UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (217)
I am currently attending UEI College for a Dental Assisting Program. I do agree it is expensive, and I wish I would have been told there was a grace period to drop out; not because I don't like it there, but I may have chosen a different program. One of the reasons I chose this school over others is because I was told it was 8 months long... I started in December and will not be finished until SEPTEMBER (10 months), THEN I will have to do extern (170 hours). I had the idea that the 7 modules were each one month, then the 8th module (extern) was about 1 month (depending on how you utilize my time) As someone else has mentioned, they often run out of supplies and equipment is broken. I've recently finished my x-ray module and was unable to practice with digital x-rays because the machine has been broken the ENTIRE TIME! Digital x-rays are what are mainly used in the dental office. All whining aside, I've learned a lot here so far. And I enjoy both lecture and lab. I have a 4.0 and plan to hand in my student ambassador letter soon. I will write more once I have finished here.
This school is a joke ! You're better off going to a community college for more than half the price. They say they help you find a career when in all reality all they do is put your resume on career builder. I invested so much time and money into a piece of crap school and it was all for nothing ! Since this school has such bad reviews it's hard to find a job when employer's have a bad image in their head about the school you attended. And if you try and drop out you still have to pay back all your loans. Don't do what I did and attend this horrible place they call a career building school. It's just the worst. I dont have words for how bad this school is.
I attended UEI back when it used to be ANTHEM college. I am warning everyone who is even considering coming to this school PLEASE DONT! They will rob you blind and fill you with empty promises. I have been out of school for months with no job and THOUSANDS in debt. I have had to resort to pawning my own things for my tuiton all because I put all my faith in this school. There is no job and there is no help. All they do is put your resume up on careerbuilder and leave you to drown in your monthly bills. Please. Learn from my BIG mistake. Do not come here.
UEI College Fresno Has Been A Great Help So Far . My Teacher Is Wonderful And Helps A Lot. Even The School In General Are Renting Rooms At Some Places So You Can Be Closer And Waste Less Gas If You Live Outta Town, Yes It Has Its Flaws But What Matters Is That We Have The Supplies We Need And The Education We're Paying For.So Far Its All Worth It Because Im Learning Everything I Need To Know And Im Ready To Be Out On Extern In 2 Months. Not Everybody Will Give A Positive Review For Any School. The Administraters Actually Show They Care For You When They See Your Putting Effort In Your Education.
I understand where many of the people are coming from the school seems like a scam. The person I talked to said this school was great and I was going to be out quick ... I could have gone to city college and take the course there and I would be out in the same amount of time. The class is always running out of supplies. Some of the instructors are rude and harass the students. I personally get harassed by my instructor and I told her boss and all that was said to me was that's just the way she is. The school is also in shambles and unsanitary. There are rodents in the ceiling and there are many roaches at the school.
Career colleges tend to be hack/scam schools. They tend not to be accredited, say you go out of state the cetificate/diploma is near useless. The program I was signed in would take about 8 months to complete for the cost of $16,000+ usd Anyone can do that in a community college for less or no cost, given you keep your grades up to qualify for scholars and/or FAFSA (financial aide). This scam school is only good at putting most students in debt. If you're lucky to get a job it'll still be minimum. I was at the San Marcos, CA location, both enrollment officer and instructor were very rude. I 'm relived I happened to cancel a day before my "trial" period ended, the enrollment officer was upset and belittling me when I showed up to his office with the signed paper of cancellation.
I Feel so bad about how this school is operating. Dont go here. This is a for-profit school, it is accredited by a major board locally so if you move to Arizona, your money and time wont be worth anything but you'll still have a 300dollar monthly payment for so many years. Forget this school. Do your research. If you see a commericial on TV about a career school chances are that there desperate and all they want is your Money. I attented Uei Riverside, yeah they said anything and everything you wanna hear just to get you to enroll and get there money. So I went for a week and they ask you to sign in everyday at the main office BUT they dont tell you that those six days are your probation period where you can stop attending without any financial obligation. well I dropped out the seventh say so yes i had to freaking pay them money for the stupid 6 days that I attended. The way the Finance guy Tran said they divide your tution into 8 months then divide that into 30 days of the month and that results the amount of how much does your attendace everyday cost base on what your paying. I got 77 dollars a day . Thats b.s. (sorry). Thanks to my Family told me to drop out becuase what is 450dollars compare to a 10 year monthly payment for a diploma not even a associates. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL. ITS NOT EVEN A SCHOOL. ITS A SCAM FOR YOUR MONEY.
I'm going for medical assistant and by far it's great they are very flexible with you and make sure you get an great education and make sure that you have the right help and instructors to get you were you need to be to exceed your career.
I wouldn't recommend this school. They promised to help find you an internship site and if you dont get the job there they will help you find another job. They didn't do either of those things for me, also while i was in school i heard others complain about it as well.
Let me just start off by saying I had a really good instructor who challenged and motivated us to the best of our abilities that's the only good thing I will say I went to the riverside, CA campus I have been passionate about the medical field my whole life, I was an A student, got awarded Ambassador for my 3.7 GPA, had perfect attendance and I cannot find a job for my life and UEI hasn't helped me an ounce in fact they like to text me once in a while to tell me I need to try harder I am now burred in debt that I can't afford and I am too scared to go back to school to fall in more debt and possibly be jobless again. When I first started at this school they told me I would be making $18.00 an hour when they found me a job after school so let me set that straight if you do get a job after the MA program you will only make minimum wage ($9.00/hour) but most facilities want an experienced MA and BILINGUAL. You are better off getting a minimum wage job at McDonald's because at least you won't be in debt $13,000. Do not go to this school, save yourself, they don't help you, all they want is YOUR MONEY, you will be on your ass, paying hundreds of dollars a month on a loan you took out to have NO job. Take it from me I worked my ass off to have good grades, and good attendance and I still don't have a job and out of the hundreds of people I graduated with in the same program I only know of TWO people that have a job as an MA. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR A CAREER THAT IS IN DEMAND.. YOU ARE BETTER OFF GOING TO A COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
