"After only being in this school for 1 semester I feel like anything is possible. The instructors are on point and helpful and the student advisors really care about you and your education. I have a family of 6 and the staff does everything to make sure school, work and home are balanced for me. If could describe the staff I would say that they are Guardian Angels of Education. Eventually I want to become an RN, I only wished that this school offered the program because I cant see me anywhere else. Thanks UMA for everything you do!"

"DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! You will end up paying back $27,000 to end up with NO job! They do not train you, so don't let the scrubs they send you fool you! This school is a big SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very unsatisfied with UMA. Nobody out there in the Medical Field is going to hire you with NO training. And I'm not just saying that. I have personal friends that tell me all about there interviews and I look up reviews from different people. One lady said that she still cannot get a job after graduated 4 years ago! Just think about going to UMA and do your research."

"I started with UMA in January 2015 taking the Medical Administrative Assistance course and I just seemed to breeze though the classes with ease. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and had been on the Dean's list several times, before I took my final class I decided to further my career by taking the Associate courses. When I started the new course I almost quit because it was extremely hard and I could not figure out how to do it but UMA has the best Academic Coaches who break down the assignments so it is easier to figure out what the instructors want. I graduated top of my class again with a 4.0 GPA and Dean's list. I highly recommend UMA they have Career Specialists who help you get ready to look for a career and to help you find a job and without them I would not have the job I have with a Specialty Pharmacy."

We are so proud of you for landing a phenomenal job and that we were able to help you find it. Be sure to keep us posted on your future career endeavors.

"I have also been scammed by this school they called me a billion times at first, I got emails and things from them . I had ask 2 months ago about my student loan I was told I had extra I signed for them to send it to me now they claim it aint there and it takes weeks to request it. So I ask why tell me this is what is left after school and is mine if I want it. But in same breath when I ask how they have the right to tell me when I get what is mine or how they choose what an when you get anything if they not paying it back. I feel this school is a TOTAL SCAM I am going to apply for another school an get my loan put torward a school that is actually heard of before."
Dan Soschin - 12/8/2015

Hi Renotta, I'm so sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulty with financial aid. I will have a member of our team reach out to you with additional clarification. We have to follow the rules and regulations established by the Federal government when it comes to loan disbursement. We gain no benefit in your frustration, but we have to follow the regulations. We'll give you a call to better explain things; perhaps we didn't do that as well as we could have the first time around. If you'd like to contact our office of student finance, they can be reached at 877-246-7918.

Ashonta Johnson - 12/8/2015

Hi Renotta – My name is Ashonta, and I’m the Marketing Coordinator at UMA. I’m understand your frustration. I’d like to connect you with our Student Finance team. Please email me at social@ultimatemedical.edu and I’d be happy to assist you. (Ashonta)

"Most of the bad reviews I am reading is mainly about refund checks not about your degree. I am also currently taking courses for my diploma and if all goes well I will continue on with my associates. I know a school shouldn't be responsible for you landing a job. I have attended colleges in the pass before UMA and there was never anything about the school landing anyone a job. The effort is determined on how much you want it, and how motivated you are. If you want it, you'll find a way."
Ashonta Johnson - 12/9/2015

We are dedicated to helping our students find employment opportunities. Since 1994, we have placed thousands of students in healthcare careers. We are definitely happy to have you a part of the UMA family, and proud of the goals that you have set for yourself. Please remember to reach out to us if there is anything you need help with.

"Educational services are sound. The instructors can do better with better student teacher communication. The Board staff members are very kind and knowledgeable about the educational process with combination of personal life. Will recommend for start up programs."
