Remington College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (84)
This school is very very poor! I just finished my training at this school a few months ago & still NO JOB! Due to - the interviews I have gone on, they do not accept Remington School applicants! The teachers I had, do not really teach us anything much at all. They say that the teachers are available for tutoring, but why bother getting any tutoring when they don't even give us lecture during class!!!! I was best off studying the book myself. The turnover rate of teachers are ridiculous! There was no teacher for two programs (not mine), but two programs had no teachers to teach!!! The students sat in our class until they finally hired someone. And, I'd like to add as well, this school is very Filthy! Very Dirty!!!! Please think twice before attending this school. I don't want to see anyone else waste time and so much money!
I received my AAS and BAS from Remington in 2000 & 2003. I have yet to secure a job in my field. I've been told by most companies that they don't accept Remington students because of there accredidations or lack there of. Remington rarely hire there own students and they say you must have a degree from an accredited to colleg (go figure). I was lied to back in 1999 and was told my credits would transfer to a 4 year collge so but of they didn't so I decided to go back to get BAS from them in hopes I could still land a job.
Needless to say, another slap in my face so I had to attend University of Phoenix to get master's in order for any company to look at my resume. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I was offered a job at ITT tech (only because of my master's)and i had to turn the job down because I found out there accredidation isn't any better than Remington and i couldn't stomach putting somebody else in the same situation I was in. WARNING!!!!
I am currently a student at the Nashville campus in the dental assisting program and I love this school. The teachers are very professional. The only unprofessional people I have seen are the students who think they run the place and rules don't matter. The staff are very experienced and have lots of knowledge and stories to share. Within my second week of attending I was already in the lab learning things like impressions and x rays.
Once graduated the school provides three of the four expanded functions classes and are very well connected to dentists around the area. When signing up, the school has you watch a video that specifically tells you that this a career college and credits do not transfer. They do NOT lie to you. Everything is explained to you when you sign up and it is your fault if you do not pay attention and listen.
Don't go to this school you would be better off schooling yourself. I went in 05-07 in the Criminal Justice Program Memphis Campus. Upon my graduation they told me I could not because of loans that had to be paid off from their school.
When I asked why was I not informed until 2 years later they had no answer. When I talked to the Dean she said It had to be paid but also informed me it was their mistake but I still couldnt get my AAS degree. So i basically went to school for nothing for 2 whole years..
This is a school that will leave you feeling completely empty. It will make you wonder how they are allowed to charge so much for you to get so little. I find it sad that I went through this entire program wanting to learn as much as possible but yet I still do not feel ready for the job market.
The instructors are good, well some of them anyways. It is true that they do have a high turn over rate. The students prior to my class pretty much ruined the job market and any credibility we had as serious billers or coders. Basically, no matter if you are a good student or not, if you attend this school, employers don't want you. Period.
I went to this school looking for a bit of a step up in the employment area. I should have done my homework, for real. I graduated AND got state certified, I have yet to get a relevent job lead from them. Student career placement is a joke, I graduted as a Medical assistant, but they send me jobs leads for STNA, HHA and other jobs I had no concideration for. None of my fellow students have jobs in what we studied for. THIS SCHOOL IS A RIP OFF! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!
If I had known I could have just bought the books to study for the pharmacy technician certification on my own I would have not wasted over 13 grand at this ghetto school. It is not worth the money at all. Even after I graduated, they were still claiming I was a student there to get my pell money from the state of tennessee, then when I tried to enroll in a real school, I had to wait for the next academic year to start, because all of my available funds for that year were used up.
The Memphis Campus is a joke. I wish I would not have wasted my time and money on something I could have done on my own!!
I attend Remington Colleges Fort Worth campus and i finds that it is a great experience my only complaint will be some of the teachers study habits the are a little unorganized other than that its a good school in my view..But i have One question does Remington send out refund checks like other colleges ???someone please tell me
Remington has some good and bad spots. Sometimes as a person you have to know what you want. I sometimes knew what classes meant more to me than others. I knew in my mind what I could get away with. And as a person starts to get older they can also recognize that in other people. Some Instructors are very versed, others may be looking for something that is totally irrelevant. Although I may not get back to school at those costs there's some good people there. I developed Schizophrenia at age 22. I was completely exhausted when I graduated Remington College. I can tell you, your going to get a benefit from it as long as you sit through it.
I went to Remington for Medical Assistant. All they seem to care about is your money. Poor communications, they pass the buck. They lie to get you in there and even worse I still have not found a job!!!
