UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (220)
the people below me writing reviews... either you were absent too much, or your a horrible student. you seriously, get 100% hands on help & they walk you through the entire schooling. san marcos campus is very polite, nice and helpful.
professionalism is key and if you dont have it, your not going to make it through ANY school. dental students from uei are at a 98 % success rate. everyone who is just ranting about how bad the school is obviously didnt make the best of thier time here, if you are willing to go to school every single day with a bright face on then you will be more than likely to get hired right out of externship.
so i wouldnt listen to any of these low life students complaining about how they cant get an education, when they probably didnt even graduate high school. everyone you talk to or come into contact with is a huge help here.
To Anonymous post on January 07, 2011, yes one does have the opportunity to take advantage of the schools 7 day cancellation policy. However I love to rain on parades and it looks like storm weather for you. Let my first statement be that although, there maybe a cancellation policy 7 days is hardly enough time to gauge whether or not one is making a sound investment in ones future.
As for the judgments you have made they could be no further from the truth. Most students strive for perfection when put in a position of investing their hard earned dollar into their education.
This school has made an art of scamming students financially. As for the instructors one could not find a group less qualified. And yes one can learn from the book but students are not paying to learn from only a book if that were the case I would sit at home and just read. Not to mention for what we pay we should be afforded the best materials and learning aids possible especially if I am sinking $15,000 into my education. As for those who have posted before myself I am sure that their command of the English language is equal to that of your own.
In your narrow minded myopic rant I have managed to site many discrepancies with your own grammar and verbiage. So let those that have been cheated speak their discontent and find their peace by allowing them the opportunity be heard without your oppressive droll. In my parting thoughts UEI will find any and every way to cheat you out of your hard earned money as will as the education you deserve. It would also be of interest to everyone considering attending UEI. That the Department of Education (D.O.E.) is currently investigating multiple allegations of fraud.
I started my program in the Medical Assts. I am on my 3rd mod and love every day of it. From the get go, I started getting hands on. This was so important to me since I love to learn by being shown.
I would highly recommend this school to anyone. As my favorite admissions rep stated, it's an investment worth a lot. As a young mother it really didn't sink in till I had nothing left to give to my kids, though they see me on a daily basis getting ready for school and they would tell me how happy and proud they are.. People say on this site that this is a rip off, though they do not understand that no one force them to register. it was our own free will. My representative said from day one, I need to make a choice. Good advise from him was, I need to take control of my destiny.. Be the driver instead of a passenger.. As the driver, we control where we go. As a passenger, you are letting other people control you..
Thank you UEI San Bernardino, I can’t wait to walk across the stage and received my diploma.. Better yet, I am looking forward to my career.. who do? San berdoooooooo…
I dropped out after 4 months because of false promises, efforts to get me to graduate at all costs, and the myriad other complaints that students have when the For Profits gobble up your student loan money. I am rather curious about the terms of this website. You cannot leave a message to any of the posters.

if anybody is going to uei dont!!! its a scam they dont help you look for a job, and if you get hired from a job and you dont like the pay, they will blame you!!! so its best to not ask them for help they never have job leads everytime i go its the same !
problem oh were waiting to hear from the employer i know they dont like me so if anybody is looking to file a complaint i am in iam also contacting channel 11 news and contacting the b.b.b i took the pharmacy tech and graduated promised to be having a job and be succesful career... i got hired in a pharmacy they wanted to pay me 8.25 a hour are u crazzzy heck noooo! i have a loan i have to pay that is not enought! so i am tired and going to do something bout it!
..Everything was good. I loved my teacher, and graduated just fine. BUT.. After is when I started having problems. They didnt send what they needed to send to get me the things I needed so I can apply for jobs. I had to call continuously and no one ever responded
UEI....what can i say good about the school.
Nothing! It's a waste of your time and money. I attended back in 97 and i wish i would have just went to a regular community collage to get what i wanted. 7 days to decide if you want to do this? Not enough time. you should at least get two weeks. At first i liked it. but it wasn't challenging because i spent a lot of time in doctors offices i knew all the procedures and stuff. After i finished I got a nice job then i became really i'll and could not longer work. That student loan has cost me well over 20k and for what? UEI is over priced and really just a quick course.
This is medical people, you shouldn't want to get through a medical program in 8 months!. There are some success stories, but there are more horror stories. But my advice is to go to your local community collage, get a grant and have them pay you to be in class...lol
I am on my last module in the computer system technician program at the Chula Vista campus. This is one of the biggest regrets in my life. This school is a waste of time and money $15,000 dollars to be exact.
There is no hands on what so ever, the teachers are unprofessional and unqualified, they teach straight out of textbooks, the staff from education department don't really care about the students after you sign. This class is impossible to fail, you can even cheat on the weekly exams because all they want you to do is pass, because the school doesn't get that money unless you finish the eight months.
Several students have talked to the education department about the teaching ethics but no action is ever taken. They just say that we will investigate and I three months later it's still the same. So overall there is nothing positive about this school unless you don't have internet at home. You can pay 15,000 for eight months of free internet. I hope this helps people who thought of attending this campus. Don't do it.
In regards to the CST students post, I was a straight A student when I attended uei and the only thing I learned was that this school wasted my time and money. As for the 7 day policy, that is not enough time to make any kind of judgment. This school likes to lie to students and tell them that they make to much money and don't qualify for financial aid. They care more about attendance than whether or not the students learn. I've seen students missed day's every week and still pass the mod.I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy because they are that bad. I hope they get their accreditation pulled and they get shutdown. DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL OR BELIEVE WHAT THEY TELL YOU TAKE IT FROM ALL OF US WHO GOT SCREWED UEI IS AN EVIL CORPORATION!!!!!!
The school is great. I'm a CST student and I have had zero issues. If you study and do your work you will do fine. I am almost in my last mod and have had zero issues. The people on here crying are the ones in class who do nothing. You should have read the contract when you met your rep. You could have left after 7 days if you did not like it with no charge. I recommend this school to anyone who is willing to work for what they want out of life.
