ITT Technical Institute Reviews - Associate in - CLOSED
Okay, where to start. Well my fiance and I went to this school to just check it out. Well the lady trying to get us to join, was basically shoving the school down our throats to join that day and made me feel rushed. My fiance joined that day, but I waited later that week because I had to talk to the head person. After talking to the head guy, she was talked into it down. After talking with another recruiter, I joined. I should have went with my gut and not joined. Honestly I didn't learn much from the teachers, and basically this could have been a online class. Saying this because all the "teaching" was literally online.. To sum it up don't go here, it is not worth it. But the teachers were nice, I'll give them that.
Recently graduated from ITT and still looking,most of my job leads come from Indeed.com and what comes from my school has very little with what I attended for. I have a degree in electronics and just had an interview for a job fabricating industrial filters through a temp agency and they received my resume through the career counselor of my school. As they say "passing the buck".
Attending ITT was the worst decision I have ever made. I used to to work in a lot of blue collar jobs, factories, driving jobs etc. I went to ITT because I wanted a brighter future. I worked hard for two years and graduated. I sent out hundreds upon hundreds of resumes. I applied for positions all over the country and some out of the country. If I received a response at all it was typically that my degree was not good enough and would need further education to even be considered for interview. Eventually the "Career Assistance Department" at ITT found a position for which I could apply. I ended up taking the job because I needed any kind of job. It was a job that had nothing to do with my degree and was a position I could have attained with a high school diploma. I was naive and ill prepared when I applied for classes. I should have searched for grants/aid, things like that. When I spoke to the financial people at ITT they asked me if I was a veteran (no), if I was married (no), if I had any children (no), so they stated I would probably not qualify for aid so they set me up with loans. In the end the loans were not enough and I had to borrow $800.00 from family to be able to graduate. I would never recommend anyone going to this "school". They only want your money and nothing else.
Was not able to hold a job after graduation. Everywhere I work I was downsized or laid off. Tuition for this school is outrageous. Wish that they would tell you the real cost during sign up and not just the per credit price. There was little to no help from the career services department. Felt that you were taught specifically just the criteria on the tests and quizzes, which were all multiple choice. Overall just a bad experience and in debt for life now.
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.
After completing a few courses with ITT, I decided to transfer to the local college to get some actually classroom time. I found out quickly, that the local community college and even the other colleges and universities near by would not accept one credit from ITT. SO long story short, i would not even waste your time with this place. If local colleges wont accept it, then what about when time comes to find a job. How will employers look at ITT on the resume..
Being all honest and upfront. I would not recommend going to ITT for school. The price you pay for your degree is ridiculous, you WILL be owing A LOT of money. Do research on COST not just commercial BS. Don't be fooled by commercials. I got my Associates from ITT, but then went on to UMUC to get my Bachelors degree, I am earning 23K more a year just by getting my Bachelors and getting a new job. Look into online schools and you will pay much less for them than for ITT and have a much wider range of job opportunities. You are limited to job opportunities when graduate from a Technical school compared to a non-technical.
If you are serious about your education, then don’t attend this campus? I can’t speak for all of their schools, because I didn’t go to them. I would review this one, far as buildings go, location isn’t bad. Far as the administration on the education side, there seems to be no leadership. I had no issues with the finance, or the registration of classes. The most disappointing part of my experiences at that school was the accountability factor. Almost all of the teachers there don’t have a teaching degree. They may have some years in their particular field, but that shouldn’t qualify you to teach. Nobody holds the teachers accountable for not having a lesson plan prepared, some don’t even look at the lesson until they walk in the doors to “teach”. Because it’s a school for profit too many students are just passed alone to the next semester to keep money coming in. And the students who suffer are the ones serious about learning. I spent way too many hours in class, in what were consider my core subjects in computer technology, because the teacher had to help do basic stuff. Like figuring out where a student saved a file, or how to even use Microsoft Word. I say this as a student who upon leaving earned a 3.9 GPA, so this isn’t coming from a poor student. I finally had enough of poor teaching, terrible mismanagement from the administration. I left after a year, to attend a school that gives you an education not a piece of paper when you graduate. So in closing I reiterate, if you want a school who will just pass you without much effort then this is the place for you. If you are like me and want an education, something of value in the work place, and where teachers are serious about the assignments and what is taught, then don’t go to this school. Sincerely, a disappointed student.
The Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies (ASPLS) IS NOT ABA APPROVED in California. Therefore and although I have spend time and money on a "degree" it is not worth the paper it was printed on.
I'm about to graduate from ITT Tech and I'm noticing that this school is literally nothing but a selfish piece of shit. Not only have I found out that I owe the school thousands of dollars for a loan I don't remember signing up for in the beginning, but I'm also seeing that most other schools I've applied to, to get my BS won't take my credits. My chairman had to recommend one college that wouldn't be stealing money out of my pockets just so I could finish my degree. The school's staff in the main office is nothing but a bunch of dicks that don't want to help you when it comes to paying back the schools temporary loan. I just want to put out there to people that are thinking about attending ITT Tech. Please don't. Save your money and go to a better college that actually has transferable credits and where you probably won't have to pay the school back any money.
