TALLADEGA -- Talladega College announced this week that it is offering admission to any former student of the ITT Technical Institute.

ITT Tech closed its doors earlier this month after filing for bankruptcy.

The institute had three locations in Alabama and served approximately 1,600 students.

Talladega College plans to assist any past student of the technical institute through its “FastTrack” program. The program offers online courses, which caters to adult learners and their busy schedules.

Former ITT Tech students who enroll at Talladega College will receive a $1,500 scholarship during their first academic year.

Beginning Oct. 24, Talladega College will provide six-week online sessions in the fields of criminal justice, psychology and business administration.

Additionally, the college will offer a five-week session for students majoring in business management, with a focus in organizational management.

The online courses enable former Tech students to enroll before January 2017.

“Talladega College is proud and honored to offer admission to former ITT Technical Institute students,” the press release notes.

Those interested may stop by the FastTrack office in room 105 at Sumner Hall.
