ITT Tech / SINGLE STRUGGLING MOM ROBBED

1 United States Review updated:

I am a single mom, struggling to take care of my daughter all by myself, thinking Itt tech was a brighter future but so easy to get in. I am being robbed by this school, and its really upsetting to know that this "business" is getting rich off of me and I can barely provide for me and my daughter. I want to sue. Any suggestions?

    Keep in mind singlema... ITT tech, Heald College, University of Phoenix, etc. are all dubbed "for-profit colleges" (Google "for-profit colleges" and checkout the results especially within wikipedia.org) what they do is entice you by saying that you can get into a good career with the proper training within 1 1/2 to 2 years. This is complete [censored]...they also have stupid and incompetent admission advisors (take note that they are not even real admission advisors or counselors) "claiming" that the school you would possibly be attending is a fully accredited college and that you can transfer or further you education within any other 4 year universtiy after that. Well, sorry whoever came up with that crap is selling you a big fat scam! Truth is that whatever so-called degree you receive (if you even get it) is in no way shape or form acknowledged or along with the "so called" college credits you receive are transferable to any university simply because the 4 year colleges indicate as well (as the government reports will tell you) that they are not real at all. The Bottom Line is this...the "so called" admission advisors are telling you (brainwashing) to believe that "don't you want to make a change in your life?..."do you want to stay at your dead end job the rest of your life?" these are all selling tactics to hook you into signing yourself into MORE debt that is totally un-repayable without a good paying job. The "so called" admission advisor tells you this simply because all they see with you is dollar signs...and a big hefty commission on their paychecks! Keep in mind that whatever field you are investing in is marked up way higher (tuition costs) than it would be at a regular community college. For example if you are trying to get into business administration at a "for-profit" college it would cost about an average of $25, ooo to $30, 000 for the total education, compared to a regular community college costing way less than that. Maybe $3, 000 to $5, 000 dollars. So, consider the difference there. I feel your pain simply because i almost fell for this scam and i did my homework only to find out all the details about these "for-profit" colleges. My advice would be to withdraw from the "for-profit" college that you are in and even though its a pain to deal with file a class action lawsuit or consult a lawyer about how to go about this. Then enroll yourself into a regular community college and take the necessary courses for your particular field. I know the concept of completing your education within 2 years sounds easy but again "no one cruises through life." You will have peace of mind when you attend a regular community college or University and even though it might be a slow process you WILL receive and earn the education that you deserve and you can further it as well if you wish within any 4 year university to do even better! I'm truly sorry you were scammed by ITT tech but I wish you all the very best in luck in your endeavors! If you have questions just comment back on this and i will check this complaint regularly. Remember, you're not alone with these "for-profit" colleges there are very innocent and hard working people out there that get taken like this everyday it's just necessary to think that if it's too good to be true?...it probably is! Hope to hear your thoughts! Good Luck!

    I am a former employee of ITT and I can verify the fact that they only want you there for the giant government loans and grants that go straight into their shareholder's and top exec's pockets. Itt's CEO, Kevin Modany, made a cool 7.63 million in 2009 and that wasn't counting stock options.

    You really need to contact the fraud department of the Department of Education here: http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/oig/hotline.html

    and the office of Senator Tom Harkin who is working to stop these rep-off schools by cutting down their access to TAXPAYER money in the form of LOANS and GRANTS for their excessive tuition costs. HERE: http://harkin.senate.gov/
    You need to cut your losses NOW and transfer to a real community college or State university, ITT's credits will not transfer to real schools so you are just wasting time and money there. My advice: GET OUT AS FAST AS POSSIBLE before you end up with loans in excess of $90, 000 for a useless BA degree and will only be able to find a job flipping burgers.
