Trunover rate for Deans is incredible!!!

I have been at the Norwood Ohio ITT location for 3 and 1/2 years and they have hired and fired FIVE deans during that time. Even worse, I am in my last quarter and the assistant dean was busted down to instructor and is teaching my final course for my education. I'm really feeling the pride of this impeccable institute of "knowledge" LOL. (B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T!!!!!!!) I don't believe there is any graceful way to recover from getting busted down from assistant dean to a lowly; and psychotic instructor. Do not waste your time here. Do not waste your money here. Most importantly, go to a school that will actually teach you the skills you will need in your chosen field.

ITT-Tech I HATE EVERY ONE OF YOU CORPORATE PIGS!

I attended ITT-Tech for the last 2 years in pursuit of my A.S. in drafting using the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill, a couple of Grants.....And like $30,000 in Federal student loans that the school conveniently applied for on my behalf. Until this quarter.... WITH 81 credit hours, a 3.4 gpa, and one quarter left to finish my degree, THEY DROPPED ME FROM THE PROGRAM... because of some obscure state law and/or their dirty corporate policies, Also I can NOT re-enroll at ANY ITT-TECH...EVER! My last financial aid statement showed a zero balance owed to the school! Now they won't release my transcripts until I have paid my balance??? Of $750.... (A great way to stop their victims from enrolling with the competition). I'M 32 years old and A COMBAT VETERAN! Plus I'm out of G.I. BILL. BASICALLY, I'll spend my whole life below the poverty line...

Sounds like business as usual from the usual gang of greedy, idiotic, corporate ITT thugs! They are the lowest of the low and are capable of ANYTHING. Especially if they think you are spilling the beans about all their criminal business practices.

@Xcorgi

Thank you for your service. However, I highly doubt the school dropped you for purposes of "greed".

And if you truly had Post 911 GI educational benefits, you would not have applied for federal student loans; any federal student grants would have been gift aid. You, not the school, applied for federal financial aid.

There is full disclosure at every step of the process in admissions and enrollment. Be mad all you want, but if you are truly the warrior referenced as a military combat veteran, then tell the truth.

ITT Technical Institute* what a joke*

I went to ITT Tech from 2008- ****, I got both my Associates and Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice. They make you believe that students that graduate from ITT they will have a better chance of getting hired over others. They have this quick way of registering and quick financial aid process. When I graduauted in 2012 I was told that they could get me a job making minimum wage. I was like this is a joke right, they said that is all they had.I said after 4 years of wasted time and no job in my field and all you can offer is minimum wage jobs?? After I graduate I didnt even know I had private loans until I was receiving bills in the mail and collectors calling saying a was defaulted. I am currently over 100,000 in debt and nothing to show for it. Something needs to be done.

If you didnt know about the loans you need to contact the loan proviers and tell them that, you must have said yes to them somewhere because student loans have what they call a pre interview where you have to go through this entire thing aknowledging that you will now be this much in debt and you have to pay etc. if you did not go through that I am fairly sure a lawyer can help you sue ITT Tech.

Waste of time and a joke

I cant believe i went through the whole associates degree course. I learned nothing at all and one of the teachers even said that the chair told them to tell him how many students they were gonna fail for him. Also the chair was teaching the capstone class because "not enough teachers were qualified yet the ones from the previous quarter were still teaching. San Diego ITT is a joke. Also most of the teachers don't actually teach, they "try" to do the lab during lecture and then give up then send students to the lab. Once you are done with the lab you go home. For an at least 3/4 hour class we were there for the most 2 hours. I left capstone due to my group being a failure because they never did any work and i did everything, the chair even knew it and singled me out to ensure i would fail. I asked him about it and immediately he blocked my email so I couldn't email him. Had a 3.97 GPA. Now i'm stuck with a huge student loan for nothing.

