Wherever you go after graduation, you'll always be connected to your fellow UCHA alumni.
Through many of the courses, students will have several opportunities to "network" with current practitioners in various ways: site visits, guest presenters, mentoring opportunities, externship experiences, etc. These contacts will help students pursue career possibilities even
before they graduate.
Graduates inform the school about business opportunities that interest them, and the school informs them about business opportunities in their area of interest. Alumni receive periodic mailings from Student Services. UCHA is often advised of job opportunities within and outside the community. The openings are posted online for those who have graduated from UCHA only.
One of the Student Services Director's primary functions is to be available as the contact person for job opportunities and to advise the
students and graduates accordingly. While completion of the UCHA program does not guarantee job placement, the College and its faculty will maintain a community presence and comprise a list of positions and employers for its graduates. It’s interesting to note that many UCHA learners who participate in the community/externship program maintain that position after graduation.
This is a unique opportunity where the student can develop a site in his or her community to provide massage therapy. Many students
have created such opportunities at spas, chiropractic offices, hospitals, medical doctor offices, nursing homes, and massage therapy clinics.
UCHA offers Continuing Education Units for alumni. These workshop units are not part of the ABHES accredited curriculum. Programs are provided at intervals, and alumni are kept informed through mailings and postings at ucha.edu. Additional information and photos can be found on the Universal College of Healing Arts website and continu-ed.com.

UCHA welcomes the Graduate who is preparing to take the MBLEx or simply desires to review a given subject. UCHA offers the graduate the opportunity to return to the classroom and audit classes previously taken at cost. It is the college's goal to successfully help its students meet their desired destination in massage therapy.
