This school is very good. The administration and representatives were and are very helpful. I have not had any problems with this school. The financial aid office is great as well. I like my classes and my instructors are helpful. I would and have recommended this school to other people. Everyone takes their learning seriously.

I joined ITT Technical Institute in Seattle WA where I had no money and nothing. I was working all kind of hard working jobs to make a living. After I joined ITT-TECH and I did all my homework’s and read the books carefully. I was going to the school even when I had no classes and I got with the teacher and asked those questions. I learned a lot and I am still learning. After two quarters in ITT I got an assembler job and I worked in that position for almost a year than I changed to work in technician roll for another company. After 6 months in the technician job I got an offer from another company to be there test tech level one engineer where they were making circuit boards. Now I am in my last year before graduation I work in medical devices as test engineer level ll. I succeeded because I did my work and I worked hard for what I want. I did not sit in the end of the class playing with my phone and copy pasting other people work. If you do your work does not matter what school you go to you will always succeed. ITT taught me a lot and I am very thankful to them.

I will write my story about ITT-TECH. I went to ITT when I was doing security officer jobs. I was making 12 $ an hour and I work every day. I had no life before ITT. So one of my friends said you have to go to ITT. You can change your life. So I did go to ITT but I am not a normal student. I study above and beyond, no mater if the teacher finish the book or no I read the whole book page to page. I buy extra books and I study hard. Within the first two quarters I got a job in aerospace where I was doing assembly than I moved to another company after 5 months to be a test tech. Later I got another job to be a test tech engineer and now I am in my Bachelor program also in ITT and I have a job in engineering " Test Engineer II" and I have a life. I have my new car, my own place and a good life. The school did a lot to teach me but I did a lot too to learn and be better than others.

I am a student in Center City Philadelphia and this will be my last year. I wrote about this school in 2013 when I started and I'm still going strong. This school will make you work for your grades. You will not pass if you do not do the work and they don't pass you for just showing up. I've seen people get dropped or having to repeat a class if they don't get there work in. And attendance is a must or you will be getting a phone call from your teacher. They do try to work with you and help you to pass but it's up to you. They won't give it to you, you must earn it trust me because I had a hech of a time with math 1 and 2 but passed with a c and a c+ and they didn't give that to me one bit. Right now I am holding a gpa of 3.5 all I can say is do the work, come to class and you will be fine. ITT TECH has a lot to offer you just have to put the efford in. Maybe the other ITT TECH schools are run of the mill but the one here in Philly I still think it is all that. Good luck...

Hanover, MD is a new ITT tech campus. The teachers are atrocious except for a spare few. I am only in my first quarter and will be doing my best to bail out of this contract. It is not worth the time. I am learning nothing, I know all this information, and my teacher's are sub-par at best. Those who are in their last quarter tell me it does not get better.

Sorry to say nothing gets better at this school. I walk the stage in two weeks and I was in the same boat you are in now. Yep no challenges what so ever and nothing learned, and I still didn't get a job.

You are correct and what everyone is telling you is correct, it seriously never gets better. I lied to myself thinking it would, after 3 quarters I quit. Your credits won't transfer either, but trust me it's not worth continuing. Biggest mistake of my life ever is ITT.

TAKE A REALLY GOOD LOOK AT SCHOOLS FIRST!!!

I graduated back in December of 2012. I got my Associates in CAD Drafting from ITT. The reason I joined was because an old friend graduated and made a good living for himself. So did his friend. Did I learn a whole bunch????? Well....40,000k worth I don't know about that. I did learn a lot about Revit, AutoCAD, Inventor different software programs, details of blueprints, different views, math problems I would never of knew about, and a lot about how to properly detail sentences, paragraphs, create power points and utilize different types of programs I never would. I cannot judge ITT Tech and compare it to another college. Since I have never been to another college. I'm not going to call it the best school out there, no way. I think a lot of it depends on the person attending though. What you put into it is what you get out of it. Some of the "instructors" really don't give a crap. I think it's quite noticeable too. Overall, I do think ITT Tech is in it for the money. Since graduating though I must say.....I've been given really good job offers. Interviews to make good money. Currently I make 25.00 hourly . In Construction. The trade I've been in for 10 years. I'm really Bachelors of Science in Project Management Administration really PAYS ITS WAY!!!!!!!!! otherwise I'm s$$$ out of luck and owing 80 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO A DAMN SCHOOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOAAAAHHH. I honestly really did wish I researched school before I just signed the damn paperwork!

Ask a lot of questions, but try to go to another college. Degree was not worth all the money in student loans. Too high priced and degree means nothing.

Okay Marcus. I will be more specific. You will have a heck of a time trying to get a job that is worthwhile after graduating from ITT. The degree is not really worth the paper it is written on. As for price, you are looking at 48000 for associates, and double for Bachelor. Most people who graduate from ITT are not able to afford their loans. What else do you want to know?

I am attending the University of Alaska Anchorage for a Bachelors in Construcion Project Management. I already work and the industry and I am finding myself dissatisfied with the curriculum offered at the biggest university in our state. So I decided to look into ITT Tech since it is the only other school that offers the degree up in AK (strange, since construction is and has been a booming industry up here for the last 20 years +). Honestly, I'm sad to see all the reviews from people that have attended ITT Tech on the difficulty finding jobs and deficient education. At the same time, I'm disheartened that as I attend a real university the education is just as lacking.... No wonder no one in this generation is moving forward. The false advertising by educational institutes is absurd. For the cost we pay in tuition (and made up ridiculous fees), these institutions should be held to a higher standard and be responsible for providig students with a worthwhile education...

I agree, it's too expensive. I inquired about prices and they informed it would about $76,000.00 for a bachelors degree and none of the credit is transferable, if I ever had to transfer to another school. Not worth the gamble.

Study elsewhere and save money!

Avoid ITT Technical Institute like the plague. In the time that I have been a student there (2011 - Present), I have seen 5 Deans, 2 Associate Deans, a registrar that is not certified, a career services that has only placed students in low level call centers (answering phones, not doing IT networking). This school has proved to be nothing more than a diploma mill. The quality of education and value of the diploma have been vastly overstated. Some of the student body are not qualified to hold a high school diploma, much less an Associates or Bachelors degree. Seriously, one student asked an instructor "What is Google?".

ITT Technical Institute is not worth even half of what you pay to go to school there. The administration as a whole are incompetent. This school does not care if you learn anything here, you are just a number in a seat. Attendance is praised higher than grades, and they will pass you even if you do not make the grades so long as your financial aid is up to date. Which isn't always the case seeing how the financial aid staff is useless. You would figure a school that relies so much on financial aid would be on top of that at least, but no. Instructors are hit and miss, mostly miss(have had instructors themselves tell the class that ITT is not a real school). Parents, veterans, future students... RUN AWAY!!! This company is not what they represent themselves as. Save yourself the time, money, and headache and go somewhere else.

What he is saying is true. This school is a complete joke. I did 3 quarters at itt. The classrooms, everything are so empty and awkward feeling. You can't fail any class, you get let out of class way early every day. One day they had an ice cream truck come and deliver everyone ice cream. Wtf?? Stay away. If you're already at itt and not far along quit. Your credits won't transfer despite what you've been told, but anywhere else you'll actually learn something and it'll be way cheaper.
