At first, I thought this school was pretty good. Students, like myself, were pretty cool to talk to and the teachers seemed to know what they were doing. At least, that's how it was during the first quarter. The second quarter came around and that's when things got sloppy. The Intro to Networking teacher was pretty much reading off of the slides, that were made in '07, not going into detail about some important aspects of the field selected, and when lab came around, he pretty much did all of the work for the students, not challenging their knowledge. When he spoke to the class, it was pretty much the students that were directly ahead of him he was speaking to. Everyone else had a hard time following what he was saying. The College Mathematics teacher did not know what he was doing. Every time I started to get the hang of his techniques, I was immediately thrown off as the teacher himself screwed up the whole equation, EVERY time. I was surprisingly passed by the teacher, near end of the quarter.. Which was odd to me. Honestly, the question surfaced to mind, that he HAD to pass me or he, himself, would get into trouble. After reading the past comments, turns out that's the truth. The teachers do not seem to have any teaching degrees either. I am only in my 3rd quarter, and am not going any further with ITT-Tech. By June, I will be free from them and going to a community college. I owe 9.5k and will be paying that off for the next couple of years. However, I'm glad I read the past reviews, or I would be in a greater amount of debt of at least 40k. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. They promise hands-on training, show you a high percentage of graduates, and persuade you that they can get you a job. All of those are false. Heed the warnings of your peers.

A little bit about myself I went to ITT Tech in Norfolk VA. when I was station there while enlisted in the Navy. I graduated Dec 2010 obtaining the Associates in Computer Networking Systems and again in June 2013 with the Bachelors in Information Systems Security. Which I'm looking forward to obtaining my Masters in Information Security and Assurance from Western Governors University. Oh yea they do accept credits from ITT Tech if looking to transfer, but unless you live at a location, it will all be online. Other schools do as well, you just have to do a little research on it and not take everyone's word on what they actually do not know. As I read a few statements made about debt. A few of my old high schools had linked up recently. Now we all had taken different educational and career paths. As for me, I went into the Military. My other high school classmates, all have Bachelor degrees and one also has a Masters. These three individuals all went to your regular traditional college, (Universities). I'm possibly the only one that actually works in my filed of study. As we was reminiscing about old times, the discussion lead to the bad heffa Sallie Mae a.k.a Navient, who majority of all students no matter where you go obtains loan(s) from. My conclusion as of now, to sum it all up. No matter where you go. If your not enrolling on a scholarships, grants or what have you. My biggest advise to you is to go ahead and get lubed up. Sallie Mae (Navient), is going to get you the long way no matter what. My debt even though I went to ITT Tech and graduated twice is around $65,000. No my high school buddies and one actually has a Masters degree. Theirs is more than that and went to your traditional college or Universities (University of Tennesee, Western Kentucky University, University of Louisville, and one went to school in Ohio). Just like some people that don't see color. Sallie Mae doesn't accreditation the either For Profit or not, they gonna get theirs.

I have to admit that when I started at ITT I was skeptical based on peoples reviews. However, I attended while I worked and still managed to graduate with honors and the Career Services at the Columbus branch goes above and beyond to help students with their career goals. Again I urge students to do there own research its all in what you make of it and what you put in is what you get out.

Do not go to this school for anything, I was in the nursing program for a year and a half and I worked my ass off to only fail twice in med-surg, I attended in Indiana. I am not a traditional student a bit older, this was a dream come true to finally fulfill my dream. Itt Tech took advantage of so many un expecting students making them think they were accredited. The state stepped in and put all Itt tech nursing programs on probation because the pass rates were poor. please, please investigate your school choice and do not get sucked into something so worthless as I did.

