Rowan College at Burlington County offers assistance to former ITT students

Laurel Hall

Rowan College at Burlington County is offering personalized assistance and waiving late registration fees to help students affected by the closing of the ITT Technical Institute.

“Our hearts go out to these students who find themselves in a very difficult situation at the beginning of the school year,” RCBC President Paul Drayton said. “There is still time for students to transfer to Rowan College at Burlington County this semester and we are ready to make the transition as quick and easy as possible.”

Former ITT students who want to continue their education may contact Admissions Counselor Jeannine Baumgartner at jbaumgartner@rcbc.edu or 856-242-5201. Late registration fees will be waived for students transferring from ITT and students can complete their enrollment process in time to take advantage of RCBC’s seven-week and 10-week terms starting later this fall.

“We will evaluate each student’s financial and academic situation and work with them toward the best possible solution,” Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Success Mike Cioce said. “We understand the predicament students are in and are here to help.”

The for-profit ITT, which operated more than 130 schools including one in Marlton, suddenly closed yesterday after the U.S. Department of Education barred it from receiving federal financial aid.
