ITT Technical Institute Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (323)
I enrolled into ITT Tech. in the fall semester of 2010 and my expected date of graduation was december of 2012. I wil try to cover all aspects of what I experienced thus far. First financing, I was told when I signed the doted line that my total out of pocket expenses would have to be payed after I graduate. little to my knowledge I had to take a quarter of for family and personal reasons, then i had to fill a "drop class" paper that stated that i might not be able to finish the quarter if i did not make it back in time. I was ok with this, before hand i was aware that i did not have any outstanding balance to be payed before I took time off. Three days later i got a letter in the mail stating that i did indeed have a balance with the schools loan services and the amount due was $1,530.04 and I had 5 business days to pay it or it would be sent to collections. So not even two minutes later i received a call from the collection place to inform me that they needed a payment right away or it could damage my credit.
So with that in mind i made an appointment with the dean and the finance adviser and i did get it pushed back for 2 months but i was still not happy about it. On the other hand i went though 4 different teacher changes in 4 quarters each time and same with the finance department and even the dean.
the teachers they hire to not know crap about the programs nor do they care. I learned more by myself then what they have taught me . I have had harder classes in high school then here.
My advice to strong research and avoid this school and others like it as well its a scam and all they want is your $$$$$$$$$$ and nothing else. other schools such as Art institue. and ITT tech are all about money. i regret my decision and my $31,000 dollars or loan debt.
The most horrible decision I have ever made. Extremely over-priced for such an unsatisfying education. I would not recommend my time here to anyone. Horrible staff & horrible classes. Career Services wanted to give me a $9-$10 an hour job, but a $50,000 tuition to pay on. When you see all the teachers driving around in BMWs, Mercedes, and Infiniti vehicles... this is because they are taking your money that you pay to go here for their own selfish reasons.
They lie to you, and they want to manipulate you into attending this school. This was the biggest waste of my time and money. Thanks ITT Technical Institute for ruining my life.
The teachers were not knowledgeable and cared nothing about you as a student. After two years and $50,000 left with a worthless degree. Got no help looking for a job through career services. After two years haven't been able to find a job in my training so I thought I should go back to school None of the credits are transferable or accepted by any respectable school.
I'm in the nursing program with one year left. At first I liked it but I feel they do that to all new classes to get you in so deep that you would lose a lot of money to quit and look elsewhere for schooling. 3/4 of the way through our program they changed the academic requirements, you must now make a B in order to pass, that includes GE's and nursing classes.
The gave us the forms to sign saying we agree with their changes (which are often and boot camp style) and tell you if you refuse to sign them you can leave you can't return to any class until papers are signed which is forcing you to sign something you do not agree with. The nursing program is a new program and there are so many kinks in it right now I wouldn't know where to start. The teachers are not seasoned instructors and there is always a shortage of them. The class costs $40,000.00 more than any other traditional college. If I knew then what I know now there is absolutely no way in the world I would have enrolled her. I say run away...don't walk.
This school is grounded in a solid computer technical field, you will learn core courses and be able to review and challenge yourself for a career. The school will give you all that you want, but you have to do the work also, these are classes that require thought and knowledge in the choice you have taken for a career path. The instructors are cool, calm and collected, they are commited to your education, but lets be reasinable, they are human also, with human needs.
This is a Technical college, its fast paced , and the training comes at you hard and fast, its going to be up to you through discipline to conquer these classes,this is not a baby sitting school its for mature people, so for all these naysayer's i say , you are ignorant at best , find a school that does the work for you,then you can get by on other people's work. ITT is a great school. I highly recommend it. Best Wishes
This school is the biggest scam on planet earth!!! I enrolled in the RN Nursing program in June 2010. At first it was great! They had alot of kinks worked out and we had met with the Board of Nursing in our state and all was good. We have now been through 9 chairs of nursing and numerous professors. That all of a sudden we were told we had to have an 80% or higher to pass.
I agree most nursing school you ahve to maintain a high C or a B. This was ok for all my classmates were passing, but for upper classman not so great. They held 8 students back for making a 78-79.4% class average!!!
ITT will not be getting an additional 35,000 dollars due to those students having to retake the class. Speaking for our school our professors have been amazing as for cooperate they are a bunch of greedy horrible people that need to be stoppped. I do not recommend this school to anyone, the amount of stress we have all endured is enough to kill all of us.
I was accepted, and subsequently enrolled, into the ITT School of Nursing program in June of 2011. Our admissions class was informed by the Dean, and the Nursing Chairperson, in September, 2011, effective immediately, all final grades earned in ALL classes would have to be at an 80% or better, or it would be considered a "failure" for the course. You are allowed to accumulate only TWO failures, and then you are dismissed from the program.
At roughly $1,600 per month for tuition, it is expensive to make the choice to drop the class on or before week-9, and take it all over again in hopes of achieving a "B" or better final grade. Since the school lacks regional accreditation, the credit-hours do not readily transfer to other colleges. Make no mistake, the classes at ITT School of Nursing are challenging, and will keep you extremely busy with the workload of reading involved, plus, as a for-profit college, it is expensive!!
I began in June of 2011, and this new rule was enforced beginning in September of 2011, and already, I would guess, 1/3 of the students I began with this summer are now facing their first of two allowable strikes on their permanent record. None of us were told in June, 2011 that this major policy change was just around the corner. It caught everyone by surprise.
I don't know if other nursing schools have this policy, but I do tell all prospective ITT nursing school candidates to clarify this matter BEFORE enrolling and handing over your hard-earned money. It is definitely something you'll want to discuss with a school official as you make your decision on whether ITT is for you.
I was unsure of attending this college with the amount of negative reviews it has received, but I think it depends on the student's location. I was informed ahead of time all of my costs, and how much would be taken out for loans, so there were no surprises. I get a cost receipt at the beginning of each quarter as well.
I've been at this school for a year now, and in all of my classes you most definitely can fail. You can't just show up and get an A. I have yet to see any of these professors that just hand out A's, and I really don't want to meet them either.
At no point does anyone at ITT Tech state they will help you get a job. If you think they did, you heard them wrong. ITT does not help you get a job, although they will provide job opportunities, it is up to you to go get the job.
The classes I attended were well taught with instructors that lived the life and in some cases still were. How many colleges can say they have a retired police chief who was employeed as an FBI profiler teaching for them, not many.
ITT Tech is worth the money.
I would not recommend this school, it is a complete joke. I attended and graduate this school and they have not helped me find a job like they say they do. they just took me for all my money.
Everytime I called the career services department I never recieved a call back from them. None of there credits transfer to any other college, the instructors are lame and stupid. when applying for finacial aid, they cost so much that you have to get a private loan at 13% interest plus 2 other loans, now I have 12 pages of students loans on my credit report in excess of $93,000.00.
This school offers no i repeat no education at all and advertises false advertisement on TV. DO not make the same mistake I have and attend this school look into other options, because this is a private college which means $$$$$$$.
