Chris Ciero - 1/28/2019
Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2002
"I am a firm believer in education for many reasons. The foremost in thought is furthering one's abilities by learning from others in an education setting. This being said, as long as the institution follows the guidelines for teaching I believe that the student interaction with instructors is critical. Online, offline, in person, brick and mortar institutions are good, but an avid learner can learn anytime anywhere. This is what I did at school. I was paying for it, so I got the most out of it I could. While the institution no longer exists I credit them for helping me learn as they should. School helped me improve my job prospects. I met some excellent people and ended up deciding to go further with my education, but the key to my success was my attitude to learn and understand everything I could and is why I still am doing so to this day."

"Graduated from the electronics corse at ITT grand rapids, mi. Paid off all my loans painfully, I never got any employment in the field, or much help finding any from Itt employment services after graduating. Now I hear ITT is in trouble with the government and bankrupt! I want my money back. Let me know of any law suits concerning this."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2010
"When I attended orientation for ITT, I was rushed though the enrollment process and told to sign documents without them being explained to me very well. If I hesitated or pushed back they pushed harder that it was the best school. Of course at the time I was young and able to be bullied into many things. Needless to say I enrolled in October 2012 and throughout my next four years I experienced sexual harassment, and bulling by the teachers and staff. I reported each incident, and was always told it was documented. Many years later I found out that it was not. It is now my word versus theirs. My degree has earned me $160,000 worth of debt and a job that is not in my degree field. I have since returned to school to earn my Masters in Project Management in a effort to still have a good career from which I can retire. This money would help pay my ITT loans for 2.5 months while I attend another semester of school."

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 1996
"I attended ITT in 1995-96 and studied AutoCAD. I had a great experience at ITT and recommended it to many people over the years. The instructors were very knowledgeable and I learned more than I ever expected. My course of study covered all the mathematics, theory, lab work, and a few social and economic courses that were required. The school was accredited at the time I attended, and all of my credits transferred to a 4 year university that I currently attend to obtain my Masters Degree. I have heard people say that ITT credits don't transfer, but that is not correct. When I graduated, I was highly sought after and was offered many top positions in tech companies as a designer. It has served me well over the years and I owe it to ITT Tech. I understand that an education can only get you so far, but ITT gave me a great foundation to grow from. From reading some reviews, it sounds like some graduates expected to walk right into a job paying 60k a year. That can happen, but it's not a realistic expectation. Every individual is different, and they must continue to pound the pavement until they find a job. Just because you graduate from college doesn't mean you are guaranteed a great job right away. I have many friends who also attended ITT and they are all doing very well. Granted, they aren't all working in their field of study, but ITT gave them a platform in which to get their foot in the door somewhere."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016
"This school is now closed and filed for bankruptcy which I am glad before I went to far with the program. Financial aid was always to busy to get back to anyone and never gave you any detail about financial aid. The advisor assigned to you is no help as they tell you to talk with another form of administration for any questions. Teachers were put in classes to sub when they have no idea about the class. Some teachers don't provide a study guide or even tell you what's to study for finals, and if they do provide information it is the day of the final. This school was a waste of time and money. They were all about money, pushing you to take courses you don't belong in or coincide with your major."

"This is a good school. I did well here and now I have a job making 60,000. I took the information given and research more with in my field. School is what you make of it. This school gave me the information I needed to learn more. The hands on experience helped more."

"I received a great hands on education from professors which were as good as any in state colleges. I found an engineering position right after college graduation and continue to have a great position. The financial department made it clear at all points what the costs would be."

"I am very happy with the education I received and I had no problem getting job offers after I had my degree. Those that complain about the cost are being unfair to ITT, yes they are expensive but it is not hidden - you see and have to sign off on the cost. If it's too much for you, go somewhere else. Also, I have met many students that complain about job opportunities after receiving their degree but a degree does not entitle you to a job. Getting a job is not just based on education, it takes drive, networking and good sift skills. The teachers I had were great and qualified instructors, most of which are now teaching at top name colleges. I don't know the specifics of what the government says ITT is fraudulent in but it seems they are getting unfair treatment based on an abundance of naive people who think they can skim through getting a degree and be handed a $100K job without working for it."
