GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Representatives from seven area colleges and universities will be meeting with former students of ITT Technical Institute to help them further their educations.

It is happening at The Kroc Center at 2500 S. Division Ave in Grand Rapids from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ITT Tech students will be able to learn if their credits can transfer to other schools, gather information about potential financial aid, and other helpful answers to their questions.

Representatives from the following schools will be attending the fair:

  • Aquinas College
  • Davenport University
  • Ferris State University
  • Calvin College
  • Grand Rapids Community College
  • Grand Valley State University
