UEI 2011

I completed the CphT program at UEI San Diego. My only regret in life was attending this school. I am still paying off the student loan. I have the same complaints , of my whole class only 4 are working in a Pharmacy, and 3 are retail, which is not worth the 10- 15grand. I am not one of the people working in a Pharmacy, I would have been able to work in the CVS which I did my externship, but I was not fluent in Spanish. As far as "job placement assistance" The counselor hleped put together my resume, and was given a list of pharmacies in the area, every place I contacted was not hiring, So there was no job placement assistance, and they were handing out the same information to any others in the program. Basically, I paid to go to school for Pharmacy, to work in Aerospace. I had to move out of S.D. as I could not find work. This School is a Scam!! The least they could do is close them all down, so that nobody else trying to make their lives better fall for this scam.
I also was a part of the Class Action Lawsuit, but was not notified of the decision / settlement as promised ( I still have the initial paperwork sent ) Now, I have been screwed twice. For anyone who decided to opt in to this suit, are we able to take part in another? I feel at the least, the student loans should be forgiven and paid for by the school, and anyone who has paid any of their loan should be reimbursed. Any information would be greatly appreciated. mklukas09@gmail.com

I got screwed...

So I went to UEI in 2013-2014 graduating at top of my class in the Computer System Technician course. UEI said that they will help me get a career within that field of study. I went into an extern which I found on my own, and once I was done with the extern I went o volunteer some time with the court house system and hospital system. At the end, I was not hired there at either place because they said UEI diploma is not a document or degree that they accept. So I spent another two years looking for employment in the field of computer technician (IT) work to none available of same circumstances of UEI degree not accepted. I paid all my monthly bills this whole time working as first a factory laborer then now in retail again. I went o UEI to get out of these types of jobs, but now I am forced to work these types of jobs because of the bills. I never once missed a payment to my school loans, neither Navient or Universal Guardian, but one day Universal Guardian disappears from its website and nowhere to be found, not even the phone number I used to have for them worked. So I called UEI and they told me that they will call me back when they figure out what happened to Universal Guardian. Fast forward to today now, my credit score is SHOT DOWN almost ONE HUNDRED points because I did not pay that loan. How in the world am I suppose to pay a loan that a company did not exists at all? UEI never gave me a call back at all about this. I was already unhappy with this whole situation but now, my credit that I worked so hard to build is screwed, I went from a 740 to a 622 overnight! This is some bologna and I want my voice to be heard because UEI could not give me a definitive answer to the loan and now I am screwed because it's in collections now. Let's sue this school for the criminal activities that they are practicing, this is borderline LOAN SHARKING.

UEI SCAM

Seems like the majority of us fall victims to this unfortunate circumstance. NOT ONLY with UEI, but with the recent law suit that took place as well. I was one of many involved in this recent Cordova v. UEI suit, that NEVER was even mailed a claim form. So unfortunatley i am now out of luck on even $1000 which was issued to others in this suit. The only notice i recieved was back in 2016 i believe, stating if i wanted to opt out of the lawsuit i would have to fill out the paper work and submit it back, but if i wanted to proceed then WE DO NOTHING, and we shall automatically be entered. Well go figure i never even recieved a claim form, or any other info regarding the status of the case. Until i spoke with my fellow classmate yesterday and she asked me if i recieved my compensation because she had already recieved it in December 2016. This is absurd!!!!!!!!! IF ANY OF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH THE SAME SITUATION AND ARE WILLING TO MOVE FOWARD WITH LEGAL PROCEEDINGS HERES MY EMAIL: Chargerette1984@gmail.com WE ALL NEED TO STICK TOGETHER AND GET OUR VOICES HEARD, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT RIGHT AT ALL.

Class action suit

All of you here who were all victims of UEI, Please go to court and type in Cordova vs UEI. They just won that Class Action Suit against UEI. I know the Lawfirm who can represent us . And if we won we will be able to provide and present it to the Department of Education. And might be able to be approved for the repayment defense. I just paid them $628 as they offered me 50%of the amount of the private loans thru them of $2515. I am ripped off by it as their transcript is not transferable at all! Here is my number if you all will contact me I could provide the Atty info. Thank you . mountaineer0411@gmail.com. Send me a message.

