"Every instructor I have had in my few months have been amazing. Their dedication to my education have been top notch. They are very fair with grading and are willing to help if I am ever in need. The Learner Services are amazing. If I ever feel like I'm struggling they are there to assist me. They also bring my confidence up wth the amount of praise I receive. The congratulate me on a job well done as well as my grades. I know if I'm ever in trouble they are there to assist me. They are a big part in my 4.0 GPA."

"Here at UMA, I have had nothing but great advisors and instructors, they help me with whatever problems that may arise. Whether it is my personal problems or some problem with any of my academics, they are always available to help me. They helped with my financial aid and registration. And they continued to help me with any questions I had with my classes. I am having a great time learning here as the curriculum is such as to make it a fun learning class. And that goes for all the courses I have already taken. I would recommend anyone wanting to go into the medical field to check out UMA and all they have to offer you as a student. Thanks and I hope you will join us here at UMA! Thanks, Brenda Bailey"

"UMA is a great school that cares for their students. I’m currently enrolled there and have great support from all staff such as the instructors, student advisors and academic services. One of the best things about of this school is that everyone make sure you succeed in your program by offering lots of help on school assignments and other resources to help you out. If your interested in working in the healthcare field I would recommend UMA."

"From the very beginning of me attending UMA, it was such an easy process. Everyone was so nice and very helpful. I love the way the counselors would call and check on me, but my very favorite part was when they called and gave me kudos. If I ever needed help with an assignment or had computer issues, someone was always available to help."

"I am a stay at home mother to 3 kids under the age of 4 and I knew I needed to do something for myself with school. I have always been thinking of going to school for Medical Billing and Coding. I came across UMA did my research and finally got myself enrolled in school. I am currently going into my 13th week of school and I have to say all my instructors that I have had so far have been amazing and always there to help when help is needed. As I am currently doing my school work after I submit work I feel so accomplished and proud of myself."

"I chose UMA because it gave me the chance to get a degree and still be at home with my daughter. It has surely been a struggle at times trying to juggle everyday life and college work but I made it happen. UMA gave me the knowledge of how to schedule my life with my school work. Being diagnosed with MS in December made me feel like giving up on school but with the help of my advisor I made it through. I'm proud to say that I graduate on June 12th I made it. My advice to anyone who may think it's to late take the step in the right direction your life is not over yet."

"my experience at UMA has been great so far!! They are on top of things and will call me often to make sure I don't have questions or need anything, my student advisor is pretty cool, but for the most part I just know what is expected of me each week, and ik where to turn if I have Q's. I'm so excited to graduate in 2022!! Finally some stability in my life, I would highly recommend anyone who's serious about a positive move in their life, should get in UMA and create a future for themselves!! There's plenty to choose from!!"

"UMA has been by my side since the beginning of the enrollment process. They have been able to walk me through the financial aid process and answer any questions that I have. The instructors are always available to answer any questions and send encouragement when things get rough. All around UMA is an amazing school and I am so proud to be apart of it."

"At first the calling were to much, they would call nonstop all day and night to check up on me. I than had to tell my advisor that I do have a life outside of school so if I don't answer the first time leave a voicemail and don't call me servals time out the week. I believe 1-2x out of the week is good enough to check up on the student and the success they are at. Financial Aid isn't much help, you have to call them to see if you will be getting a refund for attending school. If I was a first time student they definitely would of held the extra money instead of sending to you on time. Lastly I will like to discuss the online attending, I believe we should have 1say out of the week for zoom lesson. Instead of having to do everything on our own. 9x out 10 people are to shy to reach out to professor and that is why they end up failing or dropping out. It will be a great edition. Some of the emails the professors sends out ARE OVERWHELMING BACK TO BACK EMAILS OF CLASSWORK. Everyday they are sending out emails. I don't even know how to opt out of it. Other than that I enjoyed my advisor but she supposed to change soon (new policies from the school) this will be the 3rd one and I'm only 2months into school, Wooh the confusion and the relationship built is now gone. I still believe we should only have to log in 2x out a week (like Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday) because again due to outside life it get stressful trying to multitask and find time."

"I’m really enjoying being in school and the advisors are great. They’re always checking on the students and motivating us. Motivation is definitely needed because some students have more obstacles than others. The enrollment process is really easy and they help you every step of the way."

"I love how involved you student advisor is and how they show that they care. Heather calls at least twice a week to keep me motivated. Without her bubbly personality i dont know where I would be with school. You can call for help with assignments and the instructors are great at giving you information."

"I was at a time in my life where I was in need of a change of careers. When I started UMA, I had just lost my mother a few days before starting classes at UMA. It was very hard at first learning about some of the things that my mother died from, but at the same time it was very healing. UMA has helped me stay focused on what I am wanting to achieve for myself, they have been by my side every step of the way. The advisors help you out as much as they can and if they can not help you they will get someone who can. The instructors are also great, they answer you with in 24hrs and to me that is the best. Lets not forget to mention that UMA will help with your resume, help find you a job, and they are there any time you need help. I know going to an accredited school and having a 4.0 GPA is school will look better on me than not having any education at all in the medical department. UMA is helping me start my life over with a new out look and I am very confident in myself after goin to this school. I think UMA is a great school for medical billing and coding, you learn everything you can think of. I had some classes for medical terminology, computer classes, EMR records, and plenty more. It is a great school to attend, one other thing that helped me out a lot was my advisors being kind to me and letting me know that my mom would be so proud of me for working so hard and keeping my 4.0 GPA. I know that they never knew my mom, but when someone has a big enough heart to know that your mom would be proud is a very big deal to me. Going through school and morning your family is not a easy task to do, but with UMA's help I am almost done with my Associates degree. Thank You UMA for helping me, standing by me to help me, and always having a kind heart. Iva Morgan"
