I went to Remington to try and get my certification for pharmacy tech. The teachers were not much help. My classes were suppose to be small for better one on one teachings but they weren't. They promised me a free certification test after i finished the program which i never got. But they sure were eager to get their money one way or another.

I personally did not enjoy my experience at this school in Nashville TN. There is no way to keep up with your own grades. They don't have any online systems to check grades or homework from home. The School tuition is way to high not to have online systems for student I personal wouldn't recommend this school to no one. Teachers were nice but work was done out of work books all the time. I felt like I wasn't learning anything at times. Many student I started class with dropped out the very first week.

This was indeed the worst school anyone could ever attend their higher than most school. The staff treat you like your still attending grade school. they scream at you as if you was there child. We are using a program called moodle and one of my teachers do not know how to even open the program. She told the class she didn't know how so we were all going to pass her class. I didn't like that because I actually wanted to learn the material. I do not recommend this school to anybody this is your warning. They do not transfer credit. most jobs donot hire anyone with a Remington diploma.

Improper billing, no experience, credits are useless. Worst experience of my life. I now owe 41,000 and i have nothing to show for it. I am struggling to survive. I can't go back to school, as they exhausted my pell grant. I am basically screwed. And the signature on my degree is just a squiggly line. Do not go to remington college. I graduated with a 3.92 gpa, and gained no skills or knowledge.

I honestly don't know where to begin... When I read reviews especially those that are positive, I tend to think that someone from the school is writing them. I guess that's my cynical nature... I will provide my email address to those who wish to see if I am indeed a former student and NOT an employee of the school.... ... I'll start here... I have notice that there are mostly negative reviews for Remington... Prior to me enrolling, I had heard nothing but negative things about Remington by more from their Allied Health side of things...and mainly at their campuses... I will not discount those who had a negative experience, because that's what it was for them. But here is my experience at Remington, the good, the bad, and the conclusion...

The good part: for me the good part is a very good story... I had gained a Bachelors degree from a school that ended up closing, and I could no longer get an official transcript from them and every major university i approached with that issue wanted me to start over from scratch as a freshmen. Remington understood my situation, and gave me credit for 64 credit hours and let me enroll in their Bachelors degree completion program. The Bachelors of Science in Organizational Management. Most of the classes were challenging and some where not. I ended up with a D in my Analytical Tools course, and I got a C in my Negotiation course... but out side of that, I had B's and A's for the remainder of my courses. 90% of the instructors were really good, I had one who was extremely hard. I never had an issue where instructors did not respond to me either the same day and latest within 24hours. They were prompt. (oh this degree was done online). I think I fell in love with Kathleen Bodine she was awesome and very creative in working out any issues that I had during the 16 month long program. I have very little bad to say regarding the staff....

Now, the bad.... Remington is not Regionally Accredited, which is a big deal when talking about moving on to get your Masters degree ( I will talk about this part later...there is some good news). However for me, I didn't care about the Regional Accreditation, I needed a Bachelors degree where I could get a transcript to prove that I have an education. Remington does have a national Accreditation which is recognized by the US Department of Education. This is the biggest draw back to Remington and they don't have an internship placement program for their Bachelor level programs... That would be something, I think would really put some serious teeth into their Bachelor program.......

Now, for the person or people who think that Remington's credits are accepted by anyone, that one is a lie.... I was accepted into the Masters program at Northeastern University -College of Professional Studies. Northeastern University is Ranked #54 in the country of all Colleges and Universities, that means its in the top 3% of all Universities in the United States... I completed my Masters there, and I am now enrolled in their Doctoral program. Northeastern University, (College of Professional Studies) was more than accepting of my degree from Remington... So, don't think that there are not major universities out here who will not accept them because Northeastern University is as major as it gets... Now it depends what you want out of your degree... If you think a degree is going to guarantee a job, that's not what degrees do. Bachelors degrees allow you to compete for the job. Despite having a Bachelors or Masters, you still have to have the, skill-set, proper experience, and be the right fit for the job in order to get it...The bachelors degree simply states your have the formal professional training and now you have to sell yourself in order to get the practical experience.... I am someone who current do hiring for my department. I have 6 supervisors and 22 direct support staff under me...... So this is the whole truth from a former student of Remington College. If you have more questions, feel free to email me... my name is TJ. tauvaris@gmail.com

This school is a ripoff, they charged me 30,000$ for the degree in which I still don't have a job or career in. They won't give me my transcripts or diploma because they say my loan isn't paid in full...6 years later I'm still paying on it and it's affecting my credit, I would not recommend anyone to this school..I went for 18 months and no other school will accept my credits, so basically I went to school for nothing!! Please be aware of this school, they are out to get u!!

Former nursing student here. The school is going under. They have sold their nursing program and are in the process of laying off over 70 people in the next few months. Their accreditation is worthless, so if you try to go elsewhere all that money and time you spent will amount to nothing. There are so many better programs out there that are cheaper, regionally accredited (the best), and a better experience overall. Please don't waste your time or money.

I went to Remington in lafayette la. It was the very unprofessional! Teacher complained on a daily basis about how she did not want to be there. I also was told I failed a course before I even took a final. Witch I knew there was no way possible. The teacher told me I could check her grades? Turned out she was wrong... I feel bad for people that attended this school. If teachers are incapable of doing there jobs they should not be there. Teacher also could not control the class....

They ruin lives here. Take heed to all the warnings on this page. Remington charges more than an actual university! Stay away from schools like this, Itt, everest, they are all waste of time. If you want to get an education, go to a community college. If you aren't a college person go to a technical school, like Brewster or Erwin Tech. These options that i just gave you will land you jobs, not these fly by night schools that have accreditation that dosent hold water.

I graduated the MA program in 2006 with a zero balance for my tuition. Now 7 years later I go to the campus to get my original transcript and they said I owe them money. Now I have obtained my original transcript before in 2008 with no issues. Why didnt I hqve issues, because I dont owe them money. Now today, out of the blue I owe tgem $300 and cant get my transcript until i pay it. They gave me a number to call the campus in Littlre Rock because tge person there handles the financial issues. A guy called me this morning and was very rude. He says he talked to me in 2006 (really?) and i agreed to pay the money. He also said if i didnt speak to him nicely he wouldnt send me anything showing i owe the money. I asked him again when did he speak to me about this and he says I have answered that already. He continued to call me lady and telling me to shut up because he was talking. So whrn I decided to speak he told me he was ending the call and hung up. This man is very unprodfesional and I am going to see how to file a complaint against them. I do not owe them money and its horrible how they can all of a sudden say you do and if you don't have receipts from 7 years ago then you in trouble.
