Too many Complaints and little is done...
Electronics - March 3, 2016
I read and hear complaints all the time about this school, I have attended ITT Tech since 2009 and graduated in 2011. Three months before graduation I was hired in the oilfield business. I was happy and successful with the company until the oil prices started dropping. The kids that complain are either fresh out of school and trying to get things done the easiest and fastest way as possible. As others have mentioned before you get what you put in and that is true because of ITT Tech's help after graduation they still help you find a job if you need the assistance. Now I am back taking my Information Technology Course for BS degree and very happy. They have good staff and good facilities and instead of talking bad about a school and how much you are going to owe when done focus on what is important your future. Nothing in this life is free and you will get a bill from loan departments and that is normal and its called with it. YOU MAKE YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE THERE, DONT LET NO ONE MAKE THEM FOR YOU.

Stay away from ITT
Information System Security - November 6, 2015
I went to ITT out of High School in 09. Had to drop out before semester started because of work. Now that I'm trying to go to finish my degree at another college they don't want to release my transcripts. I've been paying my federal student loans on time for the last 5 years owing $11k. I tried enrolling again but I non of the credits are accepted even through them. This is just ridiculous. Stay away. Go to a community college for free then finish your BA somewhere else. This place is a scam. I can't believe the government will even give you loans for this place. Look at their drop out rate and how much students owe to for-profit schools if you don't believe me. Now I have to figure out how to get my transcripts released.

You get out what you put in.
Electronics - September 13, 2014
Graduated in 2001 with Electronics Engineering degree. I was 40 yrs old when I attended. ITT placed me into 1 job while I was enrolled, and I found 3 other jobs on my own. I wanted as much experience as I could get before I graduated. Upon completion, I had 3 job offers of 30k+. One in oil and gas, one in semiconductor, and one in manufacturing and service. I took the manufacturing and service job and am still employed 14 yrs. later. Could ITT be better? Maybe, but I was very happy with my instructors, courses, material, and support. I can't stress enough that you will get out exactly what you put in.

Get Real
Criminal Justice - March 12, 2013
I have read many opinions about ITT. I am a fourth quarter student at the Springfield IL. The Springfield campus is a new campus, it started classes in Feb. of 2012. I have found that some of the reviews that I have read are partially true. ITT does enroll students that would not be considered even at most community colleges; it is my feeling that as a business of course they enroll everyone that they can. It is the challenge of ITT to its instructors and tutors to help bring the sub-par up to speed. In my experience at ITT my instructors have been top-notch. My CJ instructors are fulltime employees in the field, and have a passion to impart their knowledge and skills to us. I have done my own research, I contacted employers in my field that are based where an ITT has been established for a while. Most of the employers that I contacted told me that a degree from ITT in my field is the same to them as a degree from any of the local community colleges. I see all the complaints about not finding work in the field; get real. Try applying realistic expectations on yourself and others. If you cant find a job in your field locally, try a national search, or you did not apply yourself and got bad grades and who would want you? I think that if you are looking for individual attention, and someone to care if you show up and graduate ITT is a place that could work for you. The money is what it is, if you dont like it, go somewhere that has two hundred students in a class, and the instructors will never know your name.

Do your own legwork, find your own job
Itt tech, Breckinridge school of nursing - February 3, 2013
I see the negative reviews, I beleive you get back what you put into your education. Yes, they are expensive, but you are not just another number! The classes are much smaller than state schools, therefore, you get more individualized education. Furthermore, I see that the students are upset that their are no jobs available to them after graduation. Well, guess what? Do your own legwork, find your own job, why are you relying on others to find you work? I am in the nursing class in Tampa, I went to USF where I got my BA in Psy. I had over 2oo people in my class, and my instructer never had time to see us for tutoring or any concerns that we had with the class. Moreover, the state schools don't find employment for the graduates either, they have to find their own. Stop playing blame game and find your own jobs. The 54,000 education is well worth all the attention I get from my teachers, and tutors in the school.

