Fresno Pacific University is extending a helping hand to former ITT students since the for-profit college closed all its campuses Tuesday, including a Clovis location.

Fresno Pacific University (FPU) will consider accepting additional transfer units from ITT, waive the FPU application fee and work with students’ financial aid to help them meet their educational goals, according to a news release.

“We want to step up and assist these students who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a very difficult situation,” said Jon Endicott, vice president of enrollment management. “We have the academic offerings, for nontraditional as well as traditional students, locations and personal support to get these students back on track to complete their degrees.”

Nearly 3,600 students attend Fresno Pacific University, on the main campus in Southeast Fresno or at regional campuses in North Fresno, Visalia, Bakersfield and Merced, as well as online. Students in Bachelor’s degree completion courses meet one night a week. Those pursuing traditional B.A. and B.S. programs and Master’s degrees have classes in the evening or during the day, depending on their program. The new computer information systems degree is coming to Fresno’s downtown Bitwise South Stadium in January, 2017.

For more information on attending FPU, call 559-453-3690.
