Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2019

I had the school help me find a job and im still with out a job, the jobs they are trying to place me at is not in my field, i thought when i m got my degree that i would be placed in a office or something but they jeep trying to pull me for jobs that i know for a fact i want get because my are is big on hands on and liscense, ile only get an inter view but thats as far as ile make it and the position their offering me is no more than 10 an hour. I told tge lady that i would like to find my own job i no longer needed their help and today my mom tells me that the lady called her phone. That is harassing, thats something you dont do. Great school but not good at job placing and they harass alot

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2018

This place is a jokethey prey on those who are already at a disadvantage and then push you to take loan after loan for programs that are overpriced and sub-standard! How is this place even in business... my program was a waste of time and money! It all started with my first visit to that prison-looking place. I should have turned around and ran immediately!!! I mean, what actual school brings you in for a tour and then the woman assigned to advise me asked inappropriate questions about my age, family, the status of my relationship with my childs fatherand then pushed me into the financial aid office within the first 30min. Once I was approvedmeaning they can bleed my student loan allowance dry, she shoves a pile of papers in my face and basically badgers me to sign up. The campus is literally 2 dirty floors of a rundown building in the crack den of Clearwater. AgainI blame this whole experience and the debt Im now in (without an actual career in the dental field at all to show for it, since Im now working in CVS earning $10/hr) on these so called admissions advisors!!!! These people are not trained.. and they bully you into enrolling in this awful place. I only went in to take a tour after being hounded and harassed for weeks with calls (up to 5-6x per day) to my cell phone. Bottom line: dont waste your money and go to a REAL SCHOOL! This place should be SHUT DOWN!

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2019

The actual learning part of this school's online program was amazing. The student Advisors were a bit clingy, despite me telling them I do not do well being bothered. I never missed days, and I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. It wasn't until I was enrolled in their nightmare-inducing department they call 'Career services' that I realized this place may, in fact, be insane. I have had four different 'advisors', and have been talked down to, offered jobs that I did not even remotely qualify for, and dealt with the most asinine and unprofessional people I'd never even wish on my worst of enemies. This place has countlessly placed me in for jobs without my knowledge or even in a city I could get to easily. They have even sent me into a job interview knowing I did not have the proper licenses to work there for a potential job, just to be laughed out of the place. This school needs to be reviewed with a fine tooth comb and see if they're even worthy of being considered a school. At this point, it feels more like wasted time and effort dealing with their mind-numbing stupidity.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2020

I was told that my disbursement check was cut and mailed on 2/28/19 it is now 3/19/19 and i have yet to receive it and i have called multiple times and all i get is "it was put in the mail allow 7-10 business days" I spoke with the post master in Tampa as well as in Florissant where I live and I also have mail watch and I was told that either the school has prepared it and not sent it or it was just never sent. Then the school tells me that after 15-business days that they can stop payment and cut me a new check which will be another three week process. What I dont understand is that UMA mailed me a student id card that was dated 3/8/19 and i received it 3/11/19. I receive books, and binders that they mail within three days but a check I have not received. No management seems to care about my "check" Im going to report this to everyone I can. DO NOT ENROLL HERE! I had told my friends about it and they were interested in enrolling but I will be sure to let them know not to. This is sad because I believe that they did not mail my check. They should have mailed the check priority. and or mail my new one that way. I am going to call the place that I took the loan out from and report this!

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2019

I'm not too sure what to say about UMA. Everything started out great and then went sideways. I have also even caught several of the advisors in lies, but now that I'm in, I'm in. When I first started UMA, I began with the Human Services Program. I went through some life events that caused me to postpone my education, but quickly went back. During my re-enrollment, I changed majors and graduated in October 2018 with my diploma. I didn't want to stop there, so due to a new job I had incurred, I decided to just continue going and get my Associate's degree in Human Services. I was put through a cat and mouse chase with trying to continue my education. I was given a new student advisor who stated to me on more than one occassion that I should not change my majors and just graduate with my degree in the current program I just graduated with my diploma in because I was only 2 classes away from the degree. So, me thinking logically, I agreed, thinking that I would graduate with my degree in that program, and still have pretty much all the credits needed to still obtain my other degree. So I completed the "last 2 classes" in January 2019, and to my surprise, I get an email about the 2nd week in February alerting me to missing assignments, attendance violation, etc. Come to find out, I still had 8 more classes to go to get my degree in that program which was pretty much close to the same amount of time to complete the degree I wanted. So now I complete that course and have my paperwork fixed to where I can get into the correct program in April 2019 (was supposed to be February 25, 2019. But there is a catch here as well. I specifically told my new advisor (3rd one since November) that I did not want to take classes that DID NOT pertain to the degree that I wanted to pursue. She reassured me twice that the classes I am currently enrolled in and the other I had just completed were needed for the other program as well. To my surprise, the classes are NOT included in the degree that I want at all. So now i'm pretty much paying for classes and an education that I do not want, on top of them wanting me to pay out-of-pocket.

Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2019

Furthering my education at Ultimate Medical Academy is one of the best choices I could have made in my life. I am currently a 4.0 student, a member of the ABK, and also an Ambassador for UMA. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in a medical career. The staff is great and always just a phone call or email away ready to assist you.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2014

I started off liking the school. It was a great way to get my education while working full time and raising kids. I graduated, got my licenses, and asked them for the help they claimed they provided alumni. Lets get this straight. ITS THE WORST HELP EVER!!! they took my very impressive resume and made it worthless. The listed licenses i didn't have, took away YEARS of work experience and added skill I knew nothing about. I've had potential employers tell me to re-write my resume b/c it looks REALLY bad that i have gaps in my employment (i dont, thats just what UMA did to my resume). THEN, their employment help. they sent me 1 job that i was not qualified for and that was it. I never even heard from that company again. Then, they called me a year later asking me if i still needed their help. Um... No. I found a job on my own. They asked for the information for "records purposes" and then harassed my employer asking them to hire other alumni. They didtn call them once a day. or twice. they called 4-6 times DAILY. We finally had to tell UMA to stop calling, its excessive and harassing. Recently, they contacted me to see if i was still working in my field. STUPIDLY, i answered and told them i wasnt available to talk longer b/c alas- it's christmastime and i'm eyeballs deep in wrapping paper, decorations and baking. they said no problem and they'd call me after the holidays. NOT EVEN 24 HOURS WENT BY!!!! I'm sitting at my desk at work and my boss pages me. UMA called her line DEMANDING my employment information. Then, my HUSBAND calls me. UMA contacted him (no idea how) asking him to tell me to talk to their staff about my employment. I called UMA and demanded they take me off their calling lists. they agreed and we hung up. 20 mins later, i get another call from them, but this time, there was no voicemail left. The amount of times that they call is RIDICULOUS!!!!

Degree: Medical Office Management/Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I am highly disappointed in this school. I have two degrees and a college certification from here, and I am unable to get a job. I applied for Voc Rehab from the military, and when they saw that in had all the accolades I had, and still wasn't able to land a job, it was then that I learned from the career advisors it was because I didn't complete an internship. WTF?!!! All this money wasted, and can't get a job because I didn't have an internship?!! My friend, who also attended this school, through my referral, got an associates degree, and was able to get an excellent job because she was offered an internship. She went from making $14 an hour, to being chosen for a managerial position, that would salary her for almost 55k. Meanwhile, I'm being offered cut rate a** wages for $10 an hour, because every position I apply for says that I don't have any experience under my belt. I am f*** pissed. I feel like I wasted time and money. Why wasn't I offered an intern?!! I am very angry. The only services I was offered was resume services and interviews, where I was denied anyway. I would definitely not recommend this school.
