Wayne State offers assistance to ITT students

As a university with a long tradition of providing access and opportunity to a diverse student body, Wayne State University is offering to assist students affected by the abrupt closure of local ITT Technical Institute schools.

Affected ITT students are invited to schedule appointments with designated Wayne State financial aid counselors to discuss issues related to financial aid and credit transfers. The counselors will educate students about how both processes work, potential implications, and assist with their decision making process.

“We have great empathy for these students,” said Dawn Medley, associate vice president of enrollment management. “Even if Wayne State is not the right fit for them, we want to offer these students support and encourage them to continue with their education.”

Former ITT students can make an appointment at or by calling 313-577-2100.

Students are also invited to attend Wayne State’s Fall Open House on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A special session will be held for ITT students.

Open House is an opportunity to learn about Wayne State’s degree programs and student support services. For more information about this event, please contact
