The Remington College-Houston Campus is a career focused institution that offers diploma and degree programs, which not only inculcates students with the confidence and skills they need to take on and sustain a new profession, but also helps the faculty and staff outweigh their potential.
With 20 campuses in the United States, Remington is the name common to all and its rich tradition dates back to Lafayette’s Spencer Business College in 1940 and Tampa Technical Institute in 1948.
Being a non-profit organization, the college may seem smaller than a traditional university or technical institute, but if smaller class sizes (approx 25) and undivided attention are some of the educational perks you’re looking for, it is a profound choice.
Accredited by either ACCSC or ACICS, the Remington alliance has been part of the higher education committee since 1985 and is dedicated to preparing you for the job market in a short span of time, with diploma courses completed in a minimum of 8 months and degree programs as few as 18 months.
The training programs offered at the Houston campus include criminal justice, cosmetology, health care, nursing and culinary arts and are dominated by real world experienced instructors. The training provided is parallel to the demand of today’s employers, with day and night schedules to ensure you digest and excel in your chosen curriculum.
Some of the majors offered at the Houston campus are business administration and management, computer systems analysis/analyst, criminal justice, safety studies, medical insurance coding specialist/coder, medical clinical assistant and pharmacy technician/assistant.
For those eager to complete their associates or bachelor’s degree, but just can’t find the time to do so, Remington offer an array of online degree programs. These programs are designed to start a new career or enhance your skills in your current one.

Additional School Information
Remington colleges are densely involved in a number of community outreach programs to include blood drives, complimentary haircuts for back to school kids and makeovers for high school proms and donating school supplies to the less fortunate schools.
The “3 Lives” blood drive is one of their most astounding achievements and the reason for the name is approximately 3 lives are saved for every pint donated. Blood drives are held all through the year partnered with the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America and America’s Blood Centers.
The first drive starts in mid April, second to commemorate World Blood Donor Day in mid June and the third for the Sickle Cell Awareness Month in late September. The bone marrow drive is yet another award winning achievement and is facilitated by 15 Remington colleges nationwide. Upgraded in 2010, the campaign is easy and painless and is dedicated to saving lives and increasing awareness.
The complimentary prom makeover is overlooked by the cosmetology students, who believe that not everyone can afford a trip to the salon and prom night is definitely a memory to cherish. Driven by 12 Remington campuses, 2010 seen a total of 845 makeovers, while 2011 at 761.
