Tarrant County College has announced an education fair for the 500 students affected by the recent closing of ITT Technical Institute in Arlington.

Meanwhile, the University of North Texas in Denton is helping out by enrolling qualified students for fall and and spring classes. UNT has undergraduate degree programs specifically designed to accept 45 or more credits transferred from technical programs, including ITT Technical Institute.

To begin classes this fall, qualified students will receive individualized attention and will be walked through the enrollment process. Interested students may call Myra Hafer at 940-369-8044 or email at transfer@unt.edu.

Intended to help students continue their studies and help faculty find employment, Tarrant County College’s event is set from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 21 at TCC South Campus’ Fusion Auditorium of the Center for Excellence in Energy School, 5301 Campus Drive in Fort Worth.

The event will offer transcript reviews and advising appointments. ITT faculty also are encouraged to attend the education fair to learn about teaching opportunities at TCC.

While some ITT credits may not transfer, TCC said it is committed to helping affected students make a cost- and time-efficient transition so they may complete their studies and get into the workforce quickly.  Students may have time to enroll in the second eight-weeks of the fall semester.

“We have always and will always be deeply committed to student retention and student success, because we know that education is the strongest bridge to self-sufficiency and a thriving economy,” said Eugene Giovannini, chancellor of Tarrant County College, commenting in a news release. “Our job is to help these students transfer into our programs as seamlessly as possible.”

TCC offers about 70 career and technical education programs at $59 per credit hour.
