I am unsure about other UEI College campuses, but the Anaheim campus is total BS.
I graduated in April of 2011 and they STILL have not become accredited OR called me back for my coronal polishing. It was a good school with a very detailed education EXCEPT for the fact that upon enrollment my admissions rep GUARANTEED that upon successful completion of the program that a student WILL have all certificates and knowledge to take the state RDA exam, which includes a coronal polishing certificate. A month before graduating they told us they would not have the coronal polishing certification available to us until they become accredited, which would most likely be after our graduation. They then promised us that they would call us back to take the class the moment it becomes available. I called quite a few times and they only continued to feed me lies on top of more lies. My fellow peers tried calling too, they received the same responses as I had.. Eventually I became fed up. I called the campus once more to inquire as to why they would have the admissions reps tell potential students that they would have ALL certificates necessary to take the RDA exam and that the cost was a part of the tuition. They then claimed that the reps do not state that it was a part of the tuition nor was it even stated that graduated students would be fully prepared to take the state exam and that none of their admissions reps would tell a prospective student that upon enrollment. I then called some of my former classmates to see if our experiences matched. They said that THEIR reps told them the SAME EXACT THING as my rep told me, and that they are going through the same thing that I am. So, I guess we must ALL be delusional about what each of our DIFFERENT reps told us, right?!?!?!?
This is only a FRACTION of the things that went wrong. But I'll leave it in conclusion of this:
I graduated top of my class, holding a 4.0 through the entire program, I gained an immense amount of invaluable education and the instructors really do care (Thank you, Mr. G, you are WAY to good to be an instructor at this school!)
But after all of my hard work, restless nights of studying because I had to hold a full time job while going to this school AND missing a year of my life, I now have nothing except a crappy DA certificate to show for it and a MOUNTAIN of school loans that I have well begun to pay off. I would NEVER recommend the Anaheim campus to ANYONE. But if you do decide to inquire with them ask them why they lied to their students about accreditation and certificates/training that "is included" in the tuition cost. In the words of MANY graduates, BEWARE!
