UEI College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (220)
When I first enrolled at the school I was skeptical about it but it was new to me n the program was new to the campus after a while it kind of grew on me yes there was things about it that I didn't like but it was an overall good experience for me...
Stay away! It's cheaper to take classes at a JC, or learn on your own. I was passing all of my classes at a high percentage, but when it came time to take tests which came along with interview process at some entry level jobs at consulting and tech firms I felt humiliated. What I learned at UEI was buzzwords, nothing with depth. I think you are more likely to get a job learning on your own than relying on getting a job on what they teach you. UEI is a sham, I took a loan on a school that was a complete waste of my time. Luckily I was able to get a job later a few months after graduated, but I didn't event start getting call backs again until I removed UEI from my resume and just kept the community college I started attending.
Great school go..... proffessional training great instructors never been happier, you get two breaks per class the staff is courteous more hands on help because were not as crowded as a cc and the credits transfer how much more do you need come here get certified and work now.
I wouldn't recommend this school for nothing in the world. They are not professionals as they don't have a degree to work there (some), they mostly work for commissions. All they care about is your money, and they don't care if you end up with a $20,000 debt. They now have a bad reputation and the certificate you get from this school is not useful at all. Luckily I dropped out before start because I asked a bunch of questions that they didn't know how to answer. This is how they brainwash you, "Education is very important Now all jobs require you to have an education..." blah, blah, blah with their sweet little tone trying to convince you. Please do your research before going there...
I am currently attending UEI College for a Dental Assisting Program. I do agree it is expensive, and I wish I would have been told there was a grace period to drop out; not because I don't like it there, but I may have chosen a different program. One of the reasons I chose this school over others is because I was told it was 8 months long... I started in December and will not be finished until SEPTEMBER (10 months), THEN I will have to do extern (170 hours). I had the idea that the 7 modules were each one month, then the 8th module (extern) was about 1 month (depending on how you utilize my time) As someone else has mentioned, they often run out of supplies and equipment is broken. I've recently finished my x-ray module and was unable to practice with digital x-rays because the machine has been broken the ENTIRE TIME! Digital x-rays are what are mainly used in the dental office. All whining aside, I've learned a lot here so far. And I enjoy both lecture and lab. I have a 4.0 and plan to hand in my student ambassador letter soon. I will write more once I have finished here.
This school is a joke ! You're better off going to a community college for more than half the price. They say they help you find a career when in all reality all they do is put your resume on career builder. I invested so much time and money into a piece of crap school and it was all for nothing ! Since this school has such bad reviews it's hard to find a job when employer's have a bad image in their head about the school you attended. And if you try and drop out you still have to pay back all your loans. Don't do what I did and attend this horrible place they call a career building school. It's just the worst. I dont have words for how bad this school is.
I attended UEI back when it used to be ANTHEM college. I am warning everyone who is even considering coming to this school PLEASE DONT! They will rob you blind and fill you with empty promises. I have been out of school for months with no job and THOUSANDS in debt. I have had to resort to pawning my own things for my tuiton all because I put all my faith in this school. There is no job and there is no help. All they do is put your resume up on careerbuilder and leave you to drown in your monthly bills. Please. Learn from my BIG mistake. Do not come here.
UEI College Fresno Has Been A Great Help So Far . My Teacher Is Wonderful And Helps A Lot. Even The School In General Are Renting Rooms At Some Places So You Can Be Closer And Waste Less Gas If You Live Outta Town, Yes It Has Its Flaws But What Matters Is That We Have The Supplies We Need And The Education We're Paying For.So Far Its All Worth It Because Im Learning Everything I Need To Know And Im Ready To Be Out On Extern In 2 Months. Not Everybody Will Give A Positive Review For Any School. The Administraters Actually Show They Care For You When They See Your Putting Effort In Your Education.
I understand where many of the people are coming from the school seems like a scam. The person I talked to said this school was great and I was going to be out quick ... I could have gone to city college and take the course there and I would be out in the same amount of time. The class is always running out of supplies. Some of the instructors are rude and harass the students. I personally get harassed by my instructor and I told her boss and all that was said to me was that's just the way she is. The school is also in shambles and unsanitary. There are rodents in the ceiling and there are many roaches at the school.
Career colleges tend to be hack/scam schools. They tend not to be accredited, say you go out of state the cetificate/diploma is near useless. The program I was signed in would take about 8 months to complete for the cost of $16,000+ usd Anyone can do that in a community college for less or no cost, given you keep your grades up to qualify for scholars and/or FAFSA (financial aide). This scam school is only good at putting most students in debt. If you're lucky to get a job it'll still be minimum. I was at the San Marcos, CA location, both enrollment officer and instructor were very rude. I 'm relived I happened to cancel a day before my "trial" period ended, the enrollment officer was upset and belittling me when I showed up to his office with the signed paper of cancellation.
