenzie Academy, announced today that the school will offer tuition assistance of up to $12,000 to Harrison College students who are admitted into one of Kenzie’s three programs.

“This is the right thing to do to help these displaced Harrison College students,” said Ooi.  “It’s our mission to provide affordable education for students who want to launch their career in tech.”

Kenzie offers 1 and 2-year programs in Software Engineering, UX Engineering, and Digital Marketing. Students have opportunities for a paid apprenticeship as a capstone to their education. The apprenticeship program gives students access to real-world tech projects allowing them to build relationships with both local and global employers and leave Kenzie with projects in their portfolio to show potential employers. Students also gain access to a large mentor network, career prep, and job placement services to ensure graduates can enter the workforce and begin their new career in tech.

Harrison College offered 3 Information Technology tracks: Information Technology Associate of Applied Science, Technology Support Professional Diploma Program, and Electronics Engineering Technology. All 3 programs were offered in the Indianapolis - Downtown campus, as well as the shuttered school’s other campuses.

Kenzie invites interested Harrison College students to submit their applications or come in for a campus tour. Students can find information about each program and apply free here.

Cohorts start as early as October 9, 2018, following cohorts will begin January 15, 2019. Deadline for Harrison students to apply to be eligible for the tuition assistance program is December 1, 2018. Interested students are invited to take a campus tour and meet with a Community Manager to find a program that’s right for them.
