State officials are encouraging current and former students of Argosy University Hawaii to obtain their records from the institution immediately and attend a school transfer fair tomorrow.

This follows an announcement by the university that it may close on Friday, the state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affaris said in a news release today.

The academic and financial records may be needed in order for students to get financial aid, loan forgiveness or otherwise continue their education, the department said.

In January, Dream Center Education Holdings, which owns Argosy Hawaii, notified students that it filed for receivership in federal court. 

Tomorrow, students can attend the school transfer fair from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Argosy campus, 1001 Bishop St., Suite 400. Other post-secondary institutions have been invited to attend the fair and discuss options with students seeking to continue their education. 

DCCA also posted a webpage with information and updates on Argosy Hawaii's status. Students facing closure of the school can also view a resource guide on topics like obtaining records. Applications and information on federal loan discharges are also available online.
