I made the decision to finally go back to school to finish my degree and attended Tampa, FL ITT Tech. Filled with excitement at first as I began my new journey, only to be highly disappointed. I carried a 3.66 g.p.a and was proud of it, until I began noticing that my hard work to maintain this g.p.a, didn't really mean anything at all. The tests are all re-circulated, meaning the exact test we take today will be given to the next class coming in. Basically recycling the same tests. There were students not only cheating their way through, but the honest students were then made to retake tests they had already passed. Every quarter there we less and less students attending, and more dropping out or transferring to other schools. Some of the students behaved like children still in high school, arguing and crude remarks to one another. All accepted by the instructor of the day. If that wasn't enough to make you say hmmm, how about returning to school after a weekend finding out that your Chair Director has quit and no one (staff of ITT) wanted to address the hysteria surrounding the matter. Once the Nursing Chair Director quit, other staff members also began quitting as well. The school is very small so it wasn't as if we the students wouldn't take notice. Much like some of the others, I too have withdrawn from the school, due to the poor curriculum, poor teaching staff, and seeking an education that will benefit me in the future.

I am very disappointed in this school, not only is it not accredited with any nursing Boards, in Florida or any other states but you can not transfer any credits either. So after having paid 50,000 dollars for a useless degree and having the worse teachers ( they scraped the bottom of the barrel) and not barely finishing the program, now I have a useless degree and no one will recognize the affiliation!

I graduated from ITT in 2014 with a BS in EE with a 3.5 gpa. This is school is not accredited with the ABET so real Engineering jobs won't even consider you. I have dozens of no thank you emails for engineering. I even got denied from the government 6 times and I'm a veteran. This school will make you an over qualified technician or an under qualified engineer.

I chose ITT TECH in Cordova TN in 2007 to get my Degree in Information Technology/Computer Network Systems. I went on Advice of my mother who used to work for the company before it was a school. Well while at the school, I dealt with classes that were pointless to my degree. I had an instructor who slept during class. I had another replaced after midterms because she was not qualified to teach the class. So this meant we had go do half a semesters training in one class period. That was just a few of the problems. So I thought it would get better. Well it did'nt, so I went to a different campus in Nashville which I thought would be different Well I found the same horror stories. Then i took a class getting ready for my CCNA. Well I found out that after all the time wasted, I had to go and pay EXTRA to get the certificates, which we should have had already as part of the training. But after I completed half a year. I found all the stories on sites like this. So I continued on. I graduated with 3.45 GPA. I now work for an IT company as a trainer through a marketing service.

Okay so I read this review and I want help those who may want to check this school out either from seeing a commercial about it or heard about it from word of mouth. First of im not by any means a chronic complainer or the type of guy who doesn't want to try and work hard at anything in life so keep this in mind as I get into this review. I'm a current graduate of 2014 with an Associate Degree from this school in Associate Applied Science which the major is Computer Science. But for real first time I went to this school they treat the students a little to easy and pretty much get you sign your life way in student debt and extra payments that you really don't need and made me wish I never signed for it. The classes are to short and the program felt rushed. The campus I went to is in Baltimore Maryland and half the time as a student they never had all the equipment working on campus down to projectors. Sometimes the instructors would show up and other times would just take a day off and not show up at all not even announce it. Some the students which I mean no harm were rough dudes and non ladies showing for class either half clothed or not much to imagination. The dudes was crazy coming to school with nun chucks and knifes and even one case had a guy pull out his knife on another student right as class was going to end. Not the kind of excitement people need for a school that wants to put you in 40,000 thousand dollar debt and extra 2,000 for just going to it. So I got past the program due the system of the school giving 100 just for showing up to class what is this elementary school again this is not how a college is suppose to be like. So its a year later and im still looking for work while I try to improve my education so that I can get this school off my resume cause when they see it they reject me its just horrible. So stay away from this school even after putting everything into the system and trying to get a job through their so called great career department that didn't know I existed until I was near graduation. Which before that the people in the department wouldn't even make eye contact with me. The career lady tried to get me a job with a internship which was out of my way and not in a safe area. Which she whom replaced the previous career service lady should have asked me about maybe a year ago. So do yourself a favor mam or sir don't go to this school unless you want more heart ache and huge debt you cant pay off cause jobs know this school is full of it. I remembered when I first started class and the recruiter told me that government agency's visit this school to hire people. Yeah right not with the image this school has of fraud abuse and even after I got my loan the extra payment loan for 2000 someone in the loan department had the nerve to try and put me in the collection agency even through I was still paying on the loan on time as agreed. So that's ITT Tech for ya and plus the 2 ceo's ofa the company are under investigation for hiding funds from investors. So lastly my advice is try a 2 year community college or if you want to go big try a 4 year deal but if you got no job or funds coming in don't sign for a loan. Either do scholarship or pell grants until you get a job and then also make sure to ask for a solid payment plans but please stay away from this school at all cost. Cause after giving all you got to them they don't care. So that's my story I froze my main debt but still unemployed and praying that either the feds straighten this schools image out or I go to a 4 year school and erase everything I did at itt tech which was not much! I hope this reviews helps all new students young and old. Like I said I'm not a wimp by any means but I can always tell when people are trying to rip you off its a scam just put the school name in Google read on! If this review saves just one more student from financial pain then I've made a difference peace

