Students displaced by I.T.T.  Tech’s closure have been scrambling to find another school that will honor their credits.

At an open house at Northwest Nazarene University, former I.T.T. students will have a chance to learn how to further their education at the private school in Nampa.

"We just felt it was necessary to provide some advising of the different options during a pretty stressful time for these students," said Shawn Blenker, Director of Admissions at N.N.U.

N.N.U. has received the course catalog from I.T.T. Tech so advisors will look at each student's courses and credits individually to determine the best options for them.

Blenker says because of the difficult circumstances, N.N.U. will waive the application fee for students considering to transfer.

N.N.U. offers traditional undergraduate experiences with professors face-to-face, but they also offer a variety of associate and bachelor degree programs online that fit the needs of I.T.T. students.

"I think it's important that students know, both I.T.T. Tech and others who are affected by these for-profit colleges that they have options," said Blenker. 

The open house will be held Tuesday from four to six p.m. at N.N.U.’s admissions welcome center located at 507 Holly Street in Nampa.
