      My son is attending UTI, and while the majority of teachers are very good, and the education is good for students who apply themselves, the administration is a nightmare. They have a terrific sales team who sell the school to high school counselors and parents, but it is all down hill after enrollment begins. No help with housing, jobs, or financial planning - as was promised in their presentation. It took me 4-months to get a simple receipt for tuition payments as well as his first report card; 6-calls to find out when the school holidays were scheduled so I could make travel arrangements. It is impossible to speak with anyone who can answer questions, and messages left with request for a call back are not answered. The information I am able to receive has never been accurate, and there have been straight out lies from the financial aid department who encouraged him to extend his education, then misled him on the procedure. We are self pay, but were required to submit all financial information as if we were applying for student loans, and when I questioned their tuition totals, I was told they include estimates of living expenses, so I should ignore these numbers. My experience with this school has been very unsatisfactory, and I was not surprised to see a number of pending lawsuits from former employees and students. Deceptive practices rarely capture good reviews regardless of the level of education.

      i graduated from this "school" in 2006 with nearly $30,000 worth of student loans. i was able to secure a job in the field no thanks to the help of the uti staff. The only response i recieved from them was "we do not see anything in the location you are interested in". along with offers to go work on an oil rig in the ocean with some company called slumber j. needless to say i was furious with my decision to attend the moneymill that is UTI. why do i call it a moneymill, its a publicly traded company with market watch revenues of $413.55 million and a net income of $9.03 million. in my personal opinion this "companies" interests lie in the revenues Not the students who get suckered in straight out of highschool like i did with promises of great futures. i have to say UTI has great salesmen. so hear i am in 2013 still paying on student loans. like i said earlier i was able to get a job in the field without their aid when i "graduated" and recieved my Diploma which isnt worth the paper its printed on. i was hired on at $12.00 since i had little experience in the field finally moved on from that job after 4 years and currently make $20.00 an hour solely due to my own talents and experience. the employer had little interest in the school i attended. i hope parents and potential students read this and realize that these automotive schools are a wast of time and money do yourself a favor and explore other avenues.