IT NETWORKING - January 23, 2013
I started attending ITT Cordova TN in 9/11/11. I was taking night classes, but they kept enrolling me in Saturday classes. I kept telling them NO, NO, NO and dropped them. After I had done this 10 TIMES the SH***Y DEAN advised me over the phone that I could not come back to ITT EVER!!!! I recently TRIED to transfer to Stayer. When getting my transcripts I was advised I OWE THE SCHOOL 6000.00 not finical aide!! (I was awarded 5,500.) I also owe 17,000.00 in student loans from attending ITT. I can’t get my OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS until I pay ITT the full balance. WTF????? NONE OF MY 36 CREDITS 36 WILL TRANSFER ANYWHERE WITH OUT OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS!!!! I will have to start over if I attend Stayer!!! I never received a notice I owed this money!! NEVER RECEIVED A BILL!!! They said the balance would not be owed till I graduated!! So I would not have been able to graduation until I paid off the balance!! I’m sure it would have been more if I stayed the full 2 years! I am taking the semester off to figure out what to do!!

ITT Revies
Electronics - October 22, 2012
I attended ITT in Portland Oregon back in 1998. I had no issues with this school and graduated with honors while working full time.I think the school was fair, and understanding of this situation. While I will agree that this school will accept anyone willing to pay, I'll make the argument of why shouldn't they? Let's face it, many people who walk through their doors aren't going to get accepted into a "real" University. So, at least schools like this exist for people who have some desire to continue their education and attend college. The class started out with 30 students and only 15 graduated. Lazy people, mostly. I was a little older and was previous NAVY, so I maybe took it a little more seriously. Plus, I am not a big fan of starting things and not finishing. Was the school hard? Honestly, there were some things that were difficult for me, Math / Physics/ Computer languages were challenging for me. People did fail classes so it was not like some reviews I've seen where you could show up and sleep through class and pass. Not true, not in Portland anyway. I struggled with Physics and the teacher worked with me after class. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Only idiots thing they know everything. ;) I saw some students learn some amazing skills at this school. You really will get out what you put in. I thought the classes were well done, the teachers were good and helpful. I had a really great time at the school actually. I have been working in Semi-conductors ever since I left. No one has frowned upon my ITT degree as if were some sort of joke. That is the stuff of snobbery and elitism. Work hard for your employer, and it won't matter where you came from. That is the real world. We all have seen idiots from "good schools" and we have seen hard working, great people without degrees. But the world is changing and a degree is necessary to even get looked at for employment these days. Sucks, I know, but it is what it is. My advice, for what it's worth. Get a job anywhere, AND go to school. You can do it. I went to ITT (9-3) in the day and worked nights (4-mid). It was tiring but it went fast. My better advice: Since the reality of snobbery and elitism exists (although I haven't personally experienced it)...and all this accreditation stuff. IF you can go to a state school instead of ITT UoP or whatever, do it. If you cannot for whatever reason, (GED, drop out) then, I think, ITT UoP etc, are decent and really the only alternatives. A friend of mine recently went to ITT's nursing program and got a job at Vanderbilt in Nashville. So it wasn't frowned upon there. Here is the thing that does suck about ITT. The credits you earn don't really mean much to anyone if you want to go on and get your Bachelors degree. Keep that in mind. Some schools will accept them, many wont, do your research. I was young at the time and they just said they are accredited, and they are, and that was good enough for me. You have to look at who will accept that accreditation if you want to continue on. Here I am 15 years later, trying to get my bachelors and because I went to ITT my options are limited, BUT I do have options! I do not feel I was somehow ripped off or scammed at ITT. Just ask the right questions. Be prepared and have a plan. Don't give up. Education is important. If you screwed up in the past or don't have the means to go to a big university, you have options. Look into trade schools as well. Good Luck!

