Macomb Community College sets point of contact for displaced ITT students seeking educational options

– Wednesday, September 7, 2016 12:00AM

As local ITT Technical Institute students scramble to identify educational options in the wake of the abrupt closure of all its schools, Macomb Community College has established a single point of contact for those interested in exploring options at the college. ITT students may contact Macomb’s dean of students via email at deanofstudents@macomb.edu or by phone at 586.445.7408.  

“Macomb Community College is committed to helping our community’s displaced ITT students through this difficult transition,” said James Sawyer, provost, Macomb Community College.  “However, we will have to work through each student’s situation on a case-by-case basis, since there wasn’t an established transfer agreement in place with ITT.”  

Macomb, accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, offers more than 200 programs and degrees, including a robust slate of career and technical programs such as design, automated systems technology, engineering and information technology. The college has more than 225 transfer plans to advanced degree programs at senior colleges and universities, and offers access to more than 75 advanced degrees through 12 partners at the Macomb University Center, located on the college’s Center Campus in Clinton Township.  

Macomb Community College (www.macomb.edu) is one of the nation’s leading community colleges, providing learning experiences to nearly 44,000 students annually, and is the largest grantor of associate degrees in Michigan.
