Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."
