"Okay, I read all these reviews after I was already enrolled at the Garland campus and I thought to myself what did I get into but, I experienced the opposite. Too clear up a lot of these reviews so the amount of money that was not covered by loans, grants etc (which is not much for most unless you make a lot of money) you start making monthly payments on while in school. The minimum amount that is owed must be paid which was 38 a month for me but you can pay more. When you graduate the remainder that you owe the school can be paid in full, paid monthly, paid weekly or however you want. They hold your diploma til you pay and if you need it verified for an employer they give you they link of how to get to it. Another review I read was that no one helped after graduation and I can’t speak about other campuses but garland campus which Christi Koehler is over is not at all unfair at all. Immediately after I graduated she reached out and I was taking a week to relax after work so I didn’t respond for a week and I got a reply almost immediately. She then explained I needed to come do my exit folder and if you don’t show up that is your own fault. Then she sends jobs that have openings and you have to respond back with which ones you would be opened to working at. You do Not get a free job with your diploma without lifting a finger. If you don’t respond to her she isn’t going to email everyday trying to get you to or send out your resume everyday to every job posting even though you haven’t talked to her and you expect just to get calls from employers randomly. If you don’t show up to interviews or if your late again that is not Remingtons fault because you thought if you graduated you were guaranteed a job or you get you money back. Another review stated that the teachers all want you to fail and that is a load of crap. Some of the teachers I had were in other states and your taking the whole course online and the other half are here and you go to lab once a week. The out of state teachers may have different time zones so if you email at one time and they are ahead of us and asleep of course your not getting a reply that night. Every single teacher I had at Remington were awesome. They went above and beyond what they had to do to help you. Like mr. Craig he will do anything to try to prepare you for your exam and give you print outs honestly anything you need he will help. Dr. Molnar and her husband Dr. Ahmadi are both teachers and they both are amazing. Dr. Molnar has had to have spent an incredible amount of her time not at work researching the RMA exam and taking prep tests so she can make us study guides and going through quizlet flash cards to make sure all the info is correct and goes over it every week with us. She is constantly trying to figure out what else she can do to help us do better they both are. CONCLUSION: Garland campus has nothing but faculty that will help you with everything and anything if you want help. No you don’t get to cheat through school graduate and get handed a job. And no they are not all about money. They would like to be paid the amount owed to them but it’s not sprung on you and they do work with you. So honestly if you want to actually go to school and try then remington is a great choice of school but if you want to get the diploma without actually having to learn anything or try then no your probably not going to graduate or not going to get hired anywhere."

"This is the worst school ever. I felt like this was a waste of time and money. The main instructors quit and took their knowledge elsewhere. They hurried and put almost anyone with a little experience to teach us. I feel very rip off and was charged too much."

"Starting off it was great. They hyped us up talking about the things we would do. Sounded great but should have known it would take a turn for the worst. They ask when you want to schedule class then change your schedule without consulting you. We had a whole cafe that was supposed to be used to sale items we prepared and that never happened. The kitchen was never stocked with what we needed when it came time to cook in the kitchen. Different classes in the kitchen with different instructors and some didn't bother to even clean before leaving. Leaving a mess to clean up before even using the the kitchen. Hopefully it improves sometime soon. I felt like the program was just thrown together to bring in more money with no concern if anyone actually learned anything."

"I enrolled per the Advertisement of the NCT Tech program. I've always been interested in the medical field because my mother is a nurse. I saw a oppurtunity to get my feet wet as a NCT Tech then was hopeful that when i graduated i would get hired and get promoted from within eventually. This thought was processing through my mind as I was signing my life away. Just like any school your going to have instructors that arent the best but out of this whole program. I kinda got the notion that before they were instructors something must have happened to why they chose to be instructors now. So i pondered .....they were negligent(this could be from paperwork, to billing and coding, etc) and were terminated, they were involved in malpractice suite, terminated for being insubordinate, received education and only completed their intership and didnt have the experience that most employers require, found out they would financially gain as an instructor due to the overly priced loans that the students get approved for once signed on, in my field they call this a concession, or maybe they didnt work well with others and were ask to resigned, or maybe they actually want to teach and mentor which im sure there is a small percentage that do want to be utilized their resource for others to succeed. In my experience this wasnt the case. Yes, instructors would be late, they would not come to class and no substitute was provided, Remington says they accredited but it seems they are only accredited to fail its students. Instructors would have no structure, no plan or program, no dialog, working on a limb to just stay busy and get through the day with juvenile activities like you were in pre-k or middle school. This felt like a complete joke. I was very disapointed. I actually was working full time in business management and going to the night classes. I dont know if the morning classes were more academically advanced then the night. Now ill be paying these student loans until i am in my 60s and this is going to be a big burden. Yes, the medical field is a great field to get in and you will always have to have a mindset of a student. There is always something that would be inhanced or modified for research and hands on friendly to learn. I just advise you to do your research thouroughly and precisely. In my personal opinion Remington is not the way to go to be successful in the medical field. Im surprised that they are still in business but then again im not. The only department thats doing there job is the Marketing, billing, and finacial department. Thats why they are still operating in business by comitting fraud and broken promises. This is a two way ordeal. You show up to class and do your part and the instructors will give you the knowledge you will need. This will not be the case with this school amongst others like it. Dont underestimate yourself, you are better then these programs, theres other resources that will be more beneficial in the long run. It wont be as costly and create a burden of stress. I wish everyone who will read this the best and pray that this predator of a school doesnt prey on its next victim."

