ITT students get their federal loans discharged

In response to the announcement that ITT Educational Services is closing its more than 100 campuses nationwide, Secretary King sent a message to students explaining their options to continue their studies at another school or have their federal loans discharged; Under Secretary Ted Mitchell sent a letter to community college leaders whose institutions are close to one or more ITT campuses and offer programs that align with several of ITT’s offerings, urging them to step in and help these students; the Department launched an ITT-specific web page with a series of questions-and-answers and information on webinars and in-person transfer fairs; and the Under Secretary participated in a call with reporters outlining the agency’s plan to support students (press call audio andtranscript).
