DO NOT BELIEVE THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!!!!!! This school is awesome you don't have to start paying on your student loans until 6 months after graduation unless you want to start paying sooner. If you want your disbursements then you have to call and ask for the remaining amount and they will send it to you. The staff is great and very helpful in everything. They are not all about the money they actually care about your future and help prepare you for a job and interviews and with your resume. If people are leaving negative reviews then they obviously wasn't doing something right. So don't believe the horrible things you hear about this school. I am a review person and if I have a bad experience I will be the first to let you know but this school absolutely wonderful I recommend to anyone. I actually have a friend of mine who chose this school as well and she loves it. UMA ROCKS
They were so helpful during my time there but afterwards it was a different story. No support of any kind. Career services suck horribly. My thoughts exactly. No changing of words or mind. Now that I think about it, I would have chosen another school with a better reputation, commitment, and long term assistance.
This school has ruined my life and my credit. I'm halfway through my program (9 months in) and I am $18,000 in debt. Also my degree will be useless in Louisiana and my credits will not transfer. Run away from this school if they call or you'll regret it. Trust me on this. I am seeking legal action because of all the loans I had to take out unnecessarily. An associates degree should NOT cost $30,000. These people lied to me and pushed me to enroll and by the time I realized they were scamming me it was too late. Please take my advice and do NOT enroll and if you have just enrolled here, withdraw now while you are still debt free. I qualify for full government financial aid, meaning I get the MAXIMUM amount for federal grants and that was more than enough to pay my tuition. But these sharks find every way to charge more and more every semester. They will talk and build you up when you first enroll and you will love them. I did too my first semester. But don't fall for it. These people a trained to motivate you. You will also more than likely have a 3.5 or higher GPA and get praised over and over every time you talk to them. It's all a scam. Every online student is an honor roll student. Then things start to change after they have you trapped and you are thousands of dollars in debt. You can't transfer to a legitimate school because no school accepts your credits and you can't quit. To all of your that just enrolled, please think about getting out while you still have time.
I AM BEGGING YOU PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL THEY MAKE YOU JUMP THROUGH SO MANY LOOPS TO GET YOUR MONEY BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KEEP IT YOU CAN GO TO SCHOOL SOME WHERE ELSE FOR MUCH CHEAPER!!!!! ALL THE MONEY YOU PAY JUST TO GET A ASSOCIATE DEGREE IS TERRIBLE!!!!! THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE AND NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN THE CLASSES ARE EASY BUT IT WILL DO NOTHING BUT LEAVE YOU IN DEBT!!!!
I attended UMA not realizing if I was going to like it or not. Once I got started on the program I realized that this was something I really was good at. I am getting my associate degree in Healthcare Management. The financial aid department was very helpful. I had to be transferred a few times to get problems solved but, in the end they were resolved efficiently and effectively. The academic coaching is wonderful. I couldn't tell you how many times I used them. The professors and staff were excellent. They give you the materials you need, and they provide extra websites and materials that help get you through. The professors are very willing to help you through any issues you may have to make sure you succeed. Overall, I have never regretted going to this school. I think they are very well adapted to today's studies. You have to remember that if you take online classes, they aren't easy. If it were easy, you really wouldn't learn anything. You have to be dedicated and committed to do the work and really reach out if you are struggling. They are there to help you push through. I love this school and like I said, I have no regrets at all.
This school has had a huge impact on my life. Not only with my education but my career as well. I am only 19 years old working at my children's doctors office and continuing to attend classes and take care of my family at home. This school has helped stay focused on my school work and if I need anything if a little extra push I receive it. The advisers are amazing. I have had a total of 6 advisers and that's because the first one moved then I had 2 more after that because of my GPA and then I went back to continue my education. Your adviser will work with you and always give you a call back.
This school is a joke. No decent paying place of employment will hire people from this school. Towards the end i figured out you can reset your attendance with a discussion or extra credit then do all 5 weeks work in one day and still very an A in the class. If you do that the teachers don't even read your response they just give you a decent grade for everything you submit. They call your phone 5 times in a row a couple times a day every single day. It is ridiculous. You tell them you work nights don't bother me they ring your phone by 9am. Financial aid messes award letters up. It is a waste of time and an even bigger waste of money. You can get a better education at a community college for a fraction of the cost.
Worse school ever! Lied too about everything ! Took my disbursement funds , that I was told I was going to get never did !!!! Was lied to about everything the school Would offer . Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone ! Ever!!!!! They are liars !
For starters I joined an online school because it was best fit for my lifestyle at the time having two young children. I was very weary for this is my first time attending online school which is not easy but I was motivated to complete the program to make my children proud. My experience with UMA has been absolutely AMAZING. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is ready to take their education to the next level and really serious about completing. I maintained a high gpa throughout my entire program I stayed up long nights studying utilizing all of the amazing resources that the school has given the students. Not to mention the staff is awesome, very attentive, and when they say they'll be there every step of the way, they will. I never felt alone although I live states away it felt like UMA was right here for me. Anyone ready to take education seriously, coming from a UMA graduate, I recommend UMA. Even after you graduate theyre here every step to help find employment. UMA literally has the best career services ive ever witnessed from a college, they care, they want us to find jobs and get everything out of what we signed up for attending this college. This school is excellent from the mock interviews to the professional advice ive learned so much not just with my field of study but how to become a professional in any business venture being goaled. I cant express this enough UMA has helped me grow in so many ways from my education level to my over all professional presentation. I will continue my education with UMA and it is worth every penny.
This school is unreliable. They tell you that they will help but they don't. Their Financial aide dept only wants the aide from the government but is unwilling to help give accurate information. They hound you but don't help or offer a solution. They're not that good.
