ITT Technical Institute flop puts Madison students in limbo


MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The shutdown of ITT Technical Institute’s 130 campuses has left former students at the for-profit college’s Madison campus in educational limbo.

The Wisconsin State Journal ( ) reports students’ questions about whether, or how, to continue their education still linger since the Sept. 7 announcement that it was closing.

Over 40 students were enrolled at the Madison campus. Another 250 were at a campus in Greenfield.

Those who took out loans to pay tuition can apply for a loan discharge from the federal government, but the move will also require them to forfeit their class credits.

Students’ other option is to keep their loans and credits and try transferring to another college.
