Uei

I went to uei back in 2014 that year was a wasted year of my life for i attended uei, i was fresh out of high school looking to get a quick career I attended the school only missing two days and keept a good grade passing test and always had homework done everything was good until I had to do my externship UEI got me a interview so I could do my externship there but when I got to the interview I noticed the doctor had several UEI students with the scrubs on from UEI that were most likely working for him for free, UEI had a connection with that doctor who would get those students from UEI so they could work for that doctor free only to be let go since they are inexperienced in the field of work, and since I was the same inexperienced, that doctor that UEI supposedly helped me get a interview to never gave me a call back to know if I would externship there instead I got a call from UEI saying I was not dressed well at the interview they said I quote "you did not have dress shoes on" which was a lie since I did go dressed up from head to toe with dress shirt dress shoes even dress pants, but UEI suggested I try on my own to look for a place that would let me do my externship, i managed to get my own externship on my own with no help of UEi and I completed the externship and managed to pay the $30 for my graduation cap and graduate receiving my diploma and several recognitions for grades.... But after already having all knowledge of what I learned at UEi, and with the diploma I never got a hired, I printed out resumes and cover letters and personaly dropped them off to several locations in my area and applying online and even searching was something I mostly did after graduating I know for a fact I searched more for something then UEi did at the end guess that's the way it is, and now Its been several years and I received a letter saying that there is a settlement UEi will pay for student who have attended and will be paid after October the letter says I will receive $10,000 which is not enough I should receive at least $100,000 for the wasted time I spent learning something I will never practice for they used false advertising with there TV commercials that promised having a career that was supposedly growing but really was not, I have a debt that I have not been able to pay to this date so if I receive $10,000 for the claim they made against UEi, those $10,000 will still not cover my debt, I don't know if I should sign the settlement claim form or should I look into this settlement, if someone can help me email me at its1andonly@gmail.com

Horrible Experience

This is a terrible "school". I went to try and better myself and get a good job. I took the Medical Assistant course hoping that would be a stepping stone towards working in the healthcare industry and continuing my education into nursing. They require a certain amount of hours in an externship, which they say they will assist you in finding and depending on the externship and how well you do there they say a lot of people get hired from their externship. The "career advisors" didn't even keep any of their appointments with me to help me look, I had to call around and find my own from a list that was given to me from a fellow student (sucker) who got that list from their friend (sucker) who got that list from a "career advisor". The place I ended up going to didn't even have MA's in their office and I was very limited to what I could do. They just kept accepting the Externs (suckers) because they wanted free labor to do the grunt and tedious work that the nurses and clerical staff didn't want to do. My last day, they had already accepted their next extern (sucker) to start the following day and were showing her around. After "graduation" (I couldn't go because I couldn't afford the cap and gown that was not included in the loans). I kept calling and leaving messages with the "career advisors" because they said if the externship didn't work out they would help you to job search and help with networking and use their contacts to help with a job. I kept running into I don't have experience while looking on my own. I called about once a week for months after I finished the program (which I had a 98.98% for based off homework, test scores, and attendance. It would have been 100% except I had to miss a day because I got a bad stomach virus, I was dehydrated, had an ear infection, and had a bad allergic reaction to antibiotics for the infection. I missed the "class", but came in to take the final after they released me and still got 100 on the final but was docked for missing class). I spoke with 10+ "career advisors" (I have all their business cards still...) and I had no job and no car and they still made me come down to the school to sit and listen to every single one of them tell me how my resume was incorrect and how it was bad, eve though the person I spoke to before them changed it. Then they said they would network and get back to me, which they never did. One guy even called me and said he couldn't help me anymore because his supervisor told him he was only supposed to be assisting the new students (suckers) and not helping "graduates". I had to keep deferring the loans because I couldn't find a job and I ended up getting a part time job at a local theme park that had nothing to do with any of the "education" I received and worked extremely hard to get the highest score I could. It's been 5 years now and I have a decent job that I worked hard for, not in the medical field, and I still really can't afford payments and cost of living. Our entire tax return was taken this year too. Now I'm afraid to go back to school because of what this place said they would do for me and all they did for me was leave me with a giant debt. The facility I went to doesn't even exist anymore... I feel bad for all the people I occasionally see in the UEI scrubs who are trying to better their lives and have been duped by this wretched place.

