    @Greed! How can we got about getting this into play. I went to this school in Jacksonville, FL I recruited many friends to go with me. They robbed all of us of our time and money. I didn't even get my graduation certificate for medical assisting. Plus I'm in debt with this school making me scared to even attend any other school.

    After 10+ years that I graduated from this school, and paying 15K worth of education, I find myself forced to need their assistance obtaining transcripts for college. I've been emailing them, calling and paid $75 and all I get is ignored by the person who handles transcripts.

    The funny part is that I called so much that now they revise their voice mail and make it easier to leave messages that no one will ever return. I about to reach out to a lawyer because I feel this school loves playing with students emotions, and this is starting to cost me stress. Does anyone have a recommendation to a lawyer with UEI experience before?

    I love how UEIGEEK, is obviously someone who work for UEI. That school is a scam. I had the computer technician class. We were being taught nothing. They literally had us copy everything from a book. Our teacher, Gerry Fisher, would literally spend most of the day talking about life, and joking around. We learned nothing valuable, or viable. Everything was outdated. I want to take this to court. If anyone had a class with him in [protected].. Chula Vista, Ca. Please contact me at [email protected]

I took the business administrative program I paid 14 k so they can teach me how to use Microsoft programs and other things I had learned in high school

    I am a student graduate of 2009 for UEI College. I decided to take the CST - Computer Systems Technician program without realizing the consequences for that action which ended up being the worse mistake of my life. First of all, the certificate I got for graduating is worth LESS than a certification from CompTIA A+. I spend 9 months studying and preparing for a certificate and I'm not qualified to work in the IT field unless I am certified. They could have just told me save your 10k plus $ and study for the CompTIA A+. I wish someone would have told me that. Basically created something out of their [censored] and put a price tag on it. Useless certificate and a debt that follows you for life. Put that on a TV screen why don't you.

    i recently just enrolled in UEI and am only in my second mod in the medical billing. I am so regretting enrolling in this school. They are nothing but money hungry bullies. There has to be some way to go about this the correct way so I will not be in debt and they will not once again Rob a hopeless bank that has no money to begin with. Their class structure is horrible and the teachers are over worked and are no where near meeting our individual academic requirements. UEI should be morally and generally ashamed of their all around core code of conduct... It's is beyond me why they continuously prey on the week.. Especially after the $9 million law suit back in 2016... But I guess that is why they revised their admissions papers made sure to cross every little T and more than dot all their I's. So much to the affect
    They through in some arbitrary papers and pressured us to sign on the dotted line of debt aka... These [censored] know what they are doing. 90 % of us coming in to not read the fine print. And they know this. So in reality it is a strong form of preying on the week... And this definitely needs to be addressed because at this point I see another law suit brewing. They are about to terminate me for my attendance.. I think that is way wrong. We pay them X amount money and I think I deserve a little more than you telling me I have to go [censored]!! You owe me a goddamn education and certificate and I should be able to it on my time since it is in my time after all

    My name Jessica I too was scammed by UEI in HP almost 15 years ago I finished my MA class after about 9 months. After finishing I called the office to ask for my diploma but of course no one was available I called about 12 times with never getting a response. I applied at several places but never was able to show my certificate of completion or my MA diploma. But my monthly calls about my payment never stopped. Finally I got a hold of some one and they said to receive my diploma I had to be up to date on my payments . So I had to settle with warehouse work after going to a so called college. When I did my taxes 3 years in a row they've took them luckily I only owe 2, 200 dollars now still with no diploma to show !!! Wow biggest mistake of my life please contact me [email protected]

They used and misled people. That just wrong and I'm in debt because of it. I didn't know what to do about it back then and obviously can't do anything now too many years passed, I wouldn't know where to begin.

    The UEI Class Action has settled for approximately $9 million in settlement monies. (Cordova et al. v. United Education Institute et al., AAA Case No. 73-516-Y-[protected]) In order to be eligible to receive settlement monies, CLASS MEMBERS MUST FILE A VALID CLAIM BY OCTOBER 4, 2016.

    You are a member of the class and may be eligible to make a claim if you graduated from UEI’s California campuses on or after October 15, 2008 and enrolled before August 22, 2013, who, within six months of graduation, did not find employment working at least 32 hours per week in a single position, within their field of study.

    You can also visit the UEI Settlement website at www.UEI.simpluris.com to read about the settlement and to complete a claim form online. If you have any questions about the class action, please contact us at [email protected]

    this school is a joke both me and my older sister attended the Huntington park campus and completed the course with 4.0 gpa's and were never helped in finding any job leads, not only that but we have not received our certificates for completing the course. whenever we call no one is available, but yet they do call constantly regarding the monthly payments! Not that long ago I tried contacting them trying to make different payment plans but was not helped in any way and was answered to in a disrespectful way.

    This school is a scam I have had a horrible experience at the UEI at Gardena and i regret going to the school to begin with. I attended the school while i was pregnant and was forced to take my last test while having contractions or I would have had to redo the whole Medical Billing Program. So i did that and i had my daughter almost 2 weeks later not only that but i was forced to start my externship while having contractions also or i would have been dropped from the program. I am willing to join in and tell my story to anyone that is willing to listen because i do have a story to tell and its unfortuante that i completed the course and was still dropped at the end because i could not return to complete my externship. If anyone would like to contact me i can be reached at [email protected]

I attended when I was 18 here I'm now 39 and still in debt never been placed anywhere. This ruined my life. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would not had even look once at that school knowing what I know now. Funny thing is the one I went to is permanently closed how convenient.

    This school is a complete scam. I just graduated from there and I have never seen a more unorganized place in my life. The advisers are never around to be found, Teachers are never there or decide to not show up and we get stuck with sorry subs that have no clue what they are doing or how to teach.

    I wish I would go back and take the 8 months I was there and go to another school, this school is a complete joke. They say that they well find you a job with in the first month of graduating, well to be honest, I have been two months out and have been sent on multiple failed interviews that where way more advance than what I knew... They are suppose to be putting you in jobs that you qualify for, not ones that are going to make you look like an idiot.

Maybe all those MA students are screwed but they should of taken the CST, especially the hot looking chicks that have like 5 kids...anyways I work in computers and have lots of money now! thanks UEI!
