Huntington University invites former ITT students to apply
Huntington University is throwing a lifeline to students left adrift by the abrupt closure of ITT last week.
The university has announced it will “accept transfer credits from completed ITT courses as long as they are considered college level and the student has earned an acceptable grade,” according to a news release.
“Huntington University is looking forward to helping these students make a smooth transition so that they can complete their degrees. We’re here to help the ITT students in whatever way we can,” Melodie Winans, recruitment coordinator for the university, said in the announcement.
Huntington University offers more than 70 majors on the main campus that include popular programs like nursing, education, business and animation. HU also offers online programs as well as accelerated five-week courses (one night per week in Huntington) for those interested in business, ministry and psychology.
Online and accelerated programs start every five weeks, and the next opportunity to begin classes on Huntington’s main campus is in January.Financial aid is available depending on a student’s chosen program. Huntington University offers several financial aid opportunities including grants, academic awards and work-study programs, according to the university.
