UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (213)
I'm going to the uei in el monte and im taking MBIC.. i love it my teacher Ms. M. is the best. i dont like MA. most of the MA class are not good they get high across the street even with their teacher but my class is the best i really see my class doing real good when they finish. I recomend MBIC and Ms. M. class.
I went to the computer program with UEI in Ontario about 3 years ago. After researching the conditions for a friend, it reminded me of the bad experience for me. It seems like the same issues.Allowing anyone to attend causes problems for those interested in learning.
Too much music, videos, people late, fighting takes away your valuable learning time. It is big fraud the computer training taught people to steal operating systems, copy DVD's. The instructor was giving copied DVD's to the other staff members. I reported the incident to a state of CA judge.
Students should start questioning the school management at the moment of disruptions and lies are seen. I exposed big fraud and my bill was removed. Dont wait until externship month before you start asking questions. Make friends with others in the last module to find out what externship UEI did for them. Many are lied to and they dont find out until the externship module.
There are so many stories on here that make me really skeptical of how true they are because as they say there are always two sides of every story. My rep was very up front with me from the get-go. I came in there with one question, and asked her what the price of the program was, no BS aside, she was literally the first person out of these schools that didn't put me through tons of questions of "this and that" and answered the only thing I wanted to know. I respected her for that. Then of course I let her do her thing of telling me about the medical billing program which by the way, I LOVE!
You see sometimes people don't understand the concept of these types of schools. They don't want YOUR BS either. They also get measured by certain compliance rules and percentages. I know this because I DID MY RESEARCH. I think it's fair to say that if you want to get into something as important as education, you really might want to not jump into conclusions and make sure you UNDERSTAND everything that you are signing and reading and take your time. Because if you don't then it's a "he said she said game" and which brings me back to my saying: "there's always two sides to every story"
To those seeking an education and most of all a vocational school, make sure you are aware of job placement percentage rates. Talk to all of the people from the front desk to the instructor you may be getting before you start your class. IT'S YOUR MONEY and EDUCATION, so make sure it's the right school for you. All these schools offer a better life in a short amount of time. I absolutely can't go to a community college. It's going to take me too long to get momey coming in so that's why I went here instead and I wouldn't take back my decision. I'm always going to start my externship soon, and everything that I've experienced here is positive.
i attended UEI back in 2009 to become a pharmcay tech. i graduated in january 2010; the school was suppose to send my application for my tech license but they never did and i didn't find out till march 2011 and that was beacuse i kept calling them and bugging them. so i had to get my finger prints redone and wait more time.
They said it would take about a month for me to receive my license but till this day nothing. i keep calling them and no answer, i go to the school and "no one is available at the moment to help me" Now i'm finding out that they are still doing the same thing to other students.
there are so many great jobs in the area i live but i have no license so i can't get a job. i also reported them to the board pf pharmacy and till this day no response. now i'm stuck with a big loan and no pharmacy tech license... they truly screwed my over. oh i forgot this UEI is located in Huntington Park, ca 90255.
I enrolled in the dental assisting program at the anaheim campus and must say have had a pleasant experience,if ur here to learn its up to u to strive,u cant enroll and then expect the school to learn and wnt to strive for you,give me a break guys and stop putting the blame on someone else!!!!!
UEI college in San Diego is a waste of your time and money! You will not get what you pay for. You will be one in a thousand to get placed if you are lucky. Their method of teaching is such that you will be lucky to pass any certificate exam.
They are VERY UNORGANIZED! You will be the looser in this case. JS
Well, add my son as another victim of this school. Now that he has completed his coursework, UEI has nothing to do with him. They won't return phone call, will not complete the form he needs to submit his application for his license and hounds him about the remaining money he owes. I will be reporting them to the department of edcuation as all of you should do. And by all means, do not attend that school. They only take your money!!!!!
I am a college graduate with an older degree in a field which is no longer in demand. I am looking into UEI for a career change and because of it's proximity to my home. I also like the flexible hours and schedules, but after having read several of these reviews, I am inclined to look elsewhere.
UEI sounds like all the other for profit schools out there. Unqualified teachers and lack of career placement support seem to be a common complaint. I plan on looking at other programs before I make my final decision.
I also wanted to note that many of the people who have written negative reviews also had very poor writing and grammar skills. Is there a correlation? Just something to think about.
I am going to be honest, I graduated from UEI 9 years ago, and it was nothing like it is now. You have teachers who truely care about students, and want to see each and every student become the best, but those instructors are the ones UEI dont want- Those are the instructors UEI gets ride of, because we cant get certian students to come to school best in long run
think twice going to this school i had problems since day one every month finacial office comes and interups my learning and they argue with me asking wheres the money i argue and argue and they dont care that i have a job that i cant afford clothes or that your parents are not working they want the money badly and they treath me to kick me out if i didnt pay come on!!!
uei said you dont have to pay until you start working on the field and youll be paying i qualify for finacial aid but still they charging 2000 dollars of fee makes no sense i hate this school even thou ima end my module this week and get to work althou teaching teachers dont teach well they teach out of the book and you have to read it but good info and you learn alot but teachers no problem worry about students and paying finacial office every month, 15,000 dollars to go to uei that you will later pay when you work in the field
