History of the National Institute of Technology

National Institute of Technology was originally a member of RETS Electronic Schools, which were established in Detroit in 1935. In 1978, the school was acquired by National Education Corporation, and in 1979 it was made a part of the Technical Schools group. In 1983, the name was changed to National Education Center® - National Institute of Technology Campus. In December 1995, Corinthian Colleges, Inc. acquired the school.

In February 1996, the main campus moved to Southfield, Michigan and was changed to National Institute of Technology in June of 1996. In January 2001, the Dearborn campus was added and the Detroit campus was added in November 2003. All became Everest Institute in October of 2006.
