Universal Technical Institute - Uti Financial Aid Review from Live Oak, Texas

Mulitiple times i went to student services about my financial aid never got replied to or a call back explaining to me clear or accurate answers. I had to call someone at another campus in Houston to get correct answers. Their answer is always we will increase your student loans im a veteran student with VA benefits. I shouldnt have to take student loans. Please if you plan on attemding this school listen carefully to the fine print. The training and instructors were awesome Mr. Vandivere, Mr. Sutton just to name a few were top notch instructors that will help you in anyway they can. The admin. Side of the school needs serious retraining. They will tell you anything that you want to hear to get you enrolled after that have fun trying to get anything resolved on the admin. Side.

Universal Technical Institute in Rancho Cucamonga, California - UTI-Overpriced, has potential, could be ALOT better. Disappointed in all

$30K to learn things I already knew. But hey, their recruiters make a LOT of money. So maybe that should have been the job I went for upon graduating. The experience of being in Cali was nice, minus the 800/month for a 400 sq ft studio. But UTI did hook us up with Pit passes for the Pomona NHRA Winternational and the Allstate 500. I met a lot of really cool people and had some wonderful experiences. But still not worth the tuition. $15k? MAYBE. Oh and then there's the whole fact of the Financial Aide officer telling me she would defer my loan for a year when I graduated. A year later, I got a letter notifying me of my DEFAULTED loan. Nothing received about my loan until that letter. Oh, and my perfect attendance, 4.0GPA, BMW STEP program etc, didn't seem to make too many people want to hire me. The dilemma is People only want to hire employees with REAL shop experience (which they do not consider UTI to be so) and it makes it hard to get "REAL" shop experience without getting hired.So, all in all, could actually be a really good school if: A) wasn't so expensive B) it wasn't a revolving door check cashing place who doesn't care what happens to you once you're gone and they have your money(too much of it) C) if it was actually mostly hands-on as promised and advertised D) if they were upfront and didn't make fantastical promises of making top dollar in the field from the day you leave.

Universal Technical Institute in Fullerton, California - UTI takes advantage. Waste of money!

My husband attended UTI four years ago. Number one THEY DID NOT provide any type of externship/internship. All they provided was a list of job openings. Most were all to be a lube and oil person. Also they were only allowed to work on cars (other than the little classroom projects) ONCE a month (the first Saturday from 8:00-1:00 pm.) Heck, even a JC allows you to bring in your own car and tinker on it multiple days a month. The promise the students that they are going to be making upward of 30.00 per hour and pay back the tuition in no time. SAVE YOUR MONEY and go to a Junior College. 40k is a ridiculous amount of money for this program and the student loan payback is outrageous!

Universal Technical Institute - Technical Training Review from Lake Villa, Illinois

The instructors are unprofessional. They bring their problems at home to work. Just because you are provided with an education does not mean you are going to graduate with the adequate skills to work. The reality is you need to work in a shop next to techs that have been working on cars for a long time. I was a mechanic for total of 6 years, Infiniti for about 2. (No longer work on cars.. Moved on to something else) Let me tell you this... Save your money... You are better off buying a bag off *** and a case of beer everyday for the rest of your life than paying off your overpriced tuition, buying tools with the pay check that isn't much higher than minimum wage. You are going to need about $4,000 at least in tools. If you have kids (not that I do) you won't be able to feed your family. UTI's ads are FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! They project the IDEA to you that you are going to be ripping engines apart all day left and right everyday. You won't. You are going to be dealing with headaches. Getting screwed over on warranty pay and have fun with the PAPERWORK.. Which they have promised you in their commercials that you won't have to do. Working on cars is not fun. No real mechanic will tell you it's SO MUCH FUN!!! Unless they are on prescription medication and/or drunk. Several mechanics told me to GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN.. So I did, and I'm glad I made that decision. You might be thinking to yourself that cars are your life, and this is something that you really want to do. I understand your passion, because I love having my toolbox in my own garage. I would really consider other career options but if you really MUST work on cars than start by working a shop and learn from other techs. You will learn more than you will at UTI... You you won't be billed $35,000. Think of what you can do with that money. REMEMBER: UTI is a CORPORATION.. THEY WANT YOUR MONEY. Your failure is not their problem.

When I was in high school I was a porter at Friendly Ford. After seeing the industry and career options, I knew that I wanted to work in a dealership. UTI was an easy choice to get the training. In fact, the dealership advised me to go to UTI and take the Ford FACT...

Universal Technical Institute in Kissimmee, Florida - Graduate certificate is as good as a receipt for $30k down the drain

Join MMI, waste 1.5 to 2.5 years at technical college, bounce from dead beat job to unappreciated workforce jobs while you're struggling financially through school, get graded on attendance and wonder how some people even get to walk across the stage because they've slept or barely skated through classes. Just like any other college, there's dopers, slackers, and the stinky kids, and the rare person who's going to excel at mechanical stuff, if he ever lands a job. Graduate job placement= a joke. Write your own resume and job hunt yourself. Employment Services must have had someone else help them land their jobs, because they couldn't have found it by themselves.
