Bishop State: ITT Credits Don’t Transfer

About 20 former ITT Technical Institute students attended a meeting at Bishop State Community College Monday afternoon.

They were trying to figure out if they’d be able to continue their studies at Bishop State.

College officials say they would gladly accept ITT students, but many may have to come without any credits.

Course work from ITT does not transfer to Alabama colleges. That means some, even on the verge of graduating, would have to restart their studies.

“So a lot of these students are having to start all over again, which is kind of disheartening for them and so we are trying to see what we can do to help that process along,” said Daphne Stamps, a student recruiter at Bishop State.

Officials say it is possible for students to come with a few credits based on individual assessments.

Another meeting will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Southwest campus cafeteria located at 925 Dauphin Island Parkway if students want more information.
