Virginia launches online portal to help ITT Tech students

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia has created a new online portal to help students impacted by the closure of the for-profit college chain ITT Technical Institute.

The website includes information about where students can seek loan forgiveness or continue their education at another institution.

ITT shuttered all 130 of its U.S. campuses earlier this month, saying it can’t survive recent sanctions by the U.S. Department of Education.

ITT had five campuses in Virginia in Salem, Chantilly, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Richmond.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe is encouraging students who attended ITT in Virginia to call their nearest community college to find out how they can continue their education.
