"UMA has been by my side since the beginning of the enrollment process. They have been able to walk me through the financial aid process and answer any questions that I have. The instructors are always available to answer any questions and send encouragement when things get rough. All around UMA is an amazing school and I am so proud to be apart of it."

"I am so glad I made the decision to go back to school. It was a struggle at first because I felt I was too old to go back to school. This has been a great experience for me and I can do anything as long as I put my mind to it and keep pushing! This has truly been a blessing and I am honored to be able to achieve my goals to becoming a better person with a brighter future."

"Attending UMA was the best thing I could have ever did. Before I was unsure about going back to school because I did not think I would have the time. But UMA is a self pace school and even the advisors are always welling to help throughout your classes. I am glad that I chose UMA to further my education."

"I'd like to write a completely favorable review, but I can't. I've enjoyed my classes and the work, but my issue is the policies. I've been kicked out because they've not received my diploma from the DOE. This isn't my fault but I'm being penalized for it. It stinks when you want to learn but can't because the school punishes you because an entity is slow with sending a piece of paper."

"I am currently a student at Ultimate Medical Academy, I am in school to become a Medical Administrative Assistant. The Academic Services is amazing, the instructors are amazing and you have help 24/7 with a UMA representative. I would recommend UMA to my friends and family or to anyone that’s looking to get into the medical field. You are contacted by your academic advisors to let you know what your progress is like and how well you are doing as well. The motivation you get from your advisors as well as your instructors is amazing. Enrolling at Ultimate Medical Academy has been the biggest step towards moving towards my future career and if I can do it, you can do it as well."

"I love this school online classes because they where very interesting and I had many sources of help. I was reached out to constantly especially in the being of school, the instructors, the techs, student support people reached out consistently. Ultimate Medical Academy is one of the best schools yet, I actually thought it was going to be hard because it was online but it was the best experience yet! I couldn't have done this without their support team so if your looking for a great school Ultimate Medical Academy is your school and they are very helpful and will help you succeed."

"I had an amazing experience with UMA online. I was able to juggle my busy family life and keep up with my school work. Having 4 kids that was tough but, I did it! The classes are well paced and the work load is not too overwhelming. I would recommend UMA to anyone ready to go back to school. After I graduated the career service department helped setup interviews and I had a full week of back to back interviews. I was able to pick the job that I wanted. The personal growth that I have gained from this has been priceless to me. Thank you UMA"

"I decided to attend UMA because a friend of mine told me great things about her experience at UMA. I had be attending various schools in the past and found myself becoming discouraged. I am glad that I eventually decided to attend UMA because everyone from the advisors to the actual instructors proved to be dedicated to the academic needs of their students. I would definitely recommend UMA to anyone that be interested in continuing their education. I must express that I am proud to be a UMA graduate."

"UMA is the best college i have ever attended. The coaches, instructors and advisors were so helpful. My career program was a phenomenal one. At UMA they are concerned about you, not just your career. It was a smooth transition for me. From beginning to end. I would recommend my friends to attend there. I had no issues at all, getting into the Academy. My experience with UMA was awesome. I plan on going back to get my associates. All i can say is UMA is the college of today!!"

"I have attended several schools in the past searching for a school that will have affordable tuition and the support that I need. UMA is excellent. Tuition at other schools were triple the tuition cost at UMA literally. The staff is wonderful. The staff reaches out to me at least twice a week to ensure I'm doing good in my classes and have no issues. I am on the Dean's List. My GPA is a 4.0. I'm very pleased with UMA, the cost, the support, and the training In receiving. If you are truly serious about your career blossoming and really want to help yourself, then UMA is a great place to land yourself. They'll work very hard for you to ensure you succeed if that's what you want. My books are delivered a week before class starts directly to my door by UPS. I get an email when my package is in route to my house. And, I receive am email when my books have been delivered. There are always going to be people that will find something negative to sat. But, I say if you attend UMA for your diploma, you will want to go back again for your Associates. My only issue is I can't decide which program I want to take next. And, the time it takes to complete a program is unbelievable. Go UMA!!!! Best school I have ever come across and I want everyone to feel good about the education they're receiving and from whom they're receiving it. UMA also makes it a priority to keep your student loan debt to a minimum. Most schools don't care about getting you into debt up to your neck. But, UMA won't allow you to be up to debt even to your knees more less your neck. Try UMA, BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT EARNING YOUR DIPLOMA OR DEGREE!! UMA IS PERFECT!!!"

"I want to say that I love this school. You get exactly what you put in, if you give 100% you get a 100%. The instructors are really experienced and they have office hours so you can talk or chat with them about the work for the week. The student advisors are really great, and are there to help you every step of the way and also help you if you have problems with school work or life in general.

"Okay I'm having problem with the financed department. On July 7 I ask for my refund to be released to me. Upon me asking the advisor told me that I would have sign for my refund to be release and told me it would take like four to six weeks to get the check. Well on August 4 I called back to check on later to find out that my file had been in limbo for two weeks and that some information came back that needed to be cleared up. Upon them telling this they were going to expedite my check to me. I kept calling for two weeks straight to make sure everything was a go. Well last Friday on the August 21 I called and was told by another advisor that everything clear and a check would be mailed out on the 24. I waited all week until today. I called to check and was told that I sign a document in May stating that I wanted the funds at the end of me completing the diploma program. Well I wasn't informed this in July, August. I spoke with a advisor and I guess she don't know the frustration I have been through that I guess she had a attitude also. When I ask to speak with a Supervisor she came on the phone and told me that I should have been told this before. And she could see that I have called many of times and that someone should have told me. She said once I sign a document by email which I did then she put me on hold to say that she talked to a someone in the records that cut the checks and they said I should get a check cut on Monday. Now I want to believe her but I have been trying to be patient but this is crazy. Yes I was not going to ask for the refund check because I had a job upon me applying for UMA. But I lost my job a week after class started and I need this to pay my broadband internet up to keep myself in school. I like the classes but this has been really stressful. I have switch Academic advisors since I started. I don't know who to talked to as well tell somebody cause I get a new person every two weeks. I want to finish this diploma to make a better life for my three children but this is ridiculous. I hope somebody please help me cause"

"The enrollment process for my program was a breeze. The coursework fit perfectly with my life at the time and was easy to manage with all the other things going on at that time. The content of study was right on target. All of the professors & advisors were very helpful and easy to contact. The advisors were consistently checking in to see how things were going and at times today still check in on me and how things are going. They are also very dogmatic & persistent in helping find a job within the related field of study, but could not understand some of the geographical issues of some of the placements they were trying to set up...after all they are in Florida & I am not. They simply do not know the area within the city & surrounding ones I am willing to work in and travel to. However, I have mentioned to them that I was considering continuing with the online program after my graduation from the first program, but no one from the academy has ever tried to reach out to me about that. I have told each person who has called from right before my program ended to well after graduation what my intentions were, but as I said before, no one has reached out to me. I work full time outside my field of study, but do work very part time within (sort of). I found the position on my own and it may grow into something more."
