ITT Technical Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (319)
I will never recommend this for profit college! They never let you know how much they cost, they never let you know their classes DONT transfer, I have yet to find a job in my field of study and I graduated at the top of my class! ITT is a waste of time and money, their degrees are worth less than Toilet paper that has been used!
This place is a huge lie. They barely teach you anything and pass you even if you're not really getting the parts they do teach. Job placement is a joke and their stats for the same are lies. Trying to get jobs yourself doesn't work because employers won't touch you. Accreditation is done by an organization that is really only there to accredit fraud schools like this one. Ruined my financial life. Don't do it!
The problem with this school is that what the admins say are all lies to get you to join in. The teachers dont teach what its needed and you end up with a useless degree that companies dont want. There is a great group in FB called ITT Tech Warriors.
Do not go to this school. They tried to make me pay my administrative fees and admission fees of 300 dollars multiple times and then sent a collection agency after me. The tuition itself is astronomical for the education you are receiving and employers don't take it seriously. Only attend this school if you have loads of extra money you don't want. Please do yourself a favor and don't go there it could really ruin your life if you don't know what your getting in to.
I recently enrolled in this college to improve my computer aided drafting skills. It is becoming clear that this is not as good of a school as I had previously thought. The school has some good instructors, however they recruit and accept any student that will knock on their door, and is a contributing factor for the low morale and poor student attendance. The recruiters prey on students that are economically disadvantaged, they are not looking at the person as a whole their concern to build more revenue for ITT tech. Classes are scheduled to begin at 530 and over by 1030 in the evening, I have not been in a class that has gone beyond 930 PM. Do more research and find a school that is smaller in scale.
Excellent instructors and course material. ITT prepared me well for a career in the IT space and opened many doors for me. In addition, ITT is flexible with work schedules so that someone taking care of a family can still get a great education. I have had nothing but positive experiences with ITT.
Don't believe any of the posts where people made a ton of money and got great jobs because it's just employees getting paid to post. I got a degree in visual communications was the best of my class had my work on display numerous times etc etc. Got my degree and applied for over a year in my field. I applied at least thtee times a day every day trying to find something. Did I? No. Would I? No. The degree is a joke no one will hire you for it. I work part time at a store as a sales rep while running my own business. Honestly should of done it to begin with because I would of saved over 50k for a woruthless piece of paper. They also lied to me about my loans so I was charged more, they sank my parents into 30k debt which they had to re-mortgage the house to pay it off. They were only supposed to be co-signers but I ended up not even being on the loan only them. You will save so much money and actually get a degree that means something if you attend a community college and go to a local university. Don't do ITT its a scam that will ruin your lifeeding and credit forever.
Do Not go to ITT. Horrible school. Take your money and the professors do not care about the students success. They lured me in with student loans from a private bank and never disclosed any of the interest or payback payments. This school is like all the other for profit schools, money for them nothing for the student
I am going into my second year for my Associates Degree and I must say this school is not as cracked up as it says to be. 3 different deans within the past year and a half. Teachers who hardly teach you the information in your curriculum and you are much better off teaching yourself from the online material. A career services department that is very slow when responding back to you. Also a internet server that is slow as molasses, sometimes it takes 20-30 mins just to get into the student portal. ...I can't wait to graduate and get out of this school. Stay Away and look at other opportunities out there.
Ok here is the Pros and Cons of getting and education from I.T.T Technical institute. You are put on a fast track towards your education. I started off in the Associates Program for (NSA) Network Systems Administration and I had some really good instructors who taught us the core of what is needed in the OSI Model and how to trouble shoot layer by layer. We learned the Cisco routing techniques and how to implement the code for routing and setup virtual routers , trouble shoot etc. We learned SQL programming in the associates program as well as basic software programming and development with scripting in C++ and Pearl. Now that I am in the program for Cyber Security for Bachelors I am learning much more doing security exploits thought Virtual labs and the instructor that we have in Houston has his own separate site that we use to strengthen our skill sets. I have been out of school for 17 years when I went back. Right before I graduated student career services found me a job doing help desk at a company near by my home. I worked there 9 months and I was laid off. That is the nature of I.T. Business period. CONS: What they don't tell you about I.T. is you may work on a project 3 to 6 months for the 1st four or five years in this business or even get a 2 year contract tops before you find a permanent position somewhere. Another thing is most I.T. Employers do not want you to have a criminal background so I.T. Tech does not tell you that when asking you what educational program fits your needs best as part of the assessment. In the I.T. field if you have a misdemeanor or felony you are not going to find work unless you start your own company. It can be really difficult. My Advice is to tell people I.T.T Tech is what you make of it, If you are attending the school and you are the first one to break out and go home at 8:00 p.m when the class starts at 6:00 p.m. you are going to miss a whole lot of good things depending on the instructor. If you want to hit it big in the I.T. Field become a developer and you will get a job no matter what. Most people that develop software start on free sites like codeacademy.com and codeavengers.com with no formal training just dedication. If you add that to your I.T.T degree plan you will make around $70k or more a year. Another thing get your classmates phone numbers, this is still a who you know world where having contacts can lead you to a career. For instance two guys in my class are helping me get on at their job as help desk person making 45k a year and I have been out of work for 5 months. One more thing you may have to move in the I.T. Field if a position is tailored to your skill set. The I.T. Field has so many factors to it and variables. The instructors who do I.T. sometimes move across the U.S. to get good positions and teach at night on top of that. You can go to Harvard and go through the motions and still not come out knowing a damn thing to be honest. Education is what you put into it. My last advice is to tell all of you to start out as help desk because that is the 1st real I.T. Position that you will get. If you have clean background then you can volunteer with the F.B.I or C.I.A. and ask them about their mentor program and they will give you a reference that will take you anywhere. Keep in mind you may have to move if you find a good position. If you can't find an I.T. job and you have a Bachelors take a job as a Manager making $50k or somewhere close. A Bachelors is a Bachelors.
