ITT Technical Institute Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (322)
I just started my fifth quarter at ITT in Sylmar, Ca and I have nothing but good things to say. I don't know why people are complaining about the school. Obviously some people don't read the fine print on the contract and all the other paper work handed to them. ITT DOES NOT just hand out degrees.
I have actually worked really hard to get where I am, and it's all thanks to my instructors. All of them have offered tutoring for the whole class. I don't understand why people don't aren't persistent if they are having issues with an instructor or with the school.
I attended L.A. Mission College right out of high school for two years and I was only able to pass a total of three classes because when I asked the teacher for help on the subject, they would direct me to some other teacher for tutoring.
Also, I was never able to get financial aid because my so called counselor was never in, or they told me to make an appointment because they were always on vacation. All of my ITT instructors send me e-mails at least three times a quarter asking how I'm doing in the class and if I am having any trouble understanding the course work.
Maybe it's the program people decide to go into. I have chosen the HIT program and it was recently accredited, so when I graduate I will graduate with an AS in RHIT. All I'm saying is read EVERYTHING before you decide to join ANY school. Not every school or program is for everyone. Also, look what accreditations, credentials, certifications, ect. the school has. If you dont do that before you attend you're pretty much setting your self up to fail.
Im set to graduate in 9 weeks. I'm getting an associates degree in their CEET program. I've had two friends who have attended this school and received the same degree, and they both came straight out of it making 45,000 a year w/benefits. I seem to have a few job offers, and am thinking about attending their 4 year program.
Before attending ITT I went to a local CC, and all I can say is FUCK THEM. People are complaining on here about the teachers and coarses...at least the coarse is set. When you start, they hand you a piece of paper saying, here, this is what your going to take, start to end, and when your done, you get a degree.
Not at a CC, (at least not mine (mott)) They constantly changed their requirements for graduation, and it seemed like the councilors didn't know what was going on.
The teachers I've had have been for the most part great. Ive never had such good math, english, and electronics teachers. Ive had a couple ones that I didn't care for (literally a couple, you know...2) But I feel like ive learned alot. When you go in they tell you that credits don't transfer, its no secret.
Its expensive, and I really don't think CJ is a good idea unless your really dedicated to getting a job and doing footwork...across the country.
I do notice that you can fake your way through it a bit. although i will say alot of people got weeded out at about the halfway point, my class started with around 70 kids, now there's like, 14. I will say there is one guy in my class that doesn't know a whole lot, he crutches off his friends.
I will be updating when I graduate, I'm going to start applying for jobs this next week, I'll let you know how it goes.
I have always been interested in Criminal Justice. While i was in high school that is what I knew I wanted to do. So I decided to go to ITT tech i read it was easy, fun,you make money and all the good stuff you want to hear and it was close to home so that was a plus.
NOw I have completed 4 quarters and since the day I have started attending that school I was skeptical I am a 20 year old female I would have to say it was the worse decision I have ever made.
Not only is it majorly expensive and you have to be careful how you use your money they just take it and steal it and they dont even care about you they dont care about if you pass your classes or your future. It is just all around bad. I was trying hard to look for good reviews to continue my education at ITT. But the truth is there is no education at ITT Tech.
I am sad to say I am foolish for wanting to take the easy route and now im about 14,000 dollars in depth and have to start all over again. A lot of students there dont like it there many just want to finish and see where it takes them but not me I am tired of all of it and wont waste my time anymore.
Im ready to learn go to a real college and earn my grades and its not burning my pocket. If you decide you want to go to itt just be carefull dont do it because once you get there you will regret it for the rest of your life. sad sad sad
I attended ITT this past quater. I really loved the course work online, but I was saddened after enrollment -THEY DO NOT TELL YOU. It is only Nationally accredited. Course work will not transfer to a Junior College, State University, PLEASE understand most employeers will not hire you unless the college is REGIONALLY accredited!
The Federal Government and the State Governments will not hire you with an ITT DEGREE...They only accept a degree from a Regionally accredited college or university. ITT has not proven itself to the National College Board to be successful in its teachings. If you attend and get a National Accreditation DEGREE from ITT you will not be able to use it for a JOB...How are you going to pay off the large debt of a STUDENT LOAN...
