UEI College San Marcos, CA is an amazing school. To start off the staff, the first people I met were the admissions group which were amazing, they are such nice people who are very welcoming especially A. S> who is leader of the admissions team. Then the next people i met were the front desk people , Which also has a welcoming feel to it, this is school is a team everyone works together to help one another in everyway possible. The team has helped me in more ways than just one, it helped me mature, prioritize, and get ready to start my life on the right foot. they work with you to help fit YOUR needs and do what they can to help. The school is very clean and always smells fresh thanks to our maintenance man, he keeps the place sparkling clean at all times the school is in tip top shape. Another great thing is that if a student doesnt like something, or is uncomfortable our campus president is always here to lend an ear, its always said that this is OUR school, and they are here for us whenever its needed. I would most definitely recommend this school to anyone who asked.
UEI college is probably the worst, if not the worst school ever! UEI college in Fresno has people working there who talk to their students like a piece of trash, rather than helping them. I would suggest if you are considering to attend a school like this think about it good before you regret wasting your money & time. I regret going there and I really try to prevent anybody experiencing what I did. UEI is a waist of time and half or even more of the people I had in my class don't have a job. Not because they didn't do we'll at school, or because there isn't none around them, but because the school SUCKS! And the people working there have no experience what so ever.
This was the worst financial decision of my life. As a single mother, I took this course in the hopes of providing a better life for me and my son. What it turned out to be was a huge financial liability that I will be paying for the rest of my life. My instructor, while knowledgeable and well established in the medical billing field, spent the majority of the instruction time talking about her family, focusing her attention on a married man who did not return her affections, allowed her "favorite" students to get away with anything and everything in class and would rather read what was on the overhead projector than actually teach what we really needed to make a career in this field. Personally, she felt threatened by me and used her relationship with others to wage a damaging campaign against me. The last two months of my time in her classroom were tough; no one would speak to me and she did not help in my transition to the real world. In short, I learned basically nothing in her class and three years later have not found a job in the medical billing and coding profession. The placement staff at UEI college is a huge joke. They are unprepared and have no real leads on where to place their graduating students. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL; YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY
They sucker you in with the promise of opportunity and bettering your life. In reality they do nothing that they advertise, your left with a huge student loan, and they fail to give job placement. I wish I had never gone to this school I would've saved myself so much time, money, and aggrivation. They fail to tell you that no one will hire you without at minimum a year worth of experience and being bilingual is usually preferred. Don't waste your time.
These people are a rip off..allyou will have is a loan to pay back with no job..the alumni coordinator is horrible..unhelpful and has the worst attitude..they are not concerned at all with helping you find a job. I feel like suing the school..their commercials are LIES!!!!!
I find it interesting to see the reviews are either 5 stars across or 1 or 2 stars at most. Obviously, UEI has been working extra hard to keep their name in good standing and why not? That's their meal ticket- tricking people into signing up and spending massive loans on their fraudulent scheme. This is what happens when MBAs sit around a campfire and figure out how to come up with the next get rich quick scheme- only at the expense of students. It's sad, it really is that they are even allowed to operate but they have figured out how to scam the system. There is in a fact a class action lawsuit and we all know those happen because everything is peachy fine at UEI, right? The 5 star reviewers are just more UEI employees. The worst experience of my life. Even the BBB is grading them A-, A, A+,. San Diego office location. Complain complain complain complain, until someone listens. Write letters to attorney general, your local congressman, the BBB don't give up hope until the crooks are forced to close their doors and find real work.
Tell tell a lot of lies. I am stuck with a student loan and no job. These people are great use car salesmen.Don't go there.
TOOK ME ONLY ONE DAY TO REALIZE THE ENVIRONMENT IN MY CLASSROOM,FELT LIKE IF I WAS STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL.THE INSTRUCTOR REAL NICE KNOWS HIS JOB REAL WELL,JUST NOT THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT AND HE'LL MAKE REAL EASY TEST AND NOTES. YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT THE REPRESENTATIVES KNOW HOW TO SWEET TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE SCHOOL. SO MY 2nd DAY I DIDN'T GO BACK NO MORE AND TALKED TO A REP FROM THE UEI OFFICE AND TOLD HIM ABOUT QUITTING,WE TALKED ABOUT THE REASON WHY.THEN HE WAS LIKE OK ILL TELL THE LADYS AT THE FRONT DESK TO CHECK YOU OUT? DID THEY ACTUALLY CANCEL MY FINANCIAL AID, BKUZ A WEEK LATER I GET LIKE PAPER ABOUT TUITION THAT I HAVE TO PAY A MONTH,LIKE IF I WAS STILL ASSISTING?!
To those who are interested in the pharmacy technician program. It doesn't matter where you get your education from you will still get hired whether it be at community college or "UEI" your presence and your abilities will be the factors. Now, if you are a person that has a lot of aptitude I say just skip going to school and just buy an exam book to become certified. Yes, that's right! You don't have to pay thousands of dollars to be a National Certified Pharmacy Technician. In fact the most UEI can give you is a state license. It won't matter where you will apply to. Most employers will be looking after experience, knowledge and PTCB Certified (Nationally certified). Hospitals, closed door, or even retail could care less where you went to school but being PTCB certified will bump you above the rest as been told repetitively during class and from other pharmacy technicians during externship. Most practical things you will learn at work will more than likely be trained at where you're employed at. The only thing UEI will offer is teaching you about typical things like drugs, calculations and pharmacy procedures which can be easily learned online. During my externship I had a small training course to learn about the system they were using and how be part of the workflow that had nothing to do with what I learned at UEI. Even if there may be success stories it still ends up being "up to you" so with that kind of attitude regardless if you pay less at community college or bought a book on getting certified at least you didn't risk wasting money or picking up a loan. There's plenty of ways to get an education. Always research and spend wisely. I sure didn't it and it's one of my deepest regrets. p.s. One thing is for sure, they sugar coat everything to get students. They like to sweet talk to applicants and lie just to get students signed into a classroom.
Not only did the school fail at helping myself and other students gain employment, they never even followed up. I do not have a job in the medical field and have never been given any help from the school or it's counselors in finding one. I have been left with over 15,000 in federal loans due to UEI, of which I cannot pay and continually destroys my credit and finances. For the cost, this school is a complete and total failure to its students and should not even be in operation. I will have these loans controlling my month to month stability for many, many years to come and could not possibly regret choosing to go there more. I was very young when I initially went to visit the campus and on that visit they convinced me to enroll and actually put me into the federal loans that day, without the advice of an adult in my family. They are irresponsible and money hungry, destroying the lives of many young hopeful students. Shame on UEI - they should be paying us for the awful education they gave and the unending debt we have to pay off.
