It depends what you want,

A true college like university of florida would be a lot better.

If you want cheap and quick go to ITT.

If you want really cheap just buy some books.

The key issue for you should be whether the school you will attend for a Computer Science (CS) major is accredited by ABET. google for ABET and search for schools that have an accredited CS program. Sorry "ITT" and "Devry" don''t count there. rofl~!

ITT could be good or bad depending on just what you want to program. It''s completely possible to be self taught and have no problem programming various commercial utilities (such as EDI related applications, general web development, etc), so I can''t imagine an AS from ITT wouild hurt. If your goal is to get a job that may require more than an associates degree however, I''d say check with the larger universities in your area to find out if they''ll accept the credits earned at ITT towards a higer degree. If not then it''s more of a waste of time and money than not.

If you want alternatives to ITT, look at community colleges in your area. Most of them work with the bigger colleges, and their credits are more likely to be accepted towards a better degree. The best part is that they''re relatively inexpensive in most cases (the classes required for my associates degree, not counting the cost of books, will come out to be ~$5800).

Um, it''s really often is the other way around..ITT should be an alternative to a community college. Do you think any accredited University/College is going to accept credits from a non-accredited institution?
