"I attended UMA not realizing if I was going to like it or not. Once I got started on the program I realized that this was something I really was good at. I am getting my associate degree in Healthcare Management. The financial aid department was very helpful. I had to be transferred a few times to get problems solved but, in the end they were resolved efficiently and effectively. The academic coaching is wonderful. I couldn't tell you how many times I used them. The professors and staff were excellent. They give you the materials you need, and they provide extra websites and materials that help get you through. The professors are very willing to help you through any issues you may have to make sure you succeed. Overall, I have never regretted going to this school. I think they are very well adapted to today's studies. You have to remember that if you take online classes, they aren't easy. If it were easy, you really wouldn't learn anything. You have to be dedicated and committed to do the work and really reach out if you are struggling. They are there to help you push through. I love this school and like I said, I have no regrets at all."

"This school is a joke. No decent paying place of employment will hire people from this school. Towards the end i figured out you can reset your attendance with a discussion or extra credit then do all 5 weeks work in one day and still very an A in the class. If you do that the teachers don't even read your response they just give you a decent grade for everything you submit. They call your phone 5 times in a row a couple times a day every single day. It is ridiculous. You tell them you work nights don't bother me they ring your phone by 9am. Financial aid messes award letters up. It is a waste of time and an even bigger waste of money. You can get a better education at a community college for a fraction of the cost."

"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"

"Every since the day I signed up at UMA, my life has been wonderful. I still hold a GPA average of a 4.0 since i started back in August 2015. UMA have been the only school to help me in everything since day one and they are always calling to check in to make sure everything is okay. This school, so far has been the best school I have ever attended. All the staff and instructors are so nice and always there for you. If you are looking for another chance at school or even just looking for the first time, then UMA is the place to be. Don't hesitate, they just one call away."

"I have been very happy with UMA Enrollment was easy, and classes have been fantastic. I enjoy the instructors I have had. My only issue would be that I would like to hear more from my advisor. I make straight A's so I don't require as much attention, but I would still like to know that I'm a priority. Great School and happy to be a part of it."

"I enrolled in Ultimate Medical Academy in April of 2015. I enrolled after much deliberation as to what I was going to enroll in and what exactly I wanted to pursue as far as a career goal. In short, I don't regret making the decision to enroll at UMA, I have maintained a 4.0 GPA since day one. The instructors were very knowledgeable, and the career advisors were also very helpful. I would recommend UMA to anyone who wants to pursue their degree(s) to choose UMA, it is well worth the investment."

"I started UMA in September 2015, and it was the best decision ever. The staff and instructors care about your well beings to be successful in the program. Getting started with them was a "Breeze". Starting at the financial aid department, we all know it can be a hassle at times, but UMA made it a piece of cake. I have been on the dean's list, maintaining a grade point average of 4.0. Special thanks to UMA's advisory department and instructors for their extended blessings for helping me make my dream into reality. "Want to make a life change, enroll with UMA"."

"I have previously taken classes related to healthcare. I got my Billing & Coding Certificate from my local community college about 9 years ago. I've also been employed in the healthcare field for the past 8 years. UMA insisted that I take classes (college English, college math & medical terminology)I had already taken to get my Billing & Coding Certificate in order to get my associate's degree. Also, when I let my advisor know that one course was completely about the Practice Management system I used every day at work and I would like an opportunity to test out of the class, I was told that wasn't an option. What a waste of 5 weeks and several hundred dollars, I got 100% and never even opened the book. Due to the online nature of the program, all my professors stressed proper grammar and spelling; however, I had one professor that had absolutely awful grammar. After graduation, they contacted me on numerous occasions to verify the same information over and over because they couldn't get it right in their system. Had I known then what I know now, that they are not accredited by the BBB or even accredited in every state, would have taken them off my short list of schools."

"I started attending UMA in June 2015, I had just finished my medical assistant program and I was trying to decide what to do next. I spoke to a wonderful advisor and she informed me with all my background and training this would be the next step. I have enjoyed my time with UMA and have had such wonderful advisors. I was able to be apart of something big with joining the ambassador program, dean's list and ABK honor society. UMA is the way to go if your looking to further your education."

"UMA was a great fit for me. Their online program allowed me to accomplish my goals. The student service person assigned to me kept me motivated and encouraged. The student services helped me to feel strong about my abilities to start my new career. The whole experience for me was great. I wish I could've have gotten my Bachelors with UMA, but they didn't have a program available in my chosen career field. Alas I had to obtain it at another school."

"I have enjoyed going to UMA. I started in May 2015. I have had great instructors. They have always gotten back to me if I had a problem with a class. My academic advisor was fantastic. He would send up lifting emails everyday. Sometimes I had days when I just didn't want to continue but the emails would snap me right back. I have been out of school for a long period of time and was not sure how this was going to work for me. Going online allowed me to work at my own pace even though I had time lines for assignments to be submitted. I have not worked in a while and I wanted to go back out into the work force. I will graduate on Sept. 10,2016. I have confidence in myself as well as the school that they will help me in finding a job. There are quite of few reviews that could be discouraging. But I was taught that your life depends solely on you. You get what you put in. I would recommend UMA to my friends and family."

"I'm a current student and I am very pleased. I'm new to the field and the advisors help me to gain a volunteer position that coincides with my degree. Now I am a few steps closer to a better career. Though they didn't help me get the volunteer position, they did advise that I gain experience that way. I ended up landing a position that can turn into a permanent position. I'm going into my fourth term and I'm maintaining a 4.0 GPA. The school I'm transferring to receive my bachelors is accepting all my credits. Thank God I made this choice. I will have a career and be able to support me and my daughter. Thank you Uma!!! Class of 2016!!"

They really want me to succeed and become the best healthcare manager in the industry. The preparation that is given from the professional staff interviewers to land the first job is superb!
