Please do NOT sign up with ITT tech which is one of those private overly priced For-profit schools. One should also be aware that ITT tech is ONLY nationally accredited as opposed to the minimum "regionally accredited". Even those private $$ for-profit schools that are regionally accredited such as university of phoenix may NOT have course credits that transfer to other schools.
These consumer sites have negative posts by former students about those private overpriced for-profit schools including ITT tech and art institute, and please heed the students' warnings:

Please instead consider the local community college and/or state university as long as the program is accredited within the industry.
You may be aware, but the art field is supposed to be quite competitive and even those with a college (four-year) degree from an accredited school of art and design may have difficulty finding a job. This site is supposed to have accredited programs in art and design: http://nasad.arts-accredit.org/ and can click "member lists" on the left-hand side of the page and then scroll down to the drop-down bar and click one's state of residence.

To make a CAREER in animation one demands to be revered each as an artist and as a technician. This may also be very rough. Obviously, when you don't seem to be concerned peripherally already (and revered) University is often the fine factor of access but when at ALL viable pick one with as many traditional drawing categories as viable AND one that teaches hardware. Traditional animation is one-of-a-kind from laptop animation but in addition handy in conceptualizing matters, that you have got to do when you desire to gain knowledge of animation.