do not go here
IT NETWORKING - September 17, 2012
I received my associate degree there I had a ok time, there were a lot more of students and staff during this time some of the teachers where clueless to the programs and some teacher had very thick accents and they had the nerve to be teaching math or English why…… but then I decided to continue to get my bachelors that was a big mistake. They let all the good teachers go, we were stuck with some of the stupid teachers I ever seen one teacher would be in his pants playing with his self while giving a lecture smh… then some would run their own program nothing to do with itt cause they said itt course was out of date or out of touch with the real world and let’s not talk about career services. THAT’S THE BIGGEST JOKE OF ITT TECH. the best career services person left after my associate and I never received anything about a job smh I ask one day they told me I have not graduated yet I told them I have an associates from here.. O we need to update our information….. Another long story I would tell anyone not to go there don’t waste your money or time…..

Complete ripoff. The epitome of ineptitude
IT NETWORKING - May 29, 2012
It became quite obvious that I made a serious mistake after attending this joke of a school after one week. They will enroll anybody for the money. I encountered one mistake after another by the administration. They didn't even have their own IT person on staff for the for the few weeks I was there! It is my opinion that ITT is nothing less than a front for white collar criminals preying on people who are tying to get a legitimate education to improve their lives. SHAME ON ITT!!! They should be closed down and prosecuted.

I went into ITT Tech to get information about their programs, walked out enrolled in classed. They really know who to sell you. My salesman has multiple DWI's. The financial aid saleswomen convienced me to sign papers for a bachelors degree, when I was only going for an associates, she said their associates degree wasn't set up yet and they would change it very soon. I was even told at the end of the degree I would have to pay $3,000 dollars every semester out of my pocket, because $80,000 wasn't enough to cover it. I really thought this was going to be a good school. I had just got married and was pregnant. All I wanted was a better life for my family. They introduced me to the dean, he would do nothing but say how much fun we were gonna have and how much pizza were gonna have. The second class we got some books and were to do an assignment out of the book, the teacher says "when you're finished tear the page out and turn it in" I thought tear the page out, what is this kindergarden. The dean was telling us not to look the school up on this one website, because it was full of false information( I can't remember which one) so when I got home I searched and found these horrible posting and realized that was happening to me. The next day I took some of my books in and told them I was done( the others I didn't have yet, apparently this happens alot) they asked why I was quitting, I explained why and the dean and every salesperson there tried everything to get me to not believe those things. The dean talked to for over an hour trying to get me to change my mind, when he finally realized I wasn't giving in he told me to write a statement, giving reason for leaving.  When I handed him the paper he said thats all I need, bye. Thank goodness I was able to catch everything before they could rip me out of $80,000. They cancelled all loans, probably because they didn't recieve the money yet. After I dropped they told me I would owe nothing. to this day I don't, but I expect they will try some way to get money from me.

I am a student at ITT the only negative that i have experienced is the clowns that are only there to be noticed. They sit in the class room and spew their expletives, and garbage. I have considered dropping because of the noisy environment, it is very disrespectful to those who are there to get the most out of the program. Other than that, the instructors are very good, and the courses are up to date. Just recently a major software company came through conducting interviews with third quarter students offering internships, how cool is that?

To all of the people on here complaining about ITT, get over yourself.

1)More than half of you have bad spelling, grammar, and language issues which goes to show how smart you are in the first place.

2)Before you attend a college anywhere, you should do research and make sure you know what it is that you're getting into. ITT makes you sign off on a ton of enrollenment paperwork and your enrollment agreement contains the total sum of your tuition there, if you didnt like the amount then you should have never signed the paper in the first place.

3)Alot of you are talking about how you dropped out and now owe a ton of money, maybe you shouldnt have just walked away.If you had read the enrollment agreement in the first place then you would have know that as soon as you leave and/or graduate that you were responsible for the tuition, its not a free ride.

4)To those complaining about ITT's job placement, cry me a river on that one. They never said that they would GET YOU A JOB, all they do is help you look for one, this requires effort on your part as well. 

