Delgado Community College officials are acting to make certain that the dreams of former ITT Technical Institute students are made real through continued access to higher education and job training.
ITT Tech has announced it is closing its campuses in St. Rose and Baton Rouge, abruptly ending the studies of about 2250 enrolled students.
“Delgado is working to create seamless pathways for former ITT Tech students so that their investments of time, energy and funds will have the outcome they desire,” said Dr. Arnel Cosey, vice chancellor for student affairs, who oversees admissions and enrollment at Delgado.
The students do not have to wait until January or later to continue their studies at Delgado. The college is prepared to accept applications from former ITT Tech students for the Delgado Second Start classes beginning October 5 at multiple Delgado locations and online. Spring Semester classes begin on January 14, 2017.
Delgado Financial Aid will work with individual ITT Tech students to determine their financial situations and help them access the financial resources needed to complete their education.
Delgado will announce a series of Open Houses for former ITT Tech students to learn first-hand about educational offerings.
Delgado has fully accredited programs available to students in the following areas offered by ITT Tech: Business Management, Computer and Information Sciences, Firefighting, Marketing, Law Enforcement, and Visual and Performing Arts.
In addition to those programs, all of Delgado’s 35 associate degree and 84 certificate and diploma programs are available to former ITT Tech students.
Those seeking more information should call Delgado Admissions at (504) 671-5012 or go to www.dcc.edu.
