"I enjoyed my time at UMA. The instructors were nice and reached out with concern when they thought I might fail a class. My academic advisor was helpful in explaining things like the tutoring services if I needed them. Currently, I am dealing with my career advisor who is helping me to find a job. Yes, I would recommend this school to friends and family."

Jasmine - 7/24/2018
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013
"Long story short I enrolled in the new Spa Management program. Was told after completing the associates program I could sit for the certified spa supervisor exam given through international spa association. I already had a bachelors and didnt need an associates but I wanted to be a spa supervisor so this was the only program I could find. At the time, ISPA would only let you take their exam if you were currently a spa supervisor already so UMA led me to believe by taking there courses I could take the exam. My materials actually came from ISPA however I later found out that they just had a professional membership with them but never promised their graduates could take the exam. When school was over I tried to take the exam at the ISPA convention and wasnt allowed to register! They told me I couldnt take the exam and my school was not valid for them to accept smh. I was devastated especially since now I had over $30k in student loans. I graduated with my bachelors on scholarship with no loans so I was distraught. Then I found out through my loan distribution that they took out 17 individual small loans each gaining interest separately. Its nerve wracking. Im trying to get an education lawyer now to see if that will help. I tried to dispute it with the school, talked to the Dean and he pretty much said I should be happy I had a degree in spa mgmt and that should help. Im like sir I have spa experience and a bachelors so this was a waste. He wouldnt respond further. The spa program disappeared off the face of the earth right after. BS school and I plan to fight"

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding

"If you're considering going to Ultimate Medical Academy, please reconsider, the online program may be fine for some but for me it was a complete nightmare. I had only a few instructors that actually were available to me when I needed assistance and when I left messages for them, my calls were rarely returned. A lot of the time, I felt like I was teaching myself. I graduated with my Associate Degree in Medical Billing and Coding only to be told after the fact, that I needed to also get my certificate, I would've liked to have been told this while still attending classes. Now I am finding it very difficult to find work in my field and thousands of dollars in debt. Thanks for nothing UMA."

"UMA was the best decision that I have ever made in my educational journey. I have never been so satisfied with all the services that UMA offers us students. From start to finish, I have maintained a 4.0 GPA, Straight As, placement on the Deans List, acceptance into the ambassadors program, and placement with the Honors Society. I have worked very hard but if it was not for my instructors, advisors, and UMA I dont know if I would have made it. I am so happy and proud of all my hard work and look forward to my future."

"After graduation an unbelievable amount of calls from financial services, counselors etc. Said they would help me find a job. Every two weeks I was on the phone talking to a new job services counselor, having to explain my job search criteria. They were looking in places over 6 hour each direction in another state. Never listened when I was telling them about the amount of travel time I would do. After I found a job for myself I was continually harrassed on the phone about my job information of which they had no part of finding me. I told them it was none of their business and to stop calling me, texting and emailing me. The calls never stopped. I even got a harrasing email saying my student loans were nearly in default and I would soon be subject to collections and my credit would be ruiend, which was false. I have asked on more then 10 occasions to stop all forms of communication and still they continue to call, text and email me."

"Late in life I decided that I would like to work in a field that would assist people so I decided to do my studies online and U.M.A. was a great choice ,there was someone ready to help you at all times.At the end of my studies I received a shot that left me with nerve damage I worked so hard to achieve my degree now I was unable to use my hand for a long period because of the pain,I panic but when I talked with my instructors and academy coaches they understood and was glad to help me. I can truly say that this was one of the best experiencing I ever made U.M.A. is a learning institution .with a heart.I finished my degree with honors, Thanks to the instructors and coaches,If you have educational needs do not miss this wonderful experience."

"I enjoy going to UMA but i feel that the classes are rushed and not enough time to learn the material.The instructors are friendly and usually respond in a timely manner. They also provide other online resources when help is needed. This course is more self taught than one on one."
