Student & Graduate Reviews (217)
I only worked for a year as pharmacy technician because I received better offers in manufacturing, that's what I used to do. I don't regret graduating from this school only because the school loans helped build my credit, as for a new career they will not help you find one. When I worked my first job as a pharmacy technician UEI found out and contacted me asking if I can tell my employer to take interns. I just started working there I wouldn't ask that, knowing they would deny that demand. UEI asked assertively, not politely, like if they wanted me to do their job. I'm writing today because they sent me a letter saying I owe them $500....six years later and want to settle for $250, sounds like a scam. They have caused nothing but financial burden to me.
I was lied to and told a lot of lies like we can help you get a job while in school. And I attended night classes for three days, being promised that I would be able to get day classes instead but would have to wait two weeks for that to happen. And than they required too much personal information up front. They promise so much exciting life changing careers and lie to you when you question them. And harass you when you tell them to leave me alone. They want you to come in for what they call your interview for the job you asked for and lie about that too. The teacher for the class is not knowing the subject matter either. Stay away and don't attend this school ever. When you want to drop the program they try to talk you into staying when your tired. And they don't care when you are a parent and have other things to do before getting to class. Also they promise you the great education ever and lied about that too. One teacher who claimed to you should know the computer program is no help on teaching you how to use it. I did the assignment and she said no redo it when I followed the directions from the book. When I dropped the school and let the teacher know she said ok good luck. And the so call advisors say no you can't just let the teacher know. They again can tell the truth when you have a spouse and want you to go against his or her support saying they will come around. I'm not one to do that and they promise you a backpack but don't tell you when your getting it, they have you go to class and without the information for the class. The students are helpful to a point but have there own groups of people to hang with on the off hours. Married persons and with kids again they don't care the busy life you lead already. Don't waste your money or time at this lame school. Run fast and believe the other reviews that were posted here. Don't find out for yourself either.
I graduated from High School, after 3 years i decided to go to college for a better education. Went to enroll to UEI College and i was happy because i thought that i was going to have a better job. Graduated for MBIC from UEI College and never been hire even though i have summit it to many applications. I do get job interviews but because i don't have a list a year of experience they don't want to hire me. I stop paying my loan and now they have me in collections. Now i have to get a lawyer for this problem and put Lawsuit against UEI college, because they promise me a job with a list getting pay $11 to $12 per hour. The owner where i did my extern told me this, How are you expecting to get pay that money if you just started? My answer, Well they told me that i a list be getting pay $11-$12 per hour. I could pay you the $9.00 per hour. Ok think California is really expensive i was paying $950 per month for a garage, insurance $70 per month, and gas it was $200 a month, and my college payment was $455 per month and being a single mom of 2 kids. I don't think that with $9.00 dollars and hour i was going to make it. Now i have to pay the lawyer in order to get out of my debt from collections for a loan forgiveness. They told me they were going to find me a job, never happen. They just wanted me to be going for practices at different places and not getting pay. I DON"T RECOMMEND UEI COLLEGE FOR ANYTHING. They do have really good instructors but NO JOB GUARANTEE.
