N/A - 5/8/2015
Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2014
"No guidance just nothing to do besides getting you sign smart of them not worth the time just go to community college get your degree problem solve and no loans to worried about after . Its a profit school investors look forward into it. The college attended was okay but not much to get from just one month for a subject then cut to chase another one not please.Degree Business of Administration was not worth it is not specified anyone may obtain a same degree some where less productive community college. A loan is not easy to get off your back it takes two to three years to pay one for school then the private loan."

The Trueth - 4/28/2015
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2012
"ATTENTION. If you are looking to get a worthless diploma, UEI is the place to go. All they care about is your money. They lost their medical assisting program for 2 years because they couldn't find jobs for the graduates. The only reason they are still open is because they hired their own students so they can say they placed them.. once the 90 days were up, they laid all their own graduates off. How low can you go. I still don't have a job and no one returns my calls because they did not have a person that works with medical assistants because they lost the program for 2 years..Be ware. Hopefully you can handle the trueth..."

Bad school/stay away - 4/27/2015
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2011
"I was not happy with the school because I was not give any job search assistance. The school basically tells you anything you want to hear just to get you enrolled. No help at all, go to a JC. The classes will be less expensive and you won't have to take out a student loan for thousands of dollars."

Horrible scho - 4/27/2015
Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2003
"I went to this school when it was MCED by the airport. One instructor sucked didn't teach much played on computer. I didn't feel I learned much especially when I got a job. I was several thousands of dollars in debt upon graduating. That job didn't last long. now, the school is playing games with me. I requested my transcripts a few times and faxed them my info. I waited two weeks for them and called them. They put me hold and hung up on me. I called back they took my info and said they would get back to me. I doubt it... need to take legal action."

Joe E - 4/7/2015
Degree: Network Administration
Graduation Year: 1999
"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."

Stephanie - 4/6/2015
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"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..."

Riverside Dental Assistant Student - 3/26/2015
Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."
