"UMA is an excellent school without their help I would not be in the position I am now where I am about to graduate. The whole team at UMA is super supportive by the way they help you in every step from starting up to graduating. This was the best descion I have made by going back to get a degree."

"How do you write a review for a school that everyone knows about already and agrees? Well I am one of many students who have been going to this school for several months and are maintaining great grades. We couldn't have done this without their support !"

"My experience with UMA was awesome, they show they care from start to finish. UMA was there for me from beginning to end, matter of fact they still sticking by my side. I struggled and didn’t think I could do it being a single mom of two kids. But UMA showed me I can do it. They help you when you need it and even if you don’t they offer the help. I’m not saying college was easy but you learn so much. The program I chose was hard but I succeeded with they help if I didn’t understand. If you want to go to a great and awesome school then UMA is right for you. I couldn’t do it without them. They call to check on you about your classes or just even how your day is going. Come on now who wouldn’t want to come to this school? Because I know I had the best experience. Now I can say I’m UMA Proud !!! Go Pumas"

"UMA is a wonderful school with a lot of helpful staff and resources. As a working wife and mother the online courses make having a college education and career that I love a reality. If it wasn't for the availability of these courses online there is no way I would be able to further my education at this time in my life. Also, every time I need help with anything there is always someone available from UMA to assist, day or night. I would highly recommend UMA as a top choice in furthering your medical/healthcare education."

"At first, I admit that I was skeptical of going back to school at age 41, because of the number of years it had been since I had any type of formal education. I was a divorced Mom whose only son had just graduated from High School and had no real direction, after all, I had been just "Mom" since I was 18 years old. Stephanie from admissions had called and truly inspired me. She was thoughtful, patient, energetic, and took the time to answer every single question I asked thoroughly. I was then contacted by Financial Aid, and was equally as impressed by the time spent to explain the loan process to me. Every single Advisor, Instructor, Financial Aid Counselor, etc. that I have encountered along my journey has treated me with nothing but respect, courtesy, and a positive attitude. I have been able to call, text, and email all of my Instructors, at any given time, for guidance, support, and to answer my questions the entire time I have been a UMA student. Discussion forums and a broad social network of fellow UMA students have helped me to feel like I am not alone in this. I would also like to add that their slogan that "UMA Cares" is a fact that I have experienced on two of the scariest days of my life. The first being the sudden death of my Mother on Christmas last year, only two months after I enrolled. The second was on my 41st birthday, September 14th, when I suffered a Myocardial Infarction (or heart attack) and had to have surgery to place a stent in the artery that supplies blood to the actual heart muscle. It was terrifying because I had 100% blockage and nearly did not survive. The concern and genuine affection I felt from UMA staff was overwhelming and I will never forget it as long as I live. I am proud to say that, despite the most difficult obstacles I have ever faced, I was able to maintain my 4.0 GPA. I was accepted into the Alpha Beta Kappa Honor Society and I am an official UMA Ambassador! I graduate in just a few short months and I hope that my story will help you all to see that if you really want a purpose and need direction, then UMA is the school to guide you. It has been the best decision of my life, and truth be told, UMA is a fantastic place to gain your diploma or degree. There are those that do not take full advantage of the resources provided, and they may try to sway you away from UMA, but do not allow them to discourage you. It is a huge decision and your life will be forever changed, so do not let others make your life's decisions for you, myself included. I can only tell my story and hope that someday I may read yours here. Thank you for your time,"

"I would say in all honesty, UMA is a great school to attend. They have your back through the end and even after you graduate. The tuition is inexpensive than majority of the other schools that have you paying an arm and a leg for. Also, UMA have great selections of majora to choose from. You also, receive reminders of when assignments are due every course and you also get to be apart of something great. I love it here and my graduation is next year in the spring. All you have to do is stay focus, be on time, and ask questions. Don't feel like you have to do this journey alone because you don't. This school is very understanding and they care. They are hers for you no matter what. You just have to speak and be clear on what you're not clear on and you shall receive your answer. Finally, when it comes down to job replacement, this school will support you and get you working in your field of study. I don't know what some of the reviews is speaking on but this school Ultimate medical academy great on saying they will support you on helping you get a job inyour field but you also have to have a part into knowing where you want to be and also put out your resumes as well not just the school. It goes hand in hand. Overall, I've recommended several people to this school and they say they love it and its a game changer for them and they will recommend others as well. Everything about this school has changed me. I have a 4.0 and always making the Dean's List since 2018. So I did it and succeeded you can too. Sometimes you have to go with your gut and ezperiences instead of reading or listening to what others have to say because you could be missing out on a great opportunity in its entirety."

"They discriminate. They disqualified me for a 14 year old misdemeanor. I already have an associates with honors. What a shame they can't further my aspirations. They have wasted alot of my time. Don't apply if you have misdemeanors no matter how old."

Hi Kyle - Thank you for reaching out to us. A criminal background check is an enrollment requirement at Ultimate Medical Academy and we include a disclosure in our enrollment packet to gather consent and provide information about the process. Many healthcare positions require a background check before hiring and our goal is to avoid enrolling students who may not be able to pass a background check satisfactorily when seeking employment in their field of study after graduation.

If you have any questions about the admissions process, please reach out to our UMA Cares Team at 800-509-5474 and we would be happy to discuss in more detail with you.

I told tge lady that i would like to find my own job i no longer needed their help and today my mom tells me that the lady called her phone. That is harassing, thats something you dont do.

"Furthering my education at Ultimate Medical Academy is one of the best choices I could have made in my life. I am currently a 4.0 student, a member of the ABK, and also an Ambassador for UMA. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in a medical career. The staff is great and always just a phone call or email away ready to assist you."
