"I was told about Ultimate Medical Academy from my husbands niece,the first course I took was Medical Bill and Coding with a Diploma and an Associates Degree and then I decided to take a Substance and Chemical Abuse Counselor and I will graduate with that in February 2018 ending with an Associates Degree. And I can shout it to the world that I have had a wonderful time attending this school, my advisors, professors ,and teachers were the always there for me some times they would get back with in a couple of hours and under their profile it clearly states that they have 24 hours to get back with you. UMA is the best school that I have ever gone to online , I hate that my course is almost over...Thank you UMA for the tools I need to be very successful in my career of choice you all were of great support for me..."

"Being new to the US and seeking employment in my specialized field of business administration, I realized very quickly that that area was already populated and finding a job in that area was going to be futile. Having decided that I needed to change my career focus to allied healthcare and seek training in the area, I was directed to UMA online degrees. I started in May of 2016 not knowing what to expect or where/how the tuition would be paid, but I was already in. I hit the ground running with a 4.0 GPA from the first course to the last, making Dean's list every semester until I graduated in July 2017. As it relates to the financial management of my studies, I am not satisfied with the transparency of the Student Finance dept. But everybody's experience is different. Overall, whenever I encountered issues I made sure to voice my disapproval and did not rest until the matter was resolved. The coursework was overwhelming sometimes, but help was always available to online students and some Instructors took their role seriously in terms of ensuring that the students finish strong. Having graduated and now moved into Alumni status, the Career Advisers have been very helpful in trying to point me to jobs that would best assist me in putting the technical knowledge into practical experience. Due to personal choices, I had taken a break from the job hunting for a few weeks but is now ready to refocus my efforts in allowing UMA to assist me in finding that job that will launch me into the healthcare industry. Overall, UMA has helped me gather the requisite knowledge I will need to move forward in my career. Problems will always exist with EVERY institution and if you sit and nit-pick about everything, you lose sight of your goals and everybody's experience will be different. If you need an institution to assist you to meet your educational goals, UMA is the place to be."

"My experience with UMA was amazing right from the beginning when I started taking my online courses. I received great support and encouragement from the advisors and teachers at UMA. I went thru a tough ordeal when I lost 4 family members including my mom during my schooling and it was hard keeping up for awhile but the advisors were so supportive and helped me to stay positive during this time and would not let me give up. I know that they went above and beyond just to keep me going thru my classes and cheered me on to finish and graduate. I am very thankful and humbled that I had the encouragement from such amazing individuals at UMA. When I graduated I was so overcome with joy and they helped me celebrate my success even after the loss of my mom who was a UMA alumni as well. They believe in their students and the families they are building their futures for and I truly appreciate their support. I would DEFINITELY recommend anyone who is seeking a career in healthcare to give UMA a chance to prove they can lead you to success. They are there to empower individuals to be at their best and they care about the students and families. I owe so much to the great and amazing people at UMA. They helped me to look toward a better future for my daughter's and I and as a single mother that's important. Thank you so much to ALL departments at UMA who were with me every step of the way."

"Honestly, this College called Ultimate Medical Academy really saved my life. This Teresa Marie Kitchen is very thankful for the education that UMA.com has provided for me and I hope to be working soon to help repay back my college tuition? My Instructors gave a good first IMPRESSION. Maybe I would of liked to have been more organized to get better grades but I made the dean's list and never thought that I would be going the distance in my life to do that! Also, I am concerned about my school loans that I did take out to pay for my college tuition because I don't totally feel well informed about how much I need to repay and I am not knowing why when I took out loans, where did the money go? Other than that I asked if my school transcripts could be sent to a new college because I was wanting to give another college job opportunity to help train me and I have not heard back from UMA.com student adviser about my transcript's ? Other than that I have had a really great experience here at UMA.com and would suggest this college to anyone. Hopefully my own daughter "AUDRA" will be encouraged to join UMA.com to learn to earn a college Associates degree? I love my little girl very much and hope that she will enjoy this college education at UMA as much as her Birth Mother Teresa Marie Kitchen. I LOVE this College! YOUR AWESOME UMA.com!"

"I see all these differwnt comments and am shocked. I see some say the people don't care but I have a great response to that. I had a very best experience with UMA. I was in a car wreck and they helped me out ALOT. I am still going threw therapy to get back to normal and trust me it was hard. UMA stuck by my side and help me. They understood what I was going threw and even though I couldn't do much, they were always great with me. I took the classea to prove to my kids that at any age or no matter what you go threw they were always there. Helping me and pushing me to better myself. I had great instructors and great advisors by my side the whole way. It was the best experience I have ever had with a school. They were patient with me no matter what was happening to me. If I can't get a job in the career that I studied I know I did it. I finished what I was trying to accomplish. I would recommend UMA to anyone. It was great."

"I absolutely love UMA the best choice I ever made in my life. I need a online school because I am a single mother and I came across UMA. I graduated in March of 2017 with my associates degree in medical billing and coding. I found a job in June, and when I told the school I found a job in my field. They sent me gifts and a card congratulating me. Call me with everybody in the background cheering me on. It was such a great feeling. Love UMA hope you find this review helpful. be blessed =)"

"I would not got to this one they make it sound good because it is a online degree program , but in turn the cost is so high you walk away owed loans about 50,000 this is after the deplete your Pell grants and any other grants. I kept telling them that they were charging me more than what the program costed and every time they just said no this is correct. And no courses from this college will transfer to a another college so if your wanting to further your career you have to start all over again. I think that the federal government should step in and refund have UMA refund all of their students the cost that they spent. There should be something that little people can do to get help."
