"UMA is an amazing school that has been very easy to maneuver from home. The support staff is very friendly and helpful. Plus their broad availability times help when you can't do coursework during traditional school hours. Even though I am doing remote learning, my classmates, instructor and I are still very much together. It really does have a structured classroom feel with the ease of doing it on my own schedule."

"Apply to UMA was the best decision I ever made. My advisors are very helpful and dedicated with helping me become a successful student. I am enrolled in the Medical Billing and Coding program. My instructors are willing to help and the coursework is easy to understand. I can’t want to graduate next year and start my new career in the healthcare field."

"Do not go to Ultimate Medical Academy. They will give you classes that are NOWHERE near what you need to succeed in the Healthcare Field. After Donating 20,000 to the NAACP they fired at least 6 black people from the career services department while they preached about supporting their employees. They do not care about you as a Student, Employee, Faculty ETC. They only see you as a paycheck. Don't just trust me Read Every Review."

"The school cares about me and my progress. The advisors and staff are very helpful and encouraging. They want to see me succeed. The only thing I would change is the way they schedule classes. I would have liked it better if my core classes, the ones that are most relevant to what I need to know for my future career, were all scheduled together towards the end of my program so that the information would be freshest. Instead some of my medical classes and coding classes were spread apart with other classes in between."

"UMA is an amazing school. You feel like a part of a family. The instructors are quick to respond and extremely helpful. When they see your determination to succeed it just pushes them further to help you in ways unimaginable. The learner services department stays on top of checking in on you regularly and congratulating you on your success to that point. They help you stay focused and if you miss a couple of days check to make sure everything is okay."

"HI! UMA is awsome. They helped me take that jump. Something I have put off for years. And then they kept me motivated throughout my classes. There is always lots of support. And having online classes makes it so much easier for anyone's schedule. They always remind you of your goals. They never make you feel like you have a dumb question. They are even there for you if you just need to vent. They have great online tools that makes studying easier and your instructors are always right there to offer you any advice or help. I'm still taking classes but am so excited in my future. If I took the jump so can you."

"My experience with UMA has been great!! There is a lot to learn in each class in 5 weeks. You will learn how to manage time and prior your life. I have had a lot going on such going to therapy 3 times a week, keeping grandson twice a week for several hours while daughter went to class, started new job working 3 days a week and schoolwork. The Roadmaps help me stay on track with my work. I have learned how to get everything done between Sunday afternoon and Saturday morning so I can spend time with husband when he comes home Saturday afternoon. School is very important however family is too. The online classes allows you to work the class in wherever your schedule allows it. I found late night work best for me to do my schoolwork. The convenience and flexibility of the online classes is fabulous!! This is the way to go if you have a full life. I messed up twice on 2 different assignments with 2 different instructors and both were understanding and allowed me to resubmit my assignment."

"A complete waste of time and money. I completed the medical billing and coding certificate/ associate degree program in 2012 and haven’t gotten a job yet. Now I have a huge loan that I can’t afford to pay and can’t get a job. I feel completely bamboozled. I wasted my time not to mention my self confidence. I felt happy about completing something and can’t use it."

"A overwhelming amount of the staff and teachers at Ultimate Medical Academy have been amazing during my time online with this school. The advisors are always friendly and help you every way they can, in fact it was one of the advisors that made me realize going back to school could happen while being a single mom and only being able to do online classes. I have never had a problem communicating with the staff, especially teachers they are always there to answer your assignment questions or make sure you have all the help you need. I would recommend Ultimate Medical Academy to anyone who is thinking about going to school whether right after high school or even if it has been a few years since high school, they will welcome you with open arms, and make you feel right at home there."
