Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

DO NOT GO HERE!!!! BEWARE!! Extremely expensive tuition leaving every student in long-term student debt. There is a low grade quality education. Instructors give you ALL the answers to the tests and quizzes prior to taking them, and if not it's all open-book. You will graduate with a salary expectation of making a few dollars more than your local McDonald's employee. The instructor turn-over rate is exceedingly high as 1 leaves at least every month! Rules change daily with many gray areas! Finance department has no working business model and no standard operating procedures! They NEVER know when you will get paid or where your money is even located!!!! Worst institution EVER!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2007

Hello how are you all doing. I attended Remington College in Memphis,TN location and this school is a joke. I'm in 45,000 dollars in debt dealing with this college. No one will accept the credit and if they do it have to be a private college. I'm so disgusted with this college and I'm very disappointedisappointed. Dr. May at the time was the president at this school said I can go to any college I want to with this degree. I didn't pay all this money to become a security guard. And most security guard companies don't want to accept this degree

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2005

I had pleasant experiences with Remington College Honolulu Campus school, in the heart of downtown Honolulu and a nice 10-15 minute walk away from the Aloha tower. i did find it odd that all my grades were As because in high school it was definitely not a 4.0 GPA; might be my positive military life somehow. Like everything in life you have to research what you want to become. Speak to the companies HR rep and ask what certifications, degrees, qualifications or accreditations for degrees does the average employees have? Back in the days you did not need Pharm D, now it seems all the top paying places require Pharm D. Back in the days your engineering degree did not need to be ABET accredited. Now working for the US government your engineering degree needs to be ABET accredited. Education is constantly changing, constantly adding new accreditation requirements to simply be hired at your dream job. Reasons personally I think its a $$$$ game. These are also the reasons schools charge top dollars because getting accredited does not come cheap for these institutions of higher learning. So before going out and seeking a degree, seek what you want to become first and ask what certifications, degrees, qualifications or accreditations for degrees do I need to be a top candidate for this position and then seek the school that will provide those requirements. Sometimes you may never know when your school will go under, such is the case for ITT that filed for bankruptcy. So always thread carefully when planning to pursue a for-profit technical institute. Always ask prior to attending a school for higher learning, what degrees does your schools offer and are any of your degrees accredited? Please heed my advice as I have attended numerous colleges and gain valuable life changing experiences: Honolulu Community College, Remington College Honolulu Campus, Hopkinsville Community College, Excelsior College, I got accepted into Creighton University (Go Blue Jays!) however one class was too much $$$$$ for my Family and I. Please don't seek what school you want to attend first. Seek what you want to become first and find out what degrees and accreditation are required and then seek the school that meets all your requirements! I am SSG Marlon A. Dela Rosa, USA, Retired, and I approve this message

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2017

This degree program is a nightmare. Fellow classmates could barely write a complete thought, spell, and or express understanding of legal concepts which are skills vital to the legal field. The entrance exam is a joke. I am broken-hearted for those who completed this program, because in the real world- grammar and proper spelling is a must in this field. The weekly assignments where you must engage with other students is extremely difficult when your peers cannot spell or write proper sentences. There were several assignments where the information was incorrect or uploaded improperly- I also spent unnecessary time and effort on these assignments, only to discover that they were incorrect from the beginning. The professor just copied and pasted someone else's work and never bothered to go over the assignments to ensure they were in fact uploaded correctly. Exams have out-dated answers, and even after you prove the correct answer, you are not given any credit. Good lunch finding out the truth on what is expected of you- as you are pushed around from one Remington College employee to the next. They also drop the ball on very important issues and are quick to place blame on you the student.

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2012

Looking back at this choice to go to this school I SEVERELY REGRET IT!!!! No one at any of my jobs has gone to school for this job they all got on the job training which at the time I didn't even know wasn't necessary for doing this job! I wrote Remington corporate office a certified letter about how dumb our teacher was and how super unorganized she was with all of out certificates for us to take our board test and THEY DIDN'T CARE ! They already had their money so why would they! Do yourself a favor and go to a REAL COLLEGE!!!! This is just a for profit place and your credits aren't even transferable!

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2010

I feel like I learned more in my high school medical studies than I did at Remington. I EASILY maintained a 4.0 in my year at the school. After graduation and externship the lies and deception started showing heavily. I did the course with EKG/X-ray. Every place I went to in a 20 mile radius of my location said I was not qualified for positions at their office(I would need more school) Basically certificate was just a piece of paper. The career placement staff kept sending me job leads that were 1 hr drive away in no traffic. Any job leads i had were minimum wage which is hard to take because my current job was paying way more than that. Long story short this school is a joke!

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2011

I graduated in 2011 from Remington in Southeast Houston and I work for a big time hospital with great pay. I read some of the reviews and honestly all these people sound lazy. First of all, you have to put yourself out there and find yourself a job. They can not guarantee you a job that is what your supposed to make an effort in doing. Just like any college, your not going to graduate and find your dream job right away. I took a low pay job because I was a student with no experience and now 5 yrs later I became successful at what I do and kept thriving forward. That is how you become something of yourself with your degree. Now I am going back for nuclear medicine. So if your expecting to graduate, get a high paying job and expect them to get you a job then don't bother here. If your willing to make efforts and help yourself become successful then apply and best of luck to you. Once you graduate take what job offers you can in the position and get the experience you will need to become successful. Basically don't be lazy!

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2005

I attended the same school and same program at the Dallas (Garland) Campus. All they care about is money. Many of the people who went to school with had no business being there. The medical field is very professionally based and employers are not going to hire people with facial tattoos who are unable to read and write in English. I was the only one in my class to graduate on the Dean's List and pass the National Certification Exam. After graduation I learned one of my instructors was NOT an RN after months of her telling us she was one. No one at the school would talk about this. This school is NOT VETERAN FRIENDLY. I literally had to BEG the president of the school in order to have access to my VA benefits after being promised when I registered for MA classes. The career placement services is a joke. The ONLY REASON I was able to find a job is because of getting a business suit and literally walking door to door in a medical office building handing out heavy paper printed professionally done resumes. If you are seriously wanting to get into the medical field AVOID this school and go to a community college. There's a reason there is so many horrible reviews of Remington College.

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

The professors don't care about the students. They make you do a lot of assignments that don't teach very much, and they talk down to all of the assignments. If you have extenuating circumstances that conflict with homework or the ability to attend that are out of your control, they hold it against you. You end up pulling your hair out on some assignments trying to meet their expectations. I have to work six-seven days a week to cover my living-expenses, which leaves me at my witt's-end by the time that I get to school, and I'm always worried about meeting expectations. Ms. G. knows her material, but is a horrible person who doesn't give any breathing room

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

Attended Remington College Honolulu Campus. Only got a job as Security Captain for a high rise condominium. No advancement. Career service did NOT help much. I was suppose to have an appointment with the Career Service guy and found out he quit without even letting me know. No internship for CJ. Waste of money. Take your money somewhere else. Start with a community college and move on to a university. Classes are easy. NO challenge. Stuff they teach are pretty much what you learn in your freshmen/sophomore year in high school.
