Dismal enrollment numbers

Dismal numbers. UTI is truly on life support. I can't imagine how unbearable it must be to be a UTI rep and a financial aid advisor. The pressure must be extreme. Reps enrolling students, and financial aid advisors pressured into acting like... read more

Fewer students but the bonuses keep getting paid

So here we are another loosing quarter, fewer students , empty classrooms and building a new campus. Since 2010 we've gone from 18600 students to 10900 at the end of 2017. That's a loss of 1100 students a year, and I don't even have a business degree... read more

Leadership at UTI lacks any morals

Expecting lower enrollment for 2018 and still spending 11 million dollars on a new campus. What in the hell is wrong with these people? Kim McWaters and her bunch of dopes have ruined this company. But we can rest easy knowing all of the senior team... read more

Anyone know what is going on?

Does anyone know the current health of our company. Our lead situation is the worst I have ever seen and there is no way to sustain a company with this type of lead flow. Any word of layoffs?

Admission Reps - salary

Paying them based on graduation rates (which is what they used to do) but in no way has any control over, is completely unethical. Yes let's continue to force the students to PAY for education that doesn't warrant the tuition!

UTI slashes dividend 80%

Wow....stuff like this doesn't happen to healthy companies. UTI just admitted they are screwed, in my opinion. Demolishing the quarterly dividend from $0.10 per share to a mere couple copper pennies is not the way to reverse the share price slide.