How do we sue them

I went to the Riverside campus back in 2013. I took the Pharmacy Tech program. They promised that they had a great job placement program. They didnt help me find a job. When I first started going there my car was stolen on right by the campus like 2 feet away and their security cameras didnt even work and the security guard was busy flirting with the students instead of watching the parking lot. Also my instructor was a racist and always spoke against Americans. She also tried to demotivate the students saying she dont understand why the students were so happy to be graduating from UEI its just UEI! I asked her a few times for tutoring but she went behind my back and said she dont see why I didnt get the math but it was actually because she rushed through it every time she did math problems on t he board. I had a couple of run ins with her and had to go to the Deans office. I had to change instructors and the time I had to go to school. I am now in debt because of them. How can we all go about suing them!!!!

uei = biggest mistake ever

I attended UEI in 2009 and completed the medical assistant program. I never received a formal diploma showing that the program was completed and I am still paying the loan back.
Many days that we can class, we didn't have all the materials necessary to practice injections or venipunctures. The instructor we had seemed very lazy, and so many kids in the class cheated and never got caught. Literally a month into the program, I knew i had made a major mistake and I couldn't go back and say never mind.
I completed the program with A's and B's , but felt like it was a joke, since people cheater their way through and got similar grades.
For the externship, I let the person that was supposed to "help" me know, that the place I was assigned is so unprofessional and a Dr is only there maybe twice a week, the lady let me know that it is too late to go elsewhere because theres other students that are finishing the program that need her help and that I will need to deal with it. So I did.
The CA state exam was never offered nor brought up by anyone, so I never took it. It has been the biggest regret I've had in my educational life, and it sucks that I am still paying for it after 7 years of completing this program. All that money paid to a program where the Instructor sucked and we didn't even have enough materials to complete tasks and learn what was needed.
gregory.veronika@yahoo.com is where you can contact me so I can receive my part of this settlement, this is absurd.

UEI College

Attended in 2014, I was miss lead to think this was a degree program. I realized a week later that it was not by the profesor who was mentioning the week trial. Whithin minutes i went to speak with the finance, front desk and a guy that was the dean of admissions. They woulnt let me withdraw after i explained to them the situation. The Rep. That i had seen told me thay she never said is was a degree. I was recommended to take the classes anyways since i was going to have to pay the loans. I didnt here from that rep again. They told me there was no proof that i was never told that it was a degree. Now im stuck with a certificate that employers dont take seriously, credits that are not transferable and student loans that i have to pay. .... i wish i could find someone that could lead ne in the direction where i dont have to pay the loans or sue.

UEI Campus

I went to UEI back in 2014 shortly after graduating from High School, so off the bat I had no clue what I was going to get myself into with me being so naive and not sure what college to pursue or to even go at all. Until I got a call from UEI asking me to check out there campus and I saw their programs was about 9 months so I thought "Great I can go to college and be done really quick and start a good job with my degree", but that was not the case at all. I took the CST (Computer Systems Technology) course and upon starting the classes we had only substitutes basically babysitting us and not getting us motivated in the class at all. Every word they would tell us with a smiling face was all lies to get our small class of about 7 people to stay past there week trial so we'd be locked into paying without hope of getting out. I questioned me being at this school that whole 1st week and thought so much about just leaving on the last day I could without having to owe anything. I went in asking to leave the school but the director said he wanted to speak to me before signing the papers. The same thing as before, a big smile that only spoke lies. Saying the course is being improved and that jobs would be widely available in Fresno around the time of my graduation. He used my age to say that I would be perfect for this course, I would get adapted to it and be able to get a great career. My parents were there with me encouraging me to leave as well but his speech stupidly persuaded me into giving the school a chance because I had literally no clue what to do with my life, no experience in anything, no motivation for traditional jobs that seemed impossible to get into unless you knew people. I took on the CST course blindly, feeling as if we weren't retaining any useful information from what our lazy substitutes would tell us to read from the books. Not only was the books really outdated on what we should have been learning but the basic dell computers we had to use in class were really slow and made the class seem to drag on more with feeling like we were all being scammed and the school seemed to only care about our attendance so they could make their money. I would never answer calls from the school because I was so irritated with how scammed I felt going there I would skip days but not too much to where I would still be able to pass each module. I tried avoiding the school as much as I could because it felt like a waste of my time in a small room with a bunch of older people, I just didn't feel right being there. Eventually we would get a teacher that would have another job somewhere else in the tech department that agreed we were being scammed, that the courses being taught would not help us in any job circumstance. One after one we went through teachers and substitutes that lost hope in the school and made me more stressed about how I would even be able to make any payments with me not having any income at all. I was lucky enough to have my aunt pay off my in-school payments of $3,000 but then I still would not know about how I could pay the rest of the loans off.. I feel like going to this school only made me full of anxiety and depression. I luckily got a job at the school I went to as kinda of the person to do their grunt work along with some other students working there too. But this just made any free time I used to have less and less being at the school I hated more often. The school only bragged about getting people to sign the papers to join, used all the bonus money they got to move the school to this ghetto mall called Manchester Mall in Fresno where they fit in like the fancy trash of a school they are. Towards the end we had an actual great teacher that worked for the county and then became out permanent teacher. He saw completely through the school and how they under pay the teachers and just leach off the students attendance, at one point my parents house phone was left with a terrible message where Melissa the counselor that got me to join left foul language in the voicemail saying I need to go to class. Leading up more to the point where they only care about attendance for their paychecks. This is a really terrible school and reading all the other stories that relate to mine make me feel so terrible and helpless, I don't want to owe money to a school that did nothing to help me what-so-ever, just waste my time and make me feel stupid for deciding to trust them. The internship I went to had to be one of the most mental challenges I attempted. I had to go into an office with a great store owner named Charles Farr, but not knowing anything at all about computers hands on. He questioned what I learned and I said I felt I learned nothing, the only way my grades were so good is because the class literally cheated every test with the teachers not caring. I would hate going to this place trying to get my hours in just to meet the quota to graduate. I hated seeing I was working for free and I would often go to the bathroom just to cry about my situation, I had no clue what to do and my parents couldn't help me either, I felt like a failure, I made the worst decision of my life that continues to haunt me leaving me in distress all the time. It's been a while since going here so I lost most connections with my class mates, I wanted to see if we could possibly start a lawsuit but I have no knowledge at all how to do any legal things and any attempt was a failure. I truly believe these schools are cancer to everyone that goes in with the benefit of the doubt believing they are really trying to help their students. I hated being here and often turned to drinking or smoking weed whenever I could just to handle going to this school. I have no clue how to better my situation and I'm doing my best to put off the payments until something can be done. Anyone that can help me in this situation, it would be much appreciated and I hope there's some way everyone that got stuck in debt at this school can find a way to fight back and gain back our sense of mind, not having to be so stressed and full of depression from this terrible school leaching at our money.

