UEIpointless debt

I took classes at UEI awhile back and I didn't learn anything. I only had one teacher that seemed to care that he was supposed to teach us. I asked one teacher to show me an example for the work that we were doing because I am a hands on type of learner and all she said (with an attitude) was look in the book. If students are basically paying you to teach them then teach. So I wasted my time and not to mention gas money that I had to scrounge together since half of that time I was living in my car to only accumulate debt. I wanted a chance to learn and get help finding a job but I didn't get either. Once I was done with the school I got a certificate late and no help finding a job. I got two phone calls with them asking if I needed help finding a job and each time I never got any help. Not to mention that there was a 6 month gap between each call. I don't think that it is right for them to do that. I am still struggling to find a job. I want my debt cleared. This is horrible. Knowing I will be in debt and my credit will be affected because I was only trying to better my life. Why is this school still in business. Knowing students in medical and dental programs and are probably working after going there is scary. Maybe those programs are better than the one I took but who knows.

        Dont get me started on Homeless abuse, I have several friends that have experienced the unfortunate wave of being homeless, they are probably more intellegent, respectful and down right good people that your average citizen that has taken life for granted. I had to witness (and we will call him fred) Fred just waling down the alley, when a black and white rolled up behind him and literally hit him and took off. several got it on tape when no more than an hour later the cops were swarming the neighborhood looking for that tape threatening anyone with knowledge to hand it over or face arrest and a beating.

        another one, all be it we will call him clemens, Clemens was walking to a buddies place i guess to get some weed to smoke and the person he was getting it from conned him into something else and it turned out to be an overdose of Oxycontin, he weebled and wobbled into freeway speed traffic and was instantly killed, if that is not bad enough, the Coronor would not even to an autopsy lets put it this way all his friends said his 2 bottles of booze were unopened and he was not intoxicated and he doesnt do pills, someone slipped him a hot shot intentionally. In my eyes no one is homeless transition maybe but not homeless by the way do you spell that with one word or two? lastly I was in that same position once so I can speak from experience. it sucks but I lived thru it.
        Peace out

        I agree with prejudice,
        I totally agree with your complaint up to "We Need Justice" there is "Legal Justice" then there are Just Us the small Kumbiah circle that make up the wheels of justice that dont give a damn and will always win. Case and point in court, an individual took me to court once and evidently knew the judge, with that said I came to court with my 2 witnesses and as procedure they were asked to wait in the hall till called once all other cases had been adjudicated I was the last one, the judge ordered the courtroom closed and no witnesses be called by the defense. I did not get to speak other than be sworn in. I lost the case hands down and was ordered not to contest it with a counter claim. That my friends is Just Us.
        prior to that I was taken to court in a criminal proceeding, I had all the evidence to make my case, physical and all inc videos and what not. My attorney told me his hands were tied and not to question that and if a deal was offered he was taking it for me do or die, I said why I want to fight this with a jury pooll? he said go ahead and the prosecutor will fry you as with this particular very high profile case he will perjur himself and his witnesses to win at all costs and you will do 10 hard. I am going what the F*** my attorney said that is the high stakes game of Just Us.
        end of story.

        I use to work at UEI College and they prey on the homeless, felons and hardworking families and give them the lies and scam of lifetime job assistance. I've seen forged documents, falsified JOB placements, false grad changes and attendance's rosters forged and fraudulent activity. UEI College is more interested in getting Heald College students to pad their pockets even more, instead their soliciting UEI Graduates that they haven't helped with job placement with emails stating they're looking to help Heald College students to help them find a home and if you know of anyone please have them contact UEI College, Why don't they HELP UEI GRADUTES FIRST BEFORE HELPING ANOTHER COLLEGE THAT FAILED THE SAME WAY UEI COLLEGE WILL. NOTHING BUT BS. THEY DON'T CARE!!! THEY JUST WANT THE MONEY MORE STUDENT IN DEBT WITH A HUGE SCHOOL LOAN AND NO HELP!!! I know I tried to help everyone but since the graduate was enrolled to far back that they weren't important and helping them wouldn't matter towards ACCSC/ACCET Accreditation. I spoke with a couple of ex admission reps and they informed me they would take the placement test for the homeless and potential students that failed the placement test to meet ACCSC/ACCET Accreditation numbers!! UEI COLLEGE ALL CAMPUS ARE LIARS AND SCAM EVERYONE THEY ENROLL. COMPANY POLICY that school has policies LOL hmmmm everything I witnessed was so unethical out of compliance the curriculum is outdated for all programs and some instructors don't even care what happens there as long as they have a job, they're harassed, threaten and forced to change student grads and attendance to once again meet Accreditation regulations to keep ALL UEI SCHOOL'S OPEN AND RUNNING UNDER FALSE PRETENSES, FORGED DOCUMENTS, LIES, SCAM, FALSE HOPE AND DREAMS!! HORRIBLE COLLEGE!!! DON'T DO IT, FIGHT BACK AND BE HEARD TODAY!! FILE YOUR COMPLAINTS LOOK UP ACCSC/ACCET Accreditation complaints and SPEAK UP TODAY!!! You have the school loan not them and they won't help you pay it but they will stalk you harass you and call every family member to get a payment but not update you on anything you paid for!! please leave a comment so we can work together to BE HEARD AND MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE FUTURE AND STOP ALL UEI CAMPUS TODAY!!! REMEMBER ITS PERSONAL NOT BUSINESS!!! BY: willingtofightback

      UEIselling false hopes and dreams

      Going into my uei experience I was hopeful to land a great paying full time career, to support my unborn child, instead I am stuck with 10, 000 of debt and no job in the medical field. The instructors at the schools aren't the best and don't really know what they are talking about. This school is all about the money you owe them instead of actually teaching. While attending this schoool I felt the pressure of them wanting money every other freaking day. The staff and instructors send out false hopes saying we will land you a job, nope never happend or atleast some kind of leads nothing!!! Even after I Graduated I would return to career services and no one seemed able to help me out with getting leads to hiring companies. This has to be the worst waste of time in my life wish I never went here wasted my time, gas, and energy.

