Editor note: Story has been updated to include information about Collin College.

ITT Technical Institute—which has a total of 10 Texas campuses located in Arlington, Austin, DeSoto, Houston, Richardson, San Antonio and Waco—announced Tuesday it will be ceasing operations at all of its U.S. campuses permanently.

"It is with profound regret that we must report that ITT Educational Services Inc. will discontinue academic operations at all of its ITT Technical Institutes permanently after approximately 50 years of continuous service,” ITT Educational Services said in a news release Tuesday morning. “The actions of and sanctions from the U.S. Department of Education have forced us to cease operations […], and we will not be offering our September quarter.”

According to the release, the company has eliminated the positions of the majority of their roughly 8,000 employees, and hundreds of thousands of current students and alumni will be negatively affected. Almost 43,000 students were enrolled at the institute before the announcement.

Collin College has created special hotlines to help displaced ITT students in figuring out their next steps.

The college will make special arrangements to streamline admissions, advising and financial aid applications. Although the fall semester is already in session, enrollment is still open for classes that start later in the semester. Applications are open for the wintermester, which begins Dec. 12, and students can also apply to attend Collin College in the spring, summer or fall of 2017.

For admissions and advising, students can call 972-377-1088 or email ITTstudents@collin.edu. For financial aid and veterans, students can call 972-758-3842 or email apixley@collin.edu.
