"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."

As I approach the end of my program, I have already secured a position in my degree field due to my academic success here at UMA. I am thankful to the staff for all of their phone calls to check-in to make sure I am doing well, and especially a big Thank you to my advisor Ann Marie; she is the most caring, compassionate person that I have ever met."

"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."

My academic advisor was helpful in explaining things like the tutoring services if I needed them. Currently, I am dealing with my career advisor who is helping me to find a job.

"This school has been a blessing for me. You get out of online classes what you put in. The staff have been very helpful, but I will say that there were some that need more social skills. I truly have nothing bad to say about the school. If you plan on going back to school online, I would highly recommend UMA. Don't join though if you are not equally balanced within yourself."

"This was the best decision I've made. UMA was awesome. The staff was great and the classes were pretty easy. I graduated with a 4.0. I've seen some negative comments about calls and emails...well answering your phone or email is not a requirement. They are just calling to encourage you. They are a great support system for those that don't have any during the course of time. Make your choice based on what's good for you!!"

"This school has ruined my life and my credit. I'm halfway through my program (9 months in) and I am $18,000 in debt. Also my degree will be useless in Louisiana and my credits will not transfer. Run away from this school if they call or you'll regret it. Trust me on this. I am seeking legal action because of all the loans I had to take out unnecessarily. An associates degree should NOT cost $30,000. These people lied to me and pushed me to enroll and by the time I realized they were scamming me it was too late. Please take my advice and do NOT enroll and if you have just enrolled here, withdraw now while you are still debt free. I qualify for full government financial aid, meaning I get the MAXIMUM amount for federal grants and that was more than enough to pay my tuition. But these sharks find every way to charge more and more every semester. They will talk and build you up when you first enroll and you will love them. I did too my first semester. But don't fall for it. These people a trained to motivate you. You will also more than likely have a 3.5 or higher GPA and get praised over and over every time you talk to them. It's all a scam. Every online student is an honor roll student. Then things start to change after they have you trapped and you are thousands of dollars in debt. You can't transfer to a legitimate school because no school accepts your credits and you can't quit. To all of your that just enrolled, please think about getting out while you still have time."
