Ferris State University has announced five upcoming events focused on former ITT Tech students in the wake of ITT’s sudden closure that occurred the week of Sept. 5.
Advisors, admissions and financial aid experts from Ferris and its Kendall College of Art and Design will be available at each event to help students develop individual plans to meet their educational goals. Free admission applications and transcript evaluations will also be available. Advisors are authorized to admit qualified students to the university, onsite. This means that attendees could leave each event as new Ferris students.
Events are scheduled for:
Thursday, Sept. 22, 5 to 8 p.m.
Grand Rapids Community College, Applied Technology Center, rooms ATC 122 and ATC 124
Monday, Sept. 26, 5 to 8 p.m.
Mott Community College, Memorial Building, Room 1008
Tuesday, Sept. 27, 5 to 8 p.m. at
Macomb Community College – South Campus, K-Building, Room 301
Wednesday, Sept. 21, from 9 to 11 a.m. and 6 to 8 p.m.
Former ITT students will have the opportunity to learn more about steps taken by Ferris and KCAD to simplify the transfer process. In addition to university staff being available to assist with various admissions and financial aid processes, including onsite transcript evaluation and individualized advising, an extensive course equivalency list will allow students to receive Ferris credit for many of their ITT classes. In some cases, it may be possible for students to begin classes yet this semester at any of Ferris’ 22 locations across Michigan or at KCAD.
