ITT Technical Institute Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (322)
ITT-Tech Columbia campus maybe the worst itt-tech if not the worst school ever. The visual communication program is a joke. Outdated software and instructors that arent comfortable teaching college level courses.The school simply doesnt hire industry experts. Anyone in with a Bachelors degree and experience is considered an expert and is hired as an instructor at ITT-tech columbia. On top of that the curriculm doesnt prepare students for the current workforce.
This school is seriously a rip off. You finding yourself working so hard for a degree from a school that has a terrible reputation. The bottom line is that the ITT-technical Institutes are all about money and their numbers. ITT Technical istitutes are about business and business only.If you go to an ITT-Technical Institute you are settting yourself for failure.Its simply not enough to be a hardworking student.Because of ITT-technical reputation in the professional world and below standards education its not a school that you should attend.
This is not a professional school or institute for that matter! I would not recommended this to anyone. GO TO COMMUNITY SCHOOL FOR YOUR AA. I SHOULD HAVE!! It is way too much money and at the community school you get a way better education for much much less. You will even get grant money back in your hand instead of the school tacking everything and still putting u in debt!!
My experience was terrible. Some of the teachers were just reading from the book to teach (they didnt know what they were doing). The REAL good teachers say themselves that the teaching curriculum was outdated, the teacher try to ad some stuff to the class from the real world to get us updated, and it get fired (the only one that knows what he was doing).
The labs where junk,books and computers outdated or not working. one class around 20 students,,3 working on the 3 only good computers for that lab and the othr 17 watching.And to wraped up At the end of the first trimester the principal was working as a teacher because they didint have teachers to teach. So Enter at your own risk.
P.S. this was my personal experience that doesn't mean is going to happend to you, so do your research
I have recently withdrawn from ITT TECH Online. The classes, students, and instructors were great. But as far as the finacial department and the price for an Associates Degree, it is rediculous! I was misinformed from the day I enrolled about the cost and when I started looking at my loan amounts (which I was not informed I would even have any loans) I called and they told me the total cost (45000.00). I was stunned.
I have just enrolled in another school (which is a university), and they are HALF the price! And it is online as well. That though is the only negative thing I have to say about ITT TECH.
I just graduated with my AAS in Computer and Electronics Engineering from ITT Tech, Owings Mills, MD. The school was great, except for one or two classes that seemed to me to be a waste of time.
I have been working in my field for four months, making more money than I ever have before, with great benefits. The school helped me to find and land this great job.
While on this job I have not only used what ITT showed me, but I have outshined another new hire with a Bachelor's degree from another school, simply because the program at ITT is designed to streamline the learning and equip you for what you will absolutely NEED when you start working in your field.
The professors were knowledgeable and helpful. Sure, some of the equipment was older, but they are steadily upgrading. I do wish that there was more time in certain classes to get the full picture of all the concepts presented (some concepts they just "introduced" you to. You then had to do your own work to learn more). But isn't that what higher education is all about? You get what you put into it.
There were some people I was surprised that graduated, since they seemed to not even know basic concepts, but the faculty at ITT WILL help you to get a better job and life for yourself. Like I said, it's all in what you put into it yourself. If you want to succeed, and put in the hard work that success takes, you can do it at ITT Tech.
I am currently in my first year bachelors just finishing two year associates in construction management. The school is way over priced and I am now learning that beyond a bachelors I am screwed. My employment situation has not gotten any better for almost three years now. I wish I had something positive to say but I really dont. I would not recommend this school to anyone...
Itt-Tech Charlotte south campus is great. Admin and teachers care about the students and do all they can to help. I currently work at Wachovia/Wells Fargo and got the job before I finished my Associates. I am perm and make great money just as a tech doing support for the banks. Many of my friends work at Microsoft and many other banks and high end companies making great salaries.
Just like any school it is what you put into it and if you have the drive to be what you want to be.
I am going to get my masters and am going to try to better myself. So i would tell people to go to the school they just have to be able to push theirself!
Entering my third quarter in the paralegal program at the Arnold campus, they dropped my program and told me I could go online or transfer.
First of all, itt credits are not likely to transfer to any schools, and the online program is completetly separate so at the moment im going through financial aid crap again. Oh, and I was just told that I have to take out a $1,000 loan to continue schooling, which I cannot pay right now. I hate this school and I would not recommend it to anyone.
I graduated in 1993.. The computers we had to work on didn't even have Hard drives!!! just the huge floppy disc's... The computers were outdated.. We SHOULD have had UPDATED equipment.
Within 2 years, one of our HEADMASTERS disapeared and took off with the money! I had a job when I was there, and on days we didn't do nothing but play movies, I could have been at work, but IF i left, I would be penalized for not being there... Maybe things have changed now, but I DID graduate, but got nothing out of it.. We made our own cheap circuits.
at one time someone brought in a remote to figure out what was wrong, no one ever figured it out! It was a waste of 2 years. at least at the San Antonio campus.
I have been a student @ ITT Richmond for 2 years and I wouldn't trade it for anything. True the credits dont transfer to ALL schools but they do transfer. It depends on the school and the department chairs.
I currently have 2 friends that transfered right into a regionaly accredited school and got scholarships so it really all depends.
As far as the instructors go everyone that I have crossed paths with have been great. I have had 5 teachers that have their PhD's and knew what they were talking about. My other instructors have worked in the field they teach and have given me real life facts about my major.
Yes ITT is expensive and I believe that corporate is greedy and they dont care. As for the instructors and admin at ITT Richmond they are awsome. This school allows working people with families a chance to better themselves. They work with you and will bend over backwards to accomodate your needs. I went to a "traditional" school for a year and a hlf before ITT and if you work full time and have a family you can forget it. You dont have much say in your schedule at a traditionl school they are mostly day classes some schools offer nights but not for everything.
Eventually you will be forced to take day classes and there is no way to fit 2 day classes in and still work a full time job. Im sorry but ITT has its benifits. I have a great job at a huge lawfirm and Im not even done with my degree!
