ITT Technical Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (319)
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.
I started Dec 2009. I was registered in 2 classes without my choice. I submitted a request to drop one of the courses since I had taken it at my other college. Itt-tech dropped the wrong class! They dropped the class I was currently attending and submitted assignments.
Shortly after that, they deleted the other class leaving me enrolled in nothing. This triggered the financial aid office to return my federal loans. After a month, I was able to get back into my class but the class had already ended and I had to take an incomplete. The next session started and I was not enrolled in the next session because my financial aid was returned. What a horror story! I sent emails to everyone all the way up and not a single person responded!
Itt-tech does not teach you. You teach yourself using your book. This to me is not on-line school. It's independent study.
ITT Technical Institute. I am reading what everyone is writing and I am disapointed. Firs ITT Tech, is accredited, and the US Gov approves of their degrees.
The cost is high, and if you dont learn anything at ITT then you are not applying yourself. ITT doesnt waste time with stupid classes that you will not need, such as music for example. if your going for a CEET degree then you dont need to know anything but how to, use your equipment, troubleshoot circuits, write code and design circuits. all the other classes that a major univesity teach you are a waste of time and money. do your research for the career you want to go into and then choose your school. Oh and ITT may be a technical institute, but it is still a collage, and it is still a valid degree that you recive, and in the end that is what employers are looking for they want to know that you can make the commitment. all the training you need will be provided by the employer. I know I have worked for several Electronic companies, and will be graduating ITT in May.
I graduated the AAS/EET program from ITT Tech in Nashville, TN back in 1990. I graduated with a 3.7 average. I was a cab driver when I started the school until Service Merchandise came looking for someone to fill a position in the Technical Services Dept. I got the job.
I stayed with SM until I was released in January of 1995. By the end of March my wife and I were moving to Roanoke, VA and then eventually to Rocky Mount (VA).
I had always wished I could have gotten my Bachelor's Degree, but during the time I was in Nashville, all they offered was the Associate's Degree, until 1994. But, by that time I was no longer interested in getting my Bachelor's degree.
Fast forward to the present, and after several jobs in the industry, ITT has now opened up a branch in Salem, VA which is about 10-15 miles from where I work.
One of the attractive features of going to ITT is that they promise that if you need refreshing on anything all you have to do is come and you can audit the classes free of charge.
However, now that I am some 20 years removed from my original education, after talking to the Dean of the school, she isn't sure which classes I'll be able to audit since the curriculum has changed; I may have to buy new books on top of that.
I'm going back so I can finally get my Bachelor's, which I think is essential to surviving in the electronics field these days. I would have had much better opportunities where we moved to if I had already gone the 3rd year.
I thought ITT was a great school when I went; I thought that I was in electronics boot camp and that my education was being geared toward design work. Had I been able to and gone the 3rd year right after finishing the first 2, that's exactly what I would have been doing.
So, we'll see how this turns out. They require more general studies than when I was in the first time. Back then the only other course besides electronics and math was a Technical Writing course. Now you have to study ethics and environmental issues and all kinds of other stuff which I didn't have to take back then.
My belief about this whole thing is, since I've paid for an Associate's degree, then I should be able to take all the classes that are required for the Associate's Degree, now, without having to pay any extra. I won't receive any letter grade for the work, but at least I would have the knowledge and would be ready for the 3rd year when it starts. They've just recently started the school, so I will have to wait for 2 years before they start the 3rd year. That's why I've decided to go through the entire thing again so I'll be ready for it. I'm 52, now, by the way.
Hope this helps; let me know either way.