I WAS currently attending ITT-Tech Houston, Tx! Before I start I just wanted to say that this is not the place for everyone. If you want to go for the experience? Go ahead, but be warned! This place isn't what they are cut out for everything they promised. YOU are just a starting number for them to further their paycheck. Every instructor that I had was not qualified to "teach" nor to really had that potential to teach a legitimate class. Believe me, I was extremely happy to be enrolled at first, but after sitting in my first class? I noticed that most of my instructors do not have a teaching profession and some doesn't seem to understand what they are teaching about. It is a great school to get the feel of how college is, but I have to honestly say, it's not the legit feel of a REAL college. IF you are SERIOUS about your education?? Save money or try investing in a better (or real) college that will be able to transfer your credits. I for one learn that the hard way and now I have a huge debt on my head that will take me awhile to pay off. Think really hard before attending this school because after you made up your mind and visited their school? Not only will they "close the deal", but your interest will be visualized differently, just remember that. Some may walk out with a CAREER job and MOST will not. A lot of career jobs they will not accept you if they see you have ITT on your resume due to the knowledge they have about ITT. Please DO take each comment into consideration and do your research. However? If you are truly curious and already have your mind set to enroll to ITT? I'm not stopping you, but please do take consideration and you're already warned by many.

If you are serious about your education, then don’t attend this campus? I can’t speak for all of their schools, because I didn’t go to them. I would review this one, far as buildings go, location isn’t bad. Far as the administration on the education side, there seems to be no leadership. I had no issues with the finance, or the registration of classes. The most disappointing part of my experiences at that school was the accountability factor. Almost all of the teachers there don’t have a teaching degree. They may have some years in their particular field, but that shouldn’t qualify you to teach. Nobody holds the teachers accountable for not having a lesson plan prepared, some don’t even look at the lesson until they walk in the doors to “teach”. Because it’s a school for profit too many students are just passed alone to the next semester to keep money coming in. And the students who suffer are the ones serious about learning. I spent way too many hours in class, in what were consider my core subjects in computer technology, because the teacher had to help do basic stuff. Like figuring out where a student saved a file, or how to even use Microsoft Word. I say this as a student who upon leaving earned a 3.9 GPA, so this isn’t coming from a poor student. I finally had enough of poor teaching, terrible mismanagement from the administration. I left after a year, to attend a school that gives you an education not a piece of paper when you graduate. So in closing I reiterate, if you want a school who will just pass you without much effort then this is the place for you. If you are like me and want an education, something of value in the work place, and where teachers are serious about the assignments and what is taught, then don’t go to this school. Sincerely, a disappointed student.

This school was awful I am very good with computers and work well with others. This school did not make any sense, The work was unnecessarily hard, the teachers either gave me attitude or didn't know what they were talking about. In order for me to get a job in Chicago I had to delete the school from my resume. At one interview an employer said he would never hire those from itt tech because they do not support any current technology. I am stuck with a $13000 bill that has only diminished my opportunity in a big city. I am telling anyone that reads these reviews please take every review into consideration.

The Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies (ASPLS) IS NOT ABA APPROVED in California. Therefore and although I have spend time and money on a "degree" it is not worth the paper it was printed on.

That doesn't seem like a reason for this program to be a "Waste of Money"...unless ITT tech lied and told you that their paralegal studies degree was ABA approved in California? what about the course work? class sizes? teachers?

a 1 min google search yielded a comprehensive list of California ABA approved schools...maybe you can take some responsibility in this case:

I graduated from the ITT South Bend campus in 2014. I found my instructors very knowledgeable and very helpful! Career services spent many hours prepping me and then helping me find my first Real a Career upon my successful graduation. I would highly recommend ITT tech to anyone that would benefit from a Hands On Training approach to their education!

Worst College Ever!!

I'm about to graduate from ITT Tech and I'm noticing that this school is literally nothing but a selfish piece of shit. Not only have I found out that I owe the school thousands of dollars for a loan I don't remember signing up for in the beginning, but I'm also seeing that most other schools I've applied to, to get my BS won't take my credits. My chairman had to recommend one college that wouldn't be stealing money out of my pockets just so I could finish my degree. The school's staff in the main office is nothing but a bunch of dicks that don't want to help you when it comes to paying back the schools temporary loan. I just want to put out there to people that are thinking about attending ITT Tech. Please don't. Save your money and go to a better college that actually has transferable credits and where you probably won't have to pay the school back any money.
