Apollo Education Group, parent company of the University of Phoenix, plans to lay off 76 employees in Seattle next month, according to a state filing.
The Phoenix-based company, which runs for-profit, postsecondary schools, will close an office that housed mostly technology and some marketing workers.
Executives announced in January that the company would have to reduce staff and trim departments due to declining revenue from its flagship University of Phoenix campuses.
In early February, the company announced it sold itself to a group of investors for $1.1 billion and would become a private company.
