UMGC is absolutely terrible. I spoke with at least 5 different advisors over the course of my final five semsters and I always asked them what classes I needed to graduate. When I had finally got my 120 credits I wasn't able to graduate still because apparently, every single one of these advisors made an error when recommending me classes. I still needed to take an extra class to graduate They told me there is "good news" though because they were willing to offer me my last class free of charge due... Read More

UMUC was great in a lot of respects, but it certainly had limitations. My degree was very project-oriented, which worked well for my learning style. But I took a handful of classes which were more reliant on readings for learning, and those were a lot tougher. I'm sure there are some people out there who can learn from a textbook, but I need either a lecture or a project. If you're close to a campus, the hybrid classes work very nicely, but are offered in the evening and tend to have a more middle-aged... Read More

After deciding to go back to college and change careers, I enrolled in Graphic Communications at UMUC. I earned my BA degree, graduating cum laude, in 2015. Most of the upper-level instructors were seasoned professionals who brought their unique knowledge to the course. As with brick and mortar classes, some were more talented than others. The better ones were well organized, gave assignments based on real-world scenarios and were readily available to answer my questions and give extra help when... Read More

This school has the biggest issue with communication. Calls are not recorded and if you need to reference a previous issue make sure you record that call yourself or take notes. I was a part of the government shut down and faced many hardships there after. Not only did I sign up for the payment arrangement on this issue I even had to extend my request so I can finish my last two classes of my degree program since my grandmother passed the week before graduation and my son was sick in the hospital...

UMUC has got to be the worse school I've ever attended. I went to two colleges previously and left due to family health issues. After joining the military I figured online schooling would be the better option which it definitely has been regarding time. The instructors have been tolerable and the work at least enjoyable. HOWEVER THE FINANCIAL AID DEPARTMENT IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. During the summer semester I must've placed over twelve calls regarding my EARNED scholarships before I finally received... Read More

I have been taking online classes since 2010 after 2 years at community college & 1 failed semester of traditional college. I found the transfer process to be easy enough & almost all credits were accepted. I have really only communicated with my advisor via email, but she has offered to call me. Fairly good communication, maybe not the fastest responses. I applied for graduation for next year & that process has gone well so far. My only issue with UMUC online is the consistency of the courses &... Read More

I started at UMUC in 2009 when the courses were the traditional 16 week semesters, however I had to take a year off from 2010-2011 (due to a move) during this time they converted over to 8-week courses. I much prefer the 8-week schedule as it allowed me to take more classes each semester without them overlapping unless I wanted it that way. I have been very happy with my experience at UMUC. I started out at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro many years ago and in comparing the two schools,... Read More
