I am a student at Ultimate Medical Academy. My husband is going to school at Tulsa Welding school in Jacksonville, Florida. I am in school online. We both were having problems with work and wanted something better for our future and our children's futures. We already knew the sacrifices that we would have to make to further our education for a better future. Ultimate Medical Academy has a great online learning set up.

 I have learned a lot and have exceptional teachers and advisers.  Financial Aid on the other hand does not care about their students and will withhold loans that you apply for and have to pay back. I started school in August 2012 and my husband started in October 2012. We had a working vehicle until my husband started driving over an hour to get to

school. Then our vehicle started messing up. We have put every dime we had into this vehicle and still can not get it to run right. I applied for extra loans through UMA to help with us being able to go to school. My computer quit working a month before my first half of the loan was supposed to come in. They were supposed to walk me through the paper work for the loans and messed up. They told me to sign and email them back, so I did.

One of the emails was to send the money back, they did not catch the error, I did. I had to rent a computer and my rental was up. They helped me the best they could to get the money so I could do my classes. The second loan was supposed to be here at the end of December early January. They have had the money since January 3rd and still will not send it to me and it is January 14. We budgeted our money around this loan for us both to be able to go to school. We do not have the money for my husband to drive over an hour to go to school now because they refused to send money that I have to pay back. My husband is going to have to drop out of school now because financial aid wants to take their

good old time sending a check that I applied for and have to pay back. And on top of all this they are taking a percentage out for themselves after my school loans already cover financial aids fees. I called and explained my issues with them not sending the check and they do not care. These people do not care about anyone or what they do by waiting till the last minute to send money that I was supposed to have 2 weeks before. I love my teachers and the classes online are amazingly set up to learn. The school itself is top notch and worth every penny. The teachers and advisers work with you and really do care about their students. If you do not use financial aid for help then I completely

recommend this school.  But if you have to use financial aid then be aware!!!! They do not care about the students at all. No matter how high your grades are or that you turn your work in on time or that you do everything that you are supposed to do, They do not care about you!!!!!

They make it so hard to make a future for your family. They do not care about everything you have to give up to go back to school like cable, Christmas,  going out on a date with your husband, being able to buy a toy for your kids, taking your kids to a park because you have to save your money and so much more. We are struggling enough with out our schools screwing us over with our loans. We have sacrificed so much to make a better life for our family and now my husband is going to have to drop out of school because we do not have the money to get him to school because financial aid treats loans that we apply for like it is nothing. We would not have applied if we did not need them. 

Be Aware of Financial Aid at Ultimate Medical Academy!!

Thank You
