      It's sad but true. It was only a matter of time before the deception would catch up with the school. It's really disappointing for anyone who owes money for the education they received from the school.

    UEI Collegemisleading consumers

    Embarrassed to say but, I am a consumer at UEI College. I have made my complaints known to the school. They have sent their chain of command, twice now, to meet with me to defend the actions of their employees rather than listen to the consumer, me, the student, as to what obligations they have not met as part of my tuition paid through student loans to this school. I was given the "You should-have, could-have, " canceled within 7 days spiel. If I had engaged Career Services for career placement within the first 7 days and experienced what I had, there would be a cancellation inevitably.

    Have any of you who have complained sought an attorney, are interested in retaining an attorney for a class-action law suit, written to the accreditation organization endorsing them, or have written to Congress (if you didn't know, Obama wants to take away federal funding to these schools for a reason) to pursue exposure or halt the unethical practices of these types of institutions and seek a refund you believe you are entitled to?

    It's January 2011! Don't just be pissed-off that you were duped...be proactive and do something about it. Get your money back. Discredit these fools for their unethical practices so that it stops! AND most importantly, keep your research going, seek the education to get into the field that you intended before this school got in the way, don't give up your dream. Maybe through court you will win the case against this school and they will have to pay for that education, or at best, pay you for damages for all that time wasted. Wouldn't that be nice? Seeking it out...you should do the same.

      So I decided to attend UEI because my admissions counselor was so nice to me and I really felt that the rest of the employees would be the same. But of course I was wrong. I know that every school has policies and procedures but not everyones situation is the same. So i just assumed that someone in the school would understand my situation and that there procedures and ploicies could be bent a little for a single parent trying to get an education. All of my tuition would be paid off by a grant and the career center so I decided to apply for student loans to pay for my living expenses. I expressed this to every person that I spoke to before I signed the final papers to get into the school. But at my last visit with financial aid I was told that my student loans wouldnt be disburssed to me untill my tuition is at a zero balance. Meaning that because grants are released into two disbursments they would be using all of the student loan money to pay off my tuition before I could get anything to pay for my living expenses. In other words UEI cant wait to get there money from the grants they will take your student loans to get theres first even though they know your school tuition is completely taken care of, they cant wait to get there disbursment of grant theyll take your student loan money to paythemselves off first. I tried talking to the director to see if anyone could help me around this because I am a single parent of two. Of course there answer was no. So I guess now I will have to live in my car because UEI wont make an exception for me.
