WEST WINDSOR, NJ -
Days after the federal government said ITT Technical Institute could no longer accept federal student loans, the for-profit college closed their campuses. While 8,000 total people lost their jobs in the closure, there is hope for the 45,000 students who attended classes.
Mercer County Community College announced all displaced students in New Jersey and Eastern PA could enroll at Mercer with a reduced In-County rate, regardless of location, and no admission fee. For more information on that, visit MCCC.edu/enroll.
The problem is not over for ITT, however. The school now faces 3 lawsuits from former employees which say the school violated the federal WARN Act which requires employees be given at least 60 days notices before a mass layoff. The law covers employers with more than 100 employees.
