Roane State hosting admission events for former ITT Tech students


OAK RIDGE (WATE) – Roane State Community College is hosting admission events for former ITT Technical Institutes students, after the school shut down campuses nationwide.

“We know this is a challenging moment for ITT Tech students,” said. Diane Ward, Roane State vice president for student learning. “What’s most important is that ITT students continue their education and complete their degrees. Roane State has many opportunities that will benefit ITT Tech students, and we want to do anything we can to assist them.”

An informational session will be in the advising area of the Coffey-McNally Building on Roane State’s Oak Ridge campus September 20 from 3:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. Also, there will be an open house September 26 at the Clinton Higher Education and Workforce Training Facility, 214 Nave Street in Clinton. The open house will be from 5 p.m.-8 p.m.

Admission and financial aid staff will be at the events.

“Transfer of credits and financial aid are likely the main concerns for displaced ITT Tech students,”  Ward said. “Each situation is unique. Roane State has a lot to offer, and we will gladly help ITT Tech students determine which option is best for them.”

Roane State offers programs in mechatronics and computer information technology. There are late-start classes available for students who cannot enroll right away.
