Services

At UMT-Connected, we are well aware of the doubts and apprehensions that you might have regarding degrees acquired through online education. The questions in your minds are varied; what services will you be provided with? How you are going to access those services, we even ensure the ease of access, who you consult if you face any bumps down the road? Don’t fret regarding such reservations! Our Online Student Services programs are designed around your needs. It is our essential goal to provide you with the best possible services when you need them.

The biggest challenge in an online education setting is to realize the fact that you don’t fall in the category of “one size fits all”; it is your genuine expectation to be recognized and thus treated as an individual. Through our Online Student Services, we aim to establish a strong relationship between you and UMT regarding concrete learning foundations, meanwhile, interacting with University professionals and encountering emerging technologies.

Think of us as your “one stop shop” for your online education experience. Please contact us now.
