UMA has friendly, and beyond helpful staff. I graduated from UMA two years ago. Literally two weeks after I graduated UMA's Career Advisors helped me receive my first job in my career field as an Pharmacy Technician. I've been in my field for 2 years and I love every moment of it. Still to this very day advisors check in with me to ensure that I still have a job and even offer more opportunities. How awesome is that?! I highly recommend this school to anyone
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!!! The classes are easy to take online and the teachers are very nice, but it's the financial department that is AWFUL! I have been getting the run around trying to get my financial aid and loans going. It has been since March when I filled out my FAFSA and I'm STILL getting the run around with my loans. First they said I needed to amend my taxes dated back to 2013 and didn't even tell me why I needed them amended. When I talked to my tax preparer she told me that school has no idea what they are talking about and I didn't itemize my taxes to need to even get them amended. When I told my school this they then told me I needed to get a letter head stating this. Once I done so, they then had another excuse and told me I needed to go to the IRS website and get a ax transcript mailed to me. After finally getting all of this sent to me and me emailing all of this information, they then told me I had to get my 2015 taxes amended once again! I then went to H&R block and put the financial department on the phone and once I put him on the phone they then told him they didn't need me to amend them anymore after giving me they run around. When I finally think I have done everything they needed they then tell me all of my things are under review. I then have to wait weeks to find anything out. I then called yesterday to check on my loans and they told me to call back today (9/20/16) so I did. The guy then gives me the run around on trying to no mail me my left over loan money, and telling me how they can increase my school tuition at any time so they are setting the money back if that does happen. He then puts me on hold for 10min and comes back on the line and says he has a meeting he needs to go to and he will call me back. I'm done with this school and their b/s. I'm going to see about transferring. All I'm saying is, do not go here. You will get the run around and end up paying more money than what they actually say your school is going to be.
I am a recent graduate and I would recommend Uma to everyone. They encourage you and guide you through each process. I struggled a lot with being a full time parent and also holding a full time job. UMA instructors are very helpful and give you options to help you pass. The Live Labs and tutoring sessions were very helpful. They give all the tools you need to be successful. Career Services also keep their promise, They go above and beyond to get their Students into their respected fields. I have a job doing just that thanks to Career Services. Thank you UMA staff for being there for me even when I doubted myself
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 struggled with the online program I didn't always feel the program was geared towards working adults. I had issues with my computer and opted to use their computer program it was great at first then when I had issues with it no one seemed to know how to help and had me going in circles calling to get help with my computer issue. I graduate soon and it isn't resolved yet. I am so frustrated and upset and don't feel I was able to give a 100 percent to the program.
I started going to Ultimate Medical Academy in September 2015.It was the most scariest time of my life.I really did not know what to expect.I managed to complete the course and I graduate tomorrow.I have no regrets about going back to school at all.It really helped me to become a more knowledgeable person and it gave me the opportunity to learn new important skills that will help me in the work force.I am very glad that I made the decision to go to Ultimate Medical Academy.It really improved my life dramatically.The student advisors were great and the instructors were good as well.I enjoyed my studies so much that I re-enrolled for a second semester and am now going for my associated degree .I will be graduating in April of 2017 with a Associates of Science In Health Sciences.So my advise to all of you would be to follow your dreams and your heart.Ultimate Medical Academy is a really good school,Don't let anyone sway you away from your educational dreams.Do what is right and best for you,and your education.I also now have three job interviews lined up thanks to UMA.My opportunities are endless and thanks to UMA I am finally reaching the stars:)
Studying with UMA was the BEST decision I ever made. From the first chat with the gentleman to get me enrolled up to and even after graduation, UMA has been there. They got me through my studies, helped me organize my life, helped me upgrade my skills and has even made it easy to apply and eventually receive the position I have worked so hard for in the area I wanted. Cannot say enough about this school. If ever anyone wants to go into the medical industry, this is the school to pick.
I think UMA is a great school. The faculty is wonderful and very helpful when needed. The instructors are really knowledgeable about their courses that they teach. It is a great school. I did mine online and was able to do it on my time and keep up with the deadlines.
I was looking for an education that would allow me to serve those less fortunate, especially the children. I was basically surfing the web looking for a place I thought would suite me. I had turned down a few who just did not feel right. When UMA called it was as if everything just clicked and I was on my way. Since I have been with UMA not once did I feel I was on my own. The instructors and advisors and all who I have had the opportunity to speak with has always encouraged me and took the time to answer any and all my questions. I have even met some really great fellow students that have been with me in a lot of courses. I have no dought at all that UMA was where I was to be and I truly believe anyone looking for a college where they are given a chance to get their degree with plenty of people on their side needs to attend UMA. I will forever be Grateful for their support in my obtaining my degree.
This school has been an amazing experience for me! I found it at the right time for me to go back to school! The staff and faculty has been amazing in helping me continue education. They have been available when I need to talk to someone about courses, or have questions on how to finish an assignment. It has been amazing in introducing me to online schools.
