Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2013
"My decision to attend UMA was based entirely on my desire to become the most educated and prepared medical biller possible. UMA is dedicated to providing all of the training essential to student success in the medical profession. The instructors at UMA are some of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They truly care about their students success, and continuously go above and beyond to make themselves available to their students for support, both educational and personal. I am a two - time graduate of UMA, and I will always return to UMA for all of my secondary education needs."

"UMA was the first college I attended after 20 years. Programs are phenomenal. After I graduated, my Career Advisor set up 9 interviews for me in one week. I received a job offer the same week. The staff is amazing!! Thank you all for such a wonderful experience!"

"I found it very difficult to get any assistance when I needed it from advisors or teachers. I found several of the teachers to be bias to their own opinions; meaning they would not accept another person's argument that was persuasive. I am now working in a call center as a health agent, that is soon going to be out of yet another job due to open enrollment ending. I needed help with the certification exam and did not receive any until it was too late. I am still paying back students loans for an 'education' that is useless."

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015
"I attended UMA three times for three different courses and I have loved every minute I was there. The advisors were nothing but helpful, and the career advisor was always there for you before and after graduating to help you find employment. The online class was really easy to understand and use and instructors are very understanding and helpful. Communication is the key if you have any problems and they are always there to help. I am happy I picked UMA and you will be too."

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"To put it simply, the UMA mascot should be incompetence. Or Pass the buck. The only response you're likely to receive when needing assistance is an auto generated email. your instructors will reach out and then not follow up. If you need any other types of assistance you will find that you never speak to the same person twice. I wouldn't work there if they offered me a job. the customer is never right!"

"From the moment I started my journey with my admissions advisor to the the very last day i spoke with my Student Advisor, my experience with UMA was wonderful. They are always just a phone call or email away and sometimes even a text. They helped me with all my questions; issues if any with financial aid; the teachers were very helpful and willing to help you grasp the subject you were studying. The mock interviews were a HUGE help especially being your first time in the medical field. They helped me prepare for interviews and even helped me with getting my current job where i have been for almost 2 years. I wish I could go back to UMA to further my education into a RN, there is time still to do that. I hope that those that choose UMA have a great experience just as I did."

"I was working for a large retail company when I married my husband. I had been interested for some time in Medical Coding. Well he convinced me to quit working so I could put 100% of my time on school. I treated it like a job, got up and started at 8 stopped for lunch and finished at 5. I held a 4.0 GPA all the way through my courses. I absolutely loved going to UMA. Everyone from start to finish was there to help no matter what the problem. I was six weeks from finishing my Associates Degree in Medical Billing and Coding when my career advisor called me and told me he had the perfect job. It was all I requested close to home and part time. I really didn't want to start work yet but he (Moe) convinced me to go to the interview. I went to the interview and was hired that day. The part time only lasted for two weeks. I work full time as a billing coordinator for six offices in a major home health company. I even went to Tampa, FL and walked across the stage to receive my diploma. UMA is an amazing school. You can't go wrong attending whether it is the ground campus or online. I have recommended UMA to several friends and anyone else that asks about my degree."

"I absolutely love this school. They helped me so much, and I like the fact that they call me just to see how I'm doing and ask me if I need help. Great support! I also like the fact that anytime I'm having issues they are always there and get back to me in a timely matter."
