Student & Graduate Reviews (153)
I started UMA in May 2016. I love it so far. I know things can get overwhelming for me, and that's just me because I'm so used to giving up... but I don't plan on it this time. I only here ppl not receiving funds but I plan on requesting them and hope I don't have any issues. The last online school I attended, they automatically sent me the funds without asking me, which was very helpful for me. And, when I request them with UMA this upcoming week (June 13, 2016) to be exact, I hope i have no trouble. My sister received her funds when she first started and the only thing she said was it took a while in which I expected. So, I'm patient I can wait on it. I had her read over my award letter and she told me exactly what would be available to me. So, hopefully I won't have issues. I would have to because I've been looking long and hard for an online Medical school, I found one and I like it so far. I'm looking to graduate October 8, 2017. I read one of the reviews here saying that they found out this school isn't accredited... is that true? Kind of have me nervous because clearly I was told it was...
This school is a joke. I was told I would get money after so many months and now I'm told I won't. The homework I have now has nothing to do with what you read. I would never go to this school again or recommend it and now come to find out its not even an accredited school.
CAHIIM accredits HIM education programs at the associate degree level. To begin your search for a program, use the link below to search by education level, institution name, state, or distance learning (online) delivery. And UMA is on the Site and active. Which is important in the HIM field. This school is accredited for the HIM program. The bad reviews are from people not getting refund check? Seriously!? If you solely go to school to get a refund check you need to rethink your plans and maybe get a job! Credits will transfers only to a school that also is accredited through AHIMA. If you decide to pursue Bachelors in HIM like me. Students interested in obtaining a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate, Certificate of Completion or Transfer of Credits information, must contact the CAHIIM Accredited program they wish to enroll in regarding their institutional policies.
This school is crazy and is not out to help students with grants. I was told I pre-approved for state grants but the college has to submit the forms for it. I called Ultimate Medical Academy about the forms but they told me they don't help with things like that only Pell. So, I asked to get a loan for the help. These stupid people where asking me what the loan was for ect. Look, If I needed the funds and I have to pay it back what difference does it make. No other school does like this. If the money does not go to the school they seem to don't care what you need. The amount for the program is way to much and it's really not worth the money but since I already started, I might as well finish. I hate how this school does the students in the financial aspect of it.
I enrolled in Ultimate Medical Academy January 25, 2016. I am pursuing my Associates in Healthcare Management. Tomorrow May 2, 2016 I will be starting my 21 weeks in school. I have got to say that Ultimate Medical Academy is far the best school I have seen. The instructors, coaches, advisers and the rest of the staff are extremely nice and they care about you and your education. There was always someone there for me when I needed them I never had to wait very long to speak to someone. I love this school and I would definitely recommend this school to my friends.
I have attended several schools in the past searching for a school that will have affordable tuition and the support that I need. UMA is excellent. Tuition at other schools were triple the tuition cost at UMA literally. The staff is wonderful. The staff reaches out to me at least twice a week to ensure I'm doing good in my classes and have no issues. I am on the Dean's List. My GPA is a 4.0. I'm very pleased with UMA, the cost, the support, and the training In receiving. If you are truly serious about your career blossoming and really want to help yourself, then UMA is a great place to land yourself. They'll work very hard for you to ensure you succeed if that's what you want. My books are delivered a week before class starts directly to my door by UPS. I get an email when my package is in route to my house. And, I receive am email when my books have been delivered. There are always going to be people that will find something negative to sat. But, I say if you attend UMA for your diploma, you will want to go back again for your Associates. My only issue is I can't decide which program I want to take next. And, the time it takes to complete a program is unbelievable. Go UMA!!!! Best school I have ever come across and I want everyone to feel good about the education they're receiving and from whom they're receiving it. UMA also makes it a priority to keep your student loan debt to a minimum. Most schools don't care about getting you into debt up to your neck. But, UMA won't allow you to be up to debt even to your knees more less your neck. Try UMA, BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT EARNING YOUR DIPLOMA OR DEGREE!! UMA IS PERFECT!!!
UMA has always made an attempt to make sure I was keeping up with my work. When I had called in with a concern, it didn't take "the team" long to get back with the answer. Everyone was so bright and cheerful, always knew how to give praise! I love how you could call in and be so frustrated about something and by the time you were done on the phone with learner services, you could be laughing. I feel like they all put me as a person and not a number...to some people that is very important. I'm very glad that UMA puts me, my education, all straight up on the top of the totem pole! Thanks UMA, YOU ALL ROCK!!!
This is the second online school I have signed up for. Let me tell you that I am fully pleased with my decision to continue my education with UMA. It took me a little time to get financial aid straightened out due to having a UEH, but the UMA team worked with me every step of the way and then some! This school does NOT let you "fend for yourself". The day my classes started, I was overwhelmed. I didn't know how to navigate the site, I didn't know what I was doing. My second day of classes, an advisor called me, walked me through the site, showed me where to find everything I need, walked me through submitting an assignment, and answered any question I had, no matter how rhetorical they may have seemed. I know that I am just starting my program, but I would recommend this school to EVERYONE. They have a great support system, have a ton of resources, and their advisors really make you feel like they genuinely care about your future. This has been a MASSIVE change from University of Phoenix. They have a few other programs I'm interested in! I've never been more pleased about an educational decision!
I graduated with the degree in Health Science and was informed that none of my classes would transfer to another degree in their school or any other college. I basically wasted my VA funding on a school that is worthless.. Please do not waste you money.
I am very pleased with all the help I receive. I am I am amazed how organized and we'll they run the online course. Call me regularly to keep me updated and check on my progress. When I tell other on line students how often USA communicates with me they can not believe it, some of hardly hear from their school . They say they just do not have the support I get.
