"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."

"Every since the day I signed up at UMA, my life has been wonderful. I still hold a GPA average of a 4.0 since i started back in August 2015. UMA have been the only school to help me in everything since day one and they are always calling to check in to make sure everything is okay. This school, so far has been the best school I have ever attended. All the staff and instructors are so nice and always there for you. If you are looking for another chance at school or even just looking for the first time, then UMA is the place to be. Don't hesitate, they just one call away."

"I have been very happy with UMA Enrollment was easy, and classes have been fantastic. I enjoy the instructors I have had. My only issue would be that I would like to hear more from my advisor. I make straight A's so I don't require as much attention, but I would still like to know that I'm a priority. Great School and happy to be a part of it."

"I enrolled in Ultimate Medical Academy in April of 2015. I enrolled after much deliberation as to what I was going to enroll in and what exactly I wanted to pursue as far as a career goal. In short, I don't regret making the decision to enroll at UMA, I have maintained a 4.0 GPA since day one. The instructors were very knowledgeable, and the career advisors were also very helpful. I would recommend UMA to anyone who wants to pursue their degree(s) to choose UMA, it is well worth the investment."

"I decided to attend UMA because a friend of mine told me great things about her experience at UMA. I had be attending various schools in the past and found myself becoming discouraged. I am glad that I eventually decided to attend UMA because everyone from the advisors to the actual instructors proved to be dedicated to the academic needs of their students. I would definitely recommend UMA to anyone that be interested in continuing their education. I must express that I am proud to be a UMA graduate."

"I wish I had never enrolled into UMA. Contacting your advisor is nearly impossible as well as passing. I was not even told when my class begun. I only knew 2 weeks in when my email confirmed a delivery of my books . by then i was 2 weeks behind. Leaving me with a failing grade overall by 2 points . I still have not hear back from my advisor. Please look into whatever school your thinking about and dont' end up having to pay back all the money borrowed like i now have to with no degree at all."

"I started UMA in September 2015, and it was the best decision ever. The staff and instructors care about your well beings to be successful in the program. Getting started with them was a "Breeze". Starting at the financial aid department, we all know it can be a hassle at times, but UMA made it a piece of cake. I have been on the dean's list, maintaining a grade point average of 4.0. Special thanks to UMA's advisory department and instructors for their extended blessings for helping me make my dream into reality. "Want to make a life change, enroll with UMA"."

"I have previously taken classes related to healthcare. I got my Billing & Coding Certificate from my local community college about 9 years ago. I've also been employed in the healthcare field for the past 8 years. UMA insisted that I take classes (college English, college math & medical terminology)I had already taken to get my Billing & Coding Certificate in order to get my associate's degree. Also, when I let my advisor know that one course was completely about the Practice Management system I used every day at work and I would like an opportunity to test out of the class, I was told that wasn't an option. What a waste of 5 weeks and several hundred dollars, I got 100% and never even opened the book. Due to the online nature of the program, all my professors stressed proper grammar and spelling; however, I had one professor that had absolutely awful grammar. After graduation, they contacted me on numerous occasions to verify the same information over and over because they couldn't get it right in their system. Had I known then what I know now, that they are not accredited by the BBB or even accredited in every state, would have taken them off my short list of schools."

"I have had a great time getting my specialist's diploma from UMA. I was able to work independently and at my own pace which is my style of working. If I had any questions, an instructor was easily accessible. I would recommend UMA to anyone who's looking to get their diploma or degree, especially in the medical field."
