ITT Technical Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (319)
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.
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.
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?".
I HAVE GOT NOTHING BUT A RUN AROUND WITH THIS SCHOOL, I WAS LIED TO ABOUT THE COSTS AND PARTICIPATION RULES FOR BEING A ONLINE STUDENT, THEY ARE THE MOST EXPENSIVE UNHELPFUL SCHOOL I HAVE EVER BEEN IN CONTACT WITH, THIS WAS A $35,000 MISTAKE AND DUE TO THEIR LIES AND EXPENSES I AM UNABLE TO CONTINUE SCHOOL, HUGE MISTAKE IF YOU CHOOSE THIS SCHOOL, NOT TO MENTION THEY PUT ME IN THE WRONG PROGRAM!
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.
I was a student at ITT-Technical Institute in Everett, WA. I took a 4 year course and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Entertainment and Game Design. Once graduated I was hoping to get into the job field, however ITT never offered or provided any job hunting assistance as they promised. I continued to try and find a job, and wanted to further my education and get some specialized studies. I took a 3 month course at the non-credited school, FuturePoly. FuturePoly’s courses cost significantly less than ITT’s, and I learned more about game design in 3 months than I had in my entire 4 years at ITT. The courses there were taught by people who worked in the industry for leading Game Company’s and worked on major projects and games being released this year. The teachers there saw my level of experience after taking 4 years at ITT and informed me that the training I had received there was not even to Entry Level Standards for a position on a Video Game Development Team. This was devastating information to receive, and I have still not been able to find a job in the related industry. But regardless of my job status, I have started receiving notifications and calls about my student loan situation. I was contacted by the Private Lender that ITT has financed me through, whose information I had never been privy to until they began calling me. I was pushed forward through the ITT application process and everything was done digitally so I never got to speak to or know more about the lender who would be handling my private loans. Now I have a lender who split my private loans into two separate loans. They are charging 10.25% interest on my loans, and offer zero options to lessen the monthly payment to something I can afford on my income. When I called them and asked for help making my payments more affordable, the only option they gave me was to file for economic hardship for 6 months, which only delays the payments but raises the interest rate. After the 6 months were over I still have to pay the full amount with no payment options or flexibility. I simply can’t afford those private loans in addition to the federal student loans I also have to pay, while affording rent and car payments. I have tried to seek out alternative Credit Unions that would be able to consolidate or refinance my Private Student loans, however I have been absolutely unable to find a Credit Union that will accept my private loans because of my status as a student of ITT Technical Institute. I have tried several different Credit Unions and Banks to try and get this loan payment consolidated and more affordable. No Credit Union will work with ITT, leaving me in a position of zero alternative options. I called the Everett ITT campus to speak with Financial Aid about my situation, and they referred me to the student borrower services. However, the Student Borrower Services for ITT Technical Institute were of zero assistance. When I asked them for any recommendations to other Credit Unions I could work with for my Private Loans they had nothing to offer and told me they could not help me. So now I have an extremely high payment for a Private Student Loan that refuses to give me any payment options, an inability to seek a consolidation or refinance through any other bank or credit union, and a degree that will get me nowhere in the job industry because its training did not even meet entry level requirements for Game Designers. ITT Technical Institute takes advantage of student’s dreams of a lifelong career, while instead delivering sub-par education and incorrigible student loans.
This school is under review for ripping off students.. BEWARE... they will force you into a private student loan and say you are unable to get federal loans.. They will make your APR so high it will be difficult to pay. They also give you the run around. Please review before you go to this school... PLEASE... we are in so much debt for what this school has done to our family. http://www.consumerfinance.gov/newsroom/cfpb-sues-for-profit-college-chain-itt-for-predatory-lending/