To everyone, ITT is not the best college but it is what you make of it and obviously alot of these people didnt make anything of it and probably wont make anything of thierselves either.

I "enrolled" at Itt Tech two years ago.  I was approved for $20K in Financial Aide and $20K in student loans.  After only 6 weeks and $6,000 in disbursed loans, I quit.  Why?  Because getting Math problems such as "there are 28 students in a class and 24 of them are female, what is the ration of women to men", I had had enough.  My 8 yr old can do that math problem!!! (oh and that WAS THE ONLY QUESTION for the homework!)  they told me on the phone credits transfer, and a few weeks later I saw a commercial and saw the fine print that said "not all credits may transfer".  I did a little quick research and promptly quit.   A few months later I enrolled at Herkimer County for an Associates in Cyber Security and because I'm a NY resident I get 100% financial aid.  NO LOANS!  So for those of you considering a FOR PROFIT college, try instead a community college, and apply for state and federal aide.  You're MUCH better off!

I am currently a student at ITT. I find it to be a very well structured and educational school. The classes are tough and can be hard to those thinking online classes are easier for you to get a degree. Well that is utterly wrong in the first place. Online learning is not a free ride easy pass to a degree. Studies have actually found that online classes are actually harder than regular college. So if you are not willing to put forth that effort than choose a different program. It is not like they lie to you about prices they tell you up front $426 per credit. So if your associates degree is 96 credits, well then yes you will pay 41,000 or so. You can sign or not sign. I am very pleased with this school. My grades are exceptional, the teachers are very responsive and fair. So I am putting a thumbs up to ITT. And I plan to stay there for my bachelors and masters.

ITT is what you make of it. Everyone complains about the money, yes, it is expensive.  What most of you do not understand is they are not "swindling" anyone out of money.  You know from the time you start, as long as you are smart enough to ask, how much your degree is going to be.  ITT is easier than traditional schoosl and I believe that is why many people go there.  It gives people that could not usually cut it at a regular university or community college a chance.  Their system is set up nice too.  2 years in and out.  I attended Community colleges and universities and I am now goin to ITT.  I already have an associates degress from a community college and I have to say i like ITT.  It is all what you make of it.  Just like anything there are critics.  I would definitely recommend ITT to anyone who needs that extra help or just wants to get a degree.  I am going for CNS and I currently work as an IT Junior Administrator and I learn new exciting stuff every class.  Maybe instead of focusing on the negative all of you nay-sayers need to pay attention and get the education they are offering.

Thinks and do research before going to ITT Tech.. Do your homework.. THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to look at when selecting a college is how it is accredited.. Not all employers, but most of them look at this as very important.. ITT Tech is NATIONALLY accredited.. Yes, that may SOUND good, but it's NOT. Your college needs to be REGIONALLY accredited. Why? Because if you ever decide to transfer to a local or major state university most likely these colleges WILL NOT accept anything from ITT Tech or other nationally accredited colleges..That means you will have to start all over again. All state colleges and universities are regionally accredited. Also some employers, who know what they are looking at, will take this into consideration as well. 
Don’t get me wrong here. Nationally accreditation is legitimate, but is not nearly as widely accepted as regional accreditation. 
Here is a list.. Research your college and make sure it is accredited with one of these agencies. No it does not matter where you live while taking courses online and what region the college is accredited in.

While my ITT campus is fairly new, I can relate to many of the critics.  I feel as though I am cheated out of my education after I have done all my research, but I also feel that I was only there to get my piece of paper.  They were willing to work around my schedule and some of the instructors I have had were more than helpful.  They were all legitimate teachers and they have or have had real-life experience in the field.

I can't say for everybody, but for myself... it hasn't been as bad as I have thought and you can ask for a discount when you start...

