College for working women faces closure over deficit of $250,000

The Urban College of Boston, a two-year school that educates working women from low-income and immigrant backgrounds, is on the verge of closing amid deep financial troubles and a scuttled alliance with Endicott College.

Urban College, located on Tremont Street, will notify its 600 students this week that fall classes could be canceled, although leaders said they remain hopeful that another college or nonprofit group, along with private donors, will step forward to close a relatively modest deficit of about $250,000.
