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.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2011

I complete course in MA in 2011. From the time I completed I never had employment in this field. In my opinion this school is a waste of money and time. Do not attend this school. Do not attend this school. Do not attend this school. Do not attend this school you will be wasting time and money.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

THIS SCHOOL IS A RIP OFF! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY! Jobs will literally deny you employment if they see Remington College on your resume. The instructors are not organized. They also have instructors teaching that do not even know the material they are teaching about. The lady in financial aid really hates her job and is angry and rude to all the students. You will learn nothing at this school.

Book and uniforms are alway late. My certification for my RDA was never sent in. Previous students get there 6 months after there graduation. Even if you fail in classes students seem to pass. Looks like thwy are wanting the money then actual trying to help students that should not be doing some of these programs.This is for the north houston location