You had some in there, but most SUNY schools have online degree programs.  Google the SuNY Learning Network.   Attend one in your own state so maybe you qualify for state aid as well as federal.  :)

I am a recent graduate from ITT Tech. I graduated with an associates and bachelor's degree in criminal justice. The courses and the instructors were very tough but in the end it was worth it. I graduated with honors and an invitation to national honor society. I have also found that while searching for a master's program my credits will transfer.

THIS was my homework for the 9th week of class: ONE problem, that was IT.  THIS is what I was going to pay $20,000 for ?????????  I had harder math in 6th grade--- 30 years ago! 

Solve the problem shown below. Submit your solution showing your work to your instructor in a Word document.
You drive 15 miles each way to go to work. Your car gets 18 miles per gallon and gasoline in your town costs $2.50 per gallon. How much money will it cost you to get to and from work for one five-day work week? (Hint: Check your units.) 
15 + 15 = 30 miles a day
30 miles X 5 days = 150 miles weekly
150 miles / 18mpg = 8.33 gallon of gas used.
8.33 gallons of gas used X $2.50/gal = $20.75 worth of gas.

Horrible School,  Rip off to Veterans.  I wasted 2 semesters and the tax payers wasted $11,000 dollars. 
The first semester was the so called fluff classes.  The second semester for NSA ( Networking) was a joke. You actually spend time looking at youtube videos and the English comp is a joke as well. No classes are transferable and when you decide you want out they charge you hundreds of dollars for 'Administration fees' which YOU have to pay , not the VA.  DO NOT GO THERE.

This school is a joke. I got accepted and got into the nursing program. We were allowed to get c's at this time. My last two quarters to go they up and changed our grades to where you had to get a b. I ended up failing my last quarter twice and they will not let me back into the program. They are complete asholes and don't care about ou one bit. They do whatever they please and they only want your money. Do not go to this school. It is the biggest mistake of your life. I'm going to get a lawyer and go after this school

ITT is a joke, no really, it's a joke. Even in the commercials it clearly states "credits do not transfer." Why go to a place where the credits you earn are not going to transfer to another university. Any school that tells you that the credits are not going to transfer, you'll probably want to go somewhere else.

I am a current itt-tech student and i find it to be a good school now i will say though there are some classes i could have done without and some of the people there only attended the school because they thought it would be fun because they saw the commercials. There is one good thing to the retards attending the school at the same time i do, i am top of my class which is something i thought i would never say.

It is easy to complain and point the finger at somebody else. What I have seen are students that are a joke. It seems like the silver platter generation. I have listened to students complain, but when I asked them if they opened the book it was "no". 
ITT Technical Institute is a flat learning model. You get out of it what you stick in it. Complaining is easy. Students simply don't do their work and the school adapts to the class level. Incompetent students that the school still tries to help further, because they pay for that. I did do the work and I did ask the questions and I did get my answers.
Most complaints are generated by self-incompetence.

I wish I would have listened to my brother when he told me not to attend ITT Tech. He graduated in 2004 and had a very hard time getting a job. He eventually found a great job through a friend. He has friends in high positions and they let him know that they really don't like hiring people from ITT because they give degrees to everyone. In fact, they even made the news in my city when a student submitted a recipe and received an "A" with a "Good Job" comment.

My problems with ITT Tech occurred quickly. I first enrolled in August of 2009, but due to a family emergency I had to drop...way before classes started. I re enrolled in December and noticed right away that you will be given an "A" no matter what kind of work you turn in. After three months of utter crap I decided to dropout and attend another school. Right before I did I found out that they never turned in my financial aid papers on top of that they kept my Pell Grant from August. They never sent it back like they were suppose to do. I contacted the Dept of Education and they said what ITT Tech did was illegal. That's not the worse of it, when I called to drop out the woman was extremely angry and unprofessional. I made sure that I was officially dropped out and signed at a different school and thank heavens I did because two weeks later after I was officially dropped from the school. I found out that they tried to take a loan out under my name. If I hadn't signed up at a different school when I did..they would have gotten away with it. Also if you're thinking about enrolling at ITT Tech do a little searching on the web because many of their campuses have been raided!

