Informational sessions begins for ITT Tech

Richland College will offer two scheduled informational sessions for the former ITT Technical Institute (ITT) students displaced by the closing announced last week, and others who may be interested, Sept. 12 and 13 with sessions at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., in Sabine Hall, Room SH117.

ITT discontinued operations as of September 6 at all campuses, leaving students and prospective students to find other options to complete their technical education.

Richland offers many of the associate degree technical programs that were offered by ITT Tech including the traditional 16-week term and flex-term classes throughout the fall semester. As of Thursday, there were a number of flex-term classes still available this semester.

“Richland College is prepared to offer an exceptional learning experience to students whose educational paths have been displaced due to the closing of all ITT Tech campuses,” said Richland President Dr. Kay Eggleston.

“We offer many similar technical programs for both credit and noncredit, and with flex-term classes still available this semester we are in a position to help these students continue their education with little downtime.”
