Remington College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (85)
The enrollment department made a huge show of how great their program was, instructors that love their jobs, all the great money I was going to make out of the gate, etc. I never should have listened, I'm actually a little embarrassed how much I believed their crap. $16k for the program, first of all, and I'm not even making that annually right now. Most of these entry level jobs pay less than retail and NO ONE recognizes my education w/Remington. I actually had an employer LAUGH IN MY FACE when I mentioned I completed the program w/full honors. They were probably right to, as I found out quickly that the curriculum was HIGHLY outdated and I know less than half of the things I need to work in my field. Things on my certification exams were never even touched on in class, and I had A's in every class so I know I didn't just miss something. Some instructors were great but I actually had one that spent the entirety of a month long course complaining about her ex. We spent a full 25 minutes on the coursework. Pathetic. Don't bother trying to get in touch with their "amazing" career services they go on and on about. All but one of my emails has gone unanswered and it's impossible to get them by phone. They don't help me w/my resume or interview tips now that I've graduated. They seem mostly just to be there for show so that new students think they're getting something "extra" that other schools don't offer. If all that wasn't bad enough, I requested disability accommodations multiple times. There was no confusion on whether or not I actually had a disability; I was pretty obviously physically disabled for the entire program and had multiple doctors notes to prove it. And yet they denied my requests, said everything would be taken care of. Well, long story short, it wasn't.
The president at Lafayette campus is horrible. She forgets that Remington already has a bad name and some of us or really just their because the offer the program we need. She forgets that its the student and enrollment that's keeps her employed. She forgets that its a school that they depend on students to promote the school. Word of advice make sure you never have to go through her for anything. Cause she talks to people as if they or her employees and not students. News flash that is not the only school in the area.
The school is awesome classes or very smile for those interested in small class environments. However I only have two issues. One is with the person over financial aid she has an horrible personality and not helpful at all. My second issue is with the school director. Some people when they get reach a certain position they forget that the have a job because of two main reasons. The first one is because of students like and the 2nd one is because of students like me and what experience with share with others about the school. The talks go people as if it's a personal matter towards her for whatever the issue is. Word of advice the enrollment keeps you with your job. So lose the attitude.
The instructors for medical assisting was nice and helpful. The school is unstructured and unprofessional. The students do not follow the dress code, and the staff do not always remind the students about the dress code. The students do not always wear their student ID. The student ID is part of the dress code, and for security to verify that the students are in fact students. I would not recommend the school to anyone. From my own observation, there is discrimination by the staff toward students.
This school is lousy and the management are unprofessional and rude. This is a for profit school because that is all they care about. A waste of money and time. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I live in Houston, Tx. Please save your money.
Maybe some people see this school as horrible but personally i love Remington and the instructors!! You can not blame a school for your failure... It is all about your dedication to getting the job done!! I maintained a 4.0 my entire 13 months as well as perfect attendance and when i finished they landed me job.. I started here as a technician then promoted to Lead Technician and now Assistant Pharmacy Manager.. If i could do it all over again I would definitely do so!! Of course the student loans are rather high .. about $15,000 i owe back and i pay about $160 a month back!! This school was amazing!!!! I also make well above the average technician!!
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!
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
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.

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.
