ITT Tech’s Permanent Shutdown Includes Nine Ohio Campuses

ITT Educational Services announced Tuesday that it is permanently closing all of its ITT Technical Institute campuses, including nine in Ohio, after the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) blocked the schools from enrolling new students who receive federal aid.  According to the USDOE, students have two options: Those currently or recently enrolled at ITT are eligible to have federal student loans for their programs at ITT discharged.  Students may also be able to transfer credits to a different school, though that option may limit the ability to have federal loans discharged.  USDOE said it will update student information on the ITT closing at its website, studentaid.ed.gov/sa/about/announcements/itt. (See The Hannah Report, 9/6/16.)

For information about whether another Ohio approved nursing education program would award credit for advanced standing and admission, students need to contact the programs directly.  A list of approved programs and contact information is located under the Education Program link.

The Board has been informed that Parchment, (http://www.parchment.com/) is the custodian of records for the now closed Breckenridge School of Nursing and Health Sciences @ITT Technical Institutes located in Ohio. Parchment is presently processing transcript requests.

For additional assistance, you may also contact the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges at  (614) 466-2752; or (877) 275-4219; or bpsr@scr.state.oh.us
