UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (216)
..Everything was good. I loved my teacher, and graduated just fine. BUT.. After is when I started having problems. They didnt send what they needed to send to get me the things I needed so I can apply for jobs. I had to call continuously and no one ever responded
UEI....what can i say good about the school.
Nothing! It's a waste of your time and money. I attended back in 97 and i wish i would have just went to a regular community collage to get what i wanted. 7 days to decide if you want to do this? Not enough time. you should at least get two weeks. At first i liked it. but it wasn't challenging because i spent a lot of time in doctors offices i knew all the procedures and stuff. After i finished I got a nice job then i became really i'll and could not longer work. That student loan has cost me well over 20k and for what? UEI is over priced and really just a quick course.
This is medical people, you shouldn't want to get through a medical program in 8 months!. There are some success stories, but there are more horror stories. But my advice is to go to your local community collage, get a grant and have them pay you to be in class...lol
I am on my last module in the computer system technician program at the Chula Vista campus. This is one of the biggest regrets in my life. This school is a waste of time and money $15,000 dollars to be exact.
There is no hands on what so ever, the teachers are unprofessional and unqualified, they teach straight out of textbooks, the staff from education department don't really care about the students after you sign. This class is impossible to fail, you can even cheat on the weekly exams because all they want you to do is pass, because the school doesn't get that money unless you finish the eight months.
Several students have talked to the education department about the teaching ethics but no action is ever taken. They just say that we will investigate and I three months later it's still the same. So overall there is nothing positive about this school unless you don't have internet at home. You can pay 15,000 for eight months of free internet. I hope this helps people who thought of attending this campus. Don't do it.
In regards to the CST students post, I was a straight A student when I attended uei and the only thing I learned was that this school wasted my time and money. As for the 7 day policy, that is not enough time to make any kind of judgment. This school likes to lie to students and tell them that they make to much money and don't qualify for financial aid. They care more about attendance than whether or not the students learn. I've seen students missed day's every week and still pass the mod.I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy because they are that bad. I hope they get their accreditation pulled and they get shutdown. DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL OR BELIEVE WHAT THEY TELL YOU TAKE IT FROM ALL OF US WHO GOT SCREWED UEI IS AN EVIL CORPORATION!!!!!!
The school is great. I'm a CST student and I have had zero issues. If you study and do your work you will do fine. I am almost in my last mod and have had zero issues. The people on here crying are the ones in class who do nothing. You should have read the contract when you met your rep. You could have left after 7 days if you did not like it with no charge. I recommend this school to anyone who is willing to work for what they want out of life.
I enrolled with UEI in San Bernardino July2009 thinking it was going to be everything the rep promised. IT WAS ALL A LIE!! The first days in class were ok, but after a while you start realizing how unprofessional the staff is. They come here whining about their personal problems and they are all lazy as f***. Weve been sub'd for the past few months by subs who obviously could care less. If i could go back i wouldnt waste my time or money... and im mad cause more than half of the people that have been in UEI cant find a damm job! Not worth the money or time.
It took me two years to finish the pharmacy program, I dropped twice because of the great dissappointment I had with the quality of education and the way the staff treat you.
The instructors are nice but the administration or may be the IEC corporation does not give enough support for making their job easier by supplying the appropiate equipment to properly train and instruct the students.
They make a little more than $1,000 per month per student, and yet they can't suppply equipment. I remember it took almost a year just to get stools for the lab, everyone had to search in the breakroom for a chair to drag it to class so you could sit.
Then we ran out of IV bags and now we have to reuse the ones we've already mixed. We ran out of cocoa butter so we had to unwrap and reuse already made suppositories, so we could pretend we were doing the job. In the computer lab you have to fight to get a working computer and if you're lucky you will get one with a mouse.
