ATHENS, Ala. - A college accustomed to dealing with transfers and financial aid needs, leaders with Athens State University invite former ITT Tech students to contact the institution to try to find a fit.

"If these students are looking for a place to further their education, we’d love to help them out," said Guy McClure, university public relations director.

The University released the following statement:

Athens State University is saddened to learn of the closing this week of ITT Technical Institute and the adverse impact this has on students attending the school. The University is committed to assisting students wishing to transfer to Athens State to complete their education.

As a regionally accredited, state-supported University, we are constrained by guidelines that sometimes limit our ability to transfer all credits from all institutions. Nonetheless, given the hardship that the ITT closing has placed on so many students in Alabama and across the country, we welcome the opportunity to review transcripts and course descriptions on request for any possible transfer of credit to our programs.

Athens State University offers over fifty majors and options in more than one hundred areas of study. For more information about our programs and how we can assist students impacted by the ITT closings, please call 256-233-8100 or go to
