All Questions in FAQ Category: Academics

  • Does UMA offer a nursing program?

    UMA does not currently offer a Nursing program, but we do have a Nursing Assistant program at our Clearwater campus, along with other allied healthcare programs through our online campus.
  • Does UMA offer Basic X-Ray Technician training?

    UMA does not currently offer any training for basic x-ray technician. You might want to consider programs like Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions at our Clearwater Campus, or online training for Medical Administrative Assistant or Medical Office and Billing Specialist. We also have other programs available depending on your healthcare education interests.
  • Can I share my achievement on social media?

    Yes! Take a photo of yourself with your certificate and share it on social media using the hashtag #UltimateMedicalAcademy.

  • Where can I access My Portfolio to upload my certificate?

    You can find My Portfolio through the myUMA homepage inside of Blackboard (the online classroom), or through a link available in designated courses. We encourage you to upload the PDF file of your certificate into My Portfolio so you can leverage it for your résumé and career search.

  • Can I request to have a past certificate sent to me?

    Unfortunately, only current certificates will be mailed out.
  • I should have qualified for an academic certificate, but I didn’t. What do I do?

    Please contact Learner Services at 888-216-0544 or if you believe you qualified for an academic certificate but didn’t receive one, or if you believe you didn’t receive the correct certificate.

  • How long will it take for me to receive my certificate?

    Please allow 4-6 weeks after the end of the quarter for your academic certificate to be mailed to you.

  • How often does UMA issue Honor Roll or Dean’s List certificates?

    UMA issues academic certificates quarterly—so 4 times per year.

  • What are the start and end dates for the quarters?

    The quarter ranges are as follows:

    • Quarter 1—Jan. 1 to March 31
    • Quarter 2—April 1 to June 30
    • Quarter 3—July 1 to Sept. 30
    • Quarter 4—Oct. 1 to Dec. 31

    If your course ends after the end date of any quarter, that grade will be applied (if eligible) to the next quarter’s academic achievements. For example, if your course ends on April 3, you will be eligible for academic certificates from Quarter 2, even if most of your course began in Quarter 1.

  • What are the Dean’s List and Honor Roll requirements?

    To qualify for an academic certificate, you must maintain a GPA of 4.00 for the Dean’s List and 3.50-3.99 for the Honor Roll. You also must have been a student throughout the entire quarter. If you enrolled halfway through a quarter, you will be eligible starting the next quarter.
