REFILE-Corinthian gets $16 mln funding from U.S. Dept of Education

(Corrects company name in the headline)

June 23 (Reuters) - Corinthian Colleges Inc said it reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Education that would prevent the for-profit education provider from having a cash shortfall.

Corinthian said on Monday it would immediately receive $16 million in federal student aid funds earned through enrollments that will allow its students to continue their programs.

The college operator said last week that its ability to continue as a going concern was in jeopardy after the Department of Education extended the waiting period to draw down federal student aid funds.
