I graduated in 1997. I literally dressed up, walked in graduation, and have photos of the day...not to mention, my degree paper as well.

Years and years later, I wanted another copy of my transcript sent to a University (yes, I have a copy of that too) so I called. The lady tried looking me up several times and then vehemently told me that I never attended UTI!!! I still have student loans to this day that I am paying on and they do not acknowledge my attendance nor graduation. She said something about a fire...lost their paperwork...blah, blah, blah...but what happened to the digital records????

UTI received loan money. They profited.

I...now have no degree, according to them. I think I should have no loans then.

Great instructor when he can see over the desk. Alot of experience and knows what he is talking about, except the miata, he should never touch those.

but overall, if i had the choice id be happy with him as my instructor for every class. The school overall is not something i would do again knowing how it is here now, but Mr Delaney definitely helped keep me going and showed me what i actually came to learn.

I had his courses a few montsh ago and he still helps with the ones i need help in. ok well im out of stuff 100 words is ridiculous

I went to the Exton, PA campus. This field is for people that are knowledge thirsty, physically strong, work hard and are independent. If whoever is attending the school does not have all of those they will fail. I went to college and I also went to this school. You...

My son graduated from UTI Dallas on February 2, 2018 and there are not enough words to express my gratitude and joy for what UTI did for him. Because of a hearing impairment, school has always been laborious for him and his self esteem was diminished because of it. But...

Universal Technical Institute in Exton, Pennsylvania - These reviews are not wrong

This company and it is a company, not a school is one of the most deceitful and underhanded companies there is. Kim McWaters and her merry band of thieves will fleece you for all the money you have saved for you child's education and then they will force you to pay more money. Don't be fooled by their campuses that they sink dollar after dollar into to suck you in. They don't put a dime into quality education. Do your research and go to a non-profit school. What UTI does should be against the law ... Oh Wait !! It is !!! UTI gets away with what they do because they pay off politicians and they have people like John McKain visit their NC campus. I'm sure that John accepted some kind of "compensation" for his visit and his endorsement. UTI is a scam school and they will scam you as far as you will let them. Be smarter than them, don't buy their smoke and mirrors.

Dear internet people, I just graduated last week from UTI with an Auto Technology and full F.A.C.T certification. I thankfully had the GI Bill to cover most of the tuition and only have a $7k loan which is better than most of the people coming to UTI. I am 21 years old...

Details

I attended this school for roughly 6 months- I had to with draw due to military orders. As a result I received a bill for 900 dollars " military tuition deduction".

It was sent to collections before I was made aware of it and paid off in collections. Now 3 years later, I call UTI because it now shows on my credit as a 637 dollar debt. and it shows it is an outstanding debt. I tried to call the so called school and get nothing but Uhmms and uhh's.

when I try to talk to the people in accounting I get nothing but voicemails and no returned calls. This school will no prepare you for any kind of job outside of a dealership structure.

don't buy in to the nonsense your recruiters try and press on you. Veterans- Do you self a favor and use your GI bill more wisely then I did at this business in disguise as a school.
