  • George Mason University RAK Campus (GMU-RAK or GMURAK) will close in May 2009 due to "budget and control" issues according to a GMU statement. Reportedly, EdRak, the funding partner, wanted to reduce funding by 50% and change the reporting structure in a way that might not have been acceptable to the US accrediting body.
  • Student numbers unknown but the university started with about 40 students.
  • GMU will assist students with transfers to GMU main campus in Virginia, USA, or to another university in the area. Bolton University RAK has apparently offered to assist.