I went to UEI in 2000 and I was never helped in finding a job. I wasn't invited to graduation and I have yet to receive a formal Diploma. Every time I call UEI to get even a copy of the diploma I am given the run around. I also never knew about this lawsuit until literally last night when my friend told me about it. I don't want 1,000 dollars I want the 12,000 debt I owe for taking a student loan out to disappear. I can't even get a job as a Medical Assistant it's so unfair. Can someone please help, I mean can we start another lawsuit? If interested in helping pls email me adelossantos1213@gmail.com

How to Get Our Money Back

Hello,
I'm in the same boat, now I am in collections and having 15% of my paycheck from the board of education. I am wondering if any one has tried the UEI Loan Forgiveness website? Is this a scam? its asking for $100 now and $400 on Friday and the debt would be relieved. Sounds a little too good to be true, any advice?

Scam

Simpluris was a scam as well I believe they manipulated the claim forms and reduced the amount students were supposed to receive back... If you notice on your claim form it stated upon the final hearing everything will be finalized and all current information in regards to the case will be available on the website along with how many claims were submitted. After the hearing there has been nothing said... the worst thing we could have done was join that class action lawsuit. In the event you joined the class action we all just got screwed twice. #1 by UEI and secondly Simpluris.. will

UEI SETTLEMENT

I WAS JUST INFORMED TWO DAYS AGO BY A FRIEND THAT UEI WAS BEING SUED AND THAT THERE WAS A SETTLEMENT MADE, THAT EACH STUDENT WILL BE GIVEN $1,000 WHICH I PERSONALLY DONT BELIEVE IS ENOUGH FOR ALL THE LIES AND TROUBLE THEY CAUSED THROUGH OUT THE YEARS. I HAD NO IDEA THIS WAS GOING ON, ESPECIALLY FOR BEING A STUDENT THERE, I NEVER RECEIVED A LETTER IN THE MAIL OR AN EMAIL WHICH TO ME IS NOT FAIR. I WAS A STUDENT AT UEI BACK IN 2012 AND WAS IN ENROLLED IN THE MA PROGRAM. UEI HAD TO BE THE WORST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE IN MY LIFE. THAT WHOLE YEAR WAS A WASTE OF MY TIME AND MONEY. I AM NOW IN DEBT AND I AM NOT EVENING WORKING AS A MEDICAL ASSISTANT. ITS BEEN FOUR YEARS SINCE I COMPLETED THE PROGRAM AND I HAVE YET TO LAND A JOB AS A MEDICAL ASSISTANT. MY INSTRUCTOR WAS ALWAYS CHANGING AND EVERY INSTRUCTOR I HAD WAS VERY LAZY. THEY WOULD JUST SIT AND GIVE US WORK SHEETS TO WORK ON WHILE THEY PLAYED ON THEIR PHONES OR THEY WOULD PUT A MOVIE ON. THERE WAS NEVER ANY HANDS ON WORK, WHICH I BELIEVE IS WHY I CANT LAND AN M.A. JOB OR I GET DISCOURAGED TO APPLY FOR AN M.A. JOB BECAUSE A LOT OF THESE JOBS REQUIRE FOR YOU TO KNOW HOW TO DO BLOOD DRAWS AND INJECTIONS, ITS A MUST. I TRIED GETTING OUT OF THE CONTRACT A COUPLE OF TIMES, THE FIRST TIME WAS RIGHT IN THE BEGINNING, MAYBE TWO WEEKS IN AND I WAS TOLD THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD GET OUT OF MY CONTRACT, THEN AFTER COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW THE CLASS WAS BEING TAUGHT AND HOW THE INSTRUCTORS WERE LAZY AND NOT TEACHING US ANYTHING, AGAIN THEY SAID THEY COULDNT DO NOTHING. EVERYONE WAS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND RUDE AND I WAS SO OVER THE SCHOOL. AT THE TIME OF ATTENDING THE SCHOOL I WAS PREGNANT WITH MY DAUGHTER, RIGHT BEFORE GIVING BIRTH I HAD TWO MODS LEFT TO DO AND MY INTERNSHIP AND I WOULD COMPLETE WITH THE PROGRAM. BEFORE I GAVE BIRTH I SPOKE TO THE DIRECTOR AT THE SCHOOL ASKING THAT AFTER I GAVE BIRTH WOULD I BE