"A overwhelming amount of the staff and teachers at Ultimate Medical Academy have been amazing during my time online with this school. The advisors are always friendly and help you every way they can, in fact it was one of the advisors that made me realize going back to school could happen while being a single mom and only being able to do online classes. I have never had a problem communicating with the staff, especially teachers they are always there to answer your assignment questions or make sure you have all the help you need. I would recommend Ultimate Medical Academy to anyone who is thinking about going to school whether right after high school or even if it has been a few years since high school, they will welcome you with open arms, and make you feel right at home there."

"Don't get me wrong, it seems as if the people are nice and want to help, but is it really morally right rushing people to sign a contract so you will then be automatically enrolled? They don't tell you to read anything in the "enrollment agreement" either. They just say "scroll to the bottom and click agree" as you are talking to them over the phone. Also, if you go through the enrollment process and change your mind, you only have 72 hours to cancel until you are locked down and have to pay money. This is ridiculous and I felt as if I was coerced into doing this. I just wanted to talk on the phone to learn more about the program. This is very misleading!"

"After working with this school for a month I was cancelled from enrollment twice with out any contact or reason given. They provided me numerous times with incorrect information and told me I should call the IRS because they information on the IRS website was wrong. I was repeatedly called within an hour from 3 different people about the same thing. My student advisor was changed on me without any notice. I was interrupted repeatedly while talking with Dominique. I would not recommend this school to anyone ever!"

"Well i would like to say this school is a real big joke because i have student debt for 16000 and a associates degree that i cant do anything with so i just pay for a piece of paper. Cause every job the career service set for me has nothing to do with my degree or i do have enough of experience i would suggest yall to include some clinical for hands on experience to help further help us understand it better and do bother telling to email yall or contact the anyone because i am done. I will be contacting a college board to get the school closed permanently. So if you or close take my student away."

"At first, I admit that I was skeptical of going back to school at age 41, because of the number of years it had been since I had any type of formal education. I was a divorced Mom whose only son had just graduated from High School and had no real direction, after all, I had been just "Mom" since I was 18 years old. Stephanie from admissions had called and truly inspired me. She was thoughtful, patient, energetic, and took the time to answer every single question I asked thoroughly. I was then contacted by Financial Aid, and was equally as impressed by the time spent to explain the loan process to me. Every single Advisor, Instructor, Financial Aid Counselor, etc. that I have encountered along my journey has treated me with nothing but respect, courtesy, and a positive attitude. I have been able to call, text, and email all of my Instructors, at any given time, for guidance, support, and to answer my questions the entire time I have been a UMA student. Discussion forums and a broad social network of fellow UMA students have helped me to feel like I am not alone in this. I would also like to add that their slogan that "UMA Cares" is a fact that I have experienced on two of the scariest days of my life. The first being the sudden death of my Mother on Christmas last year, only two months after I enrolled. The second was on my 41st birthday, September 14th, when I suffered a Myocardial Infarction (or heart attack) and had to have surgery to place a stent in the artery that supplies blood to the actual heart muscle. It was terrifying because I had 100% blockage and nearly did not survive. The concern and genuine affection I felt from UMA staff was overwhelming and I will never forget it as long as I live. I am proud to say that, despite the most difficult obstacles I have ever faced, I was able to maintain my 4.0 GPA. I was accepted into the Alpha Beta Kappa Honor Society and I am an official UMA Ambassador! I graduate in just a few short months and I hope that my story will help you all to see that if you really want a purpose and need direction, then UMA is the school to guide you. It has been the best decision of my life, and truth be told, UMA is a fantastic place to gain your diploma or degree. There are those that do not take full advantage of the resources provided, and they may try to sway you away from UMA, but do not allow them to discourage you. It is a huge decision and your life will be forever changed, so do not let others make your life's decisions for you, myself included. I can only tell my story and hope that someday I may read yours here. Thank you for your time,"

"When I decided to go back to school I knew UMA was the right fit for me. The people here are encouraging and will help you in any way possible. They offer many services to help you with course work as well as with your career. They even help with finding a job for you after completion. You are only required to attend three days a week which was ideal for my life. I would recommend UMA to anyone who is looking to further their education."

"I am loving my decision to continue my education and for doing it here at UMA! I am currently in my 6th class and just started my 16th week of class. My experience here at UMA has been nothing short of amazing! My student advisors have been absolutely amazing, especially my first advisor Ruth. They call me on a regular basis and help me with any questions or problems I am having.They also have given me a lot of praise for getting all of my work done and turned in as well as about my grades and GPA> Tech support has also been very helpful as well. Any technical problem I have had, like getting the interactives to work, they have fixed it in a timely manner. My instructors have been extraordinary! They answer any and all of my messages and questions within a couple of hours. They also explain their answers to my questions in great detail to help me be able to complete the work. The instructors are very knowledgeable about the topic they are teaching. They have also been very kind, caring and motivational. Most of the instructors send out motivational emails and announcements every week which I have found very helpful. One of my instructors even granted me a one day extension on my discussion one week because I was having health issues and had to go to the emergency room. This school offers a lot of resources to the students. They even have a virtual library and can " Ask the librarian". They also offer a writing center where you can submit your work for review to ensure that you are not committing plagiarism and that you are including correct citations where needed, as long as you complete your work before the due date. This school as a whole has been amazing! I recommend that anyone looking to get an Associates degree in the medical field should attend this school!"

"I would say in all honesty, UMA is a great school to attend. They have your back through the end and even after you graduate. The tuition is inexpensive than majority of the other schools that have you paying an arm and a leg for. Also, UMA have great selections of majora to choose from. You also, receive reminders of when assignments are due every course and you also get to be apart of something great. I love it here and my graduation is next year in the spring. All you have to do is stay focus, be on time, and ask questions. Don't feel like you have to do this journey alone because you don't. This school is very understanding and they care. They are hers for you no matter what. You just have to speak and be clear on what you're not clear on and you shall receive your answer. Finally, when it comes down to job replacement, this school will support you and get you working in your field of study. I don't know what some of the reviews is speaking on but this school Ultimate medical academy great on saying they will support you on helping you get a job inyour field but you also have to have a part into knowing where you want to be and also put out your resumes as well not just the school. It goes hand in hand. Overall, I've recommended several people to this school and they say they love it and its a game changer for them and they will recommend others as well. Everything about this school has changed me. I have a 4.0 and always making the Dean's List since 2018. So I did it and succeeded you can too. Sometimes you have to go with your gut and ezperiences instead of reading or listening to what others have to say because you could be missing out on a great opportunity in its entirety."
