NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Delgado plans to hold a series of open houses for former ITT Tech students to learn how they might continue their education at the community college. ITT Tech, a for-profit college, ceased operations this week and closed campuses nationwide including in St. Rose and Baton Rouge.

"Delgado is working to create smooth pathways for former ITT Tech students so that their investments of time, energy and funds will have the outcome they desire," said Dr. Arnel Cosey, vice chancellor for student affairs. Delgado says approximately 2,250 students were enrolled in ITT Tech. 

Former ITT Tech students will not have to wait until January or later if they wish to enroll at Delgado. The college says it is prepared to accept applications from those students for Delgado Second Start classes that begin in October. 

Delgado says its Financial Aid Department will work with former ITT Tech students to determine what financial resources may be available to them so they can complete their education.

ITT Technical Institutes shut down its campuses just days after the U.S. Department of Education banned the for-profit college from enrolling new students who use federal financial aid.

ITT Tech had more than 130 campuses across 38 states.
