Each individual ITT Technical Institute is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. Each one is also authorized or licensed by the state in which it's located. Students at ITT Technical Institute schools are also eligible for federal student financial aid programs.
ITT Technical Institute was originally founded under the name Education Services, Inc. in 1946. As of 2015, ITT Tech has over 135 separate locations spread out across 38 different states, encompassing roughly 70,000 students. ITT Tech offer AAS, BAS, and Master's degrees, although the Master's degree is only available online. The school warns its students that credits from ITT are unlikely to transfer to other schools.
