ECC reaching out to ITT students after nationwide campus closures

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Erie Community College (ECC) is offering a helping hand to former ITT Tech students displaced from their education.

When ITT recently announced that they were shutting down their campuses across the country, that meant the closure of the Getzville campus as well. 300 students attended that school.

ECC announced they will be giving additional admissions assistance to former ITT students who wish to continue their education at ECC.

“As a regional leader in career-focused education, ECC has an obligation to help these displaced students fulfill their educational and professional goals,” ECC President Jack Quinn said. “Not only can we offer these students the opportunity to transfer many of their college credits into similar programs at our three campuses, but we can do it with tuition that’s affordable on any budget.”

ECC’s degree programs and other information about applying can be found at this new webpage.

ECC is also offering help at their admissions offices. Here are their locations:

  • 121 Ellicott St. in Buffalo
  • 6205 Main St. in Williamsville
  • 4041 Southwestern Boulevard in Orchard Park
