kenji p. - 5/9/2016
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014
"Attended Remington College Honolulu Campus. Only got a job as Security Captain for a high rise condominium. No advancement. Career service did NOT help much. I was suppose to have an appointment with the Career Service guy and found out he quit without even letting me know. No internship for CJ. Waste of money. Take your money somewhere else. Start with a community college and move on to a university. Classes are easy. NO challenge. Stuff they teach are pretty much what you learn in your freshmen/sophomore year in high school."

"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."

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016
"Book and uniforms are alway late. My certification for my RDA was never sent in. Previous students get there 6 months after there graduation. Even if you fail in classes students seem to pass. Looks like thwy are wanting the money then actual trying to help students that should not be doing some of these programs.This is for the north houston location"

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015
"The tuition is way overpriced! Teachers are never in the classroom when you need help.. Just don't waist your time and money. If you are trying to become a Dental Assistant you have to keep on mind is very hard to find a job, obviously they will tell you we will help you find one which is something they'll never do."

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2011
"It was not a good experience, I had previously been working in the field 7 years prior to attending. I pasted my test but it was not because of the school. 3 out of 25 pasted. Now some of my friends are stuck with a very high loan and no certificate and no job."

Edwin V - 10/13/2015
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"I just graduated with a Criminal Justice Bachelor's Degree at the Honolulu Campus. The Career Services didn't help me much when finding a career. I end up getting a job working security that pays me close to minimum wage. I can't even pay my loan with that kind of montly wage. I ended differing my loan which ended up with a interest rate of more than two thousand dollars. I tried to apply for a state position as a youth corrections officer unfortunately the state rejected my application claiming Remington College is not accredited. Not only I'm deep in debt I got a job that don't have advancement in opportunity."

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2006
"I went to Remington in north Houston for pharmacy technician. The classes were suppose to be small which weren't and sometimes we were left with no teacher. I was also told that I would get a free test which I didn't and once I payed over 100 for my test I couldn't pass it...why? Because more than half the stuff on there wasn't taught to me. Nothing but waste of my money and I was left in dept because I couldn't finish paying."

Parks - 9/11/2015
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2015
"The price for the rudimentary crash course in coding is outrageous. The fact is most places will not let you code with no real world experience. I work as front office staff at a medical practice making better money that I ever have, and for that I am thankful, but it's not worth the massive amount of debt I am now in. A diploma or even the CPC certification they talk about the entire program, is just not necessary to be a coder, though it looks pretty on your resume. The curriculum is not devoted solely to coding, a vast majority of class is spent on learning how to manipulate EMR systems and practice managing software. That will come in handy for your entry level position, but the coding portion is not extensive enough to actually be considered worthwhile coding experience. That being said I was top of the class and still failed the CPC exam by 6 points. After classes ended I had to stay on career services for a month before they sent me any job leads because they had "no contacts" in the area I live, I live in a suburb of the DFW metroplex, so don't give me that. It is not a horrible school, but if you are going to pay that much money for education pay it to an accredited college whose credits are transferable, because now I'm 15k in debt, with a piece of paper that means a lot of nothing. I am going to continue my education at an accredited University, because all Remington really prepares you for is an entry level position."

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."
