ITT Technical Institute Reviews - CLOSED

Graduated from the electronics corse at ITT grand rapids, mi. Paid off all my loans painfully, I never got any employment in the field, or much help finding any from Itt employment services after graduating. Now I hear ITT is in trouble with the government and bankrupt! I want my money back. Let me know of any law suits concerning this.
When I attended orientation for ITT, I was rushed though the enrollment process and told to sign documents without them being explained to me very well. If I hesitated or pushed back they pushed harder that it was the best school. Of course at the time I was young and able to be bullied into many things. Needless to say I enrolled in October 2012 and throughout my next four years I experienced sexual harassment, and bulling by the teachers and staff. I reported each incident, and was always told it was documented. Many years later I found out that it was not. It is now my word versus theirs. My degree has earned me $160,000 worth of debt and a job that is not in my degree field. I have since returned to school to earn my Masters in Project Management in a effort to still have a good career from which I can retire. This money would help pay my ITT loans for 2.5 months while I attend another semester of school.
This school is now closed and filed for bankruptcy which I am glad before I went to far with the program. Financial aid was always to busy to get back to anyone and never gave you any detail about financial aid. The advisor assigned to you is no help as they tell you to talk with another form of administration for any questions. Teachers were put in classes to sub when they have no idea about the class. Some teachers don't provide a study guide or even tell you what's to study for finals, and if they do provide information it is the day of the final. This school was a waste of time and money. They were all about money, pushing you to take courses you don't belong in or coincide with your major.
I attended this school hoping I would learn a few things about Internet security. I did, but also accrued over $20,000 in debt, which wasn't worth it in the least. They gave me a computer for all my troubles and it even included Widows. However it was a pirated version, which tells you a lot about the school itself. If you're going to go into debt for school, it might as well be legitimate. I switched to Linux. You might want to do the same thing. Instead of going to this school just learn it on your own.
For the love of everything, do not attend this school. They sucker you in by promising a career and a usable diploma. But wait, its not a diploma, its a certificate that is a useless, $65k piece of paper. Luckily, I escaped this death trap after sinking in 12k for two quarters. My first quarter consisted of two completely useless classes that are "prerequisites" for your actual major. One class is basically how not to suck at school, and the other is "hey this is a computer, did you know that?" Then comes second quarter, where it can be seen the teachers do not care at all. Class time is in two phases: lecture and then lab. The lectures are truly brilliant. The "professors" read off of a corporate generated Powerpoint, where about half way through each one they begin quickly flipping through slides saying its not important. Then why is it there?? After the astonishing presentation, they show you a few YouTube videos on what you're learning which was the final straw for me. I am not paying a corporation (key word corporation) $6k per quarter to watch YouTube videos that I can find on my own. My final project in one of my classes was creating my own website which I achieved, but only because I watched a one hour HTML and CSS tutorial that taught me more than my classes did the entire quarter. ITT Tech is a scam, all they want is your money, and they do not care. I am lucky to have come to my senses before paying a full $65k for a certificate that doesn't hold the same worth as an A.A. Save yourself time, and save your own money by simply attending your local community college and get an education that is a hundred times better in quality, for a TINY FRACTION of what this "school" will cost you. At least that degree will be useable and you have the option of even continuing your education elsewhere.
This place is the biggest scam ever. Stay away. Don't waste your money. They only want your money. They lost their most important accreditation. They no longer issue useless diplomas, yiu now get a certificate. The credits you think you've earned are not transferable. It is a pyramid scheme, only the people at the top make money. Don't go.
HELLO FUTURE RN'S. DO NOT GO TO ITT TECH FOR NURSING!!THIS PROGRAM IS $54000 FOR AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE. THEY ARE VERY UNORGANIZED AND THEY ARE ALSO BEING INVESTIGATED FOR PREDATORY LENDING WITH PENDING LAWSUITS! TRUST ME YOU CAN FIND A BETTER SCHOOL!!!
I recommend you stay FAR FAR away from this school..I wouldn't suggest it to even a person I hate..This school will lie to your face promising you all these things you achieve..the people there may be nice but personality can only get you so far..I signed up for this school with the hopes and dreams to learn how to make games and do coding..and let me tell you,you will never touch any of those subjects. There books are OLD givingyo u obsolete information..it's like there stuck in a time warp..half my teachers there didn't even have a degree in the field they were trying to teach me...i mean what can a soon to be shrink have to teach me about coding? NOTHING..It felt more like a personal development class where we would just talk about ourselves and our emotions...i refused to go into debt for a school that teaches me nothing..plz plz stay far away from this school..its like someone offering a dead bird to you in exchange for money..you will learn NOTHING
School is what you make of it, but this school was just bad. bad teachers and bad classes. Teachers don't teach and most of them don't seem to care if you are learning or not. As long as you attend every class you are guaranteed a passing grade, regardless if you do your work or not. The school gets paid for student attendance and that is what matters to them. Their degree is not accepted at all in 90% of companies out there. You basically spend 75k (4 years) for something worthless. then come the bills and student debt. Sally Mae and now Navient will chase you down and garnish your wages if you don't pay this high interest loans. There is a group in FB that is fighting to get this school under like Everest and Corinthians. Look them up, ITT warriors its the name. Currently we need signatures and stories to be send to the department of ED, but the deadline is 4/7/16. Get your chance in to get back at this shady school.
The college is a joke. I have instructors teaching English but don't speak it, teaching Linux but openly admit they have never used it or experienced it aside from what the book says, and teachers who give grades for nothing. For example, I submitted a paper with the following "Hello, my name is Jerid" Copy and pasted for 5 pages. I got a 100% on that. My courses are all online based, and I needed help in my college math. I drove to the campus in Grand rapids some 45 miles away, only to be told I need to leave and seek help via online tutors as the campus is not allowed to assist me. Now im dealing with a death in the family, and while arranging funeral related events I have neglected my course work. The instructors response, "You are not busy 24 hours out of the day. You need to better micro manage your time and get me your assignments." Seriously? This school or atleast the online only version of it is pure rubbish. I wish I never started it because while my aim is IT Cyber security, I have found that we learn entry level nothing. I know basic coding, have a masters certificate in Hardware, and ever microsoft operating system from Windows 95 to Windows 10, but they count for nothing. My military training, counts for nothing. My former college credits including core class credits count for nothing. My employer does not recognize this "Nationally" accredited college due to past issues of document falsification so there is no ED assist grants for that. The federal Government (My ultimate goal or career path) no longer recognizes the cyber security program from this school. I feel really lied to and mislead. So far its cost me around $15,000 and im not sure how to get away from that.
