"I graduated from UEI in San Diego at the kearny mesa location which no longer exist. I recently contacted UEI since I NEVER received my diploma through the mail. Now I have to pay $30 for a copy. I was and have not been able to obtain employment in the field, neither have 99% of my classmates. This institution is a joke, all they do is collect your money and provide no help. Please DO NOT ATTEND UEI"

"This experience has been a waist of time, not to mention over $19,000.00. The material learned is basic and does not begin to qualify you for the field at all. The coding is touched upon but these courses does not get you certified at all. You will still end up working a front desk receptionist position. Which you can o tain without all the time and money waisted. It's a complete joke. They need to be shut down."

"This was the worst mistake in my life. The school harassed me during class for a payment, sent me to do my internship at a small clinic as a receptionist, (not a biller) I owe $15 thousand in Student loans, and 7 years later, I still dont have a job in that field. PLEASE DONT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL."

"I was enrolled into the medical and billing program and as usual they promised me a job and a education. I go to the encino campus, they use to be in van nuys but relocated. I regret ever signing up and enrolling. I was super depressed at the time and was having problems with my significant other , I thought I was going to end up alone with no financial support for me and my son. UEI came along and the councilor started sympathizing with me and I decided to go into the school so I can make money for me and my son. I am on my last week before I go to Externship. I don't even have a Externship and I have been looking for one by myself because my coordinator keeps placing me in far places like Los Angeles when she knows I have no transportation or any dollar to my name to pay for bus fare.She admittedly said if you don't go to any interview I set up for you, you can go find your own because I'm not. Letting you ruin my 100% of people placed into Externship. Not only that but my instructor is such a air head. When I first went into her class she promised so much and would brag about how much she would be making when she first entered the field. It was enticing and I studied super hard and she actually believed in us. She taught us more than entry level and about how to deal with corporate America. But ever since she enrolled to get her master's degree, she doesn't teach us anymore at all an instead yells at us every day. She starts saying you guys are more than entry level because of what you have learned but if u forget and don't study your worth minimum wage(which is true) but then she starts getting personal, she will bring you up and make you feel good then she'll say things like "what you guys do is baby work, I have to write essays and do this and that , I don't need any of you , I promise you I will get my master's degree and you all will be flabbergasted, I don't need any of you, in fact without me you'd be nothing, I don't care what's going on in your life I don't care about your excuses" then she makes us get up one by one to give her a excuse why some people didn't do hw or studied (even though you did study and did all your hw she would still make you point out flaws and make a excuse) all she does is yell at us everyday even if it's not about our class she will yell at us because some students from another class were smoking weed, and she. Doesn't keep anything about a student confidential. She will either talk about you in front of the entire class behind your back or when you are there about personal issues. And she really bugs you about your personal life and will call you and harrass you until you tell her something and she says she is there for you by then she says she doesn't care about our personal life? All she does is yell at us everyday now and makes us feel horrible about ourselves all because we don't have a master degree. She doesn't teach anymore just makes us feel bad everyday and I'm not the. Only student who feels that way. I regret enrolling and there is a lot of girls who are younger than me in my class and living with their parents who are only paying 13000 and less for tuition while I'm paying off 20,000 while trying to support my baby by myself ."

"I got sucked in with their "Promises" and all I got was knowledge in a field that I can't even get my foot in the door not to mention they never gave me my certificate of completion or as they call it "Diploma". They don't help you with job searching and or placement once you complete the courses. They tell you what you want to hear to pull you into their little "Trap" and you end up getting screwed over with student loan debts and hassles. I wouldn't recommend this school to anybody since they don't help you like they say they will."

"This was a massive waste of $18,300 and a year of my time. I graduated in 2014, and have been working for over a year at $9 an hour. I made more than that before. The company is a joke, and even with AAPC certification it is still nearly impossible to get a job in this field that pays what they promise you. When I went in I was assured I would START at $13 an hour, and make more from there. I am seriously considering going back to retail and throwing away the huge amount of money I have spent on this waste of time career."

"I was not happy with the school because I was not give any job search assistance. The school basically tells you anything you want to hear just to get you enrolled. No help at all, go to a JC. The classes will be less expensive and you won't have to take out a student loan for thousands of dollars."

"Be careful when signing up that this is the right course for you. I was talked into taking this course when the course I really wanted was the Medical Assistant program and was not being offered until next year. I approached the school on three different occasions after starting the medical and insurance billing course about my concerns that I was not in the right program. This is a very expensive college and it was a costly mistake for me. I changed schools to do the Medical Assistant course."

"This was the worst financial decision of my life. As a single mother, I took this course in the hopes of providing a better life for me and my son. What it turned out to be was a huge financial liability that I will be paying for the rest of my life. My instructor, while knowledgeable and well established in the medical billing field, spent the majority of the instruction time talking about her family, focusing her attention on a married man who did not return her affections, allowed her "favorite" students to get away with anything and everything in class and would rather read what was on the overhead projector than actually teach what we really needed to make a career in this field. Personally, she felt threatened by me and used her relationship with others to wage a damaging campaign against me. The last two months of my time in her classroom were tough; no one would speak to me and she did not help in my transition to the real world. In short, I learned basically nothing in her class and three years later have not found a job in the medical billing and coding profession. The placement staff at UEI college is a huge joke. They are unprepared and have no real leads on where to place their graduating students. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL; YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY"
