Interesting. But I don't think they'll be luring people back to college until their graduation rates are up, and their costs are down. Many people know that going deeply in debt for a college degree is a bad idea, and you're not going to convince them otherwise - they see the writing on the wall.

When a school like this closes, how does a student obtain their official transcripts when they want to move on to another degree?

Another school (under the same accreditor) takes over record keeping/Transcripts

I'm going to guess that it's gotten easier over time, and now you can just dump the database into an online transcript service and get them out that way (which they were probably doing already).  It's pretty effortless now to provide transcripts to people.

Yeah a lot of places are offloading their transcript services to third parties like Parchment already. I think even the National Clearing House offers transcript services for schools now.

When my husband applied to WGU last year, he had 3 CC transcripts, and all 3 schools were from some sort of transcript service.  When I applied to WVNCC (for the BOG AAS), I had to send 4 transcripts and all were from a transcript service.  I think between both of us and 7 schools, 4 used Credential Solutions, 2 used Student Clearinghouse, and 1 used Transcripts on Demand.  All were equally easy, fast, and cheap (maybe $2-$3), sent email updates each step of the way (ordering, sending, and receiving).  All were completed within a few business days.
