UTI Houston campus is all about money if you're not completely stable I would not recommend enrolling.First of all they lie over the phone to get you to come out here.

Telling you that you will have at least 3 job interviews /day for the first 2 weeks. They don't help you with employment they just give you referrals and tell you to go apply. If you're in assisted housing you better make sure you have rent money to last your entire stay. Rent is due on the 5th eviction notices are sent on the 4th and arrive on the 5th.

The grading curriculum sucks If you miss a minute you get charged 15 minutes of attendance UTI houston campus ain't *** first of all they lie over the phone to get you to come out here. The first couple courses be all good. Then when you actually put time in they tryna kick you out for any and every little thing BUT make you pay to leave . get 12 hrs total allowed to miss.

My roommate failed a course because of a flat tire so that tell you they dont care. If you smoke you better quit now. They "Random Drug test" if you fail they fail you for the course send you to rehab for 3 weeks and make you pay 100$ each time you go to the class. That pretty much explains everything I can think of.

Don't get me wrong there's SOME people that actually care about you but student service SUCKS there's a lot of benefits they do have, but you'll go throughout the whole year without them even mentioning them to you. The first couple courses be all good.

Then when you actually put time in they try to kick you out for any and every little thing BUT make you pay to leave .They don't care if you're dying, homeless or missing body parts First thing to come out their mouth is "There's nothing we can do".

Well to be completely honest you just sound like an illiterate ***.Have you never heard of grammar?

No wonder you hated the school your probably just to dumb to see that nothing you explained here is out of the ordinary, its all real life application.You know, for like grown people who are actually supposed to contribute to society.

Hello, I am sorry to hear you have had an unsatisfactory experience with UTI.I can assure you and anyone else viewing that we are not a scam and are held to strict regulations by the U.S.

Department of Education on the information we disclose. Our disclosure information (student, graduate, and employment rates) can be found on the Universal Technical Institute website under the "Student Services" tab. UTI maintains a curriculum development department to design and modify our programs according to industry needs. Working closely with industry advisory boards, curriculum development professionals determine the skills needed by technicians in today’s job market and develop curriculum that will convey that knowledge.

With that being said, our labs and programs are meant to replicate the schedule, atmosphere, rules and overall experience that you’ll likely have with your first employer. And while we cannot guarantee employment, we do pride ourselves on assisting our students and graduates from the beginning and throughout their entire career. This includes helping assist with job searches. If you had or are having trouble finding employment, I would be happy to help connect you with your Graduate Employment Specialist to assist with your search.

More importantly, if you feel that you were lied to, this is something that would need to be addressed. Please send me any specific details (along with any documentation, names of folks you spoke with, etc.),...

I can be reached at difry@uti.edu.Thank you - Diana Fry, Social Marketing Specialist, UTI/MMI/NT

Dude you make no sense here.If you learn how to talk/type/write in a manner that people can understand you will be much more successful and happier in life.

Also periods, commas, and a lil better grammer will help make your typing/writing much easier to understand.

Not trying to be a d*** just saying.The adult/career world doesn't care how gangsta/hard you are they just want to hire an employee who works hard and can communicate well with people.
