Complaint / review text:
Don't allow those commericals fool you. I currently attend ITT in NC and wished I never would have started in the first place.
The teachers are the WORSE. The first year of schooling was teachers who didn't even know the materials. We, as students, had to read the book and learn the programs ourselves because that was what the teacher was doing. When we had problems, so did he.
We asked, asked and asked and finally, the dean replaced some teachers. The newer teachers are better, but the same results as the rest. Once you are enrolled into the program, it's like you become a #. You miss to many classes oh well.
They don't try to help you at ALL. Evening classes start @ 6pm. If you don't get off till 6pm (me), they don't try to inform you what was missed. I have stood up in front of the dean, her boss and even her boss and told them flat out that ITT is a JOKE!
If i wasn't TRAPPED with this no transfer credits BS then I would've left the first semester without looking back. When you go to finanical aid and inform them that you want to leave the school, they do everything they can to keep you. They told me the first time I wanted to leave; because I wasn't being taught the information, that the teacher was learning as we were learning and complaining like we were complaining about teaching the wrong class, they informed me that the credits will begin to transfer to another school 2 terms from now. At this time I listened and accepted the fact that I wanted to be at a school that had evening classes and was flexible.
During the third term I go back to my F-aid worker and let her know it's time for me to go ahead and start my transfer to another school. She informed me that the credits will not transfer over as they had wished and to continue with the school. I changed my major as the teachers were leaving and the program, even with current students was closing. Now that I have one more term left before my associates degree will be in my hands at a cost of $44k, Once I'm completed my goal is to educate.
I see more and more young black men and women joining ITT and then they stay a term or two then leave. I'm sure they are leaving with $2-5k in debt, but ITT is making BANK and not caring about the students. ITT is owned by a TV or cable company anyway right? Someone/something that has NO dealings with EDUCATION.
- total waste of time and money.
People who have graduate could fine jobs that paid $12-14 starting out. Don't get me wrong that is good money, just not good enough to pay back ITT student loans that start collecting interest after 6mos out of school.
