Important Information

On September 6, 2016, ITT Technical Institute (ITT) announced the permanent closure of its 130 campuses nationwide.

Private, for-profit colleges like ITT have been under intense scrutiny in recent years after a series of institutions have gone bankrupt and shut down. These campus closures have had devastating consequences for students and staff, and state and federal regulators are working to prevent future closures and pursue justice.

In the meantime, students affected by the closure need to know what to do and where to turn for assistance with their student loans and to complete their education.

This page contains important state resources and information for all California students enrolled at ITT, as well as those impacted by other for-profit school closures in recent years.

Background and U.S. Department of Education Investigation of ITT

A recent investigation by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) into the financial stability of ITT raised serious concerns about ITT’s accreditation, financial stability, and its ability to serve students.

In response to the ED’s findings, the California Department of Consumer Affairs’ Bureau of Private Post-Secondary Education (BPPE) issued an Emergency Decision requiring ITT Educational Services, Inc. (ITT) to stop accepting new students at its 15 California locations on August 25, 2016. Shortly after BPPE’s decision, ITT announced that they would no longer be accepting new students at any of their campuses nation-wide.

In response to steps taken by state and federal regulators, ITT announced the immediate closure of all 130 of its campuses nationwide in a statement released on September 6, 2016.

Special Considerations for Students Using the GI Bill

  • Students may or may not be able to continue their educational goals elsewhere.
  • There is no guarantee that other schools will accept any transfer credits from ITT.
  • GI Bill beneficiaries enrolled at ITT may file a complaint with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Education here and may contact the USDVA Call Center with questions at 1-888-442-4551 (Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. CST).
