"PTC is going downhill fast. College is $10 Million + in debt. Enrollment is a fraction of what it once was and about 25% of the employees remain. I saw the decline happen over the last few years. I am glad I just graduated. All the teachers don't care and morale is extremely low. They even got rid of all the trashcans on campus except a few to try and save money. Don't believe me? Just ask them or look up their non-profit financial statements or watch a campus meeting recording. College will close in a short time just like the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Stay far away from this place unless you want your education to be interrupted. President only does things for show and is totally self-absorbed. Was a great place but non longer the case. All the great teachers were fired, laid-off, or left due to leadership, pay/benefits cuts, etc. Save yourself the hassle and go to a school that is run correctly where you can get an education from a college that actually cares about your success and not just view you as a stream of income. You cannot say you haven't been told."

"Hello my name is Mercedes. I attend Pti online. I LOVE this school! I use to attend a campus college. I am a single mom of two children. So it was extremely difficult to attend a campus based school and trying to find babysitters.Not only that the school was the only one close enough for me to attend and when it came time to chose a career path they offer NOTHING I was interested in.. Online was a better choice for me in the long run plus they had what i wanted to go for Medical office administration!! A plus is they have a virtual live class room with your teachers its a great way to learn when your actually have someone teaching you and not just reading and guessing!!"

"I am a 40+ year old attending college for the first time in my life. It has always been my hope and dream to attend college but for many mid-lifers, LIFE just happens. Kids, daily struggles, and financial obligations keep us from pursuing further education.I have worked in the same career for over 14 years. I have a good deal of experience, yet nothing concrete to backup my extensive work experience. This recent awareness has revealed that employers rarely recognize the skills you have without some form of education. Should I accept my fate? Or stand up and say "Only I" can change the direction of my life!!The entire ITT administration staff go out of their way to assist in exploring all avenues to your successful education experience. They have all been supportive and accessible from day one.My final decision to attend ITT was based on the services ITT offers, which is included in the tuition cost. I researched other colleges, from community to state and they all had hidden fees. Books, Labs and tutoring were added fees not included in their tuition.I believe you are obliged to take charge of your life and only then will you see new opportunities exhibit themselves."
