HARRISBURG, Pa – (WHTM) – HACC is offering a lifeline to ITT Technical Institute students who had their school close on them last week.
More than 40,000 ITT students nationwide had their school year abruptly end when the ITT campuses shut down. The action followed an announcement from the U.S. Education Department which ordered ITT to stop enrolling new students paying tuition with federal financial aid.
HACC President John Sygielski says his school can meet with ITT students to discuss ways for them to complete their education at a HACC campus.
“These students are left with the responsibility of repaying student loan debt and unfinished training for the programs they chose at ITT. We at HACC will do whatever we can to help them overcome this obstacle to their career path,” Sygielski said.
HACC says it has scholarships available to help ITT students get started in a HACC program.
