Gibbs College was a private for-profit institution of higher learning based in the United States of America, founded by Katharine Gibbs. As the Providence School in Rhode Island, it was founded in 1911 as an institution for the career education of young women. A few years later, the institution expanded with satellite campuses in Boston and New York and was renamed for its founder. It specializes in education in industries such as design, business administration, computer technology, criminal justice, and health care. The college is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. It does not have regional accreditation; thus, most regionally accredited or traditional universities and colleges are reluctant to accept its credits for transfer and many do not recognize its undergraduate degrees for entry into graduate programs. In 1997, The Career Education Corporation (CEC) acquired the Gibbs Group. For-profit colleges owned by CEC enroll nearly 100,000 students at more than 80 locations in the United States, Canada, England, France, and the United Arab Emirates.
