The campus of Ashford University in Clinton has been sold. This week the owner, Bridgepoint Education, announced an agreement with a company called Clinton Catalyst LLC.

It will buy the campus for 1.6 million dollars, including the academic campus, Best Western Hotel, the South campus field, and Red House. 

And as part of the agreement, Ashford will lease the campus from Clinton Catalyst through the end of next year (Dec. 2016) to "ensure there's no impact to campus operations."
