Since ITT’s announcement on September 6 of its immediate closure, the HECC has been working to inform local students of their of their current options as consumers and learners.
Transcript Update: Per a company spokesman, ITT Educational Services’ first priority is to “secure and preserve all student records”. Grades earned during the most recent quarter are currently being input and student transcripts will be updated early next week, thus allowing students who have completed their programs to graduate. Diplomas will be mailed directly to graduates’ homes. ITT Educational Services is currently working on reconciling all student financial accounts and will make financial ledgers available at a future date to be confirmed.
Students wishing to request transcripts should access the ITT Student Portal. The spokesman confirmed that a large number of transcript requests had already been received and were being processed. Graduates can also request transcripts via the ITT Alumni website. The ITT Technical Institute website is currently being updated to provide further information and a direct link to transcript requests. ITT Educational Services has confirmed that going forward, and contrary to earlier information provided, Credentials Inc. will not be processing transcript requests. Instead the corporation is planning to enter into an agreement with an alternative credentials processor, Parchment . Contact information for Parchment will be provided at a later stage.
The HECC has requested pdf copies of all transcripts for all students, past and present, who have attended either of the Oregon campuses of ITT Technical Institute.
An email was sent to ITT students with a notice entitled "ITT Technical Institute Oregon Campuse Closure Update." That update has since been updated and is posted above.
In August, 2016, the United States Department of Education (US DOE) imposed new restrictions on ITT Tech. ITT Tech students and consumers are encouraged to visit the following US DOE blog for helpful information. In addition, students with questions about federal student aid, which includes Federal Pell Grants, Direct Loans, and Work-Study, are encouraged to review Studentaid.gov. There is an ITT page on StudentAid.gov for students impacted by these actions. ITT Technical Institute is authorized by the Office of Degree Authorization (ODA), part of the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC).
