In 1929, the school was sold to the Correll and Kamprath families and was relocated to 24 South Seventh Street. The school moved again in 1979 to the Chamber of Commerce Building at 11 South Fifth Street. ITT Educational Services, Inc. purchased the school in 1969. In 1988 Terry Myhre purchased the school from ITT and in 1993 relocated it to the current location in Richfield, MN. In 1989 the first branch campus was opened in Brooklyn Center.
