"UEI equal debt and lies. Please dont go to this school, all they care about is MONEY!!! No guarante job after you finish the program, they dont give you time to find a job before they report your loan on your credit. Ghetto and unprofessional teachers, they need to shut this school down and stop taking people money. No expanded functions come with this over priced school and in the dental field they will like for you to have expanded functions but nope high a** UEL doesnt offer it. Run from this school"

"Okay so I was in the dental assistant program. I don't regret going to this school . I went to class everything . I love my teachers . The advisors is most definitely about their money . I do not care about your future . Just need you to enroll so they can get their check . I am a go getter so I did not depend on them to help me found a job . About a month left I had , I called people myself . I found a office did the internship for them , then I got hired on . Now I am getting myself prepared for my RDA license . This school can be okay if you just go out and find places yourself. Do not wait for them for nothing ! Also I still haven't received my diploma. I never went to graduation , because I feel like it was a joke . Just more money they want out your pocket . They son even give you the diploma that same day . I have a career now in the dental assistant career. So I am not worried about a sheet a paper . If you are a type of person that depends on other people to help you get something done , I wouldn't recommend this school . Just think if you went to a university you would have to do the same go out and find jobs yourself . They don't care about your future like you do !"

"Do Not Go To UEI. I went to this school in San Marcos. I graduated with a 3.74 GPA, all that hard work for nothing... Because I'm not making enough in the field I studied for, Dental Assisting, I tried going into the Army but I can't because I need an Official Transcript & they won't give it to me unless I pay off all of my student loan. STUPID! I want to defend my country & this school won't give me the opportunity"

"Don't waist your money here . this school is extremely expensive . I graduated and found my own job in my field they don't help and once I got in my field realized this school didn't prepare us for half of what we needed to know . They tell you your going to come out of school make a ton of money .You don't and these credits are not transferrable."

"Worst experience of my life at the fresno campus. It is ghetto,and the teachers are not professional. I was lied to about my payments when they knew I had no source of income. I still have not found a job and they suck at helping you. The extern site they sent me to was terrible and that place got shut down a week after I was done. And still no help with finding a job and they changed my career service person without even telling me so I've been contacting the wrong number the whole time. This place needs to get shut down. I want my money back and I will gladly be apart of anything having to do with suing them."

"This school lurs in people and promises a stable great, paying job that will better you for the future but instead all of it was a lie and I owe thousands with nothing to show for it. When I signed up tey told me that I would be making 12$ an hour to start and that I would be RDA certified to later find out that I could be making minimum wage and that I was not RDA certified only trained and I would have to pay over 200$ of my own money to take the RDA test and to rent the equipment I would need for the test (which to me is ridiculous because I'm paying a fortune already and my tution should be covering everything I need to succeed and because they toys me they would certify me) To be honest I'm not to sure how I graduated cuz I didn't get all my stuff done in time and the teacher forged her name to say I completed the course and because of that I'm not properly train in my field and which make it difficult for me to get a job because I was not certified correctly and I don't feel comfortable working in someones mouth. This school should be closed down and return my money."

"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."

"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."
