UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (212)
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
First of all Miriam, Maybe you should open your eyes and read that this is a College Review for students to express their personal experience with this school. Some of us in fact most of us have done all we can or all we are able to do at out level to get our situations resolved. We feel that we DID NOT get the education that we paid for.
The Administration at this college is very unprofessional and this school only cares about money. We as students feel that we are just numbers. Some of us have complained to Instructors, education department and the campus president and got absolutely no where. It's not always about switching your schedule either.
And the reps will say anything to you to get you to sign that contract. You can't have a good education if your instructor or school doesn't care about us. How many of these instructors hold teaching degrees? how much experience did they have? how many employees have been in and out of just one campus alone? there is a reason why UEI had a bad reputation and these employers will not say it's the students they will say it's the school. And if it is the student? we are paying the school to learn.
You can show up to school every single day does not mean you will learn anything. I've seen students in my class barely show up to school and get fail their exams I've seen them get bad grades and still walk away with an A at the end of the mod. These instructors play favorites and it shouldn't be about how much you like someone because there are some of us who worked hard and still didn't get the grades we deserved.
I understand the school get money for every student that show up to school everyday. What about those days when the school would have meetings for the whole day, and give all of us the day off but still have us sign in the day before as if we were going to be there so that the school can get money. The school gets money to teach NOT TO HAVE MEETINGS.
I've seen a lot of crookedness this school has done and I will do what I have to and get my point across to other people. I have already talked at least 50 people out of going to this school based off of my and my friends experience. And now its a matter of time till this school gets shut down for good.
My husband works for NBC and I will be using that to my advantage. When it comes to these schools I believe concord takes the cake. They have more requirements as far as admissions go and I wish I had gone there in the first place. UEI has negative reviews all over the internet and you don't see that about other school not as bad so there must be a reason for it. Who knows better other than us students who have actually experienced it for ourselves.
Any of the students that don't have anything to negative to say either got lucky and had an instructor that cared about their students or really didn't care about their own and just wanted to graduate just so that they can say they have a diploma.
There are a lot of us out there and DAMN RIGHT WE ARE FULL OF COMPLAINTS BECAUSE THIS SCHOOL IS FULL OF LIES AND DECEPTION. THEY LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING. STUDENT SUCCESS IS OUR SUCCESS MEANS AS LONG AS WE KEEP SCAMMING PEOPLE OUR WALLETS GET FATTER. THIS SCHOOL IS A COMPLETE RIP OFF THEY HAVE BURNT THEMSELVES OUT WITH EXTERNSHIP SITES WITH ALL PROGRAMS AND NO ONE WANTS TO HIRE UEI GRADUATES EITHER. I WILL KEEP ON EXERSISING MY RIGHT TO GET THE TRUTH OUT TILL THIS SCHOOL GETS CLOSED DOWN!!!!!!
