"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."

"I started with UMA in January 2015 taking the Medical Administrative Assistance course and I just seemed to breeze though the classes with ease. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and had been on the Dean's list several times, before I took my final class I decided to further my career by taking the Associate courses. When I started the new course I almost quit because it was extremely hard and I could not figure out how to do it but UMA has the best Academic Coaches who break down the assignments so it is easier to figure out what the instructors want. I graduated top of my class again with a 4.0 GPA and Dean's list. I highly recommend UMA they have Career Specialists who help you get ready to look for a career and to help you find a job and without them I would not have the job I have with a Specialty Pharmacy."

"I started with UMA in March of 2015. It was not easy, adjusting to school again since I am 45 years old. I was a trucker for 20 years and decided I wanted to start helping people on a more personal level. Some tips I can give would be these: If you are having trouble, reach out to someone at UMA. They will not give you the answers directly but they will make sure you understand the material you are working on. There labs they have, through out the day, is one of their best features. You have to remember though, they are not mind readers. If you do not reach out to them and ask for help when you need it, you will not learn anything. I am currently working for CVS Specialty in the billing department. I have been so lucky and blessed since I decided to give up trucking. At CVS it is like working with your family. Yes UMA career services lined this job up for me. They couldn't have done a better job, putting me in a place, I fit the most. Anyone who picks UMA will learn if they apply themselves and ask for help when needed. When you pick a school, the most important thing you should ask yourself is, Will I learn at this school and will they get me ready for a new career. I am living proof of that being yes to both questions. I have not driven a truck since July of 2015 and still take home around a 1000 dollars every two weeks. Not a lot of money but I am just getting started in my new career, thanks to UMA."

"I started attending UMA in June 2015, I had just finished my medical assistant program and I was trying to decide what to do next. I spoke to a wonderful advisor and she informed me with all my background and training this would be the next step. I have enjoyed my time with UMA and have had such wonderful advisors. I was able to be apart of something big with joining the ambassador program, dean's list and ABK honor society. UMA is the way to go if your looking to further your education."

"I leaned about UMA just around the time where I was thinking I may not even go to college. UMA encouraged me to apply, and their online "campus" was the perfect opportunity that I needed to get back on track. I am getting ready to graduate this September and have had a great experience at UMA. I have gotten the help that I needed from Academic Coaches and Financial Aid, have a great Learner's Advisor, and I am ready to graduate with my Associate's degree in my desire field - Health and Human Services."
