Ict(Interactive College Of Technology) / Scam and Rip-off!!!

STOP here if you desided to choose ICT or Interactive College of Technology!They are located not only in Atlanta but some other states.
This college or Building(this is how my family call it) is A BIG JOKE!!!
First of all if you graduate from ICT your transcripst are not recognized by other schools.When you are enrolling be very carefull with the amount for the education that you are told, for some reason at the very end of a course all smiles disapeared and the amount for your course increases without any explanation.Students do not have any choise but to pay to get out from there, this is a reall rip-off.
As for education I have never seen something like this, almost everything you have to learn by yourself, if I would have been told that it will be like this I would rather take on-line courses which is a whole lot cheaper.
As for students loans is also rip-off.Nobody cares about education at this building, employees are on comission overthere and trying to get as much money from students as they can.
I would never recommend this BUILDING ICT to my family and friends, therefore I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU to enroll ICT!

    I agree with everything said, I just got the same problem yesterday, they asked for more money, because my account was not in balance they said, and few weeks ago everything was OK. Nobody could explane why and for what, so forget about this stupid "building" called ICT!!!

    ICT is made for people that have no other choice and everybody knows that, so the business department is working against the students, they don't care for anything but money and if they cannot take all they want, they will take at least half of it so you are happy they didn't take the other half. The education... there is no education, most of the teachers there work part time, this is their second job and they do not care about you, they care about some extra money and going home earlier. Everybody is smiling and pretending they will die for your needs but NO, that's another lie. Don't believe me- ask people that have graduated from ICT and you will see I am telling you the truth.
    Nobody, I mean nobody gives a ... over there!!!

    Yes, they took advantage of me too, I believed every person when I got there, but they all layers, it was a very bad experience, I wish I could search before I enrolled, but I am happy I am out of that corrupted ICT!!!
    ICT is not that model of education that I imagine, it is all about money and business but not education.
    By the way, open web-site BBB.org, it is Better Business Bureau, they also have complaints on this ICT, but you cannot read them.But if you have any problems write them and they will try to help!

    A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!! BE VERY AWARE OF THIS SCHOOL!!! This must be an issue with all ICT schools. I am currently attending the KY campus. I was lied to from the beginning. I've been there for a little over 6 months and the "school" has been thru 4 Directors... and numerous teachers. The only person that is even organized is the Financial Aid person, of course for your money...CAUSE THAT'S ALL THEY WANT!!!
    There is no structure in the cirriculum and the "teachers" if you have one for the class... All they do is read word for word out of a book. None of them have a clue how to teach.
    I could have saved alot of time and money if I'd have bought an online course for $2000.
    Now I'm expected to go to work full time, got to class full time 4hrs a night and do an externship IF THEY FIND AN EXTERNSHIP JOB.

    This place is a joke. They are trying to charge me for the entire program even though I only took a couple of classes. Believe me when I say that this is a total ripoff. I took a couple of Microsoft Office classes... most of the time I either taught myself, or worked with another student. After they returned the money to the Federal Govt. (Pell Grant), they charged me the entire balance. No school that is legit does this. What a bunch of bull.

    I was one of the most successful students there. Thank God I did not take too many loans. However, studying-wise, I agree - it's a BIG joke. There are some good people that I had a pleasure to meet but the "higher power" is simply pathetic.

    I enrolled a few years back and adminstration made that school seem like the best thing since slice bread I was in the computer program the instructor was never there and when he was they rushed you through courses I have no real knowledge of what I was studying and I feel that ICT is a BIG LET DOWN I wouldn't recommend this to ANYONE. I wish I could get this off my credit as a student loan.

    I'm going to start online protest against ICT and I may get some result if anyone has any ideas please reply to dfreeman97@gmail.com

    I completely disagree. I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience but as they say, "you receive what you give." If you want to learn and make a better life for yourself and your family, ICT gives you an opportunity to change your life for the better. If you are willing, ICT will provide you with skills that will prepare you for a job. They have a high job placement rate plus I love the externship programs. So many students are hired by the company they are matched with during the externship program. Like any college, you must exercise your abilities and put forth an effort to learn. Once you learn the skills, you will be able to get a better job and thus, a better life thanks to ICT!
    ICT helped me and I've seen it help so many other people. If you try, you will succeed with the help of ICT!!! Thank you ICT!!!

    I graduated from the ICT HVAC program in April 2016. I got a job within 3 weeks of graduation and am now working for the company that I did my externship with. I loved the program and my instructors. Also had very good support from the enrollment folks and financial aid. I had to get student loans because I couldn't pay out of pocket. So far everything they said has been true. I have a career with tremendous earning potential. All I did was go to class and study, while working of course. ICT helped me change my life! Thanks ICT...former student Mary Prevallet...btw, at least 90% of my class that stayed with the program are employed now just like me!
