Hijinio Herrera - 5/20/2019
Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2012
"I am talking about UEI college in San Marcos Ca. This school is not good at all. At first everyone was so nice and wanted to help you with the process, but once you signed the papers it was a very different situation, the person assigned to you was not even responding to your calls or texts. Then the teacher that was doing the course was inexperience asking us how we would like him to do things, later when i graduated i was looking for jobs on craiglist and i usually saw UEI looking for teachers. Then after i started the payments for my tuition were coming in and i wasnt even graduated yet, they will call every student that was behind on payments to the office and ask why we couldnt start paying. Then after i graduated they were supposed to help me find a job, they did it for 1 or 2 months and then they wouldnt even call me to see how was doing, after months to been graduated i realized the huge mistake i did, i still in debt with the loans, i havent pay them. Please do not fall for this, you can go take A+ classes or networking classes to an adult school and get pass the Comptia tests and become a tech without the 15000 dollar debt."

Savannah - 3/21/2019
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019
"This is the most unprofessional school Ive ever attended... The comments are right they only want your money... The teachers wants to befriend the student. The school, also lacks diversity... I felt like I was in high school all over again... The teachers pass the students they like... You are not supposed to miss a certain amount of days but yet Ive witnessed students leave come back and dont have to repeat the class!!! They really should fire the WHOLE staff and get people in the building that is building the name... Not to mention, their extent rates are horrible... They send students out that dont even have knowledge to the basics of their program.. Oh yea over half of the staff is not good teachers anyway!!!!"

"Don't waste your money on this school. This is not real college. They just use that word on the school name so they can charge more. This is a tech school or vocational learning. Whatever they teach you, you can learned it better in a community college and for cheaper price. The diploma you get is worthless. It's not even a degree. You get like 8 different teachers every month. I don't know why this schools don't get shutdown."

",MONEY DRIVEN, lies about loan, loans will change at the end then they'll hold your diploma, you will be put out of school if they don't get the money, went months without supplies like blood pressure cuffs, went months without needles, went months without a qualified teacher, corporate is rude! Employees know is a scam school, they say they're helping but are not. One lady was sleeping in the parking lot with her baby and the school still wanted her money. If I had it any different way I would RUN!"

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2018
"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"

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2010
"Misinformed teachers. Took our class to a museum funded by the Church of Scientology. Offers false promises, wasted $16 grand on this poor excuse of a school. Could have got same certificate and better education for $900 at a community college. Don't make the same mistake I did. Do the research before they manipulate you onto enrolling"

Degree: Medical Assistant

"I just finished the medical assistant program, my teachers were very nice and helpful and so were my classmates. They said they would help me find a job, I haven't found one yet. I did learn a lot and I was able to actually learn things that I will need to do in my field which is amazing. Thank you UEI."

Someone take down this school - 10/19/2018
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017
"Don't get hopes from the commercials don't walk in don't sign any of the papers that immediately pays these scam artists. It is a worthless degree it's a for profit school and ask around we got screwed. Go to a real college and invest the time. They don't care if you didn't learn anything or if you can't find a job after the fact they milked you for your money a few hours after we signed the contracts and we were old news then. They'll get there's with the huge smile and motivational crap that ain't worth anymore then the degree they offer."

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2010
"HORRIBLE!! They took my money, put me in an internship that didn't remotely pertain to my degree. Job placement the worst. Everyplace they showed me I had already looked into myself on line. They gave no guidance. I graduated with a 4.0 and could't find a job. I enrolled because you could get in without a diploma. They failed to mention you needed 1 to get certified. I got my GED and my certificate, and still no hire. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. Now I am stuck with thousands of $$ in student loans for nothing."
