On September 20, Oakwood University hosted an information session to reach out to the former students of ITT Tech after that institution’s unexpected closing. The information session included representatives from the Registrar’s Office for transcript review, the Financial Aid office for assistance with funding, and academic advisors from various departments.
“Education is vital to the future of our society,” says Dr. Leslie Pollard, president of Oakwood University. “If we at Oakwood can do anything to assist the students who were displaced by the closing of ITT Tech, we want to support them.”
“Oakwood University is a great place and we want as many local students as possible to be able to complete their education right here at home,” says President Pollard. “We also plan to serve non-local ITT students through our online services.”
“We’re excited for these students to finish what they started,” remarked Vice President for Academic Administration, Dr. Karen Benn Marshall. “We plan to work very closely with every individual student to determine which credits will transfer and how they can complete their degree.”