I just visited ITT Tech campus located in Springfield VA. The person I met was very nice and professional. However, if you listen to their presentation, there are a lot of red flags and if you do your research you will not fall for anything they tell you. One of the biggest red flag is when they tell you that your credits can not be transferred to any other educational institute. That tells me that they are not accredited. You can work hard as one of the comments below mentions and get your degree with very little money from community college. Once you have your associate degree, you can easily transfer to great university to complete your 4 yrs study. True, that ITT offer condense program but also true that they might be a HUGE SCAM!! My suggestion is do your research before enrolling so you don't have anything to regret later on. I am going to community college and will transfer to one of many universities in our area to get my education. NO REGRETS!!

RE:Victim 1,000,000 post,
Basically the same thing happened to me as well. A few weeks ago I went in with my son to get information etc, next thing I know my son is enrolled and I later found out they had put a loan in MY name as the parent WITHOUT MY CONSENT.. All I signed was the parent demographics form because they stated he was a dependent til age 24.. Long story short, my son withdrew from itt after going only 0ne week and I am still trying to get this parent loan cancelled and the financial aid told me as far as my son went they'd back out any charges but I am still waiting on proof of that to happen.. I will contact my lawyer if this isn't resolved soon.. How can the school keep a parent plus loan when my son withdrew after a week? None of his student loans were even validated but I do recal my son calling one day while in the office with the financial aid asking if I rememembered the pin that was made while signing the demographics so I think she used a pin and is trying to say I approved this but again I was never even told about the loan or that I was even approved until several weeks AFTER these crooks had already a portion of that disbersed....  I will continue to fight this...

ITT Tech charged me 960 because they said I logged I to a for 39 days. I've never even seen there school, talked to a professor or read a book. The only thing I did was filled out the application to state what I want to major in.  They have turned it over to collections and prevented from graduating from my current school. Thank goodness my dean of students was also a victim of the scam. Don't Attend!!! Don't Attend!!!

When I first spoke with the reps at ITT they informed me that it wasn't difficult to drop if you absolutely had to, which it wasn't at all.  They get a ton of money out of you if you complete your program or if you drop. 
Think before you ever sign any paperwork.  Is $47K really worth it?  When you get out you will be working just to pay off your loans.  
From my experience the instructors were really nice and knew what they were talking about.  The problem arises when you have to drop after attending for 2 weeks (6 classes total)!  You are then paying for 50% of the quarter and that equates to roughly $3,600.00.  Ok, not the end of the world.  
What they neglect to tell you is if you drop that early on your loans are null and void and that they send your balance off to a collection agency.  If that balance isn't paid off in 3 months it will have a negative affect on your credit report and you will have that burdon for 7 years.  
Now I am going to be stuck with this negative mark for the next 7 years because I cannot afford to pay them roughly $1,200.00 per month. 
My advice to anyone thinking of enrolling really think about the cost.  You can go anywhere else and not have to pay that much money for an education.  They are extremely overpriced and the financial aid department that I delt with was giving me wrong information.

I got an electronics degree from ITT in 1985. At that time they did help me find my first job. They have never checked back since, but I do have a great job now (make close to 100k). But as stated here, it's what you put into it. I tried really hard to find the job I wanted and was probably lucky as well. I know of 3 others that went at the same time and I think they are all still working in electronics. Bottom line, I did get a degree which opened some doors for me. And yes, it was pretty expensive to get that paper but it has paid off.

College is what you make it! ITT is what college isn't? It's for ADULTS! If you don't want to come here, it's OK! If you want to come, we will work with you to get the education you need to get ahead in life. But, you must come here to learn, work, and grow! It will not be handed to you!

