ITT Technical Institute Reviews - CLOSED
Student & Graduate Reviews (318)
The teacher at the Jacksonville school is a joke. One of my teachers was so bad, that she had to sit in on a another class, just to learn to be a better teacher. They give you the round around, the cost to go there for a two year degree is crazy. I hope that they go under real soon. Run the other way from itt-tech.
I did a 3 month semester ($6384.56), in CEET. The computer training was the History of computers, (like that is what I need to learn and pay for!) the other 2 classes were learning Word and Excel programing, I didn't get much out of this class but a good book. And my math class, A good teacher, but I passed with an A, and I did not know what I was doing, I-TT telling me I don't need a refresher course first, when I clearly did, being out of school 25 years. So I went to another school for math and I am confident they dont pass you just for your money. P.S. my student loan $4903.49 and out of pocket $1481.07 They expect now 6 months after out of there school so $6384.56 for NOTHING.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK before signing anything!
When it first started they gave me a cheesy math class with half writeing, and I learned very little as they would just keep moveing on with stuff. Throw in some little english paragraph class, and a basic intro to pc that was very uninformative.
They will make the class so easy in the begining that you get a high grade. The Math instructor gave out all the answers for the class, and I got an A without knowing anything.
The next one the teacher would just goof off and joke around, and skip material and basically gave the impression that it was not important. Then I get to the actual IT class and the teacher does a hour of talking then throws you in the lab. The thing I see is like this. They just give you some work to do on there computers, and dont even show you anything.
This is the way it works teacher talks, then the other 2 1/2 hours the rest is up to you,, Yhea they will help you, but for maybee 1 minit then move on. I hated it, its not what I thought it was.
I feel like its a rip off. If you know alot about computers, and can learn more,,, do the school. If you dont know anything,,, I wouldent recomend it to anyone but experienced computer workers. At this time, I am about to quit, probobly. I havent learned anything I couldent have found on the internet, or reading a Dummy's Book.
I am a 2003 grad of ITT Tech with a degree in CEET. In the 7 years since I have graduated I have had a successful career. Not because of ITT but my personal drive. If you are complaining because of your lack of success your maliace is misdirected.
Even with that said I do not recommend ITT because there are community and a state colleges that are cheaper and better respected.
ITT is Nationally accredited, meaning that there is a standard requirements in their curriculum.
So in short ITT grads are as capable as anyone else, but if you are considering to go there the cost is not worth the money. I truly hope this helps!
I have really enjoyed ITT, it is very friendly and you feel like the staff and faculty is really invested in your success. These people who sit on here and complain are the ones who will never succeed anyway, they are spending all their time on the internet complaining.
ITT has tens of thousands of graduates who are out working in their field. And its not true the the federal government doesn't hire ITT grads. The CIA and FBI have active connections with ITT's career services. So do real research and stop reading these blogs. People who are successful and hard-working don't have time to post complaints online.
Go out and talk to area employers about what they would think of ITT degrees. Remember, a degree is really just a tool to get in the door of a company, your career advancement is almost never based on your degree, but rather on your competence and hard work.
I just started my fifth quarter at ITT in Sylmar, Ca and I have nothing but good things to say. I don't know why people are complaining about the school. Obviously some people don't read the fine print on the contract and all the other paper work handed to them. ITT DOES NOT just hand out degrees.
I have actually worked really hard to get where I am, and it's all thanks to my instructors. All of them have offered tutoring for the whole class. I don't understand why people don't aren't persistent if they are having issues with an instructor or with the school.
I attended L.A. Mission College right out of high school for two years and I was only able to pass a total of three classes because when I asked the teacher for help on the subject, they would direct me to some other teacher for tutoring.
Also, I was never able to get financial aid because my so called counselor was never in, or they told me to make an appointment because they were always on vacation. All of my ITT instructors send me e-mails at least three times a quarter asking how I'm doing in the class and if I am having any trouble understanding the course work.
