Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2016

I started in 2015 at UMA. I started taking ICD9 then ICD10 was going to start within some months. So I feel my time was wasted on ICD9.Student loans were taken out without my signing anything. I never received any disimbursement payments, and I actually put in for several of them. My course was to last 10 months and the cost of that course ended up being over 16,000 and that included grants and student loans thats ridiculous, now I have an excessive debt for a course where I have not benefited anything from only gained a financial debt. I feel this matter should be looked into and I should be given a student loan cancellation or a loan forgiveness for a course that the school obviouly knew was changing within months.

Degree: Health/Health Care Administration/Management
Graduation Year: 2001

Well, its always best to do the research. My online course's were difficult for me to navigate at first, so i advise other students to communicate with the staff. I am still very new and doubt my opinion matter's but reviews state harassing phone call's? I appreciate the help.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2020

I am currently enrolled in Ultimate Medical Academy and I think this school is a joke. I really wish I did more research before making my decision of attending this school. I began school in December and I still do not have a student e-mail. I think this is VERY unprofessional and the answer I keep getting is "They are working on it." How does a University take so long just to get an e-mail set up? I want my student Amazon Prime membership and I can't get it with out my e-mail. I also can't believe the instructors in these classes actually check peoples work. I write a very detailed, well written and professional paper every week. I look at other students papers because we have to evaluate each other and write a review on their essay. Some of these students need to go back to kindergarten. They write maybe two sentences, have misspelled words and do not use capitalization. What really bothers me is that the teachers gives these students the same great remarks that they give myself. This just blows me away. It is very frustrating seeing that. It makes me feel that the quality of work doesn't matter. Think about it; these people are trying to work in healthcare as a medical biller, Health and Human Services employee ect..... Our healthcare system is already screwed up and I can't imagine how much worse it would be if these students get hired, by mistake. I would run away fast if your thinking about attending this so called university. I am looking into transferring and that it is not an easy process. I might be stuck here until I graduate next June. I am currently on the honor roll, (for the first time in my life) and I am starting to think that this school graduates everyone as long as the student loans go through. I am embarrassed to tell people the name of my school. It just sounds fake, Ultimate Medical Academy? Sounds like a pay for diploma type of school. They are always asking for students to do reviews so here is mine!

They also are not paying my post 911 gi bill money like they are suppose to. i wish I would of seen these reviews in advance. I didn't know there is scam schools. But now I know. Time n money wasted.

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.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2019

The actual learning part of this school's online program was amazing. The student Advisors were a bit clingy, despite me telling them I do not do well being bothered. I never missed days, and I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. It wasn't until I was enrolled in their nightmare-inducing department they call 'Career services' that I realized this place may, in fact, be insane. I have had four different 'advisors', and have been talked down to, offered jobs that I did not even remotely qualify for, and dealt with the most asinine and unprofessional people I'd never even wish on my worst of enemies. This place has countlessly placed me in for jobs without my knowledge or even in a city I could get to easily. They have even sent me into a job interview knowing I did not have the proper licenses to work there for a potential job, just to be laughed out of the place. This school needs to be reviewed with a fine tooth comb and see if they're even worthy of being considered a school. At this point, it feels more like wasted time and effort dealing with their mind-numbing stupidity.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2020

I was told that my disbursement check was cut and mailed on 2/28/19 it is now 3/19/19 and i have yet to receive it and i have called multiple times and all i get is "it was put in the mail allow 7-10 business days" I spoke with the post master in Tampa as well as in Florissant where I live and I also have mail watch and I was told that either the school has prepared it and not sent it or it was just never sent. Then the school tells me that after 15-business days that they can stop payment and cut me a new check which will be another three week process. What I dont understand is that UMA mailed me a student id card that was dated 3/8/19 and i received it 3/11/19. I receive books, and binders that they mail within three days but a check I have not received. No management seems to care about my "check" Im going to report this to everyone I can. DO NOT ENROLL HERE! I had told my friends about it and they were interested in enrolling but I will be sure to let them know not to. This is sad because I believe that they did not mail my check. They should have mailed the check priority. and or mail my new one that way. I am going to call the place that I took the loan out from and report this!