This school was awful. They cared about nothing and taught nothing. I would sit in class prepared and ready, but instead, I would have to sit and wait for TWO hours for other classmates to get caught up and do what they should have done a week ago. It was terrible. It is not my fault that they can't get their school work done on time. Don't punish me for that and waste MY TIME! I would ask a teacher for help when I have already tried everything in my power to figure it out on my own, and the teacher had the nerves to tell me to GOOGLE IT! I cold have rung his neck. That was my last straw. I then withdrew from the school. I informed the Director and he seemed to not care at all. As long as these people are getting paid, they do not care one bit. This was ITT Technical Institute in Columbia, SC Terrible school. DO NO ATTEND!

First of all you have to finish what you started and get the degree from ITT. Then get your certifications! And use the resorces given to you and find a job. Itt Tech takes effort just like any thing else. I have a networking degree from ITT and everything is going great for me , but I put in the work. If you are lazy ITT Tech is not the school for you. So you had to google some thing to learn about it... Thats how it is in the real job world anyway. Google and Barnes and Noble should be your friend:)

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

Overall the school can be summarized easily by stating that it doesn't provide enough value for your dollar. You are going to be paying roughly double what it would cost to go to a regular college. What they market is that you will be getting hands on, real world, technical knowledge for this inflated price. What you actually receive is no better than what you would get from any other school, in some cases it's actually much worse. The quality of the teachers was abysmal, of course there were a handful of decent ones, but they are rare. Most of your teachers will have a very basic level of understanding of the subjects they teach. They rely heavily on the book and worksheets, adding no real value to most subject. This would normally result in a lot of failures per class, but at ITT the majority of teachers "teach the test" in some cases they even let you grade your own work, including finals. Guess how many people failed when they got to grade their own papers? It sure does help keep grades up to keep those government checks coming in though! The subject matter is laughably behind. The career services department consists of a couple of people doing google searches for you and mass emailing the entire class the same job postings. Even if you had an amazing time, got all the best teachers for every class, it still doesn't make up for the cost. You can and should get your education elsewhere, it will cost you almost literally half, and they are giving out any secrets at ITT that make up the difference.

The degrees are useless without certifications, example: A+, Network +, Security +, CCNA, MCSE, Cloud, just to name a few. They need to offer certifications included with your degree. It’s hard for me to say that I recommend ITT, when I need to take the extra time and money on top of the school loans just to get a certification. But other than that, the school in NOT bad at all.

I have to agree with you. I thought the certifications would be included with the degree since it is such a vital requirement.

I started ITT Tech San Bernardino in March 2014. I was forced to withdraw due to financial aid issues. However I chose to go back June 2014 and pursue my career. I'm in the middle of my 4th quarter now holding a 4.0 GPA. My chairs really do know their specific fields as the associate dean was a math major in college and an excellent math professor. My IT chair is just brilliant and makes it her personal mission her students succeed and she helps place them with employers.. all the complaints I see about ITT tech, well to say the least, it is a matter of perception. It was what you do with your education. I do know there are good instructors and terrible ones. I also had this experience in a community college. Expensive as this school may be I am proud to say I attend there. I was recently brought on as a federal work study in academics and I have a lot of support from various professors when ever I need it.

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.

In response to the comments re: qualified teachers, there are no requirements for educational training required for a college level professor. They only need work related experience. Be aware that many of the same circumstances exists at all colleges.

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.

Based on the way you write, you wouldn't last a semester at a "traditional college." If you think you received an equivalent education at an equivalent price, then you're sorely mistaken.

I didn't go to this school nor am I looking to go to this school. My friend wants to go to this school and I told her I'll search it since she's working my shift. I go to a "traditional" university, I'm pretty happy with it. Anyway your comment about Sallie Mae had me laughing cause you're completely right and Sallie do not play, and could care less. Sallie has gangsta tendencies.
