"Terrible, financial aid is a joke! Every time you call you talk to someone different, and they tell you different things that are needed to get your aid, even your award letter has been signed. If I go back it will be the 4th time after completing the first course once. They put your case with a supervisor who never calls or emails you back like they said they would. You can go somewhere else with less of a headache than this place. They are also about $5000 per semester than anywhere else too. Think long and hard before you waste your time and money on this place."

"Being a student at UMA has been a great experience. The support provided by the instructors as well as the other staff has helped me to remain motivated to complete my work on time as well as to the best of my ability. They are there every step of the way to help and support you from the beginning stages of enrollment, to filing for financial aid, all through the courses and even after you graduate. I am very optimistic about my future thanks to being a student at UMA. I believe that my education at UMA will help me reach all of my career goals. As a single mom without a great personal support system, failing was a real concern until I started receiving the much needed support from my student advisor. Now, thanks to the great support system at UMA, I am halfway through my program for my degree and I have managed to maintain a 4.0 GPA. I don't believe this would have been possible without the wonderful instructors, student services and other support offered at UMA. I'm extremely happy about selecting UMA for my continued education and don't think I could have found a better, more supportive school to attend anywhere! Amanda L. Smith"

"This was the absolute worse educational establishment I have ever been a part of. From counselors, to instructors to classroom interaction. If you are trying to get a degree where you actually learn something DO NOT GO HERE! The classes are a joke, the only worth while part would have been the discussion portion but it felt more like being on a social media tread, even from instructors responses. If you need help or want clarification, you cannot count on the instructors who never get back to you, and depending on your counselor you may be left without any true advising. When I was actually able to get a hold of my advisor, which was not often, I was given misleading and incomplete information which left me in a predicament where I was forced to withdrawal from school and left with an outrageous fee for learning absolutely nothing."

They send you the equipment that you will need for the job that you will need to have. They offer work from home jobs, and clinic environment jobs as well. Overall, they have the best medical school I know."

"I enjoy that the advisors wholeheartedly care for you. They inquire communication about failed assignments, missed coursework, and your overall performance as a UMA student. I have really enjoyed my time so far. The new course room is so helpful. It enables me to acknowledge what I have completed, as well as what I have to complete for the week."

"I have had the best experience with Ultimate Medical Academy! I was so scared and intimated before starting, but the staff has been wonderful. I feel like I belong here and I will always be a part of UMA. My instructors and advisors have been phenomenal. Anytime I need help, they are more than willing to help. I was afraid that I would feel secluded being an online student, but that has not been the case at all. I have the opportunity to talk to and interact with other students just like I would in a classroom. I have learned so much and cannot wait to start my career. #umaproud #pumaproud #classof2021"

"I have attended other colleges, but this is my first time with an actual virtual approach to complete a program. Here at UMA has the most compassionate and caring team to ensure the success of its students. For example, after some brief health complications, I needed to search for an alternate career. With my passion for allied health care, the advisory team assisted me in making the right fit for my family and me. The instructors at UMA also make the program fun and challenging. They make sure the student can reach for assistance thru many services provided or the availability of their schedule thru email, text, or phone. The responses are very timely within 24 to 72 hours. It's a great school if seeking team guided approach to your career."
