ITT Tech announced abruptly on September 6 that it was ceasing operations at all of its 130 U.S. campuses. Those included the Breckinridge School of Nursing and Health Sciences in Albuquerque.

ITT's closure was one of the largest closures of for-profit colleges in U.S. history and affected 40,000 students. It followed the U.S. Department of Education banning ITT from enrolling students who used federal financial aid.