Maybe it's the program people decide to go into. I have chosen the HIT program and it was recently accredited, so when I graduate I will graduate with an AS in RHIT. All I'm saying is read EVERYTHING before you decide to join ANY school. Not every school or program is for everyone. Also, look what accreditations, credentials, certifications, ect. the school has. If you dont do that before you attend you're pretty much setting your self up to fail.
Im set to graduate in 9 weeks. I'm getting an associates degree in their CEET program. I've had two friends who have attended this school and received the same degree, and they both came straight out of it making 45,000 a year w/benefits. I seem to have a few job offers, and am thinking about attending their 4 year program.
Before attending ITT I went to a local CC, and all I can say is FUCK THEM. People are complaining on here about the teachers and coarses...at least the coarse is set. When you start, they hand you a piece of paper saying, here, this is what your going to take, start to end, and when your done, you get a degree.
Not at a CC, (at least not mine (mott)) They constantly changed their requirements for graduation, and it seemed like the councilors didn't know what was going on.
The teachers I've had have been for the most part great. Ive never had such good math, english, and electronics teachers. Ive had a couple ones that I didn't care for (literally a couple, you know...2) But I feel like ive learned alot. When you go in they tell you that credits don't transfer, its no secret.
Its expensive, and I really don't think CJ is a good idea unless your really dedicated to getting a job and doing footwork...across the country.
I do notice that you can fake your way through it a bit. although i will say alot of people got weeded out at about the halfway point, my class started with around 70 kids, now there's like, 14. I will say there is one guy in my class that doesn't know a whole lot, he crutches off his friends.
I will be updating when I graduate, I'm going to start applying for jobs this next week, I'll let you know how it goes.
I have always been interested in Criminal Justice. While i was in high school that is what I knew I wanted to do. So I decided to go to ITT tech i read it was easy, fun,you make money and all the good stuff you want to hear and it was close to home so that was a plus.
NOw I have completed 4 quarters and since the day I have started attending that school I was skeptical I am a 20 year old female I would have to say it was the worse decision I have ever made.
Not only is it majorly expensive and you have to be careful how you use your money they just take it and steal it and they dont even care about you they dont care about if you pass your classes or your future. It is just all around bad. I was trying hard to look for good reviews to continue my education at ITT. But the truth is there is no education at ITT Tech.
I am sad to say I am foolish for wanting to take the easy route and now im about 14,000 dollars in depth and have to start all over again. A lot of students there dont like it there many just want to finish and see where it takes them but not me I am tired of all of it and wont waste my time anymore.
Im ready to learn go to a real college and earn my grades and its not burning my pocket. If you decide you want to go to itt just be carefull dont do it because once you get there you will regret it for the rest of your life. sad sad sad
I attended ITT this past quater. I really loved the course work online, but I was saddened after enrollment -THEY DO NOT TELL YOU. It is only Nationally accredited. Course work will not transfer to a Junior College, State University, PLEASE understand most employeers will not hire you unless the college is REGIONALLY accredited!
The Federal Government and the State Governments will not hire you with an ITT DEGREE...They only accept a degree from a Regionally accredited college or university. ITT has not proven itself to the National College Board to be successful in its teachings. If you attend and get a National Accreditation DEGREE from ITT you will not be able to use it for a JOB...How are you going to pay off the large debt of a STUDENT LOAN...
Believe me...I went for 1 QUARTER and now I am left with a $6,000 debt with a Student loan..about $500 per credit hour (3 Courses) at 4 Credit hours each....
ITT Tech is not for everyone. I have been there a year and I feel like its a waste of my money, there are people there that will get a degree and mess things up for people like me that have learned something. The teachers are egotistic jerks and are more into the girls than teaching the class. Every once in a while you will find a good teacher. I think in any school you go to, its the students responsibility to learn as much as possible. ITT Tech hasnt found me a job but I have found that jobs take me more serious that I am in school.
