One big joke - 9/9/2015
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015
"This school is one big joke in all honesty I got stuck at this school Kaplan is right down the street it is the same price but no money hungry people work there UEI is all about profit the teachers look like drugies my teacher singled out some of her students go to a community college or somewhere else...FYI I passed all my modules and got perfect attenance and honor roll with out being there 25% of the time my GPA was less than a 3.0 they award to make you happy don't believe any one there that says bad reviews are from the students who failed and got kicked out thats there excuse...my teacher stays on her phone texting away as we wait for her to finish her important msg to her daughter reassuring her that the pb is in the fridge Lujano is a joke as well as the school... I would not recommend this is place to my worst enemy... Please do not make the same mistake that I did DO NOT GO TO UEI unless you want huge amount of debt and time wasted"

"I got sucked in with their "Promises" and all I got was knowledge in a field that I can't even get my foot in the door not to mention they never gave me my certificate of completion or as they call it "Diploma". They don't help you with job searching and or placement once you complete the courses. They tell you what you want to hear to pull you into their little "Trap" and you end up getting screwed over with student loan debts and hassles. I wouldn't recommend this school to anybody since they don't help you like they say they will."

Happy Student - 8/23/2015
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015
"Before enrolling at UEI, I did some research and I was very hesitant to look further into it since I seen more bad reviews than good... but I took a chance & it was the best decision I have ever made! I've learned so much & the time flew by very quickly. Don't allow other peoples bad experiences discourage you from making your own choices. You just never know how much it could change your life by taking that chance."

"Worthless organization for profit it should be shutdown. The founders of UEI colleges have no sympathy for those enrolling in these schools with no future and with a loan to pay. Schools like these should be ignore especially for all ages it can affect lots of people after getting a worthless diploma . There should be something done about it especially now. To eliminate schools with no desire to help us . They are there for our money . We need to interfere to get rid of schools like these one. Worst experience they get you to sign papers and then after your doom so be aware the admission they work there to try to convince you its a school to attend. Its a joke because no one will notice your certificate or diploma. Go to community college. Go to a school where there's funds to take advantage for your education its our future. Not worth to attend schools with their desire to take your money. PLUS LOANS AWAITING FOR YOU TO PAY. Attended school there for 10-months not the best choice."

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2013
"This school lurs in people and promises a stable great, paying job that will better you for the future but instead all of it was a lie and I owe thousands with nothing to show for it. When I signed up tey told me that I would be making 12$ an hour to start and that I would be RDA certified to later find out that I could be making minimum wage and that I was not RDA certified only trained and I would have to pay over 200$ of my own money to take the RDA test and to rent the equipment I would need for the test (which to me is ridiculous because I'm paying a fortune already and my tution should be covering everything I need to succeed and because they toys me they would certify me) To be honest I'm not to sure how I graduated cuz I didn't get all my stuff done in time and the teacher forged her name to say I completed the course and because of that I'm not properly train in my field and which make it difficult for me to get a job because I was not certified correctly and I don't feel comfortable working in someones mouth. This school should be closed down and return my money."

"UEI is a fabulous college. Just like any other school, you get what you give. The ratings of 1 or 2 stars are most likely from people who not only didn't apply themselves, but did not take the job or interview seriously. I still have 6 weeks of school left and have already begun receiving job offers of 15-18 dollars an hour with absolutely no experience. If you are serious about changing your life and beginning a career, come to UEI, but only if you have what it takes to show potential employers that you're worth more than 9 dollars an hour. The instructors are beyond wonderful here as well as career services. They will do whatever they can to place you where you deserve to be placed. Prove you're worth 20 and hour and you'll get there. Otherwise, you'll be stuck at 9 since you couldn't prove you were worth more than that."

Imogen - 6/18/2015
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2014
"This was a massive waste of $18,300 and a year of my time. I graduated in 2014, and have been working for over a year at $9 an hour. I made more than that before. The company is a joke, and even with AAPC certification it is still nearly impossible to get a job in this field that pays what they promise you. When I went in I was assured I would START at $13 an hour, and make more from there. I am seriously considering going back to retail and throwing away the huge amount of money I have spent on this waste of time career."

"School is so expensive but my instructor was so helpful, test are harder, the school was clean and everyone was professional, they helped me find a job within 2 months after my externship, they were constantly updating my resume and sending it out, I have been at the job they helped me find for 2 years now, its not a bad school besides all the laons, I do wish I would've gone to a JC instead and saved me all the loans"
