Message from the Administrative Board

To all current and prospective students:


As part of our efforts to combat fraudulent activities perpetrated against the University of Atlanta and its student body, please be advised of the following:

1. The UofA only uses official channels in all communications with students. As such, we will never phone you except in an emergency situation and even then, by prior arrangement. The UofA does not utilize social media of any description to contact its students. Specifically, we do not use media such as Whatsapp, IMO or any other SMS platform to contact students.

2. The Uofa will never resort to calling you to demand payment for your program of study nor would we harass you in any way for any reason

3. The UofA encourages all students to be ware of fraudulent activities perpetrated by certain individuals who are in no way connected with us but who engage in criminal activities in attempts to defraud our students.

4. For your sake, please, do not send money through any means, to anyone that claims to be from the UofA. You should only send money following an official notification and as agreed between you and the UofA for your program.

5. UofA is currently working hard to be fully accredited once again with the relevant authorities. Any calls or communications from any one claiming or soliciting your transfer to a different university for the purposes of accreditation or any other purpose is fraudulent and should not be entertained. If you receive such calls, please, hang up or ask the caller to send an official email. If you do stay with the caller, do so long enough to obtain basic information from them, then, hang up and dial our fraud hotline to report it and verify the authenticity of the call

6. Should you find yourself at the receiving end of any suspicious activity, please, do not become a victim. Instead, hang up and dial the Chamblee Police station or report the matter to a special Crime Hotline at the UofA. The number is 630 800 2139.

Remember, we all have a duty to protect ourselves. Do not become a victim. Do not allow criminal activities to flourish at your expense. The UofA takes all such activities serious and will take steps to prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.

Stay informed. Stay alert. Stay safe.
