I am an aerospace engineer for a fortune 500 company now. I started with ITT tech.

When I finished, I still needed to pass a few acceptance interviews with various companies to get a job. You cannot rely on the school to find you a job.

ITT scheduled an interview with the employer at the time. That is all you can get from any school.

ITT gave me great hands-on training and education.

quarters are different than semesters...and I can understand why you think they are the same.... You complain about ITT and how horrible they are yet you are still there?...really?...LOL...you are either lying about it or something...and BTW using bad language just makes you look dumber. You should probably go to a community college...take a remedial English class and learn how to write.

You failed class at ITT? You need to get 95% score out of any class at ITT to be taken seriously.

Take a good look at yourself and work much harder. Good luck with that attitude.

I hate that this school requires 96 credits for you to graduate with a A.S. degree. It is wrong because the school doesn't specify this and now I can graduate due that I'm 2.5 credits short. So im I went through all this hard work just to come up short. I...

I graduated ITT in 2001. I never recovered from the debt.

Needless to say it is 2015 and I am currently homeless. I attempted to return to school to reclaim my life but not even community colleges would accept credits from ITT. 2 years of my life and all the money for tuition was for nothing. At least I didn't try to go for a "bachelors" and end up with even more debt.

Just a warning.

Don't fall for the lies and promises of an easy road through ANY for-profit institution. In the long run you will regret it. Maybe not immediately but eventually down the road you will be kicking yourself guaranteed.

Start off at a community college for a fraction of the cost. Yes it may take you longer and be more challenging but you will never reget it years after.

Thanks for the info. You don't know how much this helped my son....he was days before completing enrollment and as fate would have it a co-worker's son told me about the biggest mistake of his life.

He said ITT ruined his life....his credit....and he's under the age of 21. He can't get a job to pay back the ridiculous amounts of money he borrowed and his loans defaulted! Poor kid! And to think this could have been one of my children scammed by high pressured sales people....They should be shut down!

Any college or secondary education institution that advertises on TV should be investigated for fraud. Thiggins, Mobile, AL.

The ability to transfer credits is determined by the RECEIVING SCHOOL - not the school the credits come from.

The Department of Education and CHEA recognize some national accreditors, including ACICS, as well as the regional accrediting agencies. That recognition is the primary authority by which accrediting agencies review, scrutinize and endorse the integrity and quality of educational institutions.

Accepting credits earned at another institution is the prerogative of the receiving institution.

No college, school or accrediting agency can require another institution to accept in transfer credit earned somewhere else. Even when the sending institution is accredited by the same agency as the receiving school, there is no guarantee credits will transfer.

The decision on whether or not to accept your academic credit could be made by the chairperson of the department, a faculty transcript review committee, an individual faculty member, an admissions officer or other college official. Factors that affect the willingness to accept academic credit in transfer may be in the institution’s catalog, and include: •College or state policies. Most colleges and some states have policies concerning the number and type of credits they will accept in transfer from another institution.

•Residency requirements. Most colleges require a student to complete a specific number of credits at their institution in order to be awarded a degree by them. •Appropriateness of course content. The course should align with the college’s degree program.

Some courses may not be relevant to the degree that is sought, regardless of the rigor or content of the course. Also, the content of the course should compare favorably with the materials and topics covered in the college’s degree curriculum. Students seeking to transfer academic credit should be prepared to discuss how their completed coursework covers the topics required in the college curriculum. Evidence would include copies of work completed, or a copy of a syllabus or study guide for the course.

Official transcripts sent from the college of origin to the receiving college also may be required •Appropriate academic level. Acceptance of credit also depends on the transferring student’s academic standing and the level of course material studied. Remedial and developmental courses probably are not generally transferable. Satisfactory grades for the courses completed are also required in most cases.

•Accreditation and educational quality. In the U.S., the two entities that grant authority through recognition to national and regional accrediting agencies are the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Many traditional colleges and universities in the U.S.

are accredited by a regional accrediting agency. Many college or schools offering applied education programs are accredited by national accrediting agencies, including ACICS. All accrediting agencies recognized by the USDE are deemed to be reliable authorities on institutional quality and integrity. The USDE makes no distinction between national or regional accreditors regarding their reliability in ensuring institutional quality.

This is originally from (if I remember correctly) DETC.org: The fact that regionally accredited colleges refuse to accept credits from another school because it is not regionally accredited flies directly in the face of national policies advocated by American Council on Education (ACE), the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), et al. The real issue here has less to do with the academic quality of the sending institution, and more to do with anti-competitive business practices of the receiving institution.

Competition is heating up in higher education , and there are forces at work to control the inroads being made by “upstart” operators. Congress, the Department of Education , and the Department of Justice have been looking into this anti-competitive practice (MAFI)by higher education , and we suspect we will see significant activity in the coming months on this matter.

I know this is an old blog, but it is still available on the internet and someone else can find it like I did depending on the search you did.

I went to ITT in 1991 for a year (did not graduate). I am sure things have changed since then with the school.

It was overpriced then as well. I don't know if the degree they offered would have really made a difference, but that is not what this post is about.

I defaulted on my student loans with ITT, but the loan was through them. I settled up my loans several years later and in 2012 requested a copy of my transcripts. I was able to find a contact in the Records Coordinator office in Earth City, MO where I attended and after filling out a simple form with no fee, I received a copy of my transcripts.

It might depend on the location you attended ITT, but to me, the process was simple.

Not as easy as other institutions where you can order the transcript online, but at least they did not charge for it like Ashford University. They want $10 each copy.

I went to this school and so did others. Im no longer at this school.

its sad how they treat people. 1st it cost to much for a ADN. i felt like since i got in it didnt matter because once i became a nurse i would easliy make the money back to repay. well that did not work.

they will not allow teachers to show any students any grades. meaning in ur nrsing class you make an 60 which you will. because they dnt teach you you have to teach urself. they will not show you what you miss.

meaning you will prob miss it again bc you dont know what you did wrong or right, they failed at least 15 students 1st 2nd and 3rd quater classes because they were able to get more money. if you fail a class meaning you can only get A and B's in all classes it will put you behind a quater. 3months. they dept chair teaches at others school.

Alamance comm college. she doesnt know what she is doing. she just grad with her phd herself. my class had CNA Phlebotomist lpns were even failing test when they should know basic nursing.

this school makes me feel real bad. it was the biggest mistake in my life. we started out with 30student the 1st quater now has 5 students left. meaning some failed some and most quit.

the fact that you have to have class on the teachers schedule is crazy. YOU CAN NOT PICK YOUR CLASS TIMES> if a teacher teaches at GTCC at 5pm. and is only avaible at 7pm thats when your class will start. So alot of people in my quater were grown women with kids.

its hard to go on someone elses sched.even if it is a nursing program. IF UR THINKING ABOUT GOING HERE because you can get in just by taking an online test kinda like the teas and past. Dont do it. The people in these classes looked like they never attended school or if they did they werent able to get into another program someone else.

to me thats not good enough. if i would have known this i and several others would have stayed at the university and been on an waiting list.

all the money is loans. some people got FA.

Just yesterday, some of us graduated from this place. We had sunk a lot of money into going there, and most of us have shared with each other that we didn't want to lose the money already spent (or that we have to pay back) so we went ahead and finished.

Even before graduating, we've learned that the degrees are not going to help us get a job in the fields we had hoped for. It may make some potential employers actually feel sorry for us, or think we are *** for having gone in debt to make these people richer, and failed to give us the education for the money we had paid.

I'm sitting here pretty sick about it, and have talked with my co-graduates over this past week ... a lot of them wish they had just quit and figured out a way to go to TCC.
