INDIANA (WANE) – With the news announced Tuesday that ITT will be shutting down academic operations, two area schools have offered an option to students looking to transfer.
ITT Technical Institute will permanently close more than 130 academic campuses in 38 states, effectively canceling the fall academic quarter and eliminating 8,000 jobs.
Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) in Marion will now accept up to 62 credit hours, and Trine University in Angola will accept 89 credit hours from students who attended ITT Tech.
“We would like to welcome all ITT Tech students who are interested in completing their degrees to contact us in order to get their ITT Tech transcripts officially evaluated,” Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing for Non-Residential Services at IWU, R. David Rose said.
IWU will accept credit transfers to any student who earned a grade of a C or higher for adult and online programs.
“We understand many students are anxious after ITT discontinued operations this week, and we want ITT students to know we will work with them to smoothly transfer the credits they have earned,” Dean of University’s College of Graduate and Professional Students at Trine, Craig Laker said.
Trine will accept credit transfers with no expiration.
