September 9, 2016 / VU prepared to help ITT students
VINCENNES, Ind. - Vincennes University is ready to help ITT students who have had their education disrupted by the sudden closing of ITT.
“VU has a great record of working with students to find the best path for them to get an education and pursue a career,” said VU President Chuck Johnson. “If we can assist Hoosiers affected by the ITT closure, we would certainly be ready to work with them.”
ITT was banned Aug. 25 from enrolling new students who used federal financial aid because the company had become a risk to students and taxpayers, according to officials from the U.S. Department of Education.
“VU offers many ways for some of the displaced ITT students to continue and finish their education. Our programs in the Indianapolis area and southern Indiana may overlap with ITT programs in Indianapolis and Newburgh, and our extensive online course and program offerings may also be a good option. VU stands ready to help former ITT students understand which of their ITT credits would apply to a VU degree, counsel them toward career and education opportunities that fit their goals, and identify courses that work with their scheduling needs,” Johnson said.
Former ITT students may receive assistance by contacting the VU Admissions Office at 812-888-4313 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Military veterans should contact the VU Veterans Office by calling 800-468-7480. VU has been named a military friendly school by several organizations.
