Just lies since the beginning. They claim to help you look for a job but what do they do they just drop you like nothing. I remember when they called saying they will " set up an interview and they will call back with the info" psh what information they never even decided to call back. Shoot I received my license probably two- three week after I finished my extern.

It's obvious they only care about the Money and they never cared about the students bc the teachers are always giving the best to those students that kiss up to the teachers and that's what the teachers want as well. I believe that we should all get together and send to court to return our Money and to shut down all those useless school.

Graduation Year: 2011

I "graduated" from UEI San Bernardino last september and ive gotten nothing but headaches from that school. once they get a good person you can work with they fire them. or they leave the school or they completely ignore you. its been all about the money ever since i signed up. plus they fired my teacher IN THE MIDDLE OF CLASS, then decided to give the class a lecture on professionalism. the whole class walked on. no one got a job thru the school.

no one in finiancial aide was helpful either. the admissions department is changing and ripping people off promising them a good future and career right after graduation. if you even get to graduating you get nothing but lectures about how to dress and be professional, which the school has no idea about.

I regret going to uei. everytime someone asks me how my "schooling" was, i always say it was a ripoff because its true. they just want your money. they dont care what you do AFTER you leave the classroom.

The tryout is only a week, seeing if you like it or not, after going for about a week, u are given ur extra books and scrubs, now you're considered a full time student... after youre kinda settling in they tell you that just about all of the uei campuses are on probation and that u might hav to pay the tuition out of ur own pocket after nearly a month of education, and that those who are about to got for their intern or ex tern might not even happen.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2012

Last may i was supposed to be transfered from SD campus but it took the riverside campus til now (may 2012) almost a year i was on an LOA. i enrolled and noticed how unorganized they were i had to resign paper work 7times for enrollment & financial add & school credits to be transfered!

Our class had several different substitutes since ours was always out. the new teacher picks and chooses who he wants to help durring class which is highly unprofessional & unethical! i still dont have an externship sight after giving them several buissness cards and i leave this thursday! i dont recomend the riverside campus!!! good luck

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2012

When I decided to attend UEI I thought it was going to be a good thing. But I was wrong I got stuck with a $16,000 bill that I have to pay back. I don't have a job, they never helped me get an externship I had to do it on my own. I have no clue why they put on their commercials that they help you when they don't so might as well just sue them for false advertisement.

While I was attending UEI I could say they switched my instructor like 6 times and out of those 6 only one was a great instructor and she is the only one I have to say thank you to. I graduated on the top 10% of my class and because of the reputation that UEI College has I am unable to get a job as a Medical Assistant. So I would tell others don't waste your time at UEI just go to Community College Because UEI has nothing but bills for you.

UEI is reaching new heights of shadiness as a for-profit college. Yes, I agree with all who say that you get in what you get out, but UEI is very deceptive, and it is finally catching up to them. For-profit trade schools like UEI are goverened by the Accrediting Commission of the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET). On May 4th, 2012, UEI received notice that due to poor program completion rates and poor job placement rates, that enrollment would be suspended for numerous programs, and limited for others at the Jacksonville, Morrow, and San Marcos campuses.

Can you believe that? The school is so bad they can't enroll new students! Google it to see for yourself. Also of note is the fact that the San Marcos dental program is not accredited, so even when completing the program, a graduate can not sit for the Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) exam. UEI doesn't tell you that, or that most jobs require an RDA license. You know those "apptitude" tests you take? They are actually tests to measure your "ability to benefit" from education which is a requirement for receving financial aid. UEI is not giving you career advice or taking your interests int account.

Your score on this "apptitude" test dictates which programs you can enroll in where they can get money. Want to be a computer tech, but your score qualifies for medical assistant? Guess which program you will have an "apptitude" for. This college does not have your best interests in mind. You pay $15,000 plus to get a low wage job. Go to a community college. Join in the military. Look into JobCorps in your local area. Just don't go to UEI.
