Enrollment in all Three Degrees

Most students enroll as Doctoral candidates, but no student is required to finish the program. You may choose to study only as far as the bachelor’s or master’s, and your payment plan would end once tuition has been paid for the highest degree sought.

You are welcome to return to your studies in the future should you decide to pursue a higher level.

    Hya, wondering are these accredited ? Not a bachelor in academic sense ?

    Thanks

    • UMS March 13, 2017 at 4:55 pm - Reply

      Hi Sam,

      Since our degrees are considered by the Department of Education to be “religious” degrees, as opposed to academic degrees, we are not eligible for the traditional accreditation that most secular colleges qualify for. However, are have been accredited by two organizations, the American Alternative Medical Association and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. You can read more about accreditation and these organizations here I hope this helps!

      Please direct further questions to ums@umsonline.org, or give us a call at 707-822-2111.

      Blessings!

    Hey there 🙂

    I just wanted to check – if you complete all three degrees, are you awarded each individually? so three separate certificates? Also, if you pay upfront is it Prepayment (Payment in full at time of enrolment) –>Reduced Tuition: $1995 for all three? And finally, are these qualifications recognised in Australia?
    Thanks so much!
    Kind regards,

    Angie

      Hi Angie,

      Yes, each individual degree is awarded upon completion of the requirements for that degree. Yes, the tuition of $1995 is for all three degrees; course materials are additional. Our degrees are recognized worldwide and considered to be “religious” degrees, as opposed to academic degrees. Feel free to direct further questions to ums@umsonline.org.

      Blessings!

      Hi Teya,

      I am sorry to say that no, we have not been approved to receive funds from the Veteran’s Administration.

    Is it possible to sign up with payment in full for just the bachelor and master certificates combined (excluding the doctoral)? I would like to pay in full (to take advantage of discount) but do not have $1995. How much would the payment in full cost for the bachelor/master certificates? Thank you.

    • UMS July 12, 2017 at 3:46 pm - Reply

      Hi Kris,

      Thank you for your interest in pursuing a bachelor’s and master’s through UMS! The total upfront cost for tuition for these degrees would be $1795. Course materials are additional, and the full cost of course materials would be the same as shown in the pricing, as the only course material for the doctorate is the dissertation guidelines. Please feel free to direct any questions you may have to ums@umsonline.org, or call 707-822-2111.

      Blessings!

      Hi Jessica,

      Thank you for your question! The cost of shipping would depend on which payment plan you choose. For specific information feel free to connect with us by emailing ums@umsonline.org, or by phone at 707-822-2111. We hope to hear from you!

    Hi. When you say that the $1995 is for tuition and course material is additional, then is the full prepayment price including tuition and course material, no additional costs, the amount that is under the heading of “total prepayment cost tuition +course materials” of $2150?

    • UMS July 12, 2017 at 3:41 pm - Reply

      Hi Tanya,

      Yes, the total cost of tuition + downloaded course materials is $2150 USD. If you were to receive course materials through the mail, your total cost would be $2497.50 (unless you are in California, where sales tax would be added, or outside of the US, in which case there would be additional shipping charges). There are no additional charges. Feel free to direct further questions to ums@umsonline.org, or call us at 707-822-2111.

    What if a student decides to go with the program only through the Master’s degree? Will the remaining funds for the doctorate program not be charged under the four year program?

    • UMS July 31, 2017 at 1:53 pm - Reply

      Hi Alanna,

      That is correct. Your payments will be the same as listed, but your total cost for tuition would be $2390 if doing the bachelor’s and master’s only. Feel free to direct further questions to ums@umsonline.org, or call us at 707-822-2111.

      Blessings!

    How many months to complete the three degree. Are there any assignments and exam.thanks

    • UMS April 2, 2018 at 9:46 am - Reply

      Hello,

      The minimum time-frame for completing the three degrees is one year. It takes a minimum of six months to complete the bachelor’s, and another four for the master’s, the final two months being to complete your dissertation. There is an exam for each course in the program, and a couple of projects along the way including a large final project for the master’s degree, and then a 10,000 word dissertation for the doctorate. For some more information about the UMS experience, please visit this page in the FAQ section of our website. Feel free to email ums@umsonline.org with any further questions.

      Blessings!

    Are you considered a student when you file taxes? Is there a school code etc…

    • UMS April 2, 2018 at 9:40 am - Reply

      Hi Angela,

      Thank you for your question! UMS is considered by the Department of Education to be a “religious” school. Thus, we are not a Title IV school, and do not have a school code you can use on your taxes. If you have further questions, please give us a call, or email ums@umsonline.org.

      Blessings!

    Hello,

    Is it possible just to do the bachelors? What would the cost of this be if paying over a year?

    • General Login March 19, 2018 at 12:21 pm - Reply

      Hi Rose, thanks so much for being in touch. It is possible to do the bachelors degree only. With internet downloads of courses the cost is right around $1800 if paying over 1 year. The monthly payments would run around $130 monthly. If you have any other questions please feel free to email or call.

      Blessings!
