Worst mistake of my life! Don't get scammed like me and 1000's of others!! A worthless degree and a lifetime of debt! Their education is lacking in every single way! Teachers teaching what they know nothing at all about! Run run run run far away!!!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2010

Do not attend, it's a joke of school. It will just get you debt. Degree is not accepted anywhere. A lot of empty promises, from administration and career services. You will get nothing except large debt bill and harassing calls from debtors. You will become laughing stock for employers.

Degree: Communications Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2012

RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN. This is the worst school ever. Worthless degree and stuck with thousands in loans. Was never told I was in a pilot program until half way through my studies. Promised the world and was given a lump of crap. Lies lies lies! Career services did nothing and was sent to jobs interviews not even related to what I studied. Please look into the lawsuit they have against them by the government before you too fall into this trap.

Degree: Computer Systems Networking and Telecommunications
Graduation Year: 2008

I graduated over 7 years ago and I've never been hired using the 'degree' I got from this school. I have several times been told during interviews that I could not be hired because of my degree from ITT. All I got was debt that'll never go away. I also don't actually have the paper degree. Right before I was set to graduate they told me I still owed the school $1400 and I could walk in the ceremony but I wouldn't get the actual degree until I paid. I don't want it so they can keep it. Avoid this school. Go to a community collage and get their 2 year degree and transfer to a university. ITT credits DO NOT transfer to any other school. If they told you they do, they lied. Avoid this scam of a school at all cost. My credit is ruined because of them.

Degree: Visual Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

I am actually quite surprised to see that there are some positive reviews about this school. Going to ITT Tech in Earth City, MO was one of the worst financial mistakes I have ever made in my entire life. When I first started going there I was looking forward to bettering my life and getting out of the funk I was in. My first initial thoughts, during the intro courses, was that it was a watered down version of high school. I looked passed it and was anxious to get into the hands on technical/software stuff I was already good at. I showed up every day and never missed class. I received a 4.0 GPA and was initiated into the National Technical Honor Society. I overlooked the fact that some students barely showed up and barely even did any work and still managed to pass..I figured you get out of school what you put into it and worked hard. After my first year I really started to panic when the school started to show its true colors. I would be pulled into the Financial Aid department constantly being forced to sign stuff, being told if I didn't 'act fast' my funding would run out and I wouldn't be able to get my Associate's Degree (I didn't know at the time but this was their PEAKS private loans they dupe students into signing up for which is the schools high interest SCAM private loans). Some of the instructors looked like they were picked up off of the streets, had absolutely no clue what they were teaching and couldn't answer basic questions. In some courses we even had some students getting up to teach the class. I paid 10 times the price for books we never used..one classes book was even "website for dummies"..which was when I really started to feel like a dummy for being duped into going to this fake institution. Our career Services Department was a joke they would copy and paste SCAM emails from indeed or other job listing sites. My last day at this school was when I received a scam email from career services. I showed it to my boss at the time who went down to the school personally and put them in their place. They had the audacity to call me and berate me for having done that which I found completely unprofessional. I tried to bring this to my chair who just swept it under the rug and told me "don't worry about it they won't even remember who you are by tomorrow." I said a few choice words to him on my way out the door and never came back. Now I have a worthless Associates Degree I spent over $70,000 for in Federal Student Loans and another $10,000 in private loans. I don't even work in the field I went to school for. This school by the way is being sued by a few Attorney Generals, the CFPB, and the SEC. The CEOs were found to have been lying to investors about their fraudulent private loan system. The list goes on...just do yourself a favor and stay away from this school. If you don't have any scholarships to go to a University go to a community college. You can thank me later.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

Half way through my degree they closed it down and forced me into another degree. They also expelled me for missing 9 days classes due to medical and refused to except my docters notice of absence. They also took loans out under my name and esigned for them without my knowledge. If you are concidering itt tech as your college of choice it would be cheeper to just go to a state university or community college. I know owe close to $100,000 in student loans for a degree that was taken away thanks to corporate greed.

Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2006

Attending ITT was the worst decision I have ever made. I used to to work in a lot of blue collar jobs, factories, driving jobs etc. I went to ITT because I wanted a brighter future. I worked hard for two years and graduated. I sent out hundreds upon hundreds of resumes. I applied for positions all over the country and some out of the country. If I received a response at all it was typically that my degree was not good enough and would need further education to even be considered for interview. Eventually the "Career Assistance Department" at ITT found a position for which I could apply. I ended up taking the job because I needed any kind of job. It was a job that had nothing to do with my degree and was a position I could have attained with a high school diploma. I was naive and ill prepared when I applied for classes. I should have searched for grants/aid, things like that. When I spoke to the financial people at ITT they asked me if I was a veteran (no), if I was married (no), if I had any children (no), so they stated I would probably not qualify for aid so they set me up with loans. In the end the loans were not enough and I had to borrow $800.00 from family to be able to graduate. I would never recommend anyone going to this "school". They only want your money and nothing else.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Acute Care)
Graduation Year: 2014

Worst school ever. So disorganized and a joke for an education. Not to mention it is a complete rip off. I'm currently $60,000 in debt and no one will hire me because of my useless ITT diploma. The school I was attending was in Merrillville, IN and is currently under suspension. Go figure. Avoid this dump at all costs.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2011

It's been 4 years since getting my degree and a dead fish has more value than the 40+k I'm in the hole for a useless piece of paper. I regret ever going to this school, went to make a better future and it's been nothing but a nightmare. It should be illegal for schools to make use false hope to bring in students to fill their pockets.

Degree: Video Game Design
Graduation Year: 2013

3.5 years & $68,000 of debt and not one single company I've interviewed at acknowledged ITT's degree program and then followed up with "sorry you wasted so much time and money" even with having perfect attendance and highest honors nearly every semester it got me nothing, accept debt and no career. So unless you want to waste money and end up back in a dead end job I would find a different school
