"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."

"I would not recommend this college to anyone. Falls goals. They don't help you find a career and when wanting to know about your certificate No one returns your calls. Yet they are strict I'm their payments. Advice go to a college where you can get your associates."

Degree: Legal Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"I see a lot of people putting this school on blast for something that they perceived to be wrong. All I know is that this school helped me and husband in ways I didn't know it could. I see all my classmates doing dumb things everyday that just make me wonder about them. They talk when the instructor is teaching, they're rude to staff, and they constantly ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions about the material we just covered. Why pay $20k+ for an education that you don't want to work for? If you go to UEI, you need to come ready and willing. You chose to be here so suck it up buttercup and put on your big girl panties because you're in for a ride."

Degree: Medical Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"School sucks, your paying 20k for a certificate. I started in medical office specialist and books weren't available until the next week. I got honor roll all mods and perfect attendance. they put too many rules and are way too strict. They tell u to settle down on makeup and no acrylic nails. Girls are way too catty and rude. too much drama in this school."

disgruntled student - 1/11/2016
Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2015
"UEI Fresno was a joke. If you feel uneasy about applying then don't do it. This school is in an abandoned mall for a reason. The staff is very rude but they do try and help as much as they can. Unfortunately that is just because they don't want to lose their accreditation. If you have a personal problem they don't care, I actually had one staff member laugh at me for crying. Honestly, they harass me everyday since I dropped out because of the unprofessionalism of the staff. This school says so much about how they are professional but I have yet to meet anyone who is! I kept a 4.0 in this school and I still wasn't respected. Career services is horrible. Financial aid is AWFUL."

"Well first of all UEI is a good college to me located in Gardena I recommend you to take a chance ignore other people negative opinion to me is bs, yeah BS Because I gain some knowledge, im learning well my instructor is not lazy boring or stupid he doesnt be on his phone all day long he be next to us helping us out in the shop and that Mr. Perez he's intelligent and honest. He will teach you what you really going to do in the real world, and since I started this school i dont regret a single thing made some new friends learn as much as i could oh yeah and you will get a job sinnclair is the man I dont really know him like that but he will and that a promise even if you grad from UEI you could still ask him and he will be gladly to help you out to find you a job. But yeah the school is not perfect but is okay. Ps im not really good in my grammar lol"

"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."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015
"I really enjoyed the school but if you don't have a job already you be out of luck after you graduate. It took me 3 months on my own no help from them to get me 3 part time jobs not in the field I got my diploma in. I did learn a lot but the school only helped me get my internship and the person I did my internship with said I wasn't a good fit for the company. Go and get your AA degree don't waste your time or money here."
