ITT Technical Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (321)
I would just have to say that it was the worst mistake I ever made in my life. I didnt learn anything that I could take with me. The teachers are teaching there part time, and they just pretty much give you a pass. The tuition was really expensive not only that this were all student loans. Now I have this on my back with nothing to show for it. This school is a joke.
I just wanted to say what school is better out of ITT AND ECPI. .I attended ITT and I truly don't like the information I was given. I also don't like the attitudes of the instructor. I truly dont recommend this school to anyone. I was also told credits don't transfer.
I can honestly say attending ITT Tech was one of the worst mistakes I could've made in my life. From the start, the school felt shady. How pushy they are when you just come in for information about the school. They had me switching my financial aid forms not even twenty minutes of me being there. I had all plans of going to a school to get my Bachelors in Business only to get to this school and find out that the only Bachelors they offered was in Project Management, which I have the least amount of interest in. So the plan was to finish my associates but that shortly changed after being placed in the associate Dean's class for COMP ll. This lady is rude and impatient and to an extent, illiterate. For her to be an English professor makes me wonder where she got her education and if she was out of it all her years of college. They only offer minimum online classes and this class I didn't even have the option to switch. I called the dean for a week straight and he was never there but us as students are expected to stay until 10:55p every night. After a week of trying to reach him, I decided to switch over schools because I was sick of the run around. As far as them helping you with job placement, you have maybe one or two job fairs a year and the career services team will help you redo your resume on a template that they already have made up. They used to post jobs on the board but they don't even do that anymore. They have a bigger team that does less than the smaller team did last year. They mostly sit in there listening to music and having conversations all day. The LRC is a joke. There is one bookshelf. And they want you to use this expensive system that is like Google on acid that doesn't even pull up half of anything relative to what you need. You type in anything and it will give you over 40,000 articles, videos, books, websites, etc. and it's all unfiltered so you have to make your way through all of it to find a useful source. Some of the sources that come up aren't even on the topic! This school was a nightmare from the start. DO NOT. Go to a local community college and take night classes on your time but ITT Technical Institute probably won't be open very much longer with the CEO being charged with fraud and all.
I made the decision to finally go back to school to finish my degree and attended Tampa, FL ITT Tech. Filled with excitement at first as I began my new journey, only to be highly disappointed. I carried a 3.66 g.p.a and was proud of it, until I began noticing that my hard work to maintain this g.p.a, didn't really mean anything at all. The tests are all re-circulated, meaning the exact test we take today will be given to the next class coming in. Basically recycling the same tests. There were students not only cheating their way through, but the honest students were then made to retake tests they had already passed. Every quarter there we less and less students attending, and more dropping out or transferring to other schools. Some of the students behaved like children still in high school, arguing and crude remarks to one another. All accepted by the instructor of the day. If that wasn't enough to make you say hmmm, how about returning to school after a weekend finding out that your Chair Director has quit and no one (staff of ITT) wanted to address the hysteria surrounding the matter. Once the Nursing Chair Director quit, other staff members also began quitting as well. The school is very small so it wasn't as if we the students wouldn't take notice. Much like some of the others, I too have withdrawn from the school, due to the poor curriculum, poor teaching staff, and seeking an education that will benefit me in the future.
I am very disappointed in this school, not only is it not accredited with any nursing Boards, in Florida or any other states but you can not transfer any credits either. So after having paid 50,000 dollars for a useless degree and having the worse teachers ( they scraped the bottom of the barrel) and not barely finishing the program, now I have a useless degree and no one will recognize the affiliation!
I graduated from ITT in 2014 with a BS in EE with a 3.5 gpa. This is school is not accredited with the ABET so real Engineering jobs won't even consider you. I have dozens of no thank you emails for engineering. I even got denied from the government 6 times and I'm a veteran. This school will make you an over qualified technician or an under qualified engineer.
I chose ITT TECH in Cordova TN in 2007 to get my Degree in Information Technology/Computer Network Systems. I went on Advice of my mother who used to work for the company before it was a school. Well while at the school, I dealt with classes that were pointless to my degree. I had an instructor who slept during class. I had another replaced after midterms because she was not qualified to teach the class. So this meant we had go do half a semesters training in one class period. That was just a few of the problems. So I thought it would get better. Well it did'nt, so I went to a different campus in Nashville which I thought would be different Well I found the same horror stories. Then i took a class getting ready for my CCNA. Well I found out that after all the time wasted, I had to go and pay EXTRA to get the certificates, which we should have had already as part of the training. But after I completed half a year. I found all the stories on sites like this. So I continued on. I graduated with 3.45 GPA. I now work for an IT company as a trainer through a marketing service.
This school was awful. They cared about nothing and taught nothing. I would sit in class prepared and ready, but instead, I would have to sit and wait for TWO hours for other classmates to get caught up and do what they should have done a week ago. It was terrible. It is not my fault that they can't get their school work done on time. Don't punish me for that and waste MY TIME! I would ask a teacher for help when I have already tried everything in my power to figure it out on my own, and the teacher had the nerves to tell me to GOOGLE IT! I cold have rung his neck. That was my last straw. I then withdrew from the school. I informed the Director and he seemed to not care at all. As long as these people are getting paid, they do not care one bit. This was ITT Technical Institute in Columbia, SC Terrible school. DO NO ATTEND!
Overall the school can be summarized easily by stating that it doesn't provide enough value for your dollar. You are going to be paying roughly double what it would cost to go to a regular college. What they market is that you will be getting hands on, real world, technical knowledge for this inflated price. What you actually receive is no better than what you would get from any other school, in some cases it's actually much worse. The quality of the teachers was abysmal, of course there were a handful of decent ones, but they are rare. Most of your teachers will have a very basic level of understanding of the subjects they teach. They rely heavily on the book and worksheets, adding no real value to most subject. This would normally result in a lot of failures per class, but at ITT the majority of teachers "teach the test" in some cases they even let you grade your own work, including finals. Guess how many people failed when they got to grade their own papers? It sure does help keep grades up to keep those government checks coming in though! The subject matter is laughably behind. The career services department consists of a couple of people doing google searches for you and mass emailing the entire class the same job postings. Even if you had an amazing time, got all the best teachers for every class, it still doesn't make up for the cost. You can and should get your education elsewhere, it will cost you almost literally half, and they are giving out any secrets at ITT that make up the difference.
The degrees are useless without certifications, example: A+, Network +, Security +, CCNA, MCSE, Cloud, just to name a few. They need to offer certifications included with your degree. It’s hard for me to say that I recommend ITT, when I need to take the extra time and money on top of the school loans just to get a certification. But other than that, the school in NOT bad at all.
