ITT closes its doors: What does it mean for veteran students?

ITT Tech announced Tuesday that it is shutting down on campuses permanently.

So what does this mean for veteran students?

According to The Department of Veteran Affairs, students can no longer receive GI Bill benefits, including the monthly housing allowance, for any future classes at ITT. The VA cannot pay for classes even if enrollment for the upcoming term was submitted to ITT beginning after the end of the summer quarter.  

Payments under any GI Bill benefit program including the Post-911 GI Bill and the Survivor’s and Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program are also included.

The VA does not have the legal authority to restore any GI Bill benefits used to attend ITT, even if the student is not finished with the classes this term.

Students are free to pursue their educational goals at another school or training facility.
