The Community College of Philadelphia opens its arms to students who fell victim to the sudden closure of a popular for-profit institution.
“I was really devastated when I heard the schools were closing. I was, like what are we going to do?” said 55-year-old Miriam Ferrar from Philadelphia.
She says she was about to start her second semester at ITT when she got word the school was closed.
But she’s happy CCP has opened their doors.
“I’m glad we had the opportunity to come down here, because someone is accepting our transfer credits. I feel good because they didn’t have to, they already have a campus full of students and I just thought it was great that they would welcome us to come,” said Ferrar.
On Tuesday, CCP held an open house for former ITT tech students like Miriam.
