I had an amazing experience with UMA online. I was able to juggle my busy family life and keep up with my school work. Having 4 kids that was tough but, I did it! The classes are well paced and the work load is not too overwhelming. I would recommend UMA to anyone ready to go back to school. After I graduated the career service department helped setup interviews and I had a full week of back to back interviews. I was able to pick the job that I wanted. The personal growth that I have gained from this has been priceless to me. Thank you UMA
While I was attending I couldn't be more happy. Each person I spoke to went above and beyond to get the answers I needed. I recently moved and have contacted uma to help find a job, as that's supposed to be part of the tuition. However, it's going on 3 weeks and I'm still waiting on a call from my career advisor. I spoke to someone yesterday who promised me an email and a call back, it been almost 24 hours and I haven't received either one. Each time I call, they demand my name before they will attempt to help me, when I refuse because I will have to verify with the next person, they say there is nothing else they can do. They offered to take my name and have someone call me back, but to me it's just another lie because I've been waiting for nearly 3 weeks. Not to mention no matter what number you call, it's always"classroom support" and there's not even an option for alumnus. I'm extremely upset and disappointed that what was promised and the key reason I chose uma, has proven to be false. Be careful before choosing uma.
This school is a total scam I am 4 classes away from graduating and then today I received my award letter for 2016-2017 and was told I didn't have enough to cover my classes just to remind you the aid year starts from Aug-June 30 bottom line they are taking people financial aid money so when I called federal student aid they said the school was committing fraud because they used the money from 2016-2017 for the previous aid year now they want me to pay 3755 out of pocket because they covered my classes from April til June when those classes was still on 2015-2016 aid year the classes are non transferable so all the loans I took out was a waste they are currently under investigation after they realized I called federal student aid they would not talk to me regarding what happen to all my money DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME NOW I HAVE TO START ALL OVER AND THE GOVERNMENT IS LOOKING INTO IT TO REQUEST THEIR FUNDS BACK AND BY THE WAY FROM AUG UNTIL NOW I ONLY TOOK ONE CLASS SO HOW IS ALL MY MONEY GONE WHEN I RECEIVE THE MAX AMOUNT
I would highly recommend going to this school. They are willing to help you achieve your goal and see you exceed in whatever your degree you choose. They will walk you step by step through the whole process. Now that I have graduated they are willing to help me find a job too.
This is an amazing school I would recommend it to anyone wanting to chose a healthcare field for any major. The professors are amazing as well and take time to help you out when it is very much needed. They are also helpful in any way as possible.
UMA has friendly, and beyond helpful staff. I graduated from UMA two years ago. Literally two weeks after I graduated UMA's Career Advisors helped me receive my first job in my career field as an Pharmacy Technician. I've been in my field for 2 years and I love every moment of it. Still to this very day advisors check in with me to ensure that I still have a job and even offer more opportunities. How awesome is that?! I highly recommend this school to anyone
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! The classes are easy to take online and the teachers are very nice, but it's the financial department that is AWFUL! I have been getting the run around trying to get my financial aid and loans going. It has been since March when I filled out my FAFSA and I'm STILL getting the run around with my loans. First they said I needed to amend my taxes dated back to 2013 and didn't even tell me why I needed them amended. When I talked to my tax preparer she told me that school has no idea what they are talking about and I didn't itemize my taxes to need to even get them amended. When I told my school this they then told me I needed to get a letter head stating this. Once I done so, they then had another excuse and told me I needed to go to the IRS website and get a ax transcript mailed to me. After finally getting all of this sent to me and me emailing all of this information, they then told me I had to get my 2015 taxes amended once again! I then went to H&R block and put the financial department on the phone and once I put him on the phone they then told him they didn't need me to amend them anymore after giving me they run around. When I finally think I have done everything they needed they then tell me all of my things are under review. I then have to wait weeks to find anything out. I then called yesterday to check on my loans and they told me to call back today (9/20/16) so I did. The guy then gives me the run around on trying to no mail me my left over loan money, and telling me how they can increase my school tuition at any time so they are setting the money back if that does happen. He then puts me on hold for 10min and comes back on the line and says he has a meeting he needs to go to and he will call me back. I'm done with this school and their b/s. I'm going to see about transferring. All I'm saying is, do not go here. You will get the run around and end up paying more money than what they actually say your school is going to be.
I am a recent graduate and I would recommend Uma to everyone. They encourage you and guide you through each process. I struggled a lot with being a full time parent and also holding a full time job. UMA instructors are very helpful and give you options to help you pass. The Live Labs and tutoring sessions were very helpful. They give all the tools you need to be successful. Career Services also keep their promise, They go above and beyond to get their Students into their respected fields. I have a job doing just that thanks to Career Services. Thank you UMA staff for being there for me even when I doubted myself
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! You will end up paying back $27,000 to end up with NO job! They do not train you, so don't let the scrubs they send you fool you! This school is a big SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very unsatisfied with UMA. Nobody out there in the Medical Field is going to hire you with NO training. And I'm not just saying that. I have personal friends that tell me all about there interviews and I look up reviews from different people. One lady said that she still cannot get a job after graduated 4 years ago! Just think about going to UMA and do your research.
I struggled with the online program I didn't always feel the program was geared towards working adults. I had issues with my computer and opted to use their computer program it was great at first then when I had issues with it no one seemed to know how to help and had me going in circles calling to get help with my computer issue. I graduate soon and it isn't resolved yet. I am so frustrated and upset and don't feel I was able to give a 100 percent to the program.
