Park University has announced plans to assist those students who attended any campus of the recently closed ITT Technical Institute.

As a special offer for all former ITT Tech students — especially those students pursing degrees in business administration and criminal justice administration — Park University will waive application and expedited validated learning equivalency petition fees, and for those students who meet grade point average requirements, VLE credit hour fees will also be waived. Former ITT Tech students can receive up to 24 hours of course credit from their ITT Tech classes.

Founded in 1875 in Parkville, Mo., a suburb of Kansas City, Park University is an independent institution that is a national leader in higher education. The University serves students at 40 campus centers nationwide and online worldwide, offering access to the quality undergraduate and graduate degrees students desire at locations, times and delivery formats that best serve their needs.

Park University has been recognized by Washington Monthly among the “Best Four-Year Colleges for Adult Learners” in the country (No. 2 among private colleges/universities and No. 3 overall), and U.S. News and World Report ranked Park as the 10th least expensive private college/university in the country, based on 2016-17 tuition and fees. In addition, the University is one of the top schools in the country for annual return on investment, according to the PayScale College ROI Report.

Park also maintains a long-standing relationship with the U.S. military, and has been honored as one of the military friendly colleges and universities in the country. The University is the top-ranked “Best for Vets” private college/university in the country as determined by Military Times magazine, and the publication has acclaimed Park’s School of Business the No. 2 “Best for Vets” business school in the country.

Park’s Fall II 8-week term begins Monday, Oct. 17, and the University’s 16-week Spring Semester and 8-week Spring I term begins Monday, Jan. 16, 2017. Former ITT Tech students seeking more information about Park University’s special offer for assistance should contact the University’s Office of Admissions at or (888) 319-9522.
