The complaints that I have are few, but common to all the courses so I will start with the positives. There are no expensive textbooks, the professors do not get kickbacks from publishers, and the courses guide the student along the same exact path as universities that require expensive textbooks. That being said, virtually none of the courses in the undergraduate program have an umbrella course that wraps everything up or boosts the student to a professional level. For example, the managerial courses... Read More

VETERANS, STAY AWAY! If you are a veteran and looking for a quality education, you have many better options. This applies especially if you are not 100% covered by GI Bill and are out of state. For example, I have 50% coverage and live in VA. What UMUC does is discount the in-state tuition rate, then submit that amount to the VA. They then will charge the student the full out-of-state rate, which sees VA coverage being less than 25% of the actual charges. On top of that, the instruction is essentially... Read More

As a working adult, I wanted a degree that was both attainable, affordable, and convenient. The University of Maryland University college fit that bill. As a long time leader in online learning, I was satisfied with the quality of education that I received there. Overall, while it's not Harvard, if you are searching for a decent online option to obtain a bachelors degree, then this university is one that I would recommend.

I chose UMUC to pursue a bachelor's degree online. I've had online courses before, and I understood that the workload is often more for out of classroom learning. If you are looking for someone to hold your hand while you learn, I don't recommend taking an online course. The only reason to take an online course is for the flexibility. As for UMUC's flexibility, it was largely dependent on the teacher. Each class requires weekly discussions as part of a participation grade, but some assign group discussions... Read More

I am active duty Army and had about 60 credits from other schools when I started with UMUC. I was deployed to Iraq when I took my first class and had no issues with access to the course, instructors, or help desk. Some classes were more challenging than others, but overall I liked the school. I had no issues with financial aid or with any portion of the school for that matter. I will say that they changed their online format for my last two classes which I didn't like. Would definitely take Master... Read More

This college is great if you want to work on your degree and have a full time job as well. The 8-week online courses are fast paced and enable you to get credits quick. Most classes are challenging but not too difficult to get an A/B if you just do your work and stick to the syllabus. A typical week involves discussion posts and replies and a paper/case study either each week or every other week and a final project or test at the last week. Where this school lacks is its administration. I've had... Read More

Tough and expensive program but worth it. Admissions and Financial Aid offices did everything to help me expedite the processes. The academic advisors are great in the beginning but once you are in the program, they don't initiate person to person communication. The course work is serious and very valid. I learned a great deal that I immediately used in the workplace. I am happy to have competed the degree requirements. However, the school does not have a great reputation so I am not proud to walk...

UMUC is an excellent university with likewise professors. The professors were very helpful and knowledgeable of their areas of study. You earn every grade you receive. Miss an assignment and you probably can forget an A for that class. The school takes those assignments very seriously. The work is very challenging but if you put forth the effort, you will be very pleased with the knowledge you have gained. Some very influential persons have their degrees from UMUC. Again, an excellent university.... Read More

I attended UMUC part time and completed all of my schooling there, with the exception of a three-credit class at a community college and two CLEP tests to graduate a little early. I was focused and motivated, with a clear goal of obtaining my bachelors degree in business administration. And I did...with a 3.8 GPA. Academic excellence was not a goal initially, but over time it became more important. I would recommend the school for anyone who is a self starter with a strong work ethic and good time...

The instructors made it very easy to maintain an understanding of all work assignments. Versus with the current online course I am taking is very confusing and not user friendly. I did not have to deal with inconsistencies with getting financial aid started. It was just overall a great well organized school. Why I am not there any longer is due to with my not being affiliated with the Military any longer. My tuitions rates would be considered out of state and I would not be able to afford to attend....

UMUC, is not a high standard school. If you are looking for an easy class with little to no knowledge conveyance, then this is the school for you.

Most students write at roughly a low high school level, and the professors for the most part (roughly 80%) are under qualified or disinterested in their students or the class.

I have had a few good solid professors at UMUC but they are the exception more than the rule. I would never recommend this school to anyone truly trying to learn a new skill or... Read More
