TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - State officials say thousands of New Jersey residents who attended schools operated by Corinthian Colleges can seek to have their federal student loans cancelled.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino made the announcement Monday. He says letters have been sent to residents who enrolled in Everest Institute, Everest College, Everest University, Heald College and Wyotech.

Porrino says any canceled loans would include refunds on any payments made.

Corinthian Colleges abruptly ceased operations in 2015. Federal education officials then determined Corinthian misrepresented the job placement record of its graduates between 2010 and 2014.

Porrino says about 2,200 New Jersey residents are eligible to have their loans cancelled.
