 “I specifically asked ITT Tech before signing up whether their degree was the same as any other public 4-year university and was told YES. I found out while applying at NYPD, LAPD, Seattle PD and 23 other police departments that NONE of them accepted ITT Tech credits.”

“When I attempted to transfer my units from Brown Mackie to Pasadena City College in California, I found out that none of my units transferred because they didn’t have the right level of accreditation…. I have a debt with nothing to show for it and am struggling to stay afloat.”

– Marine Corporal Anselm Caddell

 

“I went into the military so I wouldn’t have college debt, but DeVry [signed me up for a $15,000 loan without my knowledge.]”

“There are some bad actors out there. They’ll say you don’t have to pay a dime for your degree but, once you register, they’ll suddenly make you sign up for a high interest student loan. They’ll say that if you transfer schools, you can transfer credits. But when you try to actually do that, you suddenly find out that you can’t. They’ll say they’ve got a job placement program when, in fact, they don’t. They’re trying to swindle and hoodwink you. They don’t care about you; they care about the cash.”

– President Barack Obama, April 27, 2012, signing Executive Order 13607
