"I was there last night late, working on some stuff, and IT came in and told me they were doing major work in there and that I had to leave," said McGuire-Oursien.

"Today, we went in and everything was gone. We couldn't get a hold of anybody from the school. The teachers didn't know what was going on. The building managers didn't know what was going on."

The letter was signed by Jeffrey Peterson, director and operations manager for Windsor Holdings.

It goes on to say: "In regards to the computers that were removed from the premises, we have initiated a police action in this matter and we are awaiting further word from them."

Provincial officials to meet with students

On Atlantica's website, under "frequently asked questions," the college says it is registered with the Province of New Brunswick under the Private Occupational Training Act and that all students pay a protection fee as part of their registration.

The college says that money goes to the province "like an insurance policy" and is designed to "protect students financially" so that if the school should close, the department would find a suitable replacement so the students can complete their education.

The Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour said it was aware of the situation and is collecting information on the school's closure.

"Students are being contacted by the department who will meet with them in person by the end of the week to inform them of their rights under the Private Occupational Training Act," said Sarah Bustard in an email.

McGuire-Oursien said there were seven other students in her program, and she knew three others who had graduated but had yet to receive their diplomas.

"My whole world has been ripped right out of me in a matter of hours," she said.

"I planned on going to Vancouver or Montreal to go and work in a studio. This leaves me with absolutely nothing."

"I don't know what any of us are going to do."
