Nevada A.G. Says Former ITT Tech Students Will Get Some Relief

Attorney General Aaron D. Ford secured an agreement to obtain nearly $3.5 million in debt relief for 335 former ITT Tech students in Nevada as part of a settlement with 44 states and territories. Nationally, the multistate settlement will result in debt relief of more than $168 million for more than 18,000 former students. The settlement is with “Student CU Connect,” which offered loans to finance students’ tuition at ITT Tech, the failed for-profit college. AG Ford says students thought they were furthering their career, only to be subjected to abusive lending practices to pay for an education at a failed institution, and adds “Education should be the pathway to success, not a scam.”
