This should tell the prospective ITT Technical Institute student EVERYTHING he or she needs to know before enrolling: http://www.bbb.org/indianapolis/Business-Reviews/schools-academic-colleges-and-universities/itt-educational-services-inc-in-indianapolis-in-5113 Do please visit the BBB and research ITT Technical Institute for yourself. One person stating his or her opinion on a forum such as gradreports.org only carries the weight of one person's opinions and experiences, but a revoked BBB accreditation and F grade speaks volumes.

I don't know why there is so much bad publicity about this college. I think that this is a great college. Yes, it is a little expensive, but honestly what college isn't? What students don't realize is that other colleges may have cheaper tution but they have to pay for their books, which could be really expensive. Most of the books at ITT are provided for you and are part of the package. You also get a free laptop when you join. I think this is a great school and I recommend it to anyone looking for a college to attend.

I'm calling BS on this review. It reads like it was written by an ITT Tech representative. I know the school firsthand. It's true enough that decades ago it was one of the better tech schools, but of late, it has lost sight of its mission of education. It seems as if this for-profit school has become for-profit and nothing else ...worse yet, it looks like it has succumbed to rent-seeking behavior to obtain that profit. Not really contributing anymore. To quote one ITT Dean ..."D's get degrees". No wonder employers won't come within a mile of an applicant with an ITT Tech degree. Note to OP: at least admit that you are an ITT Tech rep. Thanks.

I think that you are just a person who had a bad experience. I understand your frustration, but don't you dare attack me and my opinion. My classmates also love this school. So just because you didn't get exactly what you wanted from ITT (which may be your own fault) don't take it out on me.

ITT Tech Degree worse than worthless

After graduating from ITT Tech with a BSEECT and a 3.99 GPA, I sent out a mass of applications to positions well within my skill and experience level for three months and didn't receive even one response from an employer. My resume is visually appealing, represents me very well and should serve to attract any 'best-of' employer, but to no avail. I finally sought advice online as to why I wasn't receiving any responses. From the information I gathered, ITT has such a heinous reputation for being a degree mill that employers regularly use the name of the school to pre-emptively weed out unqualified applicants in the Applicant Tracking System. I can't say I disagree with this behavior. While in school, I observed several people that rightfully ought not have graduated at all, for the reason putting very little effort forward and having very little knowledge of their discipline, being awarded the same degree I earned with diligence. I further observed that many of the instructors are not qualified to teach their respective courses. It was a common occurrence that I was more knowledgeable concerning the subject matter than the instructor. The advice that I received and finally used was to leave the degree on my resume, but expunge the name of the school. With this action, I immediately started getting interviews, but so far, as soon as the topic comes up about 'which' school I had attended, the interviews are soon after terminated. It looks like the ITT Tech Degree devalues the paper it was printed on and actually serves to detriment the job seeker in obtaining gainful employment ...further, I am out several tens of thousand dollars of student loan money that I have no means to pay back after working my tail off to excel in school. I recommend strongly against this school and any like-kind, for-profit institution. I must qualify this in saying that ITT Tech did not always have this reputation. Many years ago, when I had earned my Associate's degree from this school, it was a reputable school with solid instructors. It is shameful how that has changed.

I landed a job before I graduated my BA for the Systems Security Program. For being in the IT field for less than three years I have landed an network administrator role. I just got an offer for a "security systems administrator" for a well known company. Before I started this career and school I was working at Taco Bell. I also have a drug felony I spent some time in prison for. With the combination of hard work and the degree it really did get me into the career field. If a person like me can do it then anyone can do it.

I graduated from IttTechnical Institute in April 2001 after 2 years of classes 4 hours 5 days a week. I was in the third class to Graduate from the Albany campus. The first class graduated two out of thirty, second six out of thirty and my class we had eight out of thirty. This leeds to a 17 percent graduation rate. The quality of instruction is adequate even though some of the instructors were constantly drunk. However those who didn't have basic understanding before the first class soon got left behind. More then 10 years latter I still have 27% of my loan to lay back. Fortunaty for me I landed a 4Ok a yr job 3 months before graduating now the same job pays 65k. I work with many people who have no degrees. So I can say my time getting the degree was worth it but I was overcharged then it was around 26K.

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.
