The Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) is working to help all displaced students across Illinois impacted by the closure of ITT Tech continue their education though their local community college. In letters going out to nearly 1,000 ITT Tech students, the ICCB is providing potential students with information to locate the nearest community college and urging them to contact the college about program availability and transfer options.
“Illinois community colleges will do all they can to assist these students whose educational progress was suddenly terminated,” said ICCB executive director Dr. Karen Hunter Anderson. “The Illinois community college system is best positioned to provide these students with the option to continue or restart their education at quality, affordable institutions.”
ITT Tech operated four campuses in Illinois – Arlington Heights, Oak Brook, Orland Park, and Springfield. Additional information for displaced students is available on the ICCB website (www.iccb.org). The ICCB has also designated staff to answer questions and direct students to additional information and resources.
The Illinois Community College Board is the state coordinating board for community colleges. Illinois is home to 48 community colleges in 39 districts and has the third largest community college system in the nation serving nearly 1 million residents each year in credit and non-credit courses.
