"I have had a great time getting my specialist's diploma from UMA. I was able to work independently and at my own pace which is my style of working. If I had any questions, an instructor was easily accessible. I would recommend UMA to anyone who's looking to get their diploma or degree, especially in the medical field."

"This college makes promises and does not do what they promise. They promise you will get a job and they will help you find a job and I have been years still searching and no one will hire me. They say my certificate means nothing. Also keep trace of your loans because for one class they took out three loans in my name which means you will be paying on three loans for the rest of your life. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL, ITS A SCAM!!!!!!!"

"Unfortunately this school is extremely rude. I got called unprofessional for asking not to have 8 calls texts and emails in less than 7hrs. I was also called unprofessional because someone called me and because I couldn't hear anything more than static they texted me stating I was unprofessional. The call center you speak too laughs at you when you have a problem, you get the run around and when asking for management.. It's a joke! Over priced and RUDE!"

"The course were very interesting and challenging; however when it came time for the school to help me find a job as promised they were not there for me. I aced the exam. Every time I called career services to help with the tools in finding a job no one was there. Too many promises and deliveries. Would not recommend this school to anyone. I have since found a job in another field. The loan was a waste of money,"

"UMA has always made an attempt to make sure I was keeping up with my work. When I had called in with a concern, it didn't take "the team" long to get back with the answer. Everyone was so bright and cheerful, always knew how to give praise! I love how you could call in and be so frustrated about something and by the time you were done on the phone with learner services, you could be laughing. I feel like they all put me as a person and not a number...to some people that is very important. I'm very glad that UMA puts me, my education, all straight up on the top of the totem pole! Thanks UMA, YOU ALL ROCK!!!"
Ashonta Johnson - 4/26/2016

"It was very easy to get started. They called me and I found out that my program could be covered by grants and a student loan. I spoke with admissions just 3 weeks before my class started on 9-7-15. I am still currently in my program, graduating in June. The process was very easy, got my books via UPS just a week before school started. The helped me start off with success. I love this school. A lot of the student comments that I have seen say that you get what you put in. It is totally true. I give 100% in all my classes and I am currently on the Dean's List. I have never been on the Dean's list before and it is very exciting. Having an honor like that will definitely give me confidence when I go job hunting. The only thing I can say is that there was some shortage of communication in regards to getting new books for my next course. Other than that, great school and staff."
Ashonta - 2/10/2016

"I really regret even taking these classes. I feel like it's all about the money. It's ALL A JOKE. Also, the career service advisors are so rude and did not help me to get a job. I have no car and I was told that I would be provided with an uber to make it to interviews, but whenever I needed one the advisors would be rude and they'd give me attitudes. Big mistake"

"UMA is a great school. I finished my diploma in May of this year. Now I am working on my Associate's. They have helped with everything, from financial aid to interview practice. I have even been set for interviews. They stick with you the whole time. Ive read some reviews and if I'm not working 2 years from now I'm not calling UMA for a job. They did their part already. My next step is my certification and my Bachelor's. UMA is great!!!!"

"The school is great and not once did I have a bad experience with them. My advisor is awesome. She helped me every step of the way with finishing school. Right now I am in the process of completing my diploma program. I will be finished in one week and the school is  awesome. I will be attending to further my education. They were never misleading and gave me the answers I needed and completely honest about everything. I would recommend this school to everyone I know."

"This is a great school and program. I highly recommend it. The advisors and staff are eager to help you out. I enjoy it and am going to continue on to get my associates degree. I could not have asked for a better school to have chosen me as a student to attend their school."
