Degree: Computer Science

UMGC was great for me as an active duty service member. It made it possible for me to earn a degree before I left the military and got me a job in the federal government/ several job offers after. I learned a lot through the computer science curriculum. You will get the breadth needed for any CS job. You will need to put in extra work to get depth and leetcode on your own to be successful in interviews. There admissions/financial/student first teams were very responsive and helped me with all my... Read More

You must take control of your personal learning at UMUC. I just graduated in May 2018. I received two job offers during my final week of class. This program is intended to help you "check a box" that you have a Computer Science degree. It's not going to help you pass a Google technical interview. I have a Bachelors and Masters degrees in teaching but wanted to get into Computer Science. This helped me accomplish that goal in just under 18 months. Most other 2nd bachelors programs would have taken... Read More

I was after a second bachelors degree in Computer Science. Their website and catalog both outline their requirements: must have graduated from a previous bachelors program and have taken adequate math/IT courses to be prepared for the program. I supplied my undergraduate transcripts from my previously accomplished BS. I paid the application fee and got accepted. That's where the trouble began. The academic adviser wouldn't allow me to sign up for class. They kept saying I needed more prerequisites.... Read More

Pros: 1. They take your other undergrad credits and apply to general ed courses. I had a BS from another college, and they took ALL the credits. Relatively cheap compared to other online programs. 2. Subpar education. Professors don't pay attention, and the resource provided in course content/resources are subpar. I routinely find other (and much better) resources on my own on Youtube, etc. and regularly purchase textbooks to supplement your content. If it weren't for that, I'd learn very little....

I have 2 degrees here. The finance one was mostly a joke as far as receiving in the market skills. I went here because I was in the military, and it was the best available college for somebody who could not get college support. Their is a low graduation rate here 6% from what I understand, and the school seems to focus and put more resources into the intro classes. You will find the later classes, likely because there is less volume, are scarce, and you will get the feeling that your more and more... Read More

Degree: Computer Science

University of Maryland University College or UMUC is known for treating its students badly. Do not believe their advertisements. They are a for-profit school who take advantage of military students and veterans. They have the monopoly on military bases. They do not try to treat their students fairly. Their undergraduate Dean is the same person as their Provost and relies too heavily on his staff. UMUC's Dean just signs off on whatever his staff says and his only aim to protect them, which presents... Read More

Degree: Computer Science

I am currently attending this university and enrolled in their computer science program. I was truly surprised by the amount of 4 and 5 star reviews the school received on here for two reasons. First, the veteran "advisors" are terrible. I must attend a non-online course to receive full GI benefits and as such I have to speak with these advisors most semesters to coordinate the courses I am taking. Any time I have to call the advisors I usually have to call multiple times to get the correct information.... Read More
