Are you an ITT Tech student trying to figure out your next move? We can help!

With the recent shutdown of ITT Technical Institute, many ITT students may find themselves struggling with what to do next.  Peirce has opened its doors to ITT students to provide them with a seamless transition to keep their education on track.

Peirce College has more than 150 years of experience serving Philadelphia’s adult learners.  Being a non-profit institution, our students’ tuition is re-invested into providing a quality educational experience.  Peirce College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education* and offers practical associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees developed in alignment with employer needs.  

Peirce is a great fit for ITT students looking to continue to complete their degrees in a nurturing and supportive environment. To help former ITT Tech students learn more about their transfer options, Peirce College is hosting a dedicated information session on Tuesday, September 13th.  ITT students who attend will receive one-on-one guidance and support from our enrollment counselors to continue their education at Peirce as well as these great benefits:


  •          $50 application fee waived
  •          A $100 book voucher for registered students
  •         Access to a Peirce orientation course at no charge
  •         48-hour unofficial transcript evaluation

ITT students will enjoy the unique flexibility of Peirce Fit™ across our entire curriculum (business, healthcare, legal studies, and information technology programs). Our competency-based bachelor’s degree in Information Technology could also be a fit for ITT students with work experience in the IT field.

The Peirce enrollment and student financial services team is briefed and ready to support ITT Tech students on credit transfer; credit-by-examination test options; ITT loan forgiveness; and any other questions they may have to make a seamless transition to complete their degree.

If you are a former ITT student or know someone affected by the ITT Tech closure, encourage them to  register for our upcoming information session, click here or contact Peirce today.  Our next session starts on September 26th so it’s not too late to enroll for fall!

We look forward to seeing you at Peirce College!
