Blinn invites ITT students to meet with academic advisors

ITT Technical Institute announced last week that it is ceasing operations

September 12, 2016

Blinn College is ready and willing to assist students whose educational path has been disrupted by the closure of ITT Technical Institute.

The College is encouraging students seeking to continue their education to meet with a Blinn College advisor for guidance in achieving their college and career goals. Students can make an appointment to speak to an academic advisor by calling the Brenham campus at 979-830-4196, the Bryan campus at 979-209-7250, the Schulenburg campus at 979-743-5200, or the Sealy campus at 979-627-7997.

ITT announced last week that it would cease operations, approximately two weeks after the U.S. Department of Education prohibited ITT from enrolling new students who use federal financial aid. In a message to ITT students, the U.S. Department of Education encouraged students to continue their education and identified two options for ITT students: discharging their federal loans or exploring the possibility of transferring credits to another institution.

“Blinn College is here to help, and we want to make the transition for anyone seeking a degree as easy as possible,” said Max Hibbs, Dean of Mathematics, Business, Engineering, and Technical Programs.

Blinn College credits transfer to leading four-year universities.
