U.S. District Judge Marcia Morales Howard denied Florida Coastal School of Law’s emergency motion for a restraining order that would have temporarily restored the school’s access to the Title IV federal student loan program.

Without access to the loan program, the school has said it will close this month.

“Last night Judge Howard issued her ruling in our challenge to the Department of Education. Unfortunately, she ruled against us. We are reviewing the opinion with counsel to assess options for next steps as we work diligently to support our students and staff,” said Peter Goplerud, president and dean of Florida Coastal, in an email Aug. 10.
