YSU says ITT records will be evaluated on ‘case-by-case basis’

Youngstown State University says some ITT Technical Institute students may be able to transfer their credits to YSU

Youngstown State University

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown State University is reaching out to former students of ITT Technical Institute after the school’s sudden closure earlier this month.

YSU said it maintains the following policy regarding acceptance of course credits from a non-regionally accredited institution:

Courses from nonregionally-accredited institutions may be accepted on a case-by-case basis with the approval of the chair of the department and the dean of the college in which the course would be housed at YSU.”

Students interested in having their completed coursework evaluated can order their ITT transcripts through Parchment online at http://www.parchment.com/ITT/ to start the evaluation process. Transcripts can be sent directly to Kimberlee Avery, associate director of Undergraduate Admissions, at kaavery@ysu.edu. She can be reached directly at 330-941-1662.

Students also should be aware of implications regarding their financial aid prior to pursuing college credit. Based on U.S. Department of Education requirements, students are not eligible for a closed school loan discharge if they want to transfer credits from ITT to another institution.

Students will have no loan repayment obligations if they accept an ITT closed school loan discharge but are prohibited from receiving transfer credit.

To apply for loan forgiveness through the closed school discharge process, students should contact their loan servicers.
