I'm attending UMA now as a MAA student been in sense August. I would refer this school to anyone because i have seen proof of everything that was explained to me from day one..The Admissions and all the advisor's keeps there word on helping all students. I love my course that i am attending.I'm a 4.0 student and already on the Dean's list and i does put in 100% in all my work. If you wont achieve it you gotta show it go get what's yours. UMA is a great school. I will be attending again for my Associate Degree in this same field in the future.
I want to say that I love this school. You get exactly what you put in, if you give 100% you get a 100%. The instructors are really experienced and they have office hours so you can talk or chat with them about the work for the week. The student advisors are really great, and are there to help you every step of the way and also help you if you have problems with school work or life in general. I would totally recommend this school.
I am very dissatisfied with this school. After tons and tons of calls to make sure they got my grant money, they stopped calling as soon as they say my funds came in. I was withdrawn from classes 3 times without notice. Each time I was told I could restart. They are stir calling for me to restart. They most certainly are only after the money! I would definitely not recommend this school.
I was very pleased with UMA. All assignments were posted at the beginning of the week. It gave you plenty of time to get all your assignments and tests completed. My instructors were all good at communicating with you and helping you with any issues I had. My adviser was wonderful to help me with anything I needed. I graduated 9/9/15 with my associates. I passed my RHIT exam with AHIMA 10/7/15. I am now enrolled at WGU for my bachelors in Health Care Management. I loved my experience at UMA.
Most of the bad reviews I am reading is mainly about refund checks not about your degree. I am also currently taking courses for my diploma and if all goes well I will continue on with my associates. I know a school shouldn't be responsible for you landing a job. I have attended colleges in the pass before UMA and there was never anything about the school landing anyone a job. The effort is determined on how much you want it, and how motivated you are. If you want it, you'll find a way.
I received my associate degree in 2014 and could be happier. UMA helped me in every way they could and helped me find place of employment. Just a month after receiving my diploma I was employed. All the instructors that I had the pleasure of having always helped me with any questions or understanding that I needed. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants to go in to the medical field.
I really regret even taking these classes. I feel like it's all about the money. It's ALL A JOKE. Also, the career service advisors are so rude and did not help me to get a job. I have no car and I was told that I would be provided with an uber to make it to interviews, but whenever I needed one the advisors would be rude and they'd give me attitudes. Big mistake
I have had 6 instructors and only one was really structured and organized far as teaching.. the teacher I have now Is highly unorganized and the class is rude ... I was told about a project due today last week! And when I inquired about it I was told it was pronounced on the second week? Must have been the loud ride class... I am not learning anything Google teaches me more....I also have been told that my disbursement was approved and on its way....now I am being told that it has not been approved yet and still waiting results? ... I need that aid to be able to continue paying for child care so I can attend school and to begin paying back a loan from the mcla program that I still haven't yet to get a job in...I am also paying for book for classes that the instructors don't even teach out of!
I am currently a very satisfied student with UMA. I be he had my moments of frustration, but I have never been let down during these times, unless it's been me not reaching out. I'm truly sorry for any bad experiences anyone has had. I don't see any in my future and have had no warning signs yet. Online is a bit more difficult for me, I have to put extra effort into my commitment, but I LOVE it. Hopefully in 2016 when I graduate, I will have more great things to share.
I don't even know where to start with this school. They ignore you but blow up your phone when it benefits them. When your begging for help nobody will help you return a call or email nothing. I went to school for Medical Coding and Billing. I get asked where is my coding certificate well I don't know maybe I should ask my school. Well forget that they don't want to hear what I have to say they just want their money. Every time I have a question they don't know the answer to they tell me they will get back to me then I never hear from them and I have to get passed around on the phone until somebody can answer my question. They never told me I had a refund check they wasn't going to and the wouldn't have if I didn't ask about it. This school is just in it for the money. They don't deserve to be a school.
