UMUC or UMGC is an outstanding university for those who are retire, active duty military or reserve. Flexible courses and staff always there to support their students, locally or abroad. If you compare any University System of Maryland to any other university system I’m sure MD will most likely supersede it. Their investment in higher educational resources makes them hard to compete with! Education cost money for anyone who doesn’t know, so for those who complains about financial department issues....

PLEASE BE WARY OF THEIR HIDDEN FEES. Even though UMUC is a "non-for-profit" school, it certainly doesn't highlights its extra fees pending on the classes you take. I was charged $91 for a "hybrid class" (80% online/10% physical classroom). I was never aware of this debt, nor was I ever contacted for it. Fast forward 6 months later, and now my debt is in collections. I only found out about this because I recently checked my credit history and found a big fat delinquent under my records. THANKS UMUC... Read More

I am a non-traditional student as I am a Dual enrolled High School/College student. I enjoyed my experience with UMUC and had taken online college classes at other universities but really appreciated the clear and concise format of the UMUC online courses. All assignments and syllabus are loaded the weekend before class for the entire 8 week term for undergrad. They are broken up by weeks, usually you will have a weekly discussion and response post to make, you don't have to purchase books in most... Read More

Great school. Do not believe the bad reviews. This school caters to the non-traditional student. The courses are taught that way intentionally. Throughout the week, you are basically on your own to read the assigned material. IF YOU CAN'T MANAGE YOUR TIME OR YOU NEED AN INSTRUCTOR TO HOLD YOUR HAND, DO NOT APPLY. This school isn't for you. It's not the school's fault that you cannot be an adult like the expect you to be. The instructors (many hold doctorate degrees) are not lenient. It's no different... Read More

Oh my. What a ragged operation this is. Nothing but problems from day one. First, they use PeopleSoft to manage students and provide online access. PeopleSoft is NOT a user friendly application. It's a nightmare just getting around. Second, while my financial aid wasn't messed up it took them THREE MONTHS to properly acknowledge it. It never did get credited to my account. Third, took THREE MONTHS to clear ONE SCHOOL'S transcript. When I called them out on it, UMUC was sitting there arguing with... Read More

Review of the Admissions process only. As a warning to anyone considering the school. UMUC is extremely behind the times in this regard. From what I can tell, everything is manual, keyed in by underpaid staff who really don't know how to assess the "newer" types of certifications or classwork. As a result, don't expect a quick admissions process unless you're coming into this thing cold turkey, fresh out of high school. CompTIA, for example, has had online validation of full transcripts for decades.... Read More

The Information Systems Management program at UM is very good, it provides a very thorough look at the mid to high level picture of IT. One weak spot is that it doesn't provide much knowledge for the lower level IT functions. Since most new to the workforce employee will be starting out in help desk, this is a potential weakness in the program, but overall it was a great program and was well work the money and effort.
