According to a press release, yesterday, U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly led 12 Senators in urging Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to assist students harmed by the 2016 closure of ITT Tech. A sizeable number of students have financial debt due to their education and many have ITT Tech credits with little market value, but it remains unclear if the Department of Education is using all available means to help affected students. That is why Donnelly and the Senators sent a letter to DeVos asking the Department of Education to take swift action. Many Hoosiers were harmed by the sudden closure of ITT Tech, including veterans. In 2017, Donnelly helped introduce and pass bipartisan legislation, signed into law last August, to assist student veterans enrolled at ITT Tech when it closed. It restored G.I. benefits for credits that did no transfer to the student’s new course of study.
