Another Lawsuit For ITT Technical Institute

Source: ITT Technical Institute Faces Another Lawsuit, Now From Massachusetts Attorney General

Attorney General Maura Healey contends in her lawsuit that ITT’s Norwood and Wilmington locations in Massachusetts engaged in “unfair and harassing” sales tactics and exaggerated claims about the success of graduates in its Computer Network Systems program. ITT admission representatives allegedly claimed 80 percent to 100 percent of graduates land a job in their field or in an industry related to it. Placement rates were actually 50 percent or less, according to Healy. “ITT did not disclose that its placement rates included graduates with jobs outside their field of study and graduates with internships or short-term, unsustainable jobs who never received permanent, sustainable employment – including any job that somehow involved the use of a computer,” said Healey when announcing the lawsuit.
