"This school is horrible they are doing bad things to their students ms latecia is very rude and she used her amount of years she been there and saying like nobody will believe us. She pretends like she care then down u saying she will make u owe all this money but withdrawing u. She always put it like she better than us and like she is so untouchable but I know someone somewhere in corporate cares and hopefully they see her for who she is I will never go back here I have warned so many people about this school please run far. Nobody care but Ms Pam she is the sweetest lady ever I only learned from her smh instructors wouldn’t show up to teach nobody tells us anything all this for over 20,000 of debt. Latecia needs to be fired anytime u use the system for personal use is terrible she is very evil please do not go there I am looking for an attorney or someone to help me and y’all who experience the same r even worse"

"This school is the worst most of the staff are very negative towards the students. They will stand in your face and tell u they will and can pull the plug on you and u will have to pay all the money back for nothing. The lady that’s over medical assistant is very rude she always say she been there for years and can make u get dropped"

"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."

Disgusted student - 6/22/2017
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017
"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!"

"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!"

Dont be lazy - 6/9/2016
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!"

"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."

"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."

Was not Worth it ! - 8/13/2015
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014
"Lets just say at the beginning everyone is helpful. But once your in you're pretty much screwed! I went to school here at the end the last month you go on externship to a location. But before you can go your account you pay the school every month.Has to be a balance of zero. They told me mine was a balance of zero. Finish my externship but I got sick found out my brain was swollen and i was having seizures. Because I was having memory loss and bad headaches. So when I took care of that got myself on meds I had already missed graduation so i was bummed out. I was ready to grad out get my diploma. Then they tell me i owed them 4,000 dollars. Im sorry but I don't just have that kind money laying around. But if you do well lucky you. Anyways that is aside of what I owe the company who let me borrow money to go to school. which is 15k. If you're paying cash it will work for you. Most of the teachers are actually cool. The Financial Aid is only one lady who is always in a bad mood. Never is really helpful when you ask for help she just blows you off. I still don't have a job in what i studied for. All places ask for at leaf 2 years of experience. Career people actually try to help. Like I said this school will only work for you if you pay full on cash. if not I would'nt even give it a try."

"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."
