Green River College welcomes former ITT Tech students
By Philip Denman, September 14, 2016
Green River College will welcome students affected by the recent closer of ITT Technical Institutes at an informational session at 7 p.m. Sept. 15 in the Technology Center, Room 116 on the main Auburn Campus.
The free advising workshop will give former ITT Tech students the opportunity to meet with Green River faculty members and advisors to explore options to continue pursuing their education at Green River College.
“This is a difficult time with a lot of changes for these students and we want to do everything in our power to help make the transition as easy as possible,” David Larsen, dean, Enrollment and Completion, said. “I’m confident that former ITT Technical Institute students will be welcomed and supported by the Green River College community.”
ITT announced Sept. 6 that it would immediately close all 130 of its campuses, including three in Washington. The for-profit college cited the U.S. Department of Education limiting their access to federal loans and grants, a critical source of revenue, as reason for the closure.
