LLCC Offers Assistance To ITT Students

Sep 8, 2016

Lincoln Land Community College says it will offer help to students of ITT Technical Institute displaced after the school announced this week it's closing.  Lincoln Land is designating a special advisor to work one on one with those students and give them options for enrolling. 

Walk-in career counseling will be available Monday and Tuesday.  Michelle Burger, career development professional, can be reached at 786.2206 or michelle.burger@llcc.edu. Her office is located in Menard Hall, room 1153 on the LLCC campus, 5250 Shepherd Road.

Special walk-in career counseling will be available Monday, Sept. 12 from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A number of fall modular and short semester courses start in several weeks at LLCC, and in some cases, ITT students may be allowed to join fall classes already in progress. The special advisor is equipped to answer potential questions about transfer to LLCC, prior learning assessment, financial aid, transcripts and more.

Those programs include criminal justice; information technology including cybersecurity and networking; electronics technology; drafting; graphic design; digital media and app design; business, including accounting; and health sciences.

ITT announced it was shutting down this week after the federal government prohibited the for-profit operation from accepting students getting federal aid. The decision has left many students in limbo.
