Asher College announces that their accredited campuses will provide transfer opportunities to students affected by the recent closure of ITT Educational Services, Inc.
On Tuesday, one of the largest for-profit career colleges in the United States, ITT Educational Services, Inc. (ITT), closed all of its campuses. The closure of ITT will leave an estimated 35,000 students in a difficult situation with their studies and training unfinished. In response to this situation, Asher College, an accredited career college with campuses in three states, has announced that their campuses are open to accepting former ITT students seeking to complete their education. Asher would like to offer their assistance to these students.
For students who were scheduled to start classes at ITT this term, the closure is certainly inconvenient. But for students who had already earned credits at ITT, and especially for those who were about to graduate, the closure poses bigger problems.
Switching schools mid-training can be difficult between the change in learning environment and the hassle of transferring credits. However, the difficult situation is being alleviated in part thanks to established and accredited educational institutions such as Asher College that are willing to accept transfer students of now defunct ITT.
David Vice, President and CEO of Asher College, states, “Students who are forced to transfer schools due to closure find themselves in a tough situation. Asher College is committed to working with those individuals to see how their unique educational circumstances can be accommodated and make the transition to their new school as smooth as possible.”
Asher College is a vocational college and career trade school that was established in Asher College Sacramento, California in 1998 and that now operates in Asher College Dallas, Texas as well as Asher College Las Vegas, Nevada. Asher’s commitment to providing quality education to its students is demonstrated in its 18-year track record and national accreditation through ACCET.
