Best decision I've ever made - 7/26/2017
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

"I was looking for an education that would allow me to serve those less fortunate, especially the children. I was basically surfing the web looking for a place I thought would suite me. I had turned down a few who just did not feel right. When UMA called it was as if everything just clicked and I was on my way. Since I have been with UMA not once did I feel I was on my own. The instructors and advisors and all who I have had the opportunity to speak with has always encouraged me and took the time to answer any and all my questions. I have even met some really great fellow students that have been with me in a lot of courses. I have no dought at all that UMA was where I was to be and I truly believe anyone looking for a college where they are given a chance to get their degree with plenty of people on their side needs to attend UMA. I will forever be Grateful for their support in my obtaining my degree."

"I leaned about UMA just around the time where I was thinking I may not even go to college. UMA encouraged me to apply, and their online "campus" was the perfect opportunity that I needed to get back on track. I am getting ready to graduate this September and have had a great experience at UMA. I have gotten the help that I needed from Academic Coaches and Financial Aid, have a great Learner's Advisor, and I am ready to graduate with my Associate's degree in my desire field - Health and Human Services."

"This school is a joke. I was told I would get money after so many months and now I'm told I won't. The homework I have now has nothing to do with what you read. I would never go to this school again or recommend it and now come to find out its not even an accredited school."
Ashonta Johnson - 5/24/2016

"I am currently a very satisfied student with UMA. I be he had my moments of frustration, but I have never been let down during these times, unless it's been me not reaching out. I'm truly sorry for any bad experiences anyone has had. I don't see any in my future and have had no warning signs yet. Online is a bit more difficult for me, I have to put extra effort into my commitment, but I LOVE it. Hopefully in 2016 when I graduate, I will have more great things to share."
