BCCC offering ITT Tech students affordable, accessible options
9/16/2016, 6 a.m.
In response to the recent ITT Tech closure, the Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) announced it will offer critical information to more than 600 of Maryland's displaced ITT Tech students. The goal is to offer options as well as concrete solutions on how to continue pursuing their higher education goals.
"For many of ITT Tech students, this is a difficult time filled with frustration and uncertainty about the status of their futures," said BCCC President/CEO Dr. Gordon F. May. "BCCC is prepared and uniquely positioned to offer credit for prior learning as well as a new pathway for associate degree and certificate program completion."
BCCC, through a college-wide effort, will host five open house events between Saturday, September 17 and Wednesday, September 28 on the Liberty Heights campus. During the open house events, ITT students will have an opportunity to tour the campus. They will receive guidance from financial aid and admissions advisors, student services, and academic affairs. In addition, the institution's academic deans and faculty members will be available for Q&A during the events.
BCCC offers 29 associate degree and 16 certificate programs aligned with five career pathways linked to fast-growing fields: Behavioral and Social Sciences; Business; Pre-Health Professions; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); and Visual and Performing Arts.
"Simply put, we are welcoming ITT Tech students to the BCCC family," said Dr. May. "We have a long-history of offering non-traditional students affordable, accessible educational opportunities."
Over 20 student clubs and organizations help foster a vibrant, cultural and social campus environment. Student-athletes are making the grade and excelling in basketball, volleyball and cross-country, while also representing BCCC in the community.
