Penn Highlands to assist Students affected by Closing of DuBois Business College & ITT Technical InstitutePosted September 7, 2016 at 11:03 am
As ITT Technical Institute and DuBois Business College have announced they will close their doors this month, Pennsylvania Highlands Community College will utilize the experience it gained from a similar situation to help these students complete their education.
Penn Highlands, a local community college, worked closely with staff and students from Cambria-Rowe Business College over the summer to create transition plans for students looking to complete their education and find success. Currently, 40 former Cambria-Rowe students are enrolled in various programs at Penn Highlands Community College.
“First and foremost we want to say that we sympathize with these students from ITT Technical Institute and Dubois Business College,” said Dr. Walter Asonevich, President of Penn Highlands Community College. “A college education is a very personal experience and this is not the experience they had anticipated. The good news is that we have been through this with students from Cambria-Rowe, so we understand how the teach-out plans and transfer of credits will work.”
Representatives from the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College are available to assist and to advise these students affected by the closing of DuBois Business College and ITT Tech. Our goal is to ensure that each of these students has a plan in place to complete his or her education.
Penn Highlands has served more than 52,000 community members with quality and affordable academic options for over 20 years. Pennsylvania Highlands Community College recognizes its role and responsibility to these students and to the entire community during this difficult time. Penn Highlands is here to help.