Don't go there

I went to UEI in 2014-15 for HVAC and they did not teach us anything nor did we go to lab. I was told that they would help me find a job. They promised me that they would help me and they told me that while going to school they would help me with a job. They made all these promises to get me into the school and they duped me. I was not taught anything but I have a mound of loans that I have to pay. They did not want to give me my tax form and my wife had to handle them about that. This school just wants your money and leaves you struggling or worse.

dental assistant

I went to uei college for dental assistant. Everything was going good but when i was almost done they told me i had to stop working for i could complete extern. If i didn't do my extern on time it was like i never went to school and they would need to drop me. I'm a single mother of two boys i had to stop working and moved back to my parents. I couldn't afford daycare or make school payments. I found my extern sites closer to home. because the school tried to give me a location that was to far. again no job no money and single mother of 2. Even tho i finished extern on time and school. I didnt get my certifications of completion because i was not up to date with my payments. Till this day they haven't helped me get a job. i looked for jobs on my own again but because i don't have my credentials of completion and certified paperwork. I cant get a job. I'm really upset and disappointed. I called and request copies and they said no. i needed to be current( paid off ). How do they expect you to make payments if they tell you to stop working to do extern 170hours . And now I'm trying to get a job in the field that i went to shool for and have a career.

I want my money back

I went to UEI for medical billing in 2010 and the only reason I decided to go was because they said they guaranteed a job and an externship ... It was the worst mistake of my life !! The cost was around 9,000. I feel like all I payed for was my books and bavkpach which should be less than 9,000. When they found me an externship it had nothing to do with medical billing .. I was like -_- are you serious??? Luckily my externship was at a hospital and I looked around and asked if there were any billers I could speak to and made friends with one of them and she had her manager arange something where I can shadow her every once in a while .. Then after the externship was over, Uei did not help me find a job. They asked for my resume to "send it out" but I never got anything.. What's the point of paying for this if I can just send out my resume myself then. I've payed my loan on and off with jobs I have gotten myself but I don't feel like I should pay anymore. I feel like I should get my money back. They stole my money. It's already hard paying monthly bills. But this, I feel like I'm just giving my money away

UEI worst mistake ever

I attended UEI college in 2014 they promised they would get me a job to help me pay for this school . I went here because in mid july there was no way of getting into a community college and I needed to get to school after so many phone calls I decided to check this school out a representative helped me right away brainwashed me about how great this school was . So I joined and they said we can help u with loans and u can pay them back because we promise to help you find a good job. They lied I have been going to there campus many times and they don not ever give me a call back with job information. I am now jobless with a 18k debt and interests keep going up every month. The financial department also lied about the interest rates they shamelessly lied right in my face assuring me if I got a deferment extension there we be absolutely no interest only know I looked at it personally and find out its an extra 22$ per month that I don't have . This school is ridiculous !! I want to file a lawsuit

medical assistant

Hi i want to get a refund back because they didn't give me my diploma to me. I went to the school to pay off what ever that I owe. This lady said all I need to pay is for the graduation and that's it. So I said okay
. I graduate in 2012 and they told me to wait a day to get my diploma. So I did and they send me a note saying I owe them money. And I was like wait I ask the lady is that all I owe before I graduate and she said yes. I call the school lots of time and no answer. I couldn't get my diploma I couldn't work at all. And they promise to help me get a job but never happen. I mean I spent a lot of money for what. the teacher don't do nothing but laugh with the student. Sometimes we get a different person to teach us.This college just want money they promise us to help us and get a diploma but no they don't do nothing that's why these schools are shutting down. And now I have a loan to pay off for what I didn't get my diploma. They are scamming us.I want to sue

UEI gives you nothing but fake promises its time for them to take full responsibility for what they are doing to us!!!

