Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2018

UMA is a great school I would tell any and everyone that wants to go to school either online or on campus UMA is the place to go. I signed up straight out of high school they had a high school program that they dropped but I was lucky to finish the high school program and go straight into college for my degree. The instructors call to see how you doing as well as let you know how your doing.

Degree: Health Information/Medical Records Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

Any school experience is what you make it. Earning a degree online takes dedication and discipline. I just finished last month and I'm very excited about the future. This program meets the accreditation requirements needed for my profession and credentials. After finding this school on the accrediting organization's website, I began my research. I had a great experience with this school. I received grants that decreased my tuition cost; lower than the typical amount to earn an Associates degree.

Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2019

First of all I enrolled in this school because a former friend of mines was enrolled and I thought it was a good ideal note my friend didn't finish with this school because of their on reasons, let me say I'm 3 classes in and I have opinions of my own about UMA. First of all I feel like i have wasted a lot of money going to this school which in loans that I have to pay back, the reason I feel like this is because it took forever to get in contact with a instructor and by forever I mean forever. Also I just feel like this school is not legitimate and I tell you why I'm in a class now with an instructor who name is Dr. Magby no picture on this person no information on this person like other instructors and I just don't trust that it makes it's seems like it is a random person who is just giving out grades just because you complete the work rather it's wrong or right. I just think this school is out to just get money, I hope I'm wrong and I can use this degree in a professional matter. I worry that this is just a piece of paper that I will have that won't work for me.i graduate in 2019 and God willing I will write back and tell how all goes. Question does anyone who graduated from UMA with AAS in Medical administrative Assistant has this degree helped you in anyway with getting a job in the medical field? I hope that my feeling about this school being a scam are wrong and I can put my faith in them.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2018

This school has been a blessing for me. You get out of online classes what you put in. The staff have been very helpful, but I will say that there were some that need more social skills. I truly have nothing bad to say about the school. If you plan on going back to school online, I would highly recommend UMA. Don't join though if you are not equally balanced within yourself.

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2018

This program helped me gain employment in my career field while still attending!! UMA helped me manage my time to stay determined while caring for a large family, working and continuing my education! This opportunity still feels unreal! The advisors and staff communicate effectively and timely, and the curriculum is beyond manageable. My family is very thankful for UMA!

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2017

Being new to the US and seeking employment in my specialized field of business administration, I realized very quickly that that area was already populated and finding a job in that area was going to be futile. Having decided that I needed to change my career focus to allied healthcare and seek training in the area, I was directed to UMA online degrees. I started in May of 2016 not knowing what to expect or where/how the tuition would be paid, but I was already in. I hit the ground running with a 4.0 GPA from the first course to the last, making Dean's list every semester until I graduated in July 2017. As it relates to the financial management of my studies, I am not satisfied with the transparency of the Student Finance dept. But everybody's experience is different. Overall, whenever I encountered issues I made sure to voice my disapproval and did not rest until the matter was resolved. The coursework was overwhelming sometimes, but help was always available to online students and some Instructors took their role seriously in terms of ensuring that the students finish strong. Having graduated and now moved into Alumni status, the Career Advisers have been very helpful in trying to point me to jobs that would best assist me in putting the technical knowledge into practical experience. Due to personal choices, I had taken a break from the job hunting for a few weeks but is now ready to refocus my efforts in allowing UMA to assist me in finding that job that will launch me into the healthcare industry. Overall, UMA has helped me gather the requisite knowledge I will need to move forward in my career. Problems will always exist with EVERY institution and if you sit and nit-pick about everything, you lose sight of your goals and everybody's experience will be different. If you need an institution to assist you to meet your educational goals, UMA is the place to be.

Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2016

The school is good but the career services is awful. I had a baby at the end of my degree (unplanned) I choose to stay home, when I asked if we could close my case until I am ready to work I was told no in a rude way. They call all the time and email non stop I reply to every email and never hear back. The classes were great and helpful. If you know you are going right to work this is an awesome school but if you may have something come up this isn't the school for you.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2016

My experience with UMA was amazing right from the beginning when I started taking my online courses. I received great support and encouragement from the advisors and teachers at UMA. I went thru a tough ordeal when I lost 4 family members including my mom during my schooling and it was hard keeping up for awhile but the advisors were so supportive and helped me to stay positive during this time and would not let me give up. I know that they went above and beyond just to keep me going thru my classes and cheered me on to finish and graduate. I am very thankful and humbled that I had the encouragement from such amazing individuals at UMA. When I graduated I was so overcome with joy and they helped me celebrate my success even after the loss of my mom who was a UMA alumni as well. They believe in their students and the families they are building their futures for and I truly appreciate their support. I would DEFINITELY recommend anyone who is seeking a career in healthcare to give UMA a chance to prove they can lead you to success. They are there to empower individuals to be at their best and they care about the students and families. I owe so much to the great and amazing people at UMA. They helped me to look toward a better future for my daughter's and I and as a single mother that's important. Thank you so much to ALL departments at UMA who were with me every step of the way.

Degree: Medical Insurance Coding Specialist/Coder
Graduation Year: 2018

Honestly, this College called Ultimate Medical Academy really saved my life. This Teresa Marie Kitchen is very thankful for the education that UMA.com has provided for me and I hope to be working soon to help repay back my college tuition? My Instructors gave a good first IMPRESSION. Maybe I would of liked to have been more organized to get better grades but I made the dean's list and never thought that I would be going the distance in my life to do that! Also, I am concerned about my school loans that I did take out to pay for my college tuition because I don't totally feel well informed about how much I need to repay and I am not knowing why when I took out loans, where did the money go? Other than that I asked if my school transcripts could be sent to a new college because I was wanting to give another college job opportunity to help train me and I have not heard back from UMA.com student adviser about my transcript's ? Other than that I have had a really great experience here at UMA.com and would suggest this college to anyone. Hopefully my own daughter "AUDRA" will be encouraged to join UMA.com to learn to earn a college Associates degree? I love my little girl very much and hope that she will enjoy this college education at UMA as much as her Birth Mother Teresa Marie Kitchen. I LOVE this College! YOUR AWESOME UMA.com!

This school is crooked ! They act like they care about you until you sign papers then you call and call for help and get no one caring anymore! The teachers yell and belittle you instead of incouraging you! I was broke and scared and they brainwashed me into thinking this would be the best move for me to get out of debt. But guess what I never got a job because I needed experience which the school told me they could get me through that and that never happened!! What did happen is they sunk me further into debt! I hope you are proud of taken advantage of a very scared middle-aged person!
