SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- After being forced to shut down and leaving students with the tab -- the Academy of Nursing faced more trouble this week.

The State Division of Consumer Protection filed a suit against the academy for their use of student-tuition checks. They claim the school use the checks far in advance of the three months' worth of payments allowed by the state pay-as-you-go law.

C-P-A Director Francine Giani told the Deseret Morning News at least 92 students in Utah are owed as much as two-point-five (M)million dollars, money they paid the academy up front in lieu of services.

The division is requesting a 90-thousand dollar fine for "deceptive acts and practices" at the school by academy founders Aaron and Mark Hansen.

The school was officially closed in February.
