The Anthem Institute has filed WARN notices that it will be terminating operations at all four of its New Jersey locations, including Cherry Hill, Jersey City, North Brunswick and Parsippany.

In total, 163 jobs will be affected.

Anthem Institute provides post-secondary education in health care and technical fields.

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.

A representative for the Institute declined to comment.

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN, Act, which was enacted in 1988, requires most businesses with 100 or more employees to provide a notification in advance of 60 days involving any mass layoffs.

Many of us are very upset that the school has not communicated anything but maybe's or possibable's no real plan no contingency plan no advice what to do and only on the last day did they bring in other schools to hep us, none of which were prepared to answer our questions. A very poor way to run business, and the owners still operate a business so look at them. We were again told we were brought out on Thursday but doors will close for a period of a few weeks to reorganize, I just want to graduate thats all.

All this article talks about is the employee layoff......how about all of the students who have taken out college loans and committed themselves to completing their program? Are they still expected to pay off the loans after not receiving their certification? Is Anthem trying to find suitable locations for some of their courses to be completed? Do they care about their students who have planned out their future based on courses they are taking? Or do they just care about their money? It's putting a lot of students in a very bad situation. It would be nice to know if Anthem is doing all they can to help their students through this transition.