I will give you an excellent interpretation of ITT Tech and will tell you both the good and the bad. First the bad. Yes it is expensive and, yes, most would be better off going to a community college. However, let's remember that ITT Tech is a "for profit" college. It is expensive but also caters to the "adult" student meaning, generally speaking, these are individuals several years out of high school and want to learn a technical skill. A community college generally doesn't teach a technical skill in a condensed format. For those who approach with the desire to learn it is a good environment. For those who do NOT approach with the desire to learn then you post on this site how you were "ripped off". Yes, ITT Tech sometimes has a "carnival" atmosphere with Ice Cream nights, snacks occasionally in class, etc. but remember these are students who are not used to "structure" so sometimes we must create incentive for some of the students to come to class. Should ITT Tech HAVE to do this? Clearly not but, again, these are students who have been away from a school environment and have to get used to it again. Now for a quick comment about the classes. I enjoyed teaching there (and may again some day) and for the students that really wanted to learn I think they got what they desired. For those that didn't really want to learn then they post here. The part I didn't like was seeing students who did not come to class and did not seem to care. Why borrow the money they are borrowing and not go to class? I knew they didn't quite grasp what they were borrowing but you can't blame anyone but yourself. You want to be treated like an adult so I suggest you act like one. Read what you sign and talk to others. If you decide it is not for you then you shouldn't go. However, for those who have been away from school and maybe do not want to take the SAT or your family/work schedule is difficult to schedule traditional college classes around then ITT Tech is a decent alternative. I suggest community college first, get an AA, then transfer to a 4 year college. However, if you are a working adult and don't have 6 years to go to school part-time then ITT Tech can teach you a skill fairly quickly and allow you to have the confidence to enter the labor force. I enjoyed teaching at ITT Tech and am considering teaching again part-time. It is a great feeling to help a student stay motivated and excited to learn. Especially a student that you know maybe a year earlier had a bad family or work situation and now walks a little taller and prouder knowing that they can succeed if they only put their efforts in the right direction.

So I just got done with dealing with ITT. I was enrolled in the online program and after summer I was supposed to trasnfer to a campus. The problem here is that I was told all sorts of promises, and NONE of them were true. They even had me taking a 12 week course that wasnt pertinent the online degree program nor the campus program. I just recently went to University of Phoenix. It seem like the classes are more traditionally structured, but now I am completely skeptical of all online institutions..........

I would strongly advise you to not go to ITT TECH I graduated in 2004 from a campus in Houston, TX. And I can honestly say If I had known what I know now about that school and the actual job field I would have just went to a community college and received the same two year degree but only paid 3500 dollars for the whole program. Now I owe 35 grand and rising because I’m in school now pursing a bachelor’s degree and my loans are gaining interest. Now for all you guys saying you get what you put in to your education are correct but with ITT you don’t get much The software I used in the drafting and design courses was obsolete before I even graduated the only software that I could market myself knowing was AutoCAD they I heard now they are using Inventor which is good but still the school is horrible I worked hard when I was there and when I got out none of what I learned was useful I’m going to talk to a lawyer about this I would really like to sue them for the cost of the tuition. I had to start all the way over with my education because none of the credits were worth anything and on top of that I had to go back to school and pay to learn up to date software like solid works and Inventor just to get a job. PLEASE TAKE MY ADVICE DON”T GO TO ITT and if you are enrolled get out and go to a community college you will save thousands of dollars and get an overall better education. Traditional schooling is better then ITT schooling. I’m not a bitter EX graduate I just learned the hard way so I really want to help people make a wise decision don’t go to ITT if you do I promise you will regret it. Believe me I would not take the time out of my day to type this long  paragraph to make up a bunch of lies trust me I have more important things to do but I just happened find this blog and I read the comments and had to post my history with this school well I mean business.

@John although they are accredited by CHEA doesn't mean anything. The most important factor is are they regionally accredited, at the end of the day that's all that matters. BTW: if a class started with 38 students and ended with 7 I would find that to be a big problem.

