"I WAS currently attending ITT-Tech Houston, Tx! Before I start I just wanted to say that this is not the place for everyone. If you want to go for the experience? Go ahead, but be warned! This place isn't what they are cut out for everything they promised. YOU are just a starting number for them to further their paycheck. Every instructor that I had was not qualified to "teach" nor to really had that potential to teach a legitimate class. Believe me, I was extremely happy to be enrolled at first, but after sitting in my first class? I noticed that most of my instructors do not have a teaching profession and some doesn't seem to understand what they are teaching about. It is a great school to get the feel of how college is, but I have to honestly say, it's not the legit feel of a REAL college. IF you are SERIOUS about your education?? Save money or try investing in a better (or real) college that will be able to transfer your credits. I for one learn that the hard way and now I have a huge debt on my head that will take me awhile to pay off. Think really hard before attending this school because after you made up your mind and visited their school? Not only will they "close the deal", but your interest will be visualized differently, just remember that. Some may walk out with a CAREER job and MOST will not. A lot of career jobs they will not accept you if they see you have ITT on your resume due to the knowledge they have about ITT. Please DO take each comment into consideration and do your research. However? If you are truly curious and already have your mind set to enroll to ITT? I'm not stopping you, but please do take consideration and you're already warned by many."

A disappointed student - 3/17/2015
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

"This school was awful I am very good with computers and work well with others. This school did not make any sense, The work was unnecessarily hard, the teachers either gave me attitude or didn't know what they were talking about. In order for me to get a job in Chicago I had to delete the school from my resume. At one interview an employer said he would never hire those from itt tech because they do not support any current technology. I am stuck with a $13000 bill that has only diminished my opportunity in a big city. I am telling anyone that reads these reviews please take every review into consideration."

"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."

"Waste of time, money, and receiving a proper knowledge in the field of study. Instructors, program director was one of those that liked to belittle the students. If the students had questions you were mocked by the program director. Nothing in most of the classes were taught in an organized manner in order for the students to gain the foundation required in the field. Do not enroll. Please just attend a traditional school for your future sake."

"Well, here I am again talking about ITT TECH in Center City Philly. I am in my 6 quarter and 2 more to go. I am so glad it is almost over but it has been great. I've learned a lot from this school and I'm sure I will find a job in my field. I'm a little nervice because I know that I have so many oppertunites now I don't know what I want to do. All I can say is that it feels good to know that the skies the limit and ITT TECH has done that for me. It is a great school. Don't listen to the negative comments on this site because everything is not for every body, find out for yourself."

"While ITT has some of the best instructors in their fields, the way the school is run takes away from that. The students control the classes and most of them attend every other week just to keep their GI bill income coming. The instructors almost can't fail students if they want to keep their jobs, a failing student is a black mark on the instructor. ITT is all about the money, if students fail, they drop out and the school loses money and that's a big no no. Don't get me wrong, I would say about 20% of the students really care about their education and go the extra mile for their future, but the other 80% don't give a crap and they hurt the classes. I am a veteran, and I used my VA assistance 20 years ago to obtain an AS degree in Computer Aiding Drafting (CADD). 1 year after I graduated I decided I wanted to finish my Bachelors and started applying to universities. Guess what, not a single other school in the country would accept a single credit from my ITT degree. Left angry and stubborn, I was not going to throw away 18 months, 5 nights a week, 4 hour a night hard work and start completely over. Two years ago I discovered that ITT now had Bachelors degrees and after a visit to the campus was told that while the AS is still not recognized, the Bachelors degree was accepted by all major universities around the country. SO I signed up and off to finish my bachelors I went. I am six weeks from graduating and am going on to to my masters. One of the schools I choose was NOVA, but guess what I found out again? Nova along with other regionally accredited universities will not accept my BS from ITT Tech, the recruiter about choked trying not to laugh at me. You see, ITT technically isn't lying when they ay major universities accept their Bachelors degrees, just not the ones that hold any prestigious standings.One example is the University of Phoenix, another for profit, expensive school that is "Nationally Accredited" university like ITT and just want your money. They will take any student that has a "B" average from any school. But, Phoenix has the same reputation as ITT does in the job market, poor. Most employers won't recognize Phoenix or ITT's degrees as legit. So, would I recommend anyone going to ITT, "HELL NO" !!! Through some research and the help of one of my Doctorate level instructors, I was led to Devry. Now don't get me wrong, Devry isn't a Yale or Harvard, but they are Regionally accredited and accept ITT Grads with a 3.5 GPA or higher. And, after doing a lot of research I am finding that Devry is a far more reputable college and their job placement rate with higher paying jobs for their grads is quite impressive. While I am starting my Masters there this summer a few months after I graduate from ITT, the Masters is not their only program. They have Bachelors as well and it it recognized by other universities.I urge any one you reading this to research your schools of choice, look at their accreditation's, the cost, and what other universities will accept the degree and be sure you are getting what you are paying for. Not just the money, the the time and energy you spend earning that degree. There are other good choices out there besides DeVry, search the internet and find them, BUT STAY AWAY FROM ITT TECHNICAL INSTITUTE they are a complete waste of your time and money."
