Degree: Electronics
Graduation Year: 2007

Instead of complaining about just the negatives of this school, I will give a review from a person who actually finished a degree at this school. First, the good. I learned a lot from the teachers here, who ALL came from the field in which they were teaching. The teachers do care about the students who put forth effort in their education. It is not difficult school if you read your text, do your homework, and do the extra work in the classes. The large number of people who dropped out of class, as mentioned in other reviews, were people who did not really try. They would skip class, not ask questions, and complain about everything like the one star reviews here. I did not get a job in the specific field I was looking into from this degree, but my education here did lead me into a very well paying job that is taking care of me and my family, so I am very appreciative of the education I received at this school. Now the bad. Yes they are accredited, but they never tell you that if you tried to transfer your credits to another school that 99% of the schools out there won't take them. Granted they are very specific field classes that no other school has, so it should have been a little more obvious. They are expensive. I finished after less than two years with $31K in loans, and that was with a quarter and a half of credits transferred from community college (they at least take other schools credits). I am still paying them off now in 2016. The "career center" was not helpful in the electronics field. The head of that part of the school changed probably three or four times while I was there and the only electronics jobs they ever posted was for soldering circuit boards for $12/hr. Sorry but I would never pay of $31k in loans with that job. For what is out there, in my area, for electronics, they were probably the best I could get. Like I said earlier, I learned a lot, graduated with high honors, and wouldn't change that experience. The staff was helpful in every way, and you can't fault them for doing the best with what they have to work with. I think the system of the school is flawed though because I even heard the teachers complain about how they were scheduled. It must be bad when teachers complain to their students about their working conditions. But what job is truly perfect in every way.

Degree: Video Game Design
Graduation Year: 2015

AMAZING COLLEGE!!!!! Was a great college that helped me with my path of being a video game designing. I would absolutely recommend this for future college students. I even got a masters degree for taking this college and exceeding it. I enjoyed my time here. Wish I can go here again!

Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2017

I currently attend the school and from what I see people do drop out frequently I started with 25 people in class now down to 11. The teaching methods do semi suck because there is a lot of work in this school. As for people saying its a scam I think they are simply the ones who could not handle the workload. This school is basically like life it's all about who you know and if you doing good then I'm pretty sure that they will actually help you. I mean why would they give someone a job who flunked half their classes?

Degree: Electronics
Graduation Year: 2015

I have read some horrible reviews on ITT, but let me start off by saying my class started off as over 50 students and ended with 8. I believe most of these bead reviews are from students who could not keep up with the difficult program. Sure you do not want to go to ITT for anything else other than technology related, after all this is why the school is in existence. I think a degree is any field other than technology is a waste of time and a big money maker for ITT. Many of my classmates were graduating students from well known universities and local colleges and they said the Electronics program at ITT was more difficult than their previous studies.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is full of crap!!!!!! Do not attend they lie steal, and cause you so many problems! they do not help the students what so ever!. some of the teachers here(NORFOLK VA) are so rude, Don't help the students are inconsiderate ect. I have been attending since 2014 and expect to graduate 2016 this year. I have had so many problems here its beyond frustrating! the career department cannot even help you find a job. The medical program is wack! They cannot even keep it afloat! I can go on and on about this particular campus but I will warn you DO NOT COME HERE YOU WILL WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!! WHICH THEY POCKET ANYWAY!

Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2005

Please whatever you do... do not go to this school. It will not make you more employable. It will ruin your life, seriously. Do yourself a favor and apply to your local community college, degrees there are a quarter of the price. Also for scale a 4 year university is 1/2 the price of itt. Itt-tech doesn't even have degrees. They have pieces of paper with the word degree on it, but that doesn't mean it's a degree. If I put the word potato on a duck, does it make it a potato? The facility does not care about their job or helping their students. The administration specializes in marked up predatory loan. The Army's Ranger school has a higher graduating class percentage than itt-tech's degree programs. They both have one thing in common to make you fail. If you don't believe me: check out John Oliver report on student loan debt. Also look at the lawsuits that are currently (and past) going against them. The only lesson that I learned is from itt-tech is to never trust a company. Stay away from factitious for-profit schools.

Degree: Automation Engineer Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 1995

My experience was positive. Prepared me very well for a career in factory automation. I have been employed from the day of graduation with great pay. I have enjoyed a great career and my skills seem to be always in demand. I attended the campus in Fort Wayne, IN.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2001

I went to ITT years ago. Although it was expensive I did gain a lot out of it. OUR graduating class started with 100+ students but 15 graduated in my class. I Am currently working in one of the most respected companies in the WIRELESS industry now, over 15 years. Straight out of school ITT placed me in a Military contracting company specializing in Microwave systems. I mention this because, what you get from a school, work or the military is what you put into it. We also had a teacher who was not cutting it, the students took action and requested a new teacher, the school responded and replaced the teacher immediately. I had hard time getting to class and was put on academic probation several times. BUT I managed to get my butt moving and get it together. Yes some companies don't recognize this school, In my opinion your resume, how you carry yourself, back up your skills and handle interviews nails you the job. It's you.

Degree: Computer Engineering
Graduation Year: 2009

THIS SCHOOL IS A SCAM!!!!! If you are thinking of paying for this school and attending.... Pick another school. ITT degrees are worthless. This school is a crap shoot. I wasted a lot of my time and money at this school, got no degree, and am still paying off the loans 6 years later.

Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2013

I started at itt with the hope i could avance my self in the world. I was rushed through admissions and told that they gaurenteed me a job making 60k a year. First week i had 6 different teachers for my classes because they quit. I am not 50k in debt and cant make more then 15 bucks an hour in the field. All these positive reviews should be questioned. If you want more info just google itt tech and you can find the multiple investigations that are being done and have been done. Itt is on advanced cash monitoring status and enrollment is dropping. They are publically traded on stock market as itt esi. So that being said they dont care and will lie and steal from you. Dont enroll and stay away.
