No opportunities, everything is a lie.

It becomes so competitive that no student wants to give any information to help you.

You don't get an authentic college experience

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The school is extremely expensive, I am stressed just thinking of how much money I am going to have to pay back.
College Senior 2013-11-27T18:50:53Z
Everything is hush hush and they will try to avoid your questions and answer it with a different statement every time.

The resources in this school are so outdated, the nursing lab is explained to be just like the hospital but they lack so many updated equipment.
College Senior 2013-11-27T18:47:05Z
Nursing program is basically self-taught, only a few like 3 teachers out of 10 will help you and is basically more based on the money instead of the education. Do not this accelerated program especially if you have no previous experience, because even if you point out you don't they still treat you like you do leaving you lost and confused.

When I started at ITT I did not do the research that I should have done. I just listened to what the recruiter told me. I enrolled into their CDD Associates program. Going into ITT I already knew drafting techniques and AutoCAD. Throughout all of my classes, I received only basic knowledge of each program they taught. I kept asking “What do I have to do to learn something more than just basic AutoCAD, basic Inventor?” And I was given the same answer each time... “Not here” “Another college”.
So a year and a half later, I graduated knowing very little more than I knew before I started. And not because I tried to just skate by, but because the program is dumbed down so anyone can pass it. I graduated with a 3.87 GPA without ever being challenged.
A few months before graduation I started tried to work with the career department to get some of the help they bragged about when I enrolled. The only reason I actually got a job in my field of study was because I flooded the job market with as many resumes as I could put out there.
A few years after being out of ITT, I decided that it was time for me to take my career a step further. It was time for me to move from being a CAD operator to being an Engineer. This is when things got worse. I made an appointment with ODU to enroll into their Engineering program. When I told them that I would be transferring from ITT, the head of the engineering department looked at me funny and said “I've never had another transfer from there. Are you aware that you would have to start over because none of your credits with transfer to us.”. No when I enrolled at ITT I asked them about transfer credits and they told me that some credits won't but most will. So now I started to become worried that I was holding a $40,000 piece of scrap paper. So I contacted TCC, Norfolk State and CNU... They all told me that my credits will not transfer. So basically... If I want a bachelor's degree, you have to start over... If you want a master's degree you have to start over... If you plan on never going further than ITT, go ahead and waste your money there. But if you plan on advancing your education in the future, look elsewhere. After a little research you will find that you can get the same degree from TCC for half the cost. Yeah I was stupid for listening to the recruiter over the fine print, and yeah I was stupid for not doing some real research. Stupid or not, ITT is wrong for what they are doing! They are taking government funds to run people down a dead end road. And they are wasting solder's hard earned GI Bill money!

I am a Game Designer and I have found out that working on the East Coast mainly is not working out for me, this is why I have decided to obtain my Bachelor's degree somewhere else. I mean their are some internship opportunities in VA, but their are far more located on the West Coast. Lastly most of the classes I'm taking now HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH MY MAJOR, I have only taken like 6 classes related to my major and speaking to fellow classmates, they agreed that most of their classes are irrelevant as well.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
First of all, I could not receive financial aid, because of what my Mother makes. Second, that department send out random packets to filled out at random moments, I mean if its a school at least have it organized

First, everything was going well, I had planned to enroll in their Bachelor Game Design program; then they suddenly drop the program stating "not many people are interested in this program". This really challenged my hopes and dreams of becoming a successful game designer, but I eventually got through it and started to find other colleges and scholarships to look for. Overall most of the teachers that actually cared and made the classes enjoyable are gone, and all that is left are the penny pinchers that only care about the paycheck, causing a vast majority to fail.

In the business program here the classes are less than what I have expected. It seems like everyone can get that easy A no matter what work they have put into it. As long as the work is completed the professors pass the student. This can be very frustating because I like to know what I am doing wrong and I want to learn from it. I came here to get an education not just to pass a class.

Recently the Career services has done more work to ensure that students know that they have someone to go to for help with job searches and help with interviews. When I first strated attending here they were silent and you had to apprach them. Now they come to the classroom and let you know where to find them and give out their business information. They have helped me frequently and have directed me to applications that are in my field.

I do not like the online classes at all. We do not receive much individual attention in them and when we have a problem with the material we are left to our own devices of figuring it out on our own. I prefer hands on and online classes do not provide this.

I actually expected more out of the school I am attending. I thought it would be more hands on.

I wish it was more hands on and less virtual labs.

Small School With Several Different Ages – The students at my school rage from the ages of 18 to 55 or higher. We have many different ethnicities within the school body. I would have to say that most of them are African American and the next large group are white. Because the school is relatively small I know most of the students there or I at least recognize their faces.

Great Technical School – ITT is a technical school and as such many of the rooms are computer labs. There are also several computers in the student lounge and in the learning resource center. Internet access is available on most of these computers. All of the computer labs and the LRC have a printer in them. There is also wireless internet in the building but it disappears in the parking lot.

Beginning of the Road – While I enjoy my school and haven't had any major problems, it is just the beginning of the road for me. I'm currently attending ITT Tech in order to obtain a bit of criminal justice background and to look good on my application for George Mason University. One major downside to ITT is the fact that credits rarely transfer. However, it is a good school for those who want to graduate quickly while still working.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
