UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (220)
You're going to notice two or three patterns in the positive comments. A successful exten, They had connections and people that could get them in, Or they ended up in a different carrier field and just liked the school to begin with. It is very true that the students teach you more than the teachers. It is very true that you'll end up paying a lot more than you should. In all honesty, It would be far less expensive and far easier to go to community collage and take classes there. Not only that, You'll end up with an associates degree instead of a diploma. Not even a certificate. They give you a diploma. Please let that sink in. You pay $20,000 For a DIPLOMA. You pay $20,000 to be TAUGHT BY STUDENTS. They don't care about you. You're a paycheck to them. Trust me. Do your research. If you're desperate for a job, Work in sales or fast food and go to a real collage. Its going to be harder. It's gonna suck. But you will get way more out of it.
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 !
I have been incarcerated most my life UEI contacted me to enroll. They told me I was going to graduate with a JOB. I explained my situtaion about having a rap sheet, they said they could still gert one based on my education I was going to get there at the school and extern. I graduated with perfect attendance and 4.0 . They came to me and asked if I knew anyone or place that would let me extern ..I was like "what" is it not that your job ...They pulled personal loans they took my pell grant money subsidezed unsubsidized loans financial aid.. $20,000.00 all together I have to pay back for a piece of paper that has no value. They couldnt even get me an extern site. Almost everyone of my classmates were poor or minority or felons.. This school preys on the weak, and gets paid ! How is this school even still opend? I dont understand how they are able to manipulate people like they are. Dont come to this school!! I graduated with honors and perfect attendance was even asked to do the speech at graduation.. I dont recomend this scam fake school to no one! My advice enroll into a real college that you can earn a degree.
I learn front and back office I learned to give shots take rig fill out medical records read and give prescriptions learn how to take care of patients with cancer heart problems different diseases how to run a front office how to assist a doctor in surgery.
My experience at this school was horrible, I was physically attack and I was the one who was dissmissed from the class. I am filing a a lawsuit! I went to the director too many time for him not to solve dismissed the students that R**** to attack me! Thank God I already had a bachelors degree!
I only worked for a year as pharmacy technician because I received better offers in manufacturing, that's what I used to do. I don't regret graduating from this school only because the school loans helped build my credit, as for a new career they will not help you find one. When I worked my first job as a pharmacy technician UEI found out and contacted me asking if I can tell my employer to take interns. I just started working there I wouldn't ask that, knowing they would deny that demand. UEI asked assertively, not politely, like if they wanted me to do their job. I'm writing today because they sent me a letter saying I owe them $500....six years later and want to settle for $250, sounds like a scam. They have caused nothing but financial burden to me.
I graduated from High School, after 3 years i decided to go to college for a better education. Went to enroll to UEI College and i was happy because i thought that i was going to have a better job. Graduated for MBIC from UEI College and never been hire even though i have summit it to many applications. I do get job interviews but because i don't have a list a year of experience they don't want to hire me. I stop paying my loan and now they have me in collections. Now i have to get a lawyer for this problem and put Lawsuit against UEI college, because they promise me a job with a list getting pay $11 to $12 per hour. The owner where i did my extern told me this, How are you expecting to get pay that money if you just started? My answer, Well they told me that i a list be getting pay $11-$12 per hour. I could pay you the $9.00 per hour. Ok think California is really expensive i was paying $950 per month for a garage, insurance $70 per month, and gas it was $200 a month, and my college payment was $455 per month and being a single mom of 2 kids. I don't think that with $9.00 dollars and hour i was going to make it. Now i have to pay the lawyer in order to get out of my debt from collections for a loan forgiveness. They told me they were going to find me a job, never happen. They just wanted me to be going for practices at different places and not getting pay. I DON"T RECOMMEND UEI COLLEGE FOR ANYTHING. They do have really good instructors but NO JOB GUARANTEE.
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 went to UEI ready and excited to start my career.My rep didn't know the rules of her job,she said I was able to go to the school even though I didn't officially have my high school diploma I was currently in a high school program. Before I sign papers and committed to going to the school I told her I was only three tests away from getting my high school diploma but I also had to pay a big tuition,so I don't officially have my high school diploma until I pay off the tuition.she said I can still go.On my second day of school the teacher gave us a basic information on blood pressure, pulse, respiratory and temperature.She then had the older students teach the new students how to do it.When I was lost I would ask the older students (who she had teaching us) what to do they would look at me like I was stupid or I was supposed to know the answer.I don't know if the newest student for pretending to know what to do but I felt like I was the only one lost.When I said I was going to go ask the teacher they told me that the teacher would be mad because I had a dermal piercing. My rep pulled me out of class and told me that I would have a week to finish my high school diploma or I would have to leave school.I wasn't able to finish it in a week but I did finish it .They asked me to get a paper from my current high school program saying I completed it.I did but it was not enough for UEI.I called her and started to talk to her about it ,asking her what should I do.I wanted to get back in school to start my career.she then tried to blame me for not getting my high school diploma stuff done in time,I told her she was the one who said that I could go there without my diploma in my hand.she didn't take any responsibility for her actions.eventually got off the phone with each other and she never called me back.The school was a big disappointment to me.Those of you deciding to go to UEI Stockton campus beware that you will be paying around $20,000 to get taught by students who haven't even began their medical assisting career.
I was a mentor at UEI College and I loved it. They gave me everything I wanted. I have found a place to work and to do my externship and I have a huge chance of getting hired. I can't say anything bad about them because I haven't had a bad experience.
