While the sudden closing of ITT Tech has left many students stranded, Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) has several avenues for assistance.  LFCC has programs where credits earned at ITT Tech can be used to move forward in specific degree or certificate programs. 

First, students can go to lfcc.edu/learn-how-lfcc-can-help-you-continue-your-education/ for links to all LFCC programs and to request more information.

Second, students can explore programs that will allow them to build on their experiences through LFCC’s competency-based education (CBE) programs. 

Both the free resource portal at KnowledgeToWork.com and LFCC’s competency-based education (CBE) programs allow ITT Tech students to build on their knowledge from previous coursework.

“LFCC offers more affordable options, and we are held to the highest standards of accreditation,” explains Dr. Cheryl Thompson-Stacy, LFCC President.   “I encourage students from ITT Tech to take a closer look at all of LFCC’s programs, especially Knowledge to Work.  This program focuses on competencies, not credits.  Show us what you have learned, and you can continue to move forward with your educational goals.”

Because CBE does not focus on credit hours attained but on demonstrated competencies, skills learned by former ITT Tech students can transfer directly into competencies for cybersecurity, networking, health information management, and administrative support technology. 

Individuals can begin working in the portal, which has competencies, personalized learning plans, and open educational resources (OER) available to anyone at no cost. They can use the portal and its digital learning resources to document competencies and progress into new learning, without sitting in a classroom.

Students ready to attain a credential from LFCC can then work with a success coach to get their competencies confirmed and move forward in a credentialed program.  New learning is flexibly paced and online. Success coaches are also available to help with academic support, progress monitoring, job search, and resume building.

The KnowledgeToWork.com portal is funded in part by a TAACCCT grant from the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration. For more information, visit the Knowledge to Work website at: http://knowledgetowork.com or call (540) 868-9744.
