Hello ITT Tech Students,

My name is Dr. Phillip Crabill, Counselor at Santiago Canyon College.  We at Santiago Canyon College are here to help you investigate all of your options in the wake of the ITT Technical Institute closure, and make a decision that is right for you.  I invite each of you to visit our campus and meet with me in the SCC Counseling Center.  Together, we can discuss current options available to ITT Tech students, important information to consider, and chart a path toward your continued educational success.  To book an appointment with me, please call the Counseling Center at 714-628-4800, or visit us in room D-106. 

I encourage you to review the resources I've compiled below, for your information and benefit:

​Helpful Resources for ITT Tech Students:

ITT Announcements - a web page run by Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Dept of Education.

Information on Student Loan Discharge and Credit Transfers - please read carefully the "CLOSED SCHOOL LOAN DISCHARGE" and "CREDIT TRANFERS" information on this web page; know the implications of receiving Loan Forgiveness (a.k.a. Loan Discharge) before taking steps to apply.

  • Also, please be sure to speak with your Student Loan servicer and a tax professional before applying for Loan Discharge - know how your taxes can be impacted before having your loan(s) discharged.

Frequently Asked Questions by students specifically impacted by the ITT Tech closure - answered by Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Dept of Education.

ITT Tech Transfer Credit Agreements - Provides a list of colleges & universities that have established articulation agreements with ITT Tech; these schools may be willing to accept ITT Tech credits for transfer into their institution, as you continue toward finishing your educational goal. This list is updated daily. Please note: This link is provided as a resource, as you start your search to continue your education - not as my endorsement of any institution listed therein.  Investigate thoroughly any school that is named on this list before applying.  Learn if they are identified as a For-Profit or Non-Profit institution, as well as the school's current accreditation status.  Transfer credit eligibility at any school listed here varies from institution to institution, and case-by-case.