          Collateral damage Feb 10, 2014

          They need to spend time behind bars... Too take peoples money... Introduce them to people like detectives and dispatchers as if you can be in there jobs when graduating is such a lie, false hope is true and exactly what they do, one of the first things they do is explain how they are an accredited school ... NOT true no one in the USA excepts them as such. This school is not even considered as a college. I had someone with a warrant out for there arrest in my CJ class, and even pointed out a drug deal that happened in front of my class both cj instructors did nothing. Graduated in 2012, still no work ... I wasted a year of time away from my very young children, Gas money, child care cost, studying for test, that mean nothing . I have to retake every class that I took there, and some... I do not think me and my babies will ever come out of this debt.

        Well!! when i enrolled into uei back in november 2011 a lot was said about how their success rate was good bla bla bla how my life would change after 8 months, granted every one's experience is different i know that.And the process was fast i mean the next day i was attending orientation and after was starting my first day of class and my financial aid had not been completed, so as classes were in session i was frequently pulled out of class to sign and finish my financial aid papers in which most of it was covered however the tuition options was big deal my payment became much higher than expected and yes the first payment was due the following month.soon after all that was done i found out my admin rep was no longer there, my class instructor was only with us for maybe a month then another instructor came in and have to say he was really good and he did not tolerate any b.s. like 3 months later he had informed the class he no longer be instructing our class, SO!! again we get another instructor which later found out he had been fired from uei in the past and for unknown reasons.and after he came aboard all hell broke loose i mean the class was always disrupted, disrespectful, and the street talk in the class was well you can fill the blanks in...this instructor's passion was not teaching and he made it clear to all and it showed in a big way.so i was nearing the end i was always communicating with my externship rep and discussed what area i wanted to go into which i assume is your choice..oh btw i took the cst computer systems technician course.he had set up a few sites for me and my first one went to a interview and thought it went well, so i return to the school to let my rep know how the interview went well guess what?i am told sorry he no longer works here, and could you come back in a few hours because the staff is in a meeting.I then return and another person will take over, well this person was a extern rep for a different course program not IT so i had to start over with a new rep in which that rep did not really know what i was wanting in to regards what area..anyway i am getting a little pissed and might not making to much sense here but i hope you think hard and do your research before deciding UEI COLLEGE as of right now i lay idled because my first 2 extern sites would be failing me and i know some critics would think otherwise...but again good luck on your choosing a school do your research...

            I agree! UEI is nothing but a scam to take your money, and teach nothing. It's like UEI is run by the Mafia and they are extorting money from the Government. I can not believe they are still open. They need to be shut down quick before they scam others. The school is a JOKE!!!

            UEI in chula vista only can be explained as a money hungry, or grant stealing from government for every student they signed, The problem is they, don't care if you finish, as long as you apply for grants of approx $ 2000~4000 for. Each student, , so they get their money and the loan starts to accrue interest daily. I had 3 different instructors, most just read from teachers editions without any description of why or how to code, just read the answers while everyone wrote rhem down . Most of the software I, e, Medisoft for healthcare providers was never taught . The syllabus was a joke and my last teacher let a student take a test at his house, constantly talked about his lovers since he was gay, and pay more attention to the male students or discussing the lunch ideas with his few girlfriends, I feel he discrninated against those who weren't gay or didn't have a lot of money and really wanted to learn . I have several classmates that would be happy to testify to this fact. I did keep my grades recorded and they were always several data entry errors

          UEI Collagerip off

          I started this school in august 2010.I wanted to go to a school where I can get a job right away with out doing all my general classes. I should of done more research about this school. First of the staff is not even professional. They were really demanding I had told them I had to discuss the price with my father and they kept insisting i sign up that day the price would go up if I waited. They assured me I would get a job in no time and I wouldn't have any trouble paying off the 15, 000 loan. I thought to my self well if I'm going to get a job and start my career I should do it. It's been a year since I graduated. I have yet to find a job. I go in and call UEI constantly they never help. This is the worst school you can ever attend. They only want your money. After you graduate they forget all about you and start worrying about the money. They told me they wouldn't start to charge me six months AFTER i get a JOB, well months into the program they were already charging me. This school is such a scam they should shut it down, all they do is victimize people. I really don't know why after all these years its still up. All were stuck with is 15, 000 loan and no job. None of my classmates or other students have found a job. Seriously, the WORST school ever. Save your money and just attend a city collage its longer but its worth it.

              No one can truly guarantee you a job straight out of school. Loan payments start 6 months post-graduation, whether you have a job or not. Only other option you have is to defer them.

            THIS SCHOOL IS A ###IN SCAMMMM!!!

            I attended UEI back in 2011, finished in jan. 2012 (Medical Assisting). I swear I wasted 9 months of my life at that ###in place, not only did i not learn anything or get any jobs out of it. But the school itself is a joke, you learn more about the teachers personal lives then you do about the education that your paying them 16 grand for. Not to say they had the nerve to tell me that i owe them a extra $100.00 all because they said the month that i enrolled they were broke (how is that i flaut??!). And the fact that they charged me $75.00 registration is supposed to $50.00! When I started at UEI I paid off everything with cash up front. I know for a fact i dont owe anything to that ###in ### bag place.

            I would advise everyone to stay away from trade schools, ESPICALLY UEI !
