Student & Graduate Reviews (153)
I liked UMA very much. I think all faculties were very helpful in every way they could be. I started with my degree then went back for my associate which I finish that March 2016. I would like to give a shout out to every employee at UMA and thank you for your support because without you guys I wouldn't made it to the end.
I have been pleased with the help fro.m the people. But not to happy that they said all my financial aide was gone and didn't get what was left, which makes no sense to me. I was signed up for the wrong class but hopefully I can still take the medical coding like I wanted to if not I going be mad because I am a single mother barely making ends meet. I had to get a loan and been trying to find scholarships and grants but can't find none. It would so help me because I work 3 jobs and still can't make the bills. But I hoping I still get financial aide to cover what I going for which is medical coding. But if not there will be big issues.
I normally don't do reviews, but I was very displeased with this school. I am enrolled currently, but I haven't even learned anything. They won't receive my calls, but they will blow up your phones 24/7. They messed up financial aid and said I've used 50% when it hasn't even been in the mail, they opened up to account which one says I'm not married and the other says I'm married. I've told them repeatedly that I was married, but haven't dropped the other one. They also force you into signing the documents for the enrollment process and won't go over any of the criteria with you. Right now, I'm transferring to Ashford University because they spent well over 3 hours explaining everything to me, unlike this school did. DO NOT ENROLL HERE! It's just a waste of time and money.
I have to say that UMA sets you up for success from the very start. It dismays me to see the negative comments in these reviews. There may be some blips and bumps in the road at times, but I was never left to my own devices. You are able to get through to a supervisor if need be. There is also a department called UMA CARES that acts as a student advocate if you feel as if your concerns aren't being addressed. The advisors, the instructors, and the financial aid department went above and beyond to help me. They have to follow federal regulations before they can release your left over money from your tuition. This is the same in ANY school! I worked very hard to maintain a perfect 4.0 GPA and I stayed on the Dean's List the entire time. I always received my books on time and career services rocks! I love the tools provided to me to help keep me sharp and ready to interview forvwhen I am ready. You cannot enroll in a school and not work hard and expect everythingvto be handed to you. I graduated in December of 2015 with high honors on the Dean's List. I am a Student Ambassador and I can say I am very proud to be representing this school. I am sad my journey needs to end. I wish you all the best of luck! Stay focused and determined. Remember to reach out for help if you need to! You can do this. I'd absolutely recommend this school to anyone serious about bettering their future!
I'm currently attending UMA. It's a pretty good school so far. I just would like to know when I will receive my grants. On my financial aid it says the estimated disbursement date is February 10, 2016 but how long after the estimated disbursement date when I receive my check?
I am a UMA alumni twice. My first degree in MAA & PhT. 2014/2015. It's the best online college that I will recommend to anyone. You work at your own pace with no rush unless you put thst on yourself.They never gave up on me when I wanted to give in. They called me to see if I am doing well with my classes and when I needed one on one tutorial they were available.There are so many tools that UMA provides and they have added so many more.You will have a lot of support system and they are a accredited school as well to get your bachelor. When you graduate they make sure you have the education you need to be successful. They help you land a job and believe me it will take time but you will have a job that's 100% guaranteed. My coaches, instructors, advisors on web application specialist work very closely with you. There are many more and they know who they are. Thank you UMA for standing by my side and helping me through my hard times and not giving up on me.
It was very easy to get started. They called me and I found out that my program could be covered by grants and a student loan. I spoke with admissions just 3 weeks before my class started on 9-7-15. I am still currently in my program, graduating in June. The process was very easy, got my books via UPS just a week before school started. The helped me start off with success. I love this school. A lot of the student comments that I have seen say that you get what you put in. It is totally true. I give 100% in all my classes and I am currently on the Dean's List. I have never been on the Dean's list before and it is very exciting. Having an honor like that will definitely give me confidence when I go job hunting. The only thing I can say is that there was some shortage of communication in regards to getting new books for my next course. Other than that, great school and staff.
Waste of my time and money! Told me I should move where the jobs are, cause I don't live near a major city! Told me my husband should quit his job so we can move to the city, not going to happen! Should have never done this school should have done one that I have actually heard of! Now, calling and harassing friends and family! So uncalled for!!
I have also been scammed by this school they called me a billion times at first, I got emails and things from them . I had ask 2 months ago about my student loan I was told I had extra I signed for them to send it to me now they claim it aint there and it takes weeks to request it. So I ask why tell me this is what is left after school and is mine if I want it. But in same breath when I ask how they have the right to tell me when I get what is mine or how they choose what an when you get anything if they not paying it back. I feel this school is a TOTAL SCAM I am going to apply for another school an get my loan put torward a school that is actually heard of before.
I love UMA!! I recommend this school to anyone! They don't leave you alone in the dust. They are always a phone call or email away. I never had felt so close to my school as this one and they are almost 600 miles from me!! I take online courses through them and I love it. They have many different resources you can choose from if you ever need any help. They even have people that will proof-read your papers! They will work with you financially and keep you updated on everything. I absolutely love this school and hope if you are planning on going back to school, that you give this one a chance!!