ITT Tech is great school.  It is a very expensive school, but provides you with quality education.  ITT is accredited by CHEA, which is a national accrediting organization.  My class ended with 7 original students out of 38.  Those who complain about ITT are sure to be the dropouts.

There are lots of dropouts in plenty of colleges. People get in and think hey this is harder then i thought. If there would be a way to screen out the students that you know will drop out, before they start.. But that is profiling. All school are about money. Its the bottom line, but you do get a solid education, and if you want to excel past then don't stop at the associate degree. Get the bachelor degree.

My Hubby's best friend (B)attended this Campus for IT class and B has to do English Composition I &II. Last year the ECI and this semester-March2010 ECII. The class is online class. Apparently, the lecturer didn't give any good instruction for doing the homework, just simply give the  book (Dialogue) to read and submit the homework every week. My hubby got the book from B as B needs help to do the homework. My hubby said the book is a crap thing... so I wonder is it only the book? or the lecturer? or the whole school? (besides B said that the lecturer didn't give specific information for the homework and nowhere to ask)

I used to teach for ITT Tech.  Although the courses are solid, and instructors put forth effort, the atmosphere is terrible.  They repeatedly have a carnival like setting where they have popcorn nights, serve ice cream, etc.  The administration was more concerned with how long students were kept in class.  Quantity over quality.  I had some good students, but many that were not so good.  I was encouraged to pass them (they are customers).

I would not recommend this place to family, friends, or even someone asking me about getting an education.

Sorry, but that's the truth.

Im currently in ITT TECH, I have to say they have not worked with my schedule at all, and because of this my associates has extended 1 quarter on my associates degree. The knowledge is good at time but to be honest you have to go beyond the school to get ahead. Also ass far as money goes, ITS A BUISNESS not a charity. you are a costumer when you walk in the door but as soon as your in you are a number. Dont expect them to bend backwards for you just get your degree and find your way to the working field. If you want extra you will have to put it some more time. Its not the best in the nation but it will help get your foot in the door.

HORRRRRRRIBLE SCHOOL!!!! I was a student there back in 2004-2005 and i was 19 at the time. IF I would have known then what i know now there is no way in hell that I would be going to this school now. THEY are not REGIONALLY accredited. There credits do not transfer. They are a profit school and are only interested in your money. I was there for a year and my federal aid totals $23,000...for a YEAR. I'm only starting to look into all of this stuff now with this school and only starting to realize now how disgusting this place is. but 23,000 dollars! WTF and guess who it's through...our gooooood friends SALLIE MAE!!!!! they are another story! STAY AWAY FROM ITT TECH! you will have nothing but finacial issues in the long run and won't have ANYTHING to show for what you spent all that money on.

Remember, ITT TECH runs by used car salesmen and the most horrible management practices, most immoral and unethical they violate state and federal laws but they have the best lawyers on payroll (will get them out of any Contravention most of the time) I filed complaints with the attorney general and the Better Business Bureau and they both told me they couldn't do anything.
I filed complaints with the City Officials and after investigating they found no fault with ITT TECH. ITT is surely paying off any and every agency that could get them in troubles.
Do not forget at ITT TECH you are not a student you are only a "start number". ITT TEC is the nastiest business on earth, it’s not a school, and this institute runs by animals the only concern of these animals in the HQ is to increase profits and do not care about students or education.
But I did find some help with the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, please send your complains to

This is our last hope.

Met with Itt advisor this morning, Also spent about 3 hours researching additional reviews on ITT. What i believe is the negative things said about this school and programs are people who expected to walk in get a degree and get a job. They did the bare minimum because that was all they needed to do for the degree, I'm intrested in learning something. I've heard alot from IT workers in the past that Itt has a great computer knowledge. It's a risk and i'm scared but i believe you get what you put in, I've researched many schools for technology and they seem to cover a broad area, Not specialized like ITT does. I'm going through with it, I hope all is well. I'll write back after a while about my experience.
