"School is a joke. Youll pass the program as long as you show up everday. Staff is always throwing fund raisers and parties, there very strict like no walking and chewing gum. They tell you theyll help you get a job and dont cant even get a hold of anyone in there carrer services. Oh yeah to Vets. stay away theyll rob you blind like me took my enire pell grant even though i owed not a dime never failed a class. You know what they told me "Its our right to distribute the money the way we wish thats why you didnt get any." so yeah they teach moral and ethics its there big thing but they steal $2,000 from you and say its there right. Worst school ever."

"I was very happy about a year ago getting back into school after 10 years of being out of school.Now that I have graduated with Pharmacy Technology certification and 3 weeks later I received a bogus looking parchment paper diploma. I was throughly disgusted when I received it in the mail. Man even both my High School diploma and Junior college Asscociate's degree carry more weight than that. To make matters worse I am not able to find a job because most of the jobs that are posted require 3 to 5 years experience. They are a total waste of money that I now have to pay back. A word to the wise stay away from these for profit schools. Your better going to college some where else that in my case means i should have went back to get my bachelor's of science that i only needed 3 semesters to finsih."

"absolutely would not recommend this school. no one in my graduating class would recommend it. They do not have their stuff together and are not there to make sure you are happy and successful. total waste of money and completely regret ever wasting any of my precious time."

"My son went to this school,took heating and air.He got a completion certificate and his HVAC cert for 12k+ would not even let him keep the books,though He was told he could.No help getting work,not one person is working in this field from his class.Teachers were sub-pare and that's being kind.All these people want is your money.Would never recommend to anyone!!"

"I have been reading these reviews with mixed feelings. I started taking classes a month ago in a newly designed (first class) ASNursing program and I have nothing but GOOD things to say! Sure there have been snags and weeks where no one was really sure what was going on but that was due to it being a new program and the kinks needed to be worked out. The head of our program emails everyone almost daily. The instructors are very knowledgeable and have impressive stats. I am 40 yrs old and haven't been in a classroom in a very long time so it's tough but, like anything else it takes working hard to get anywhere. I go to classes 3 days a week and spend the next 4 doing almost nothing but homework! Yeah it's a lot but at the same time your only going to get out of something what you put in to it! As for the cost factor yeah it's 50k BUT look at other nursing schools they are just as much if not more! Plus I like the fact that books were factored into the tuition. I have a friend who is going to a community college for her LPN and she just spent 700 on books and that was only for one semester! The books they gave us were brand new, still in the wrappers! So for all you out there that are bad-mouthing ITT for one obviously your not serious about your education and for two if you don't want the hassle of paying back the loans, then stay out of school! I don't care what school you go too, your still going to have to take out loans! I for one like the idea of not having to be on a waiting list and keep putting off something I've always wanted to do. I wanted a school that focused on just nursing, and that is exactly what the program here at ITT does!"

"In my 3rd quarter and have not learned a single thing, yet I have a 3.9 avg. the instructors teach as if your already supposed to know the material. the school is unorganized, not helpful with and problems you may have. ITT is a for profit school which makes it a business, a business whose only concern is making money and it shows. They will be quick to drop students but even quicker to accecpt new students as long as you pay up. please do some research before aquiring a massive debt with ITT."

"I had attended this school in 2001 and at that time this school was extremely good. I held a 4.0 Gpa and graduated with honors and perfect attendance. I believe that the school worked harder to help me find a good paying job because the staff saw how dedicated I was. I came to school well dressed, and stayed dedicated.I found the classes to be easy to understand and fun. The instructors also worked at Fresno City, and worked at IT as a second job. I found a job within a month working for a mortgage company making pretty decent money. I believe that some people arent finding jobs because the economy is so bad right now, but if you want it, go after it. Dont wait on the school to do it for you. They have you and 100's of other students that they are trying to place. Be your own leader, dont play follow the leader."

Chef NoGo - 8/3/2010

"Please, I urge you....do your homework. Ask the school how many sign-up for the culinary program, how many graduate on time, how many drop out. They will provide something in writing, but ask them to quantify these questions. Then ask them why they feel the AOS is worth the cost ($30K). Do they really think a chef in Sacramento can pay this financial aid back? Be aware that this cost will accrue interest and depending on the type of loan, will eventually cost more than double. Are you prepared to pay double? Don't let them talk you into the AOS, the credits are not transferable and the trip to Europe isn't worth the $. You can take yourself to Italy, Spain and the south of France for a lot less. Also, talk to the instructors and ask them to be very honest about the program. My instructor (name withheld to protect identity) advised me the AOS program isn't worth it. The instructors who teach it need to be fired. So, I changed my contract to the shorter program. Then, after two weeks and a keen business mind, cancelled the contract. That's right; their contract gives you 7 days from the first class to cancel. I cancelled the AOS signed a new contract for the shorter class and got another 7 days to make my mind up about the program. It just doesn't make good business sense. Let's face it, is a chef or business owner of New Orleans, Miami, Los Angeles or San Francisco really going to appreciate it when you tell them you attended Institute of Technology in Roseville, CA? No, IOT will not hold the weight of Le Cordon Bleu, even if it's Le Cordon Blue Sacramento. You are much better off attending Community College. Infact, most CC's have good programs and are better known in the industry to provide quality training. Good luck and do your homework before you sign-up with IOT. P.S. they recruit convicts, as most restaurants do not require a background check, so culinary is a good job for ex-convicts. This is true for most kitchens. Be prepared and informed about the cost and clientele."

"Don't waste your money. They do not help you at all to find a job or even to where to apply for jobs. They say call around, see who is hiring, and then they will fax your resume for you??? Like you can't do that? Of all the classes that graduated this past year, I don't know anyone that has been able to find a job as as medical assistant..and the school doesn't care after you graduate as long as they get paid. And just so you know-I am not the student-I am the parent that wasted the money although my child now has a job that they found on their own oh but not as a med assistant."

"I attended this school in 2006-2007 and I am still having a hard time getting a job. I think their school is not teaching the right classes required for a job in the real world. I've had to take a job as a cashier to pay my bills. I am still looking. I am not getting any help from their job placement program after they shut down the Mather campus. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL."
