Mid-Continent hopes to return to life

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — A shuttered Kentucky college is hoping to collect $11.7 million in student tuition payments and return to operations as a Bible college.

Officials with Mid-Continent University say the payments along with $200,000 received from a trust could put the school and its 12 employees back on track.

The Paducah Sun reported (http://bit.ly/10ExoRj ) that details about the plans to reopen the school surfaced during a bankruptcy hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Paducah.

Mid-Continent closed its doors in June and filed for bankruptcy protection in September. The shutdown came after several misfiled rounds of paperwork led the U.S. Department of Education to cut off financial aid. This spring, the DOE informed the college that it still had not supplied the needed records.
