MARION, Ind., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU), which has a generous transfer policy for adult and online students, has announced that it may accept up to 62 credit hours from ITT Technical Institute students who are left searching for options after ITT announced on Tuesday that it was shutting down its academic operations.
IWU — a nonprofit, regionally accredited institution — currently has about 10,000 adult students attending classes either online or at one of IWU's 16 education centers located in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. IWU's online students come from all over the United States as well as other countries. The university has more than 80 online and onsite degree programs available through its Adult Enrollment Services.
"We would like to welcome all ITT Tech students who are interested in completing their degrees to contact us in order to get their ITT Tech transcripts officially evaluated," said R. David Rose, vice president for enrollment and marketing for non-residential services.
ITT Technical Institute, based in Carmel, Ind., announced Tuesday that it was permanently closing its more than 130 academic campuses in 38 states, canceling the fall academic quarter, and eliminating the jobs of about 8,000 employees. ITT's website says that ITT credits are unlikely to transfer.
However, IWU may accept up to 62 credit hours earned at a grade of C or higher for adult and online programs. IWU has classes that start on a weekly basis, with affordable tuition rates that start at $283 a credit hour.
Students who are interested in learning more about IWU's online or onsite degree programs may begin their evaluation process by calling 1-866-498-4968, option 0, or going to www.indwes.edu/ITT.
