Is Your School in Danger of Closing Like ITT? Check This List.

Written by Steve Rhode

Recently ITT Tech decided to close down after the Department of Education required a higher deposit from them to help protect against student loan losses. Some of the issues that led to this surrounded accreditation issues ITT Tech was facing.

The Department of Education publishes a listing of schools that have been placed on Heightened Cash Monitoring and sparked their attention or concern.
cy
The Department of Education says schools may be placed on these lists “as a result of compliance issues including but not limited to accreditation issues, late or missing annual financial statements and/or audits, outstanding liabilities, denial of re-certifications, concern around the school’s administrative capabilities, concern around a schools’ financial responsibility, and possibly severe findings uncovered during a program review.”

The listings below are NOT an indication that the school is immediately going out of business like ITT Tech did but their presence on the list should serve as an alert that the school is dealing with issues that could lead to impacting your future ability to be eligible for federal student loans and it is possible the school may elect a radical choice like ITT Tech did if they are unable to resolve their issues with the Department of Education.

The list below is as of June 1, 2016.

This list includes schools that no longer receives funds under the Advance Payment Method. After a school on HCM2 makes disbursements to students from its own institutional funds, a Reimbursement Payment Request must be submitted for those funds to the Department.
