Richland College has scheduled information sessions for former ITT Technical Institute students and others who had been considering ITT Tech for their education. The sessions will take place Sept. 12 and 13 at both 6 and 7:30 p.m. in Sabine Hall, room SH117, on the Richland College campus.
As of Tuesday, Sept. 6, ITT Tech has discontinued operations at all campuses, leaving students and prospective students forced to find other options to continue their technical education.
Richland College offers flex term classes that start throughout the fall semester and last fewer weeks than the traditional 16-week semester, an option that may appeal to many ITT Tech students accustomed to shorter class terms. There are currently many flex term classes still available for the fall 2016 semester. Richland College also offers many of the associate degree technical programs that were offered by ITT Tech.
“Richland College is prepared to offer an exceptional learning experience to students whose educational paths have been displaced due to the closing of all ITT Tech campuses,” said Kathryn K. Eggleston, Ph.D., president of Richland College. “We offer many similar technical programs for both credit and noncredit, and with flex term classes still available this semester, we are in a position to help these students continue their education with little downtime.”
Richland College is located at 12800 Abrams Rd. in Dallas. Anyone interested in attending the information sessions or exploring their educational options can visit richlandcollege.edu/itt-students.
Richland College’s Travel, Exposition and Meeting Management (TEMM) program will host two information sessions on July 30.
The first session will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the second session will be from 6-8 p.m. Both sessions will be held in Sabine Hall, Room S117.
This interactive event includes presentations by travel, hospitality and meeting/event industry leaders and instructors.
