Apparently you never went to ITT Tech or dropped out early to actually give it a chance. Many of us current students and graduates have landed high paying jobs with the degrees that we have earned.

The one thing I like about ITT, you don't have to take courses that are unrelated towards your future field and everything is literally portable within your hand. I don't have to carry a heavy textbook and have had great experience with the staff!

Sure they are making profit, but all colleges do! Just be pissed off that tuition is expensive everywhere!

I'm also in the process of trying to recoup the over 40K I'm out because of ITT Tech. I attended the San Diego campus for less than a year, after the first few months I knew there was a problem.

The Teachers knew nothing about the subjects we we're signed up for, one of my Teachers told our class to go home early and not to worry just to make sure we put our names on the sign up sheet. Yea I learned a lot in that class. My Auto Cad Teacher asked us to register with "Harmony.com" and then write about our experience. WHAT?

What did that have to do with Auto Cad!? I'm over 40K in debt because of ITT Tech and have NO degree to show for it. I spent 40K on a few books.. Thanks ITT !

I don't understand how ITT can continue to receive government grants and funding for students!

It seems fraudulent to me.

:( :( :(

Decided to post some about my experience with ITT. First off ITT is a technical institute not a university so your culture at the school is going to be different. I had professors who work in the field and are really good at there jobs. When they teach, they focus on the core material. This happens when you do get a good professor, however when you find a Itt tech that is trying to compete with a university, you may find yourself getting into an Itt that teaches by the rules of the curriculum, which I was not a fan of. Make sure you do your homework when picking a school. Itt is accredited by a different agency then most universities, so this makes it harder to transfer credits to that fancy university name you want to go to later. Once again I go back to my comment about university versus institute. One disadvantage I don't like is that the schools financial aid gives more money to the lower income. Which means you have middle income that is 50/50 on going to the school to pay 80k, more lower income getting away with sitting in the class and not doing nothing because they can get a paper and barely pass or learn anything, and the higher income who can afford to pay it off for a piece of paper. :upset

So with that being said, what do you do? It all depends on what you want to do and your situation. I had the experience and knowledge of a couple certifications, but because I am just now finding out after I graduated that I have OCD, I could not pass my certifations because I did not have enough time to take them. So I would get interviews that would require me to have a bachelors degree and they would not hire me cause I didn't have the paper. I even had a job offer for 100k and I was barley done my associates. So keep in mind, if you struggle with college, try an institute that can give you a degree, but make sure you learn and gain expience so you can talk the walk because no one is going to hire you with good pay unless you really know what your doing.

I am just going to note here that I didn't have much luck with Itt career services, but I did get interviews with places. I am very picky about where and who I want to work for. The job I have now.... I applied for once with itt's help and never got a call. Then a few months later the job was posted again and Itt told me about it. Itt called the company and talked to the hr person and put in a really good word for me because I was head of my class. Then I got the interview and the rest played out the way I made it.

Another thing to keep in mind, the degree programs Itt offers is well rounded. I actually got an interview with a government contractor, one of the best in the nation because I had so much well rounded knowledge. They were impressed that I knew so much Linux, windows, Cisco, cyber security, electronics (this was a hobbie of mine), VMware, VoIP, and more. I actually was a last minute call for the position and one of the last they interviewed, and they told me I was one of the best well rounded people they interviewed. So keep in mind how that Itt degree is going to help you be more well rounded for a company.

Hope this helps some, and by the way I am typing this on the iPad and to lazy to review my grammar and spelling. Just read it like I spoke it. Lol.

I am in the same boat as you. I took their CEET (Computers and Electronics Engineering Technology) program, luckily at the time I could not get the financing to peruse a bachelor’s degree only an associate’s, but I am on the hook for over 50K for an associate’s degree!!!

How crazy is that? I could have gone to a state school for less than that and got a bachelor’s degree…..Hind site being 20-20 I would avoid this place like the plague.

I am kind of feeling the same way. I'm paying a *** ton of money and i'm passing all the hard classes but all the *** classes like communication, group theory, and strategies class, it's like they take them more seriously.

None of the labs work and they just give us packets and packets of work and say here is your work and we barely ever open a book that we are paying for. But yet i'm 20,000$ in debt. Something is wrong with these schools I agree I didn't start seeing it til they brought in this teacher (will not call him a professor) he tried to teach us Linux through YouTube. He never answered and questions that we had.

I dropped out I took it over again but yet I have to pay for the classes that I sat it. BULL.... then I had IP networking. I don't blame the instructor, she had surgery she told the Dean where the assignments were and he had her come in after her surgery she was not in any shape to teach and then the next class he had not instructor until 5 mins prior to class.

We had no instructor there for a good amount of time every other class. I stopped going. I fell behind because i'm a hands on and visual learner and if you just hand me paper after paper and say do this. I'm not going to learn squat.

This school is a JOKE... all they want is peoples money yet i'm so far in that its too late to back out.

IT DON"T TRANSFER.... and I have 1 quarter left.

The director is usually a recruiter who was promoted. All he/she cares about is money.

The school will do whatever it takes to ensure a student does not drop. That would be lost revenue.

I work at ITT. Corporate is micromanaging ALL levels of our school to the point where all of us (full time) types from the director down are looking very hard to get out of there.

Currently corporate, meaning Mr. midget Modany is requiring all school to make sure we have a higher student to teacher ratio. That saves him money (for over 135 schools) so Napoleon Modany can save more / still receive his ungodly bonus, last year it was over 6 or 8 million dollars. The managers here must take on more tasks and cannot spend any money.

His shortness is so paranoid about the government digging into ITT business we cannot do anything or hand out anything unless corporate checks it first. It takes a lot of time to do this, so the students suffer no matter what we need approved. ITT should stand for it takes time. Modany cares nothing about students, instructors, chairs, deans, etc.

It is all about making a profit. If by chance through our hard work and thriftiness we happen to do well with our Personal Performance review by hitting all of our “numbers”, maybe the students may come out ahead. For our performance criteria we are given goals that we have absolutely no control over. That way corporate gives us *** raises because we cannot meet or numbers.

ITT Chairs are forced to call back students that either should not be call back for academic reasons, or students that simply cannot afford the almost $50K for an associates degree. This forced mess is called a reentry and is a revenue stream that corporate loves. It is more cost effective to bring in struggling students than it is to dig up new ones. I hear that the chairs spend so much time doing this task that it takes precedence over most anything else, and they are over worked the way it is.

Again, working for Modany’s yacht payment, not the students needs. The instructors here are very dedicated and really care about the students and what they learn. We all try very hard to make sure we do a great job despite the lack of care from corporate. Corporate spends more time trying to get dignitaries into coming to visit campuses (like Senators and Representatives from state and federal government) so we play well to the public and we grease the right palm.

I would think the future golden parachute CEO could tithe his bonus and make available scholarships for the students, or at least give something back. Geez, there is so much more wrong with this place. Good thing at a local level we all care and do our jobs well. I am very proud of the effort all of us put forth and know first hand that many do go on to great jobs.

For the students it is what they make it, just like any other college or university. God bless them all.

If you every go to an ITT to check tem out make sure you ask about the TRUE student to instructor ratio. It is more like 40:1 or more early on.