ABLE TO COME BACK ASAP AND HE HAD PROMISED THAT WOULD BE ABLE TO COME BACK ASAP TO FINISH UP THE PROGRAM. AFTER A FEW DAYS OF HAVING MY DAUGHTER I WENT TO THE SCHOOL AND THEY SENT ME AWAY SAYING I WOULD HAVE TO WAIT TWO MONTHS TO COME BACK. I WAS VERY UPSET BECAUSE I WAS LIED TO AND THIS DELAYED MY TIME FROM FINISHING THE PROGRAM. AFTER THAT I WAS COMPLETELY DONE WITH THE SCHOOL. I FINISHED THE PROGRAM AND I DIDNT EVEN BOTHER GOING TO THE GRADUATION. UEI IS THE WORST SCHOOL EVER. IT WAS AND STILL IS NOTHING BUT A BIG SCAM. I WANT MY STUDENT LOAN FORGIVEN BECAUSE I FEEL I SHOULDNT HAVE TO PAY THOUSANDS BACK TO A SCHOOL THAT DIDNT DO NOTHING FOR ME. ALSO I WANT A SETTLEMENT FOR ALL THE TROUBLE AND STRESS THIS SCHOOL HAS CAUSED ME. WHOSE WITH ME?! EMAIL ME IF YOU BELIEVE UEI SHOULD PAY UP MORE THAN JUST $1000 PLUS FORGIVE EVERYONES STUDENT LOANS ??

Settlement not fair

I have gotten an email with a final settlement for all qualified class members.In the email the legal team states that each would get about $1,000. Yes, I did not omit a zero. Only one thousand dollars. I'm sure you all thing this is unfair and a slap in the face. That amount would if at all cover interest paid on the loan. I want to inform my classmates and all interested to voice you opinion and take legal action. Shall you need to contact me feel free to contact me: raul.torre dot.uct g mail. 213 663 .9121 i'm sure there is something to be done. I'm fed up with scams and will put an end to this.

UEI

I went to UEI for medical assistant nd 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 10,000 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 but at that time I delivery my baby girls I was just only 3 weeks that had a c section I gave birth I went to school to show them my disability letter that I will be back in 2 months to do my hours but they said no because my course will end and that is not going to count and I was are you serious I just had a ce section , the lady who was helping stated that it was ok nothing will happen to me that she would talk to the people where I will do my hours so I won't lifted any heavy stuffs and not to walk a lot and to have more breaks.. I was so piss and disappointed with them.. y 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 Sucks Big Time!!

Gosh where do I start, I attended UEI at the Huntington Park location back in 1998 and it was one of the worst mistake I ever made! I got stuck with a student loan that I just barely paid off this year and needless to say I never did get a job in Business Administration. I tried to get numerous jobs in that field but no one would give me a chance because me being young and foolish at the time, did not check up on the school to make sure that it was accredited, and because I had no experience in that field. Not to mention that the school never tried to help me find a job and I still haven't gotten any type certification from UEI saying that I passed the course till this day because at one point I fell behind in my student loan payments and they refused to give me anything! How in the hell did they expect me to pay back a loan when I didn't have a job!! I finally got on my feet eventually "NO THANKS TO THEM!" It took me 18 years to payoff that loan and boy was it a HUGE burden on me. I would love to see that school get what's coming to them! I warn everyone to beware that UEI is a SCAM and definitely not what they portray themselves to be. Don't make the same mistake I did STAY AWAY FROM THAT PLACE!!

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.
