I love UEI maybe it was just a bad experience for others my experience at UEI is great so far I've learned so much the business program is great I truly recommend it !!! I start my bachelors after UEI when I finish I will have experience in the business field thanks to UEI plus my bachelors ALL jobs require experience and a degree why do 4 Years finish and have no experience in the field ? Experience is almost as Important as a degree !

I have always believed that it depends in the person and how committed they are to there education.

I love this school they’re really helpful and my instructor is the BEST. I'm happy with everyone I know here because they have all helped me in someway.

I do see people walking around here like they don’t care but you know what this school gives you an opportunity. YOU are the one that needs to take that extra step to be successful. I do see that some instructors are way to easy but I believe it is good to be that way because to me it’s a test who is committed. No matter how hard a instructor tries to help one the student is responsible to say “I WANT TO LEARN”.

I also see people acting like its high school all over again and some drop out. You guys do have to pay back why would u waste your time and money if your not committed.

I have recommended two people to come to this school really close friends and they love it as well as I do I wouldn’t go to any other school.

Always remember these wonderful people are here to help but YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO HELP YOUR SELF FIRST AND THEY CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH.

At the end of the day the students make the school what it is and are responsible to do what they can to be SUCCESSFUL.

THANK YOU UEI FOR EVERYTHING AND TO EVERYONE THAT HELPED ME ALONG THE WAY!

No Professionalism in the workplace, very uneasy on your schedule, its not easy being at school and work at the same time, you cant pay the bills if you cant atleast get a paycheck, the things you learn dont truly help you make really good money, its a waste of money, don't do it

I read reviews about this school saying it was great and everything and now that i see this im 2nd guessing about it. i went in today to talk to a addmin. rep and all i wanted to know was more about the Medical assisting. and they couldnt even tell me over the phone..

i went to the riverside campus and i was asking all these questions and faking a smile and everything..and than she says oh its $50.00 to register !! and the program is 15,500. umm ok. and shes like you can pay your registration today and start tonight and im like woahhh i just wanted more info and pricing of the school. not just jump right away into it and she kept pushing and pushing me and i had to be like wait i need to talk to my family first about the money.

and she had the nerve to say well cant you call them and have them come pay for it. i think thats when i though this is ridiculous !! and after reading all the comments i rather stay at my community college than go to UEI... thank you everyone for your reviews im am not going to attend here at all

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.

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
