SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Three university students are suing an art and design school scheduled for closing and its parent company.

The lawsuit filed Thursday cites fraud and breach of contract after Santa Fe University of Art and Design decided to closing following the spring 2018 semester.

The school’s closure was announced mid-April. Santa Fe attorney Ben Allison who represents the students says the action by the school shows their interest in profit over students. The lawsuit states that Laureate Education Inc., which owns the school, intentionally left students and faculty in a vulnerable position.

SFUAD spokeswoman Rachael Lighty could not comment on legal matters, but says a number of transfer agreements are in place.

It is unclear what amount in compensation for damages the lawsuit seeks.
