Lets just say at the beginning everyone is helpful. But once your in you're pretty much screwed! I went to school here at the end the last month you go on externship to a location. But before you can go your account you pay the school every month.Has to be a balance of zero. They told me mine was a balance of zero. Finish my externship but I got sick found out my brain was swollen and i was having seizures. Because I was having memory loss and bad headaches. So when I took care of that got myself on meds I had already missed graduation so i was bummed out. I was ready to grad out get my diploma. Then they tell me i owed them 4,000 dollars. Im sorry but I don't just have that kind money laying around. But if you do well lucky you. Anyways that is aside of what I owe the company who let me borrow money to go to school. which is 15k. If you're paying cash it will work for you. Most of the teachers are actually cool. The Financial Aid is only one lady who is always in a bad mood. Never is really helpful when you ask for help she just blows you off. I still don't have a job in what i studied for. All places ask for at leaf 2 years of experience. Career people actually try to help. Like I said this school will only work for you if you pay full on cash. if not I would'nt even give it a try.

Don't wast your time and money Please!!!!!. I was a 4.0 student at Remington College and this Diploma has not helped me get a job. I thought learning a skill would help me to get a job making more money so i could provide for myself after a divorce.This was so far from the truth. All I did was make my life harder and stress full . I've only been on one job interview that career services set up. It was for a part-time position and they said they could get a temp to do the job. The commercials make you feel like school is the way to achieve your goals. But that's not true. I have two daughters who have been to other schools and haven't found jobs either. They want experience not a diploma.One woman i know got certified in her field at Virginia college and still has not found a job. So Please do not be fooled by the hype save your money go to a real school and take something like computers or criminal Justice at least some of those have found jobs.Medical is about skills . You can't show your skills if no one will hire you. I' m working a part-time job and I have billing experience but no coding except in school.There was not a coder on my ex-tern the coder was working for them out of New Orleans. Even though I did excellent on my ex-tern i didn't have a chance. They needed a Medical Assistant. I am struggling paying a mortgage on 29 hours a week and can not get a job in the Medical field. I have so many applications out I am welling to take anything that will pay my bills. The teacher also had her favorites. They tell you you can't code just because you have a A that doesn't mean your a good coder . Really!!! seams to me something is wrong when a school has A and B students who can't code. My reason for going to school was to get a good paying job and learn a skill to improve my life . Not to get in debt for nothing.

This school should be shut down..there new moodle system shows the answers after u submit your assignment so people at that school are not learning anything. myself and several others always made good grades n helped one particular person who never did.yet somehow this person a teacher fave makes a very hi score on the ccma and the three who helped her didnt pass.They do not help u find a job show favoritism to certain students n people are not learning when moodle gives u the answers.proof.the honor roll board with pics on it is jam filled.yes they changed it to where they average your first attempt and your second attempt to get your grade but still it gives you the answers after the first attempt...stay far away from remington.

I had the same experience you all had except i went to the University of New Orleans for computer science. The employers want experience not a diploma or a piece of paper. I got $40,000 in debt for nothing no job nothing. at UNO they didn't "teach" me any of the technologies i needed to know in the real world of work. Most colleges are a big scam. You need to work out in the real world to get experience to really know how to do the things that employers need you to do . A school 99 time of out 100 is not going to give you that. I wish I could sue the place i went to also. they ruined my life

Whatever you do, do NOT attend Remington college. It was a complete waste of time, effort, and money! I did not find a job in the field that studied until a year after I graduated and even then I hated the job. In class we mostly just watched movies and wasted time. We hardly ever opened our books at all. Now I have a huge student loan to pay back, and it was all for nothing. DO NOT attend this school please!

Worst 10k i've ever spent and am still paying off. The commercials and the hype that surrounds it makes you think that you could go to school and automatically find a job in the field no problemo! you couldnt be more wrong. i went on countless interviews and unless you know someone in the business everybody wants experience. As a single mom looking for the ticket to help me raise my kids comfortably and set a good example (like the commercials). As if being a single parent these days isnt hard enough NOW i dont only have to worry about a roof over our heads and food on the table...i also have to worry about paying back a school loan i gained absolutely nothing from! Please please please do your research. Broke and not a bit smarter....Fort worth, tx

I have been having all the same issues of non-transferrable credits, as well as non accred. and not being able to be hired. I even attemted to join the armed forces, they would accept either. Call this number: 703 247 4212. File formal complaint here in writing with supporting documentation, they are the ones whom accredited Remington College, and if they do not help in the refunding/cancellation of your student loans, you need to join me in filing with the Attorney Generals Office. These people are a farce of an educational institute and they will continue to defraud the American people of their hard earned money until they are brought to justice. We must unite in order to get the "school" shut down, after which you can contact the loan service provider and have the loans dismissed.

Remington withheld Billing & Coding instruction for the LAST week -LAST semester in their program and then offered only the Coding THEY felt the students MAY encounter. (There was a crash course in this part and no time left to cover any more.) In addition Remington made misleading & fraudulent claims and promises. This college is obviously out for the money and obviously target desperately vulnerable people. My education there did not in Billing & Coding but, instead, an education in getting SUCKERED! I was a straight A student who seriously attended all classes with honors and never found a single job offer. Today I remember none of what little I was taught in B & C, unable to pay the loan (which is in default and triple what the original cost of the 'course'. I am ruined, Thank You Remington.

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

The recruiter was so nice and enthusiastic. It gave me a positive feeling so I decided to attend remington in Nashville. It was a 9 month program. At 6 months into it, one of the instructors decided to share with us that not only is it not necessary to go to college to be a dental assistant, the school is not accredited! Meaning we couldn't transfer the "fake" credits. Some students didn't return after that, I wish I wouldn't have but I kept going. Earning a 4.0 during the entire program and graduating, you could imagine my disappointment and embarrassment when every dentist office I applied to pitifully told me that they like to train their employees and that going to school was a waist of time, especially remington! I have a great job now but it has nothing to do with dental assisting. These schools are just about making money! It's best to go to a community college.

The campus I attended is no longer open. They were not helpful in accommodating life changing events and changed the program making certifications no longer attainable. The teachers, all very nice, however didn't know the material. I don't even know the information needed to obtain a job in the computer industry.

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

Being the first in my family to attend college and persue my education, I was excited. I wanted to attend a well know school and a school near my home. I saw commercials about Remington, so I thought that was a good choice. Fast Forward. During my 8-9 months at Remington I felt used for money and cheated out of learning what I needed to know to obtain a job. Remington offered G.E.D classes, but they were poorly taught. Half of the time we stood outside a classroom to a locked door not knowing what class we were in. Several teachers were quiting or being fired. I was so close to graduration, but I was not comfortable or mentally fullfilled with anything I did learn. Remington enrolled more younger students that were so immature, always fighting and not totally focused why they were there. I was tempted to leave the school because of the unorganization and care for the students. I did graduate only, because another student saw how dissapointed I was and told me to finish and take what ever I learned. So, I graduated with "NO" G.E.D and very unfullfilled.
