Student & Graduate Reviews (170)
I graduated with high honors, on the honor roll every quarter. I felt the school was rather easy. I had issues with a few of the instructors. One would not answer any questions I had. I had tried to reach her by business phone, cell phone and email. It took over a week to get her to respond. I then was basically blown off with my needs. I rarely reached out for help but when I needed it I felt no one was there for me. My other issue was I was told my cost for Diploma and Associates program would be a total of $17000. When I finished my diploma program I owed with interest $17000 and they want another $10000 for the Associates program. I feel like I was lied to and swindled. My spouse who's getting a Bachelors Degree with an actual university is spending a total of $22000! I feel like I was ripped off!! I cannot say I would recommend this program to anyone just based on the cost factor.
This program was so thorough and detail oriented, I actually learned more than I did at my previous college where I attended in person instead of online! The course work was invaluable and there was always a tutor at my leisure to call and assist me with any questions or problems I may have had. I immediately found employment in my field with the degree I earned from UMA and am very grateful for the experience!
My decision to attend UMA was based entirely on my desire to become the most educated and prepared medical biller possible. UMA is dedicated to providing all of the training essential to student success in the medical profession. The instructors at UMA are some of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They truly care about their students success, and continuously go above and beyond to make themselves available to their students for support, both educational and personal. I am a two - time graduate of UMA, and I will always return to UMA for all of my secondary education needs.
UMA was the first college I attended after 20 years. Programs are phenomenal. After I graduated, my Career Advisor set up 9 interviews for me in one week. I received a job offer the same week. The staff is amazing!! Thank you all for such a wonderful experience!
I found it very difficult to get any assistance when I needed it from advisors or teachers. I found several of the teachers to be bias to their own opinions; meaning they would not accept another person's argument that was persuasive. I am now working in a call center as a health agent, that is soon going to be out of yet another job due to open enrollment ending. I needed help with the certification exam and did not receive any until it was too late. I am still paying back students loans for an 'education' that is useless.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with UMA ! I am working in a highly successful medical facility since I started my position I have added credentials to my associates degree. I thank UMA for all my success and for giving me the tools to learn how to learn.
I attended UMA three times for three different courses and I have loved every minute I was there. The advisors were nothing but helpful, and the career advisor was always there for you before and after graduating to help you find employment. The online class was really easy to understand and use and instructors are very understanding and helpful. Communication is the key if you have any problems and they are always there to help. I am happy I picked UMA and you will be too.
This is the best school... C. G. My admissions counselor was the best lady I ever spoke with... she helped me and talked with me.... the process was so easy... im a single mom of 3 with a full time job and I was still able to make a 3.89 on my diploma & a 4.0 on my associates degree... they make it so easy any possible to get a great education
To put it simply, the UMA mascot should be incompetence. Or Pass the buck. The only response you're likely to receive when needing assistance is an auto generated email. your instructors will reach out and then not follow up. If you need any other types of assistance you will find that you never speak to the same person twice. I wouldn't work there if they offered me a job. the customer is never right!
From the moment I started my journey with my admissions advisor to the the very last day i spoke with my Student Advisor, my experience with UMA was wonderful. They are always just a phone call or email away and sometimes even a text. They helped me with all my questions; issues if any with financial aid; the teachers were very helpful and willing to help you grasp the subject you were studying. The mock interviews were a HUGE help especially being your first time in the medical field. They helped me prepare for interviews and even helped me with getting my current job where i have been for almost 2 years. I wish I could go back to UMA to further my education into a RN, there is time still to do that. I hope that those that choose UMA have a great experience just as I did.