When I went to check out the UEI campus in Riverside, I was promised to be in a class with knowledgable teachers and told me I would learn so much. The teacher I got in the Business Administration course Mr. Gonzales was a lazy and horrible teacher. The whole class would always complaint so we decided that one of my classmates and I were going to go file a complaint with the director Mr. Latimer. We were completely ignored. so a few weeks ago the whole class and I decided not to go to school for a day....By 8:20am when they saw the class was empty they were blowing up our phones ....they investigated our teacher and he finally got fired. The problem now is we only have to 3 more modules to complete and still not know a thing so I want a full refund!!!!...We now have a diferent teacher almost everyday and We just feel so lost in this class. feeling depressed and disapointed smh.....who ever wants to join a lawsuit e-mail me at mwarrior0816@gmail.com

worst mistake of my life

I was homeless at the time my friend had just told me about UEI & i just wanted to get my life back and have something to look forward to in my life. I found a friend who would let me stay with them I went to them. I went to the school I felt like they where pushing me into it. But they where right I had nothing at the time I was just a hopeless kid who was trying to do something my teacher was amazing she did every thing she could, but I think deep down she know not all of us where going to get a job. She would drop little hints here and there. I finally finished turned in all my papers and even walked the stage. It's been 5 months since Graduation I fell behind very hard on my student loans and my bills. I decided to call the Board of Pharmacy only to find out they never received any of my information. that I've been waiting for 5 months for nothing, digging myself into a hole of debt that I don't think I can come out of. I can't even get a Jon in my file cuz they never sent my information. They very rube and organized. every time I called them I have to call them multiple times just to get a hold of them and then I end up arguing with them and they always tell me the same thing I can't talk to you like this call me back tomorrow only to call back for the not answer... all I wanted was to make it on my own

UEI

I attended UEI College in 2009 I have outstanding student loans that I can not pay. I never got a job as a Certified Medical Assistant as the school promised upon signing up. I also know several classmates that are stuck in the same situation. This school is miss leading and leaves you lost in the world hopeing for a better future and leaves you oweing money you can not re pay and job less.

UEI=ZOO

My Daughter signed up after graduation from High School in Jan 2015,
With promises of a bright future she has an instructor who has been a negative Nellie from the very first night... Saying how when in iffice situation there will be gossip and mean people in every office you work at. This May or May not be true, and least of all it did not need to be started out the first night of school... This instructor should not be teaching...she has had many jobs she tells but always leaves due to not getting along.
The school moved to a new campus and still runs short on supplies...my daughter is now 18 was working full time as well as going to her MA program and just recently went to 3 days a week work schedule... Starts externship week after next still no site found. They told her it would be best to find her own site! Also she has been in several times to have her payments lowered or deferred and they say she CAN'T!
Yet many students got in to school free or for very low payments.
If my daughter had a kid it would not have cost her much of anything!
My husband and I have been seperated for 4 yrs and now he has a terminal lung disease and had to sell his business, he claims my daughter his step daughter and this causes her not to qualify for any loan programs. I have been a care giver to him and he only give me 800.00 a month so at this time I can't even hardly make ends meet to help out my daughter! They won't let her go to her site until her next payment is made! There is much more that can be said but I will wait to speak to someone!

What a scam of a school. I cosigned for my daughter for a loan. The school promised to find her a job but never happen. Now she is stuck with the loan and i am stuck with the parent loan. We defer payment but the interest keeps growing. I nor my daughter can afford to pay it back. I would never recommend any type of school like that. You are better off going to community college. Would definitely like to join a class action suit.

Worse school ever

I attended a school who isn't accredited school and promise assist with job search upon graduation, the jobs I applied for in the area of expertise will not accept my certificate because the school is not accredited. The school has discontinued their Medical Assistant program in which I enrolled as will as all other programs (dental, medical billing & coding, massage therapy except for business administration) and the also changed their name to UEI. Now I'm force to pay a student loan back from a school who breached their contract. I live in Jacksonville Florida and attend the school in 2009 , yes I would love to help file a case action against the school and all I'm asking in return is student loan forgiveness and have it removed from my credit.

they said this school would prep me for a better/brighter future...yet I have a diploma that is not worth 20k. I would love to have my money back ASAP because they should close this school down. They enroll anybody and even people with high school diplomas or GED's. They ruined my life with debt at such a young age. I want to fight to get my money back! They are a scam! I wish I would have NEVER went to the UEI. I don't know why they are still open! I'm so unsatisfied with the turn out and I will do my best to be as vocal as possible! The financial aid people tweaked the system just to get me in even when I said no! They still insisted! Oh and one more thing the woman who enrolled me got fired like 2 days after I started! What a couinscidence right!
