PHOENIX — Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Friday his office secured an agreement to provide 412 former Arizona ITT Tech students with almost $4 million in debt relief.

The settlement between the U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee and Student CU Connect CUSO, which offered nearly $189 million in loans for ITT students, is contingent on federal court approval of a similar settlement between CUSO and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

That approval was expected to be finalized Friday.

Arizona and other states alleged ITT offered students a temporary credit upon enrollment to be repaid before the next academic year, despite knowing many students would not be able to repay the loans within that time period.
