Remington College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (78)
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 college is not a good school at all well the littlerock campus isn't that great the littlerock campus gives Remington a bad rep no good teachers and the school itself take all your money and try to put you out within your last 3 months and then act like they feel sorry for you and what they tell you when you start isn't how everything go my year at Remington college was hell it started off good then all the good instructors started to quite now there is no good instructors and the school is a bunch of bull within 1 year of attending Remington over 2000 dollars of loan money has to be taken out and you don't get any thing bak if the school is 19000 why is the student loan almost the same price and still no refund back if I was asked to recommend the school I wouldn't unless its a campus besides littlerock if you have kids or anything going on in your life do not attend this school they make it 6x's worser your stress level will rise immediately I've only been here a year before I came I never smoked cigarettes they put so much stress on me at the school til I smoke 1 and a 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day NOT GOOD
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.
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.
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.
After three months of graduation, I still have not received my honor cords ( due to walk with at graduation) ms till have not gotten my certificate and still have not been scheduled for state certification testing as promised upon registration. I have not gotten any assistance in finding a job or even getting an interview. Not sure why they make all the promises and have not followed through with anything expect taking my money. Go to a real college. Please
I didnt learn anything from this experience other than to never trust a recruiter..never got a job. They said they would help me find a job in my area but kept trying to send me job opportunities miles away. I would ask questions and the teachers didnt know the answers. They did very little to try to answer them. BIG waist of my time but most importantly my money. Very costly mistake..VERY costly. They said if you missed during the day you could come at night but they werent even on the same chapter. One teacher was really good, Mr Newburn, but the other 3 were horrible. Sure wish i could remember their names but they either read the book word for word as if we couldnt do that on our own, taught us nothing but abbreviations, or goofed off the whole time. I RECOMMEND YOU RUN FAR AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL LOL 4REAL!!!
