New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas will meet with disenfranchised ITT-Tech students Monday evening to discuss their options for discharging federal student loans in the wake of the school’s shutdown.
The meeting, open to all current students and alumni of the for-profit school, will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the New Mexico Bar Center, 5121 Masthead Dr. NE, which is Journal Center northwest of San Antonio Drive and Interstate 25.
“The purpose of these sessions is to educate former ITT students about the circumstances surrounding the closure, possible avenues for discharging their federal student loan debt, as well as to provide information about other educational programs that might accept transfer credits from ITT and what actions the Office of the Attorney General may be considering,” according to a statement from Balderas’ office.
“I am asking all former ITT Tech students who were working on a degree at the time of the closure to meet with our office so we can assist them in understanding all of their options. Hard working New Mexicans deserve better than to be left out in the cold by a giant, for-profit college that drove them into unnecessary debt.” Balderas said.
