Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2015
"Don't wast your time and money Please!!!!!. I was a 4.0 student at Remington College and this Diploma has not helped me get a job. I thought learning a skill would help me to get a job making more money so i could provide for myself after a divorce.This was so far from the truth. All I did was make my life harder and stress full . I've only been on one job interview that career services set up. It was for a part-time position and they said they could get a temp to do the job. The commercials make you feel like school is the way to achieve your goals. But that's not true. I have two daughters who have been to other schools and haven't found jobs either. They want experience not a diploma.One woman i know got certified in her field at Virginia college and still has not found a job. So Please do not be fooled by the hype save your money go to a real school and take something like computers or criminal Justice at least some of those have found jobs.Medical is about skills . You can't show your skills if no one will hire you. I' m working a part-time job and I have billing experience but no coding except in school.There was not a coder on my ex-tern the coder was working for them out of New Orleans. Even though I did excellent on my ex-tern i didn't have a chance. They needed a Medical Assistant. I am struggling paying a mortgage on 29 hours a week and can not get a job in the Medical field. I have so many applications out I am welling to take anything that will pay my bills. The teacher also had her favorites. They tell you you can't code just because you have a A that doesn't mean your a good coder . Really!!! seams to me something is wrong when a school has A and B students who can't code. My reason for going to school was to get a good paying job and learn a skill to improve my life . Not to get in debt for nothing."

"Whatever you do, do NOT attend Remington college. It was a complete waste of time, effort, and money! I did not find a job in the field that studied until a year after I graduated and even then I hated the job. In class we mostly just watched movies and wasted time. We hardly ever opened our books at all. Now I have a huge student loan to pay back, and it was all for nothing. DO NOT attend this school please!"

"Worst 10k i've ever spent and am still paying off. The commercials and the hype that surrounds it makes you think that you could go to school and automatically find a job in the field no problemo! you couldnt be more wrong. i went on countless interviews and unless you know someone in the business everybody wants experience. As a single mom looking for the ticket to help me raise my kids comfortably and set a good example (like the commercials). As if being a single parent these days isnt hard enough NOW i dont only have to worry about a roof over our heads and food on the table...i also have to worry about paying back a school loan i gained absolutely nothing from! Please please please do your research. Broke and not a bit smarter....Fort worth, tx"

"I have been having all the same issues of non-transferrable credits, as well as non accred. and not being able to be hired. I even attemted to join the armed forces, they would accept either. Call this number: 703 247 4212. File formal complaint here in writing with supporting documentation, they are the ones whom accredited Remington College, and if they do not help in the refunding/cancellation of your student loans, you need to join me in filing with the Attorney Generals Office. These people are a farce of an educational institute and they will continue to defraud the American people of their hard earned money until they are brought to justice. We must unite in order to get the "school" shut down, after which you can contact the loan service provider and have the loans dismissed."

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2007
"Remington withheld Billing & Coding instruction for the LAST week -LAST semester in their program and then offered only the Coding THEY felt the students MAY encounter. (There was a crash course in this part and no time left to cover any more.) In addition Remington made misleading & fraudulent claims and promises. This college is obviously out for the money and obviously target desperately vulnerable people. My education there did not in Billing & Coding but, instead, an education in getting SUCKERED! I was a straight A student who seriously attended all classes with honors and never found a single job offer. Today I remember none of what little I was taught in B & C, unable to pay the loan (which is in default and triple what the original cost of the 'course'. I am ruined, Thank You Remington."

Michelle - 3/9/2015
Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2009
"The recruiter was so nice and enthusiastic. It gave me a positive feeling so I decided to attend remington in Nashville. It was a 9 month program. At 6 months into it, one of the instructors decided to share with us that not only is it not necessary to go to college to be a dental assistant, the school is not accredited! Meaning we couldn't transfer the "fake" credits. Some students didn't return after that, I wish I wouldn't have but I kept going. Earning a 4.0 during the entire program and graduating, you could imagine my disappointment and embarrassment when every dentist office I applied to pitifully told me that they like to train their employees and that going to school was a waist of time, especially remington! I have a great job now but it has nothing to do with dental assisting. These schools are just about making money! It's best to go to a community college."

Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2012
"The campus I attended is no longer open. They were not helpful in accommodating life changing events and changed the program making certifications no longer attainable. The teachers, all very nice, however didn't know the material. I don't even know the information needed to obtain a job in the computer industry."

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2012
"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."
