Baltimore County, MD – Community College of Baltimore County is reaching out to students impacted by ITT Tech’s recent closure, inviting them to an open house event, 10 a.m.– 2 p.m. and 6 – 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15 at CCBC Owings Mills, Room 509 B & C, 10300 Grand Central Ave., Owings Mills, Md. Students are encouraged to bring copies of academic records or official/unofficial transcripts from ITT Tech or other colleges they may have attended.

Representatives from a variety of CCBC departments will be on hand to meet with students and help them explore their options. Advisors, financial aid representatives, academic program faculty and staff, transcript evaluators, members of the admissions team and more will be available.

“Hundreds of students locally have been impacted by ITT Tech’s closure,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis, “and we want to help these students as much as we can. Our Owings Mills campus is in close proximity to ITT Tech’s Baltimore site and we offer many of the same programs at a much more affordable cost,” Kurtinitis said. “We are encouraging ITT Tech students to stop by our Open House to review CCBC’s program offerings and discuss how we might help get them back on track.”

The open house is free, and no reservations are required. For more information, call 443-840-CCBC (2222) or email
