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.

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.

6000.00 OWED TO ITT??? LEAVING SCHOOL CANT GET TRANSCRIPTS!!!!!!
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!!

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.

It's a scam!
IT NETWORKING - January 29, 2012
I graduated from the St. Rose, LA (New Orleans) "campus" in 02. I learned NOTHING from this "school". I'm still paying on my student loans and work in the same industry I did before ITT. This company is strictly set up to defraud the Federal Govt. out of Pell grant and Stafford loan money. One instructor angrily quit while I was there and spread word throughout the student body how useless the place was. We then all received a letter from the dean denying his assertions. So if you're considering ITT, DON'T DO IT!
