Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the people that work at the school don't understand that you have a schedule and don't call when they say. Other than that my degree has gotten me into a job that has been my "foot in the door". You can it expect to leave school and start making a lot starting out. You have to start from the bottom and make your way up. The courses I took really did help me to get to where I am.

UMA is the best college i have ever attended. The coaches, instructors and advisors were so helpful. My career program was a phenomenal one. At UMA they are concerned about you, not just your career. It was a smooth transition for me. From beginning to end. I would recommend my friends to attend there. I had no issues at all, getting into the Academy. My experience with UMA was awesome. I plan on going back to get my associates. All i can say is UMA is the college of today!!

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

I started school at UMA in may of 2016 and so far I love my classes. They're not too easy but they aren't too hard either. I love my instructors. The only problem I have is that I can't ever get ahold of my student advisor for any questions I have . I always catch her machine which I always leave a message and never get called back. They never call me to see how I'm doing . other than that, ultimate medical academy is awesome. And the person above who said its not an accredited school, where are you getting your info dude?

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2010

Waste of time! The company you work for will train you On their operating system, none are the same! Having your certification is enough! The classes were not challenging at all. The Book was very helpful regarding the industry, the classes were irrelevant.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2017

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...

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Health Information/Medical Records Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2016

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!!!
