Lebanon College in Lebanon New Hampshire has canceled its classes for the fall semester in what the president said is likely the first step toward closing the school.

Union Institute and University is closing its Montpelier operations and consolidating its Vermont footprint in Brattleboro.

The move, to be completed by June, comes as the four-year liberal arts school reduces its weekend residency programs and relies more on online classes.

The Cincinnati-based school has two campuses in California, one in Florida and will go from two to one in Vermont.
