Email to ITT Tech students

On August 25, the U.S. Department of Education imposed a series of new requirements and conditions on the ITT Technical Institutes, including imposing conditions on our institutions’ continued participation in the federal student financial aid programs that the Department of Education administers.  We proposed alternatives to the Department of Education, but they were rejected.  Therefore, after evaluating the impact of these new requirements on our institutions, we have made the very difficult decision to discontinue our operations effective immediately at the end of the June 2016 quarter and to cancel the upcoming September quarter that was scheduled to begin Monday, September 12.

At this time, we expect that all students will be able to complete their June 2016 academic quarter.  Students attending the ITT Tech campus in Baton Rouge should plan to attend any scheduled classes this week necessary to complete the current academic quarter.  

Please know we worked diligently to identify alternatives that would have allowed you to start or continue your education at ITT Tech, and earn your degree.  But the Department of Education’s actions have forced us to cease operations at the ITT Technical Institutes.  We are truly sorry to have to make this decision, but wanted to communicate it to you as soon as possible so that you can begin deciding the next steps to take that are best for you.

Important Information for You Going Forward

Please be assured that we are committed to keeping you informed about the impact on you of the closure of your school.

To that end, below is some key information to answer, what we imagine are, some of your immediate questions:

How do I see my grades?

You may access your academic record via the Student Portal by clicking this link.  Please use your student email and network password to login.  We expect to have all grades for the June 2016 quarter updated by Friday, September 9th.

How do I obtain a copy of my official transcript?

You may request a copy of your official transcript via the Student Portal by clicking this link.  Please use your student email and network password to login.  Graduates may also request an official transcript via the Alumni website by clicking this link.

Will my credits transfer to another institution?

As always, the decision to accept transfer credits is up to the receiving institution.  You may view a list of other schools that have entered into articulation agreements with the ITT Technical Institutes at www.itt-tech.edu/articulation.  Additionally, we have compiled a list of schools in your area that offer similar programs of study, as well as some institutions offering similar programs online, which you may want to contact.  See the following question for a list of schools.
