Several higher education groups will hold information sessions for ITT Technical Students, who were displaced last week when the school’s Kentucky campuses were abruptly closed.
The Council on Postsecondary Education, the Bluegrass Community and Technical College and the Jefferson Community and Technical College will hold two information sessions this week.
“In the wake of ITT’s closing, students were left with so much uncertainty related to their educational futures,” said council President Bob King. “We hope these sessions will provide students with the information they need to transition to another institution to complete their degrees.”
The first session will be on Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Leestown campus of BCTC, Leestown Conference Center, 164 Opportunity Way, Lexington.
The second will be on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the downtown campus of JCTC, Health Science Hall, 110 W. Chestnut, Louisville.
In addition to the host institutions, students will have the opportunity to explore college options with representatives from other institutions.
Officials from the U.S. Department of Education, Department of Veteran Affairs and the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority will be available to talk with students about their financial aid options.
Students should bring their transcripts or grade reports and any industry certifications.
ITT closed last week after the U.S. Department of Education announced it was cutting off federal financial aid because of accreditation problems.
