"As a 47 year old woman who wanted to go back to school to better myself but was afraid since I had been out of school for so long, UMA made me feel I could do it and was by my side the whole way. With all the help I'm proud to say I'm now a honor student."

"Very great school. I have been attending online classes since July. It has been an easy journey since the very beginning. Everything you need is available to you with an click of a button. Staff and advisors are very useful and helpful when it comes to progression. Highly would recommend UMA to anyone who is considering starting a new career journey or advancement in healthcare to try this alternative route of learning. 5 stars for being “So Far So Good”"

When your in your first week the staff are always checking in to make sure everything is alright and to make sure your not having any issues with anything."

"I am so excited that I chose to Ultimate Medical Academy. This program has enabled me to learn more of myself and what I would do in real life situations and how I would react to situations of chaos and praise. Let's be clear, in real life not everything is lemonade, we sometimes get lemons. My experience has enabled me to grow as a human and actively learn and appreciate my work ethic and growth."

"This was the absolute worse educational establishment I have ever been a part of. From counselors, to instructors to classroom interaction. If you are trying to get a degree where you actually learn something DO NOT GO HERE! The classes are a joke, the only worth while part would have been the discussion portion but it felt more like being on a social media tread, even from instructors responses. If you need help or want clarification, you cannot count on the instructors who never get back to you, and depending on your counselor you may be left without any true advising. When I was actually able to get a hold of my advisor, which was not often, I was given misleading and incomplete information which left me in a predicament where I was forced to withdrawal from school and left with an outrageous fee for learning absolutely nothing."

"My experience at UMA has built my confidence that I can still grow academically and learn new things. I am blown away by how the Admissions process was a piece of cake with guidance through the start of my classes. The Instructors care enough to help and see their students succeed. I have taken college classes where the instructors did not care if you passed or failed, or even showed up to class. An individual needs to put forth the effort and time to study, but the tutorials and interactives help reinforce the chapters. I will always recommend UMA and its caring staff and faculty to anyone considering postsecondary education!"

"Doing the online classes at UMA was the best experience of my life. I wish I has started sooner with finding UMA. Graduating has fulfilled my dreams of being a college graduate. I am now working in a field that I have always enjoyed. Caring for others has been my lifelong calling and UMA has helped me to continue in this endeavor. I appreciate all the help I received from my instructors and the staff at UMA. They are wonderful at what they do. Thank you UMA for making my dreams come true."

"Ultimate Medical Academy is a great institution. The online program (Health & Human Services) definitely ensures that every health care professional is equipped and prepared for a career after graduation. The advisors and instructors are hands on and they assure me throughout the courses that they are always available for questions and/or concerns that I may have. My advisor is great and motivating me and encouraging me through each course I take. It’s has been amazing experience that I will never forget."

"Ultimate Medical Academy is a great school to enroll in if you want to have a career in the medical field. They offer support in every major way for example assignments, quizzes, personal and financial issues. They also have a staff of people who love their jobs and students and have very good communication skills. I highly recommend giving them a try."

"When I decided to go back to school I knew UMA was the right fit for me. The people here are encouraging and will help you in any way possible. They offer many services to help you with course work as well as with your career. They even help with finding a job for you after completion. You are only required to attend three days a week which was ideal for my life. I would recommend UMA to anyone who is looking to further their education."

"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."

"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."