Can't believe this school is still in business

I enrolled in the ITT Tech Criminology and Forensic Technoloy program several years ago. I, as many of those posting these reviews seem to have been, was excited to go back to school and actually learn about something that interested me. One of the first classes I attended was nothing more than a resume writing class, which was fine... Until the teacher told me that I should drop out and go to another school, as this one was not for me. WTF?! I ended up leaving the school for a short period of time because I did not approve of a teacher saying this to a student! Whatever his opinion may have been (or his intentions good or bad) I felt this was inappropriate behavior and that he wasn't qualified to give such advice. I returned to the school a short time later, deciding that this one teacher wasn't going to allow me to get down on myself. However, when I did return, I noticed that many of the teachers would just sit in class and tell you stories about their 'on the job' experience. True, many of them worked in the fields that they taught, but I never felt that I was learning anything to put to use once I got into the field myself. We had received a 'crime scene' kit at the beginning of one of the semesters, only to use it on the last day of class for about 15 minutes... not exactly the 'hands-on' kind of classes that their commercials promise, now is it?! On top of that (and this was the last straw for me...) I had been going for a while at this point and although I had missed a few days here and there (if you miss three classes in a row, they drop you from their system) for work, but as I arrived to class one morning the teacher told me that I was no longer on his class list and that I had to go speak with the dean. I did so, and upon speaking with him he alleged that I had missed three classes in a row. I know for a fact that I had not, as I kept track on my calendar specifically so that I DIDN'T make such a mistake. I ended up having that teacher come down to the dean's office with me, upon doing so he said word-for-word "I'm not going to lose any sleep if you're not in my class."!!! How dare a teacher, nay, a mentor to those aspiring to join the ranks of hardworking people in the field of criminology, say that!! I understand that teachers have their own opinions and have good and bad days like the rest of us... But how dare you say that to a students face?! I left the school that day and have not been back since. (And for those of you who may say that I should have tried harder or that it was somehow my fault and I was not doing the work, etc, etc... I had the honor of being asked by one of my teachers (who also happened to be the dean of my particular program) if he could use several of my papers for class lectures and discussions.) I just can't believe that these types of schools still exist and that people are still willing to pay for these sham classes! My condolences to those of you who have had similar experiences and my congratulations to those of you who actually made it out of this school alive and with a degree!

Just keep in mind that the horrible instructors you have encountered at ITT are there because no college worth a *** would hire these mentally disturbed, psychotic retards. In fact, they don't have a job in their chosen field because they probably could not get along with the other SANE employees so multiple companies have had to fire them multiple times. I pray for the day this nationwide penitentiary goes bankrupt!!!

The only thing that makes a student at ITT an *** is being conned into enrolling into this penitentiary. Don't even start taking the high road on this one.

ANYONE and EVERYONE does graduate because this place is a joke and they teach very little of the skills you will need in the real world. The people complaining here are doing so about the faculty man-hating bulldykes, the psychotic retard instructors who lose it when they have to answer more than one question per class and the ridiculous practice of the school not having any books until the third week into your quarter. If you think this is a wonderful experience, then I suppose you can tell us all how good your instructor's *** tasted to you.

You are a real a-s-s kisser and ball licker. Go s-u-c-k on a t-u-r-d!!!

A Mixed Bag Experience

My overall experience with this business was mixed. I would recommend that a person, who wishes to achieve a degree, to seek it out from an accredited university or community college. If one wishes to acquire, on the job skills, as in trade work. Then this business might be worth your attention. Even then I would only recommend that one considers this business for training if they are seeking a Technology focused job. I completed the course work for a bachelors program for Information Security Systems at the Troy, MI campus in 2011. During that time have observed much of ITT’s operation and have criticisms and compliments. When I first enrolled I was not seeking a degree but rather to acquire technical skills that would improve my knowledge of IT/IS. That I did do. But many other students there had the expectation that a “degree” earned there would guarantee a rewarding career. I believe many others were misled by the sales pitch provided to them by the recruiting staff, that this would be the case. Likewise, the enrollment process featured, what was termed as an “Entrance Exam” which was in actuality a simple series of problem solving questions. The questions were terribly easy and I believe meant to boost the confidence of applicants so that they would be more likely to agree to enrolment terms. This gives way to my next criticism. The poor student body which is made up of people who do not take work seriously, in that the serious students are far outnumbered by the not serious ones. The same people who leave ITT with substandard skills, leave bad impressions on prospective employers, and make it difficult for the serious ones to find work. The cost of these courses, though it has beneficial information, is ruinously expensive. I have earned one of their bachelor’s degrees and am in debt over 60K. Thankfully institution from which I borrowed has a professional staff and is offering assistance with my loan payments. The instructors ran the gambit from highly knowledgeable and professional (at least in the IT course) to absolutely feckless. Thankfully the IT instructors were highly knowledgeable professionals. The lab work offered was the most beneficial. The equipment at my school, though in short supply, was in good working order and helped me to develop skills that I use in my current line of work. The career services were likewise helpful. These ones helped me to construct my resume and find work within my field. The only true advantage I would say that this business has over a community college is the faced paced, and focused, curriculum, which surpassed my experience at Community College, which had a confusing curriculum map and left enrollment entirely up to the students. In closing, this business did help me to acquire trade skills and did better my knowledge of Computer Networked systems and is the same knowledge which I used to acquire my industry certifications. They assisted me with resume creation and job placement in my field. However, consider that this is a business whose main concern is getting bodies in their class seats. There are almost no enrollment requirements or restrictions. So expect a mob of people claiming to be students. The expense for these courses are comparatively high. If you are interested with learning a trade then stick to the Associates program. Only then focus on the courses for which ITT Tech is best known. That is Computer Networking, Media design, Drafting and electronics. The other courses are expansions meant to draw in more customers. As for me the whole experience was somewhat beneficial, but I have made the decision, that once my debt is in control, to seek out a degree back at the community college.