Believe me...I went for 1 QUARTER and now I am left with a $6,000 debt with a Student loan..about $500 per credit hour (3 Courses) at 4 Credit hours each....
ITT Tech is not for everyone. I have been there a year and I feel like its a waste of my money, there are people there that will get a degree and mess things up for people like me that have learned something. The teachers are egotistic jerks and are more into the girls than teaching the class. Every once in a while you will find a good teacher. I think in any school you go to, its the students responsibility to learn as much as possible. ITT Tech hasnt found me a job but I have found that jobs take me more serious that I am in school.
I read these negative things posted from other students, and I am shocked. I have always worked really hard at obtaining my degree. I have learned a lot of things from ITT-Tech. If you are not learning anything it is not their fault, it is yours. That is the whole point of going to school online.
It is your job to read, study, and learn what they are teaching you. Let me tell you something else, the do not just hand out A's, I have gotten a couple b's and a C on one of my courses before. SO I don't know where you are getting they just give out a's. Maybe you knew how to do the work but afterwards you forgot your information because you didn't actually read through the chapters.
You say the went through the course to fast, but you know that when you sign up how long each class is. I just want to say ITT tech is going to save my life by their hard work and dedication to providing me with an education. The proffesors are great and know what they are talking about and do a great job. I have never had any problems with ITT-tech in the last 6 years of attending off and on (had two daughters in between).
Enrolling is easy and they order all your books for you, you don't have to worry about it. Anyways, if your not able to obtain the information being provided I do not think it is right to go and play the blame game because whenm you are pointing your finger at someone else, you have four more pointing back at you!
I only completed 1 quarter of my program and almost done with the second, then dropped out. During my time there I did not learn a whole lot. The instructors were going through the material to fast and I and many other students were not cacthing on. But in all my classes I had A's.
I was in a algebra 2 class and never even had pre algebra and I had an A in that class. All the answers were given to us in all my classes so of course i didnt learn anything. If what you are looking for is a degree that is very expensive then itt-tech is that school, but if you really want to learn something then dont consider this school.
I learned more in a 3 week free course given in Arizona than i did in the first 3 months that I was in itt-tech, which cost me about 5,000 dollars. This was my experience hope that its not yours, do your research.
I am currently a student in the visual communication program. I deeply regret getting mixed up with itt-tech. first of all its very expensive I don't feel like I am recieving the education that I am paying.
there are some good instructors in other programs. In the visual communication program they seem to can't get and keep good instructors. If you are considering going to itt-tech make sure that is your last resort.
There are other alternatives.Besides the credits dont transfer and in a way it is a rip off! highway robbery trust me do your research first dont believe the hype
I started there as a Criminal Justice major and left after the first semester. They are extremely expensive and do no better than any other school. They do not let any financial aid rollover to be a refund to the student as most schools do giving the students breaks in helping them cover home.
I say it's a complete ripoff, especially when you can attend elsewhere and get more experiences, less loans to pay later, have a little money from the government to help at home, and can petition your grades,etc. My major issues with ITT-->
#1-ITT is not accredited with any of the major University and College accrediting services which is required if you want to transfer credits.
#2-The teachers consist of several lower level types just because they have worked in a certain field and think they are experts.
#3-I made all As in a specific class and the teacher had one issue with my final paper so he gave me an F for the entire class. Politically Correct Idiot only had personal issues and used it to grade people. Don't let them rob and rape you of truth. They are a scam and charge for it!!
I just started ITT and into my second quarter, and I already got hired from a company who were looking for 2 students from the electronic department to start working for $12 and hour. I barely knew anything about electronics until I came to this school. From what I heard, companies are constantly looking for students in ITT Tech to hire. I know a couple of people who have not graduated yet who are already working for the field they're studying.
I am surprised because I had my doubts about going to this school after reading a lot of negative reviews about it. I guess experiences vary from different locations. All I know is, going to this school was the best decision for so far. My teacher also told me yesterday that another is company is looking for 15 students to interview from my major in electronics.
