WBU assists itt tech students

Wayland Baptist University offers our assistance to those students negatively affected by the recent closing of all ITT Tech campuses.  We understand that this has caused severe disruption to many lives, the disappointment of potentially not being able to complete degrees invested in so intimately, and a general lack of trust in the higher education system.  However disheartening this may be, we encourage you to not give up on your goals and to remember that, despite this experience, education is still the best way to ensure that tomorrow is brighter than today.


In order to help correct this current circumstance, Wayland extends the invitation to all previous ITT students to apply to WBU free of charge.  Our Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree is specifically designed to accept the maximum amount of transfer hours.  We also award credit for qualified work experience, which may help offset any hours lost in transfer, and shorten your time to degree completion.  With campuses located in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Hawaii, Alaska, and Oklahoma, as well as all BAS degree options available fully online, you'll have no problem accessing whatever coursework you need to graduate.


Our goal is to help you complete your degree as seamlessly and efficiently as possible.  As a regionally accredited, non-profit, higher education institution that's been in existence since 1908, we know how to achieve that goal. 


All previous ITT students should be aware of their financial options regarding continuing their education, as compared to starting it over.  Information from the U.S. Secretary of Education regarding student loans should be considered carefully.


Whether you decide to start over or continue on, please don't give up on higher education - and don't give up on yourself.  Likewise, even if you don't choose to join the Wayland family, know that we support you during this difficult time, and pray earnestly for your success.
