community college vs ITT Tech

The previous poster is correct. ITT Tech is going to be significantly more expensive, because community college is supported by the state.

As far as appearance of degree to an employer, I would say that community college would be looked at AT LEAST as highly if not MORE HIGHLY than ITT Tech.

However, depending on your personality & situation... ITT Tech may work for you.

1. Often community college schedules aren't as convenient. Private schools know they have to compete with the low prices, so they'll often try to make their scheduling appealing.

2. Some programs have wait lists at community colleges, so people who don't want to wait to get in go to the private schools.

3. Since they're getting a LOT of money from you, the private schools will typically offer much better personal support with keeping you motivated and moving toward your goal. Whereas, with community college, you're going to need to motivate & plan & move yourself forward. (They have counselors who can help you, but you need to be committed to using their help.)

If it were me, hands down, it's community college. But a lot of young people I know definitely need the extra push a private school gives them.

Not all ITT locations are accredited which in some ways makes your studies worthless. If a school isn't accredited you will have no luck transferring classes to another school ( unless it is also unaccredited )

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Don't waste your time or money on ITT Tech. Don't believe what you hear on TV. Go to a community college or other state funded college.
