ITT Technical Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (306)
I've been around this school for almost 4 years now and it has really taken off. Mr. Tshilombo is one of the greatest teacher's who tries to help the students in every way he can. which show that he really cares for the success of his students by "Creating a free private labs to teach students about how to use Arduino" and walking around showing positive support to all of his students. Way to go ITT
ITT Tech is a trade school. It's not, and probably never will be an accredited college. When you get your diploma and go out into the work force trying to land a job you will find out that employers do not look at ITT as a Univeristy and you will be told that they're not looking for applicants with a trade school diploma!! 4yrs and $30,000 later it was too late for me! I finally landed a job and Best buy repairing small laptops and TVs. That was over 20yrs ago. I've heard not much has changed at ITT except they offer more classes. I eventually went back and earned a real accredited bachelor degree from Devry University and that got me into the door a of a great company making a 6 figure income.
I recommend you stay FAR FAR away from this school..I wouldn't suggest it to even a person I hate..This school will lie to your face promising you all these things you achieve..the people there may be nice but personality can only get you so far..I signed up for this school with the hopes and dreams to learn how to make games and do coding..and let me tell you,you will never touch any of those subjects. There books are OLD givingyo u obsolete information..it's like there stuck in a time warp..half my teachers there didn't even have a degree in the field they were trying to teach me...i mean what can a soon to be shrink have to teach me about coding? NOTHING..It felt more like a personal development class where we would just talk about ourselves and our emotions...i refused to go into debt for a school that teaches me nothing..plz plz stay far away from this school..its like someone offering a dead bird to you in exchange for money..you will learn NOTHING
I wish I had made different choices when preparing to go back to school as an adult. Yes the degree from ITT has got my foot in the door at several points along my career progression. This is due to the hard work I put into job searches. Most places I applied turned me away due to my technology degree. No one in the business world has heard of a bachelor degree in project management. Which sometimes helps when asked about it in interviews. This school is a joke in the electronics and in the business industry. The accrediting bodies don't even recognize ITT. The Project Management Institute that wrote the book the project management course uses doesn't even list ITT as an approved school. No other school will take any credits earned from ITT. The career services department has no plan to help students with any professional degree plan. They are great at finding entry level tech jobs that don't require a degree. If you want to set yourself up for success, find a good state school with available classes. If you cannot get into a four year state school, go to community college and transfer later.
You will get as much out of this school as you put into it. I worked a full time job and attended school full time in the evenings. I completed my AA and BS consecutively. It's simple, do your do diligence before singing the dotted line. Make the choice that is best going to benefit YOU! There are a lot of things I dislike about ITT, but I will never sit on my butt like most and blame ITT for my un-successful ability to move forward and achieve a career. All of our situations are different, I understand that but we all have a common virtue to succeed. If you haven't figured out what it is, there is no one else to blame but yourself. Good luck!
School is what you make of it, but this school was just bad. bad teachers and bad classes. Teachers don't teach and most of them don't seem to care if you are learning or not. As long as you attend every class you are guaranteed a passing grade, regardless if you do your work or not. The school gets paid for student attendance and that is what matters to them. Their degree is not accepted at all in 90% of companies out there. You basically spend 75k (4 years) for something worthless. then come the bills and student debt. Sally Mae and now Navient will chase you down and garnish your wages if you don't pay this high interest loans. There is a group in FB that is fighting to get this school under like Everest and Corinthians. Look them up, ITT warriors its the name. Currently we need signatures and stories to be send to the department of ED, but the deadline is 4/7/16. Get your chance in to get back at this shady school.
I received my AS in Networking System Administrator from ITT Tech in 2016 and went straight into the BS for Information System CyberSecurity. I had my concerns when I first started because of all the mixed reviews and lots of negative ones as well but I knew I needed to take a chance and find out for myself if this school was for me. I agree that things don't always work at ITT and the material is more on the out dated side then up to date but dealing with technology and how fast it changes not school can keep update to date. I have encountered the majority of my professors caring about teaching and wanting to help, this I know is not the same in every location and you can encounter bad schools or bad professors anywhere you go. My ITT Tech stayed on top of finding jobs for students but the problem is the student has to respond and be ready for an interview and ready to jump into a career not a job. I found that most of the time students not getting jobs fell on them and not the school. I received a job opening about 6 months after attending ITT Tech and responded right away. I was put in connect with the hiring manager and setup an interview. This job was a paid internship with the government in the IT field. I got the job and after a year was hired on full time with great pay. I love my job and I know that I would not have found this job at that time on my own. I understand the school may not be the greatest but it help me out in a major way and provided a career with great pay and endless opportunities. Not everything will always work out the same for everyone and you the individual needs to be ready for what you are seeking out in life and willing to put the time and effort in to get it.
The college is a joke. I have instructors teaching English but don't speak it, teaching Linux but openly admit they have never used it or experienced it aside from what the book says, and teachers who give grades for nothing. For example, I submitted a paper with the following "Hello, my name is Jerid" Copy and pasted for 5 pages. I got a 100% on that. My courses are all online based, and I needed help in my college math. I drove to the campus in Grand rapids some 45 miles away, only to be told I need to leave and seek help via online tutors as the campus is not allowed to assist me. Now im dealing with a death in the family, and while arranging funeral related events I have neglected my course work. The instructors response, "You are not busy 24 hours out of the day. You need to better micro manage your time and get me your assignments." Seriously? This school or atleast the online only version of it is pure rubbish. I wish I never started it because while my aim is IT Cyber security, I have found that we learn entry level nothing. I know basic coding, have a masters certificate in Hardware, and ever microsoft operating system from Windows 95 to Windows 10, but they count for nothing. My military training, counts for nothing. My former college credits including core class credits count for nothing. My employer does not recognize this "Nationally" accredited college due to past issues of document falsification so there is no ED assist grants for that. The federal Government (My ultimate goal or career path) no longer recognizes the cyber security program from this school. I feel really lied to and mislead. So far its cost me around $15,000 and im not sure how to get away from that.
What an awful school! Their curriculum is completely outdated and I didn't learn a single thing here that I didn't already know. The instructors are completely clueless and just read out of the books. They read out of the incorrect books with many errors. You will actually leave this school dumber than you were when you entered. They will completely mess up your entire future by putting you into $60,000 for a useless associate's degree. Employers won't hire you with ITT Tech on your resume. Everyone by now knows that this school is a complete scam. Just don't do it. Do your research on this school and you will find nothing but trouble. Thanks ITT Tech in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for ruining mine and thousands of other peoples futures!
The first time I attended this school was hands on at an actual school. Since I was already aware that my credits didn't transfer to any other school, I waited and went back to them last year, 2015 to work towards my bachelors. Needless to say I started on the 7th but wasn't allowed to actually log into my classes until the 9th. All along I kept asking my advisor which classes would I start with, due to the fact that I didn't want to take on a major load of classes right before Christmas. Never could answer that question, and poof on the 9th my classes were loaded..........all core classes. Ridiculous. Then we went on Christmas break on the 20th, after having a death in the family over the holidays I couldn't get in contact with my advisor to let him know what was going on. Time and time again, I would tell him not to call me at work, but he would and of course when I tried to return the call no answer. LOLOL, just got a letter in the mail that I need to pay $75 in 5 days or risk being turned over to a collection company. Guess this is why they are part of the colleges that are being investigated now. Yes I have my Associates from here, but believe me it did nothing to help me, but didn't realize this until it was too late. Please do you "homework" and research before locking yourself into this school.
