Md. Coalition Warns of For-Profit College Risks

Nakia Trezevant spent a year studying information technology at ITT Technical Institute in Owings Mills. She said she has nothing to show for it but $12,000 in debt.

The for-profit educational firm, which had two campuses in Maryland, shut down in September 2016 after the U.S. Department of Education prohibited it from enrolling any new students who used federal financial aid. The education department found the institute was out of compliance with accreditation standards during a period of increased scrutiny of these for-profit institutions.
