Dear ITT Student,  

On September 7, 2016 we received notification that ITT was ceasing operations. We know that this will impact a lot of students and there will be many questions. The Student Financial Aid Office at Alamo Colleges will attempt to provide as much guidance as we can to assist you in achieving your educational goals. You will have some important decisions to make now about your future. 

In a statement from the Department of Education, Secretary of Education John King made the following comment. “Ultimately, we (DOE) made a difficult choice to pursue additional oversight in order to protect you, other students, and taxpayers from potentially worse educational and financial damage in the future if ITT was allowed to continue operating without increased oversight and assurances to better serve students,” King said. “Whatever you choose to do, do not give up on your education. Higher education remains the clearest path to economic opportunity and security. Restarting or continuing your education at a high-quality, reputable institution may feel like a setback today, but odds are it will pay off in the long run.” 

To assist you in your decision making process, we have attached some guidance that we have received from the Department of Education and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. We encourage you to thoughtfully consider your options for moving forward. If you decide to enroll at one of the Alamo Colleges, we are here to assist you. 

If you were a financial aid recipient and want to apply for aid at Alamo Colleges to enroll in the 16-17 academic year, you simply need to update your FAFSA application to include either St. Philip’s College, San Antonio College, Northwest Vista College or Palo Alto College as a college you wish to receive your financial information. For a list of school codes, click here. This will allow us to begin processing your request for assistance and facilitate your enrollment in a future semester. 

As a reminder, students applying for the 17-18 academic year can begin that process earlier than usual, beginning on October 1, 2016. This is a recent change to processing timelines by the Department of Education. For more information on this change, click here. Please contact any of our offices if you have any questions. 

We wish you great success! The ITT closure may be a temporary setback but we will help you through it!
