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.
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.
