According to information filed with the New Jersey Department of Labor, the affected jobs include adjunct professors and administrative staff at all locations. The WARN information submitted to the Department of Labor by the company cites “termination of operations,” with “financial difficulties” as the reason.

The filing comes after Anthem announced it will be closing other campuses, including ones in Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin.

Anthem Institute is a division of Anthem Education and comprises five locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Anthem issued a WARN notice for its Springfield, Pennsylvania, location, as well.

Anthem’s layoffs are scheduled to take effect September 15.