The only reason I came back to finish the program was because I was already in debt because of them. If I am going to have to pay the money might as well finish the program although I was not satisfied at all. The admission reps are very friendly and know how to persuade and convince you to sign the contract with them... but once you're in, they don't care to even say hi to you... instead some even trat you like rats... especially in the education department where the registrar makes a lot of mistakes, and everytime you try to go and fix it, she just gives you attitude and doesn't even gives you a chance to explain before she's asking you to leave.
They talk about helping you with job placement... THEY WON'T EVEN HELP YOU WITH FINDING AND EXTERNSHIP SITE!!!.... they just give you a paper for you to go look for buisness cards of places that are willing to take you in... (basically you do the job hunt, but they get the cridit because you have to submmit what you find to them)...
SO EVERYTHING IS A LIE!
ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY!! THEY WILL BE NICE TO YOU AND OFFER TO BRING DOWN HEAVEN! BUT ONCE YOU SIGN YOUR CONTRACT, YOU'RE JUST A NUMBER TO THEM.
The admissions counselors Van Nuys are unprofessional they lie and one of them the one named Summer is having sex with students. That place is a dump. The instructors don't care. Do not go to this school!!!!!!!
OMG!!! I WISH I WOULD OF READ ALL THESE REVIEWS BEFORE I ENROLLED. I AM CURRENTLY ATTENDING THE EL MONTE CAMPUS AND ITS SOOOOO GUETTO!!
AFTER ATTENDING ORIENTATION I HONESTLY WAS SO EXCITED. THE FIRST MONTH IT WAS GOOD. BUT AFTER THAT I REALIZED I WAS BACK IN JUNIOR HIGH (NOT EVEN HIGH SCHOOL). THEY TALK TO SO MUCH ABOUT HOW THEY DO NOT TOLERATE DRUGS AND FIGHTING ON CAMPUS. BUT YET I HAD A STUDENT IN MY CLASS GET COUGHT WITH DRUGS AND TWO FIGHTS AND STILL WALK INTO CLASS LIKE NOTHING. WHAT A JOKE!!!!
HOW ARE WE SUPPOSE TO FEEL SAFE ON CAMPUS. ALL UEI WANTS IS MONEY. THEY COULD CARE LESS IF WE LEARN CRAP. THE LAB CLASSES DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH EQUIPMENT FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THEY ARE RIPPING OFF. I JUST REALLY REGRET IT BECAUSE WE I KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST LIKE ME THAT ENROLL THINKING THEY ARE ATTENDING A MATURE FACILITY AND SOON REALIZED ITS ALL A BIG JOKE.
WELL THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY. I HOPE IF YOU ARE READING THIS YOU HAVE NOT YET SIGN THOSE PAPERS AT UEI. DO NOT DO IT!!!!!
ok i've been reading the reviews for this school and alot of them are true...some reviews are good and some bad and they're both good arguements. I attended this school in the Chula Vista Campus starting Jul. 2009, at first i liked the school i liked what they were about...after a while i realized my teacher didn't really know squat about what she was talking about, half the time she was talking about personal issues in her life, i understood that she wanted to get closer to her students but at the same time ur NOT my friend ur my teacher, i wasn't lazy, i did all my work i passed my quizes etc. but for some reason i wasn't getting what i needed to learn...
now about the students, there was alot of drama...i felt like i was back in high school, i was maybe one of the youngest but i'm not stupid leave the drama at home, you come to this "college" to get and education for a career, i didn't enroll just to see a bunch of students, who thought they were tough because they didn't finish high school or they came from a bad neighborhood...i come from both but it's common sense...now i'm not complaining i'm stating facts, i'm $13,000 in debt, i regret it the medical ssisting program was a fluke!!!i go dropped, i didn't go one weekend for a personal issue, and i got dropped and didn't find out until i was in class about to sign in and my name wasn't on the sign in sheet, wow, thanks for making me feel stupid, i was told i had to go back and talk to one of the counserlers i did and every date that was set to get me back in he was nowhere to be found, great, i'm here busting my ass to get back into school and do better but the people i need to talk to, to make it happen have dissapeared...thank you UEI College for wasting my time and money...
