UNT offers to help ITT Tech students continue education

DENTON -- The University of North Texas has announced it will help qualified ITT Technical Institute students finish pursuing their education without interruption after all campuses closed across the nation this week.

Some undergraduate degree programs at UNT are designed to accept 45 or more transfer students from technical programs, the university said on Thursday.

"To begin classes this fall, qualified students will receive individualized attention and will be walked through the enrollment process," the school, based in Denton, said.

If you're an ITT Tech student and you're interested in enrolling at UNT, call Myra Hafer at (940) 369-8044 or email transfer@unt.edu.

Those who want to attend in the future can go to an open house on Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at UNT's new campus in Frisco.

Last week the Associated Press reported the U.S. Department of Education banned the for-profit college chain from enrolling new students who use federal financial aid.

North Texas campuses included DeSoto, Arlington and Richardson. Students were visibly upset when they heard the news.

ITT Tech has been ordered to pay $152 million within 30 days to cover student refunds and liabilities. About 8,000 people will be laid off.
