LAKE WORTH — Palm Beach State College is scheduled to hold a transition workshop Wednesday afternoon for ITT Technical Institute students who want to explore their options for continuing their education.
The event will be held at 6 p.m. in the Technology Center, Room 104, on the campus west of Lake Worth, 4200 Congress Ave. Admissions, financial aid and career counseling staff will be on hand to assist students. Students should bring a copy of their unofficial transcript, driver license, voter registration card and vehicle registration.
ITT Tech, an Indiana-based for-profit college chain, announced this week that it is closing all of its 130 campuses in the U.S., leaving its reported 35,000 students scrambling just before their fall term was to begin. ITT Tech had 346 students at its campus in West Palm Beach, according to PBSC. Its South Florida campuses also included Hialeah, Davie and Fort Lauderdale.
While PBSC’s fall 16-week term started Aug. 23, registration is still underway for the shorter 12-week term that begins Monday.
Two ITT Tech students have already enrolled in the College’s Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program at the Palm Beach Gardens campus, the college said.
