UMA Partner Schools

Further your education with one of our preferred partners.

Ultimate Medical Academy maintains articulation agreements with educational partners who share many elements of our mission. Through these partnerships, alumni with an associate degree from UMA have an opportunity to continue pursuing post-secondary education by obtaining their bachelor’s and/or master’s degrees. The agreements include the ability for UMA alumni to apply their associate degrees directly toward the attainment of a bachelor’s. The result is that UMA alumni are able to earn their bachelor’s degree in about half the time it traditionally takes.1 UMA alumni may also be eligible to receive grants from partner institutions and should speak with the partner schools to determine eligibility.2