"Current student. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy. DO NOT ENROLL HERE!! Some of the teachers are great but they academic administration is garbage. There are a few administrators that are willing to help but most of them don't care. They are disorganized and dysfunctional. If you go to them with a concern as a student, they attempt to blow you off and try to pacify the situation without actually creating a solution. It has become evident to me as a student that it is mainly about the money for a lot of the staff. For the money they are charging students it's sad that we receive cheap equipment and scrubs. If interested in a career in the medical field look for somewhere else. Save yourself the headache. Looking for somewhere else to go that will take the credits I obtained here."

"Seems like everyone is unhappy. And bitter. I made a work for me. Yes one or more of my teachers suck but most of them did care and I did gain knowledge. I did get hired as a M/A right after graduation. Some things you can only learn by actually doing them. I love being a M/A and am excited about furthering my career. If you really do not love this type of work it will not work for you."

"Remington started out to be a good choice until I graduated and did not receive my diploma. I waited about six months for them to mail it to me. When I finally got in touch with someone from the online bachelor program they told me that I owed money to the school and that I would not be receiving my diploma. It was funny that the VA paid for my schooling but I owed Remington. They are crooks and I would not recommend them to my worst enemy."

"I attended the Little Rock, Arkansas campus majoring in their Medical Billing and Coding program. My experience was not a positive one.My classmates were rude to other students and certain teachers.One teacher was knowledgeable about MIC but boasted constantly of his income and told us he was" always right even when he was wrong". In the end I ended up with a worthless diploma in medical billing and coding. Because most places wanted candidates that had at least two years coding experience. Many of my ex classmates were sent to job interviews but hardly any were hired from my understanding. That job placement Remington promoted just was not true for many of us. It is 2019 and I still have a student debt. The original student loan debt was 13,000.If you miss payments your credit score will go down! I recommend going to a community college, apply for FASFA(federal financial aide for students), and forget these for profit schools because the time and energy could be used elsewhere better."

"The Physical Therapy Assisting program @ Remington college is a Sham. It does not adequately prepare you for your clinicals or the field, and you will spend the rest of your life paying off the 45,000 tuiton. The clinical coordinator of the program will place you in extremely long distance clinicals if she does not feel you are well suited for the profession, so the added stress of driving a hour each way will increase your likely hood to fail or drop out of the program. Extreme bias displayed towards certain students while other students are given full attention of the faculty to be successful. Not an even playing field here folks. If I could do it all over, I WOULD HAVE NEVER, NEVER SETTLED ON THIS EXTREME JOKE OF A COLLEGE. HORRID EXPERIENCE!!!! Live and Learn."

"I went to Remington a while back, and it was the. Ingest mistake!! Right when you start the process they make you think that its the best and once your done, youll graduate making all this money in a professional environment. Its all bs, and nobody would hire me and didnt even ask acknowledge Remongton. After I graduated I was just left to pay all this money for no reason at all. I got nothing out of it and didnt even learn to code. Today Im doing fine, I have my own business. Remington was a joke, waste of time and 20k. I hope they get sued big time and return my money. I ADVISE YOU NOT TO GO TO REMINGTON, Its all BS!!!"

"I attended the Memphis, TN campus and graduated in 2010 with honors. I left the school not only with a degree that is worthless but also 37K in debt. They would not give my diploma b/c of the remaining 5K that I owed until it's paid in full. Some great instructors there (high turn over rate) but for the most part the whole experience was total a LIE! I could have went to a local reputable university, enrolled in an accelerated degree program, and received a Bachelors Degree in the same amount of time( 2yrs) for less money had I done better research. PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND ANY REMINGTON COLLEGE CAMPUS! You will ruin your future! I am praying, researching and plan to work with a local legal company to investigate fraudulent activity. I know there are many there and I will not stop until there is justice for all of US they have deceived!"

"I attended Remington College at the Heathrow campus in Flordia a couple years ago and graduated in 2018. If I could do it all over again, I would pick Keiser or any other school. I would like to give a ZERO because the education at this campus is well below the $47,000 tuition and fees I paid. The college spends more money and time on marketing their programs than on the actual programs which are inadequate and horrifically out-dated materials. Initially, I was 'sold' on the quality of the program by the self-proclaimed guru of the Occupational Therapy world, the department (bald) head. I received straight A's in all my courses and upon graduation was looking forward to working in the OTA field. The biggest surprise came when I had to pass my national exams-- I failed 8 times!!! This program is a joke because it does not even prepare for you to take the exam! If it wasn't for my friend who graduated from Keiser to share her coursework with me, I never would have passed the ninth time! Also, it was VERY hard to find an employer that would take the Remington Degree seriously. They all said that any of the students they worked with as interns for OTA did not know how to do anything. When I finally got hired, I am making $16/hour because only the good employers will hire from the best schools like Keiser and Adventist."

"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."
