ITT Technical Institute Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (316)
No one hires ITT "graduates". I found this out the hard way. After putting my time, effort, and money into this worthless "school", I actually had an employer tell me that they will never hire an ITT graduate. His reasoning was that they didn't have any computer knowledge.
After some argument, he let me take the tests, and I was embarassed to find that he was right. Despite all my hard work and high GPA, I discovered to my dismay that I didn't know the first thing about anything. I know I worked hard. I know all the things ITT taught. Unfortunately, it's worthless.
I spent 7 weeks at ITT in Brooklyn Center, Mn. I encountered the most unbelievable amount of ineptitude I have ever witnessed in my life. The first few weeks they didn't even have their own IT person on staff!
I suffered through one mistake after another at the hands of the faculty. The entire atmosphere at the classes was nothing less than chaos and no one lifted a finger to stop it.
I went to ITT about 2 yrs ago and when I went I made sure I told them that I wanted everything to be student loans, I had to drop out about a yr in, in about a month I recieved papers from a collection agancy saying I owed money to the school, when I called the school they told me it was a temporary credit that they give to the students, this was news to me and the collection agency kept harrasing me.
I called BBB and got it out of collections but still owe the money directly to the school. WARNING: do not sign anything before you look and asked lots of question, I did all that and still got screwed ( $8000 screwed). I was not expecting this extra payment. Also the teachers are not very helpful, one math teacher did not even teach he expected you to know the material, as quoted by one teacher "You had this in High School". I was 46 at the time thats a long time and never took trig in school back then.
I feel sorry for anyone who waster their money with ITT. Avoid at all costs. Everything I tried to learn at ITT, I ended up having to take classes in elsewhere to actually learn. The teachers at ITT are clueless.
I am in my second semester at ITT tech obtaining an Associates in Network Systems Administration ( completely online). I have computer experience but I wanted to learn more about the Internet and how it works. ITT did let me know that I had to help along side with the faculty to recieve benefits thatthe school has to offer. I was just recently contracted for Hewlett Packard (HP) for a position that is in my field of study.
I believe you get out what you put in and if you don't put forth the effort to succeed in anything that you pursue, you will fail. I've heard nothing but bad reviews about this institution, but I have seen nothing wrong with it. I am moving along ata pretty fast pace and I am learning alot. If you want to attend a school that offers a pretty good curriculum, give ITT a shot.
After all the time and effort I spent on this, there was no pay-off. The instructors are bumbling idiots. Nothing ITT taught was helpful, and ITT doesn't seem to care. They don't promise a job. I understand that. What I don't understand is that they know there's no hope of ITT graduates getting a job, because the ITT is known to be a bad school.
ITT didn't teach me anything useful, and what they did teach was either incorrect or outdated.
ITT is big on virtual environments, which is fine when you already know what you're doing, but most students, like me, do not. Employers ask me about hands-on, or give tests where things are so different, I have no chance.
There is no IT knowledge or ability at this institution! They exist solely to make money. They do not screen their students, most of whom could not succeed at any school, and certainly have no chance here. This institution writes favorable reviews about themself, but truthfully, they are a blight to the IT field, and their "graduates" are an embarassment to the profession. Every person who "graduates" from this institution devalues the actual education and knowledge of actual IT professionals.
ITT's instructors can't even pass basic IT competency tests. The instructors are poor teachers, and can't seem to grasp the material. ITT is a detriment to any resume. They do send out resumes, yes, but basically infuriate the employers by sending unqualified people with exaggerated qualifications. ITT is just looking to take your money.
Whatever you do, do not let R.R. send out your resumes! She seems to be ignorant of the IT terms, and really doesn't care who she sends the resumes to, just so she can say she has sent them out. The career center is a joke. They don't know anything about resume writing. You'd do better on your own. ITT has no core competencies. Avoid ITT like the plague!
I haven't been to school in over 10 years. I didn't know where to start but I new the local university was going to be way more expensive and I wasn't going to be able to continue working full time. My fiance completed her Associates in Veterinary Technology and found a job within 2 months of finishing her last class. She is happy and is the only certified technician at the clinic she works in. I figured well if she could pull it off without having to go to a university why couldn't I? I looked into ITT and liked what I heard they were very upfront from the start. They let me know that they didn't guarantee jobs but they would do everything in their power to help while I was in school as well as after. I am only 1 quarter in and I already have them emailing me offers for internships.
I know these are jobs in the sense that I would be getting paid but the fact that most internships usually lead to full time employment and that they were already generating leads was reassuring. So far the instructors are upfront with how their curriculum is going to go and that the work lies on our shoulders like it does in any place of higher education. I read these negative reviews from people who say they went and are just so unhappy with the results. When did you figure it out? After you graduated? Probably not you probably figured it out you were unhappy sometime after you started. Why didn't you drop out? You wouldn't have had to pay for all the loans you took out if you did use them. It sounds like poor students with attitude problems. What's that old saying "Showing up is 80% of it" it's true, if you don't show up you don't get what you need to to get the work done. Maybe you just didn't ask any questions when you went in and now your pissed because you were ignorant.
I was told upfront that credit don't transfer to other colleges and that they only transfer to other ITT campuses. I was told that even if I sat down I would still have to pay 5k if I dropped out. This was for a portion of my loan that wasn't covered. I had no problem with that because it was upfront information. In closing I also find it hard to take a review from people that can't even spell correctly or use grammar that could pass as proper. I'm no English professor but at least it looks like I learned to read and write.
ITT offers nothing to those students who want a real education and something to be proud of when they complete their degree. They will let anyone in as long as they can recieve some kind of financial aid and get the school their money.
Most student would never make it in a real college but ITT gives them all degrees they dont deserve. There is no point in working hard at this school they give degrees that are equal to yours to student that just show up. ITT doesnt not value education or its student, they value money. If you have a full time job and do not recieve financial aid ITT will hunt you down, call you a dozen times a day for $2.00.
I would never attend this school again in my life. I was a CJ student wanting my BA, well after my first year and a half they did away with the CJ BA program. Not on teacher or faculty member told us this news. Students had to bring the subject up to them and when we did we never got a straight answer.
If you are a student looking for a school that will teach you something and get you ready for the future run far far away from this joke of a school. They are nothing but liars who care about money not you not its students.