I was enrolled into the medical and billing program and as usual they promised me a job and a education. I go to the encino campus, they use to be in van nuys but relocated. I regret ever signing up and enrolling. I was super depressed at the time and was having problems with my significant other , I thought I was going to end up alone with no financial support for me and my son. UEI came along and the councilor started sympathizing with me and I decided to go into the school so I can make money for me and my son. I am on my last week before I go to Externship. I don't even have a Externship and I have been looking for one by myself because my coordinator keeps placing me in far places like Los Angeles when she knows I have no transportation or any dollar to my name to pay for bus fare.She admittedly said if you don't go to any interview I set up for you, you can go find your own because I'm not. Letting you ruin my 100% of people placed into Externship. Not only that but my instructor is such a air head. When I first went into her class she promised so much and would brag about how much she would be making when she first entered the field. It was enticing and I studied super hard and she actually believed in us. She taught us more than entry level and about how to deal with corporate America. But ever since she enrolled to get her master's degree, she doesn't teach us anymore at all an instead yells at us every day. She starts saying you guys are more than entry level because of what you have learned but if u forget and don't study your worth minimum wage(which is true) but then she starts getting personal, she will bring you up and make you feel good then she'll say things like "what you guys do is baby work, I have to write essays and do this and that , I don't need any of you , I promise you I will get my master's degree and you all will be flabbergasted, I don't need any of you, in fact without me you'd be nothing, I don't care what's going on in your life I don't care about your excuses" then she makes us get up one by one to give her a excuse why some people didn't do hw or studied (even though you did study and did all your hw she would still make you point out flaws and make a excuse) all she does is yell at us everyday even if it's not about our class she will yell at us because some students from another class were smoking weed, and she. Doesn't keep anything about a student confidential. She will either talk about you in front of the entire class behind your back or when you are there about personal issues. And she really bugs you about your personal life and will call you and harrass you until you tell her something and she says she is there for you by then she says she doesn't care about our personal life? All she does is yell at us everyday now and makes us feel horrible about ourselves all because we don't have a master degree. She doesn't teach anymore just makes us feel bad everyday and I'm not the. Only student who feels that way. I regret enrolling and there is a lot of girls who are younger than me in my class and living with their parents who are only paying 13000 and less for tuition while I'm paying off 20,000 while trying to support my baby by myself .
I went to UEI ready and excited to start my career.My rep didn't know the rules of her job,she said I was able to go to the school even though I didn't officially have my high school diploma I was currently in a high school program. Before I sign papers and committed to going to the school I told her I was only three tests away from getting my high school diploma but I also had to pay a big tuition,so I don't officially have my high school diploma until I pay off the tuition.she said I can still go.On my second day of school the teacher gave us a basic information on blood pressure, pulse, respiratory and temperature.She then had the older students teach the new students how to do it.When I was lost I would ask the older students (who she had teaching us) what to do they would look at me like I was stupid or I was supposed to know the answer.I don't know if the newest student for pretending to know what to do but I felt like I was the only one lost.When I said I was going to go ask the teacher they told me that the teacher would be mad because I had a dermal piercing. My rep pulled me out of class and told me that I would have a week to finish my high school diploma or I would have to leave school.I wasn't able to finish it in a week but I did finish it .They asked me to get a paper from my current high school program saying I completed it.I did but it was not enough for UEI.I called her and started to talk to her about it ,asking her what should I do.I wanted to get back in school to start my career.she then tried to blame me for not getting my high school diploma stuff done in time,I told her she was the one who said that I could go there without my diploma in my hand.she didn't take any responsibility for her actions.eventually got off the phone with each other and she never called me back.The school was a big disappointment to me.Those of you deciding to go to UEI Stockton campus beware that you will be paying around $20,000 to get taught by students who haven't even began their medical assisting career.
I was a mentor at UEI College and I loved it. They gave me everything I wanted. I have found a place to work and to do my externship and I have a huge chance of getting hired. I can't say anything bad about them because I haven't had a bad experience.
I graduated and I was mentor in this school. I did not have any problem at all in fact I am very proud to be graduated there. I still have my job and Thanks to the teacher and the staff with out their help I would still sitting and trying to figure what I am going to do. thanks to the campus President of Encino and their staff . I would be nothing without them. Thanks UEI I am proud to be your Graduate . Kourosh Ghaheri
To all that say UEI college is a bad choice, that's because you didn't want to complete it, and now say they ripped you off, more like you let them do that since you dropped out. Im in my 5th module and i LOVE it! So get used to it and hope those that want to succeed will
I have had success with this school,it does need some work in areas however ,they did their job I graduated and they helped me get a job as a Medical Assistant, I was hired with a doctor a day before graduation, as of now in 2016 I'm running a doctors office as a Patient Care Coordinator, its what you make of it,you do what you suppose to as a student you will succeed. I've seen alot of students play around.They did not do what they were suppose to do. The school could be better.
Im back in school and was really excited to hear that my other class mates were able to use their credits from another school....but because i decided to go to UEI...my credits/units didn't matter. Its hard to find a REAL college or REAL university that will take these credit
