Graduation Year: 2011

Bad quality, after one year I can't found any job. They call just for say that you need to pay the loan, but they don't call for say We have some jobs opportunities for you. I was in three different Itt, Greenville SC., Miami Fl. and St. Petersburg Fl.

I not recommend this bad institute

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2012

I decided to go back to school for a career change after working in my current career for 25 years. My first degree was done at a community college and the difference between the community college and ITT-Tech is the level of focus that ITT-Tech gives you. There will be those out there that complain - those people will always complain saying they didn't get fair treatment. Your education is dependent upon how much you put into it. I felt like ITT-Tech was a good choice for me because I am too old to worry about electives (as I call foo foo classes), making it to a pep rally and all the other social stuff that young kids like.

I am serious about my new career and didn't go to school to see what they could do for me. I went to school to see what I could do for myself. ITT-Tech has some awesome student services if you just tap into them and take advantage of the knowledge they offer. I would recommend it if you want to get in and get out and not play around. Good luck!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: Dec 2012

I love it here I want to tell other people in life it is never to late to go back to school. I went back at 31 then drop out after taking 3 classes, i didin't have the support I needed then in 2001.

Know I do that is why im successfull in reaching my goal. I'm at the half way point to graduation.I want both of my Parent's there and my mother in law and family members to attended. That will be on of the best days of my life. I'm planning on attending for my bachelor's in March of 2013 for Project Management/Administration9(business).

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: Soon

I was attending a community college before ITT-Tech. I found that the underpaid professors and childish students combined for a distracted and simple-minded learning environment.

That being said, I started going to ITT-Tech and the curriculum was much harder; and everyone including the professors take school very seriously, unlike what people have been saying on here. It has been challenging; and because I have passion, study hard, and prioritize correctly, I have highest honors. I have job offers from Lockheed Martin, FBI, and several other major organizations. You have to work hard for the education. The professors are not supposed to hold your hand and change your diapers. They are there to guide you through the material and have office hours so you can take advantage of their knowledge.

If someone refuses to study outside of school and work hard, then they have no business complaining because a $10 an hour job is the best they are going to get. I have 2 children under 3 years old and I still make school my priority. School does not need to be flexible. We as students, are to hold school as most important. ITT-Tech is a great school and as you can see on these posts, it weeds out the LAZY and immature students, unlike many traditional schools.

My first class they already signed us into groups and we had a powerpoint due next class. For someone thats working I suggest you try miamidade or a regular college first.

These tech schools are extra difficult. I have a life outside of school and a job I didn't have time to call people and hang out and do a project for a class I was in for one day. It was ridiculous. But thats how those 2 year schools are. I suggest you save your wallet and take a little more time and relax and take school on your own time. You can even take 1 or 2 classes a week. Good luck guys :)

Please do not go to this school. After attending 7 months to this school I decided to go to my community college after reading all the bad reviews about this school and all the money I would be investing. First of all all the money you will end up paying here is not worth it. You really don't learn anything here.

You get A's and B's for just showing up to class and turning in your work which is no big deal. When given a test most of the teachers would give us the questions AND answers to study for it. I didn't find this right because you are not really learning. Some of the classes were the same, like I had two different classes yet everything they taught was the same.Anyway like I said I decided to go to my community college after 7 months. My community college said their credits were not transferable.

,p> A week after leaving I received a letter from ITT saying I owe $3,100 which I had to pay in a week(????). I didn't pay much attention thinking it was a mistake. Like 3 weeks later I received a call from a collection agency. I had to pay in full or else.

 

Where would I get that money just like that. They didn't care how I got it, either i payed up or my credit was ruined. They took out $1000 from one of my credit cards which they already had checked and now I am paying the rest in three payment. I am really disappointed in this school and will make sure to tell everyone I know about it. Don't make the mistake of going to this school, go to your community college.

Graduation Year: 2010

I have an A.A. in electronics engineering from this school, but yet I do not know the first thing about electronics. What a joke this place is.

They teach yo absolutely nothing about electronics. I have an entire tool box full of so-called class projects that we never even did. I thought maybe that the Bachelor program would be more serious and hands on, and maybe they would actually teach something, but I was dead wrong. In my Wirless Networking class, a Bachelors degree class, the instructor would bring a hackey sack to class and we would move all the desks out of the way and actually play hackey sack in class with the instructor.

Pleases beleive me when I say that ITT was the biggest mistake that I ever made. If you are thinking about going here, please do your research first. All they are really doing is selling you a very expensive yet worthless degree, and the only kinds of jobs they help you get are around $10 an hour. Who the hell can make a living and support a family on a $10 an hour job? The people at ITT should be ashamed of themselves.

I'm enrolled at the ITT tech Philadelphia campus. I find it great to be some where the staff is great all the way up to the Director of the facility. I had many doubts in the beginning, but those doubts weren’t about the school it were doubts about me. I felt that if I didn't apply myself to what I was doing and focus on completing it, then I was wasting my own time! After reading so many negative comments about the school I don't feel any different about ITT. Most of the people complaining are the people that are not applying their selves to what they're doing or set to do. As far the money financial aide was available here also a scholarship. I think it depends mostly on the location your school is at; of course there are bad schools around the world you have to pick something that best interest you. Another reason just sitting around the house and not making an attempt to educate your self on something is simply a waste of time!

People must realize that nothing is just handed to you, you have to earn it whether it's paying crazy amounts of money to get is dates back to the saying "Scared money, don't make money." The last thing I'm going to add here is for the people looking to start school period. Go into the institution, University or etc. and ask for your self and then be the judge of your own experience, just because someone else writes a bad experience doesn't mean you'll have one.

Graduation Year: 2013

I have my AA in Electronic Engineering from ITT. I got it becuase most jobs you go for ask for a degree. I have 6 years experiance in the military working on electronics but with out a little piece of paper none would hire me. Now I am getting job offers from FBI, CIA, DoD, privite contractors, government contractors, and major firms I.E. Intell, Google, Microsoft. And yes these all came from career services from the itt campus.

I beleave what I am saying is it all depends on your career field. CJ doesnt have a lot of job openings so yeah its hard to get into that. But you also have to look at where your going, they train in the technical and electronic sides of these fields. The ones that are unhappy with going to ITT most likely didnt do enough research on what they really wanted to do as a career.

I am about to graduate with an Associates degree in Criminal Justice. Readers should know that the core classes taught for this program are no more than that now taught in some teenage vocational schools which offer Criminal Justice! Those kids get it for free, yet we have to pay almost 50K!

Also, the program is NOT hands-on, but rather writing... and tons of it! Many instructors are not knowledgeable in the curriculum they are given to teach, and text books are outdated! Not to mention, all the classes are the same, covering the exact same content! You will NOT get a decent paying job with a two-year degree in Criminal Justice... think more along the lines of unarmed security guard, or retail loss prevention, which you can get without the degree. Maybe police officer if you're lucky!

They also have a three week rule for homework (supposedly) in which if your work is more than 3 weeks late, it won't be accepted. HA! I can't begin to tell you how many students are allowed to turn in work after that time period and still get full credit! Ridiculous! Especially to those of us who bust our rears to get assignments in on the date they're due! This is supposed to be a COLLEGE?! More like a free ride for the degree... might as well just have people pay the 50K and hand them the degree up front! DO NOT WASTE MONEY AT ITT!