I was fortunate enough to get three degrees decades ago. I sometimes think the powers that be have determined that the USA is now to be scammed out of any money or value left, and then abandoned to the dust-bin of history.

After all, we can't compete wage wise in the global market. Our role in this world is apparently just to spend and consume until we run out of money, and be scammed when possible to speed up the process.

This school is a joke. They seem to have a problem hiring anyone that speaks English as a first language.

On top of that all of the admin workers and some of the teachers acted as if just because I have dark skin I must be violent and refused to be alone in a conference room with me.

They also seem to think that just because someone is dark they must not be smart enough to understand what they are saying. Lots of racism there

Sent me to collections over 428.00 leaving their scam school

I was sent to a collection agency with necer receiving prior notice which reported to all three credit bureaus after paying agreed payments of a mere 428.00 for withdrawing early from this scam money Hungary cheating school. They lied and took the payments and then reported me after I paid It all in full. Now I have to contact the dept of education to investigate all the fraudulent monies they took from me with my government loans and never gave me a dime of disbursements and charged double and triple to recoup all loans from me. They do it to all from what I see. I want this removed from my credit now and I am pursuing every avenue possible including the Lenders and education dept to investigate where the monies went and how much as well as charging me this amount when I withdrew which is also exorbitant and recouped for their own school high costs. This report stays on for 7 years and is ruining my credit. Do not ever go to this school...you will pay dearly! I am not done yet when the government investigates the monies taken and ruining my credit when it was paid as agreed. Never ever attend, contact, or think of attending this money making fraudulent terrible school for any reason. I withdrew and they were pissed just like so many do withdraw or too late and end up with 80 to 100 thousand dollar loans to pay back with not even a normal legal degree to find a job. PR

Dont work or Attend College at ITT Technical Institute

First the College is way over priced. It cost around $45,000 for a two year degree. Over $80,00 for a BA Degree if they offer the program. They get students into school and tell them that it takes 1 year 9 months to get your degree, then not offer certain classes and the students have to stay longer. second too work at ITT Tech is a big lie, they get the new leads for students who dont even want to attend college and make the reps call them 3 to 5 times a day. It irratates everyone involved. The Director and the Director of recruting lie about the leads and fail to inform all reps about new procedures. Then later blame the reps for not doing their job, If a rep does his/her job above and beyond expectations, they still get punished. DONT WORK OR ATTEND COLLEGE THEIR, HENDERSON. NV CAMPUS....

When my son was a junior in high school, about 3 years ago now they took a field trip to the one in Orlando. He was in the Academy of Technology and Robotics there, and the lerning was all hands on, and what they couldn't do that way was all on computer.

Several students from other schools were there asking questions that the "professor" either could not answer or answered incorrectly, my son and his classmates finally got tired of it and started answering the question for him.

When they broke down into groups in different rooms, the other students did not go to the instructor in that room, but to one of them. Yay AITR!!!!

My son had a better education already than people that were supposed to be teaching others.
