If it weren't for UMGC and the amazing staff and teachers, I would have never finished college. I love this school so much that I plan to go back for my masters. It was a great experience with professors who are more than willing to help and respond quickly.

If you are looking for an online school, good for you, but let me tell you this is not the one. I was a first-time online college student, and when I enrolled and began working with Finacial aid and my success coach I made it VERY clear that I had no idea about what an online college would have to offer. Clearly they weren't listening. I enrolled in October of 2021 and was accepted. I immediately started working on my financial aid, and getting all the documentation they would need. That is where...

I began with UMGC in January 2019 and graduated May 2021. This school was a breeze to work with and I am not exaggerating. From enrollment, to signing up for courses, to the graduation dept and even the financial aid dept. Communication is clear and concise. There is no issue getting ahold of any department that you need to speak to and the employees are very knowledgeable and helpful. If I had financial aid questions or questions about which courses to take for the next semester, they were always... Read More

Every single step of the way has been a disaster. Every psych professor I have had gives zero feedback, no explanations, and refuses help. The financial department charges the wrong amount then threatens to not release grades after they charge the wrong amount, then refuses to take it out of the next semester. They claim they have free tutoring, yep! 4 hours and if you’re lucky, you’ll get a tutor who can’t spell and takes forever, wasting the little time you have. Literally, there is no assistance....

I wanted to write an initial review for umgc because of all the issues I have had with them just getting enrolled. First, I had called them more times then I can count and just about everytime they would schedule an appointment for someone to call me back however, not once was I called back-at all not at the scheduled time or an hour after. I had to call them to say we had an appointment but each time they would say "that person is unavailable, how can I help you" anyways it has been really frustrating... Read More

There is a lot to say about this institution, so I will keep things as concise as possible. I have had a number of issues with the career / counseling services. It took them 4 months to get my transcripts in, and only after repeated badgering. They didn't get my transcript in months after I was already in their program, I had to guess on the classes I needed based on a vague preliminary report, and even so I couldn't sign up for most classes because my previous credits weren't entered. This slowed... Read More

I went to a brick and mortar school some years ago before attending UMUC. I really dont understood all the bad reviews! I think these bad reviews are from students who didnt put forth effort in their work. I love the program and surprisingly found the information to be very retainable. I learned so much and love how the program is designed. I had only one instructor who didnt communicate well but even so I did well in that class. I found many students lacked effort and those are probably the ones... Read More

UMUC is a great school for untraditional students. They have partnered with a lot of the local community colleges and some universities to ensure student s are able to get the most out of their education. Their hybrid options were great. It allowed me to sit in a classroom for really hard classes that I needed the face to face interaction, like math. In addition, learn a lot from the online classes as well.

I would not recommend this schools online degree program. Class teachings are incomplete, do not apply critical thinking, discussions are a joke, and professors are paid next to nothing while students pay big time. Education is below average and learning goals can hardly be established.

I find it surprising to see so many negative reviews, UMUC offered me a straight forward program with great professors and very challenging school work. The staff has always been pleasant and helpful, and if you dedicate yourself to study and do well it pays off. The teachers have been amazing, kudos to Professor Francis Klein in Statistics for going above and beyond in assisting student learn in a challenging hybrid (online/person) class. The only thing UMUC should change that may be the reason... Read More

UMUC was a good experience. Keep up with your post and start projects/papers in advance. For those of you who go into the psychology program, make sure you stick to APA format when writing. I was able to handle to work and take two classes at one time with no problem. Much success!

UMUC was an excellent experience. I transferred there from a brick and mortar school and was initially worried. However, I found that I was more challenged and became a great deal more competent in what I was learning. The instructors are all experts in the field and their knowledge and facilitation was invaluable. The online platform encourages intellectual discourse and helps to practice developing insight into your area of interest. Online schooling requires more self-determination and self-motivation...

Love the class options and diverse staff. Only bad experience that is ongoing is their financial aid office which rates HORRIBLY. All of the professors I engaged with required class discussion to remove the stigma that online classes sometimes have.

DO NOT ATTEND!! Avoid at all costs!! Have never been so emotionally drained in my life!! I went back and forth with financial aid to have my documents submitted either online or in person. I drove all the way in person twice to make sure everything was in order and still continued to receive messages saying documents were missing. I was dropped from a class saying I needed to pay for it and then I was told I was not going to be placed back in until I paid out of pocket. I was placed back on it anyhow... Read More

DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!!!!! I paid way too much money and now need my transcripts and they will not give them to me!!!! All of the money I have paid and all of the work I have put into this degree and now they are denying me my transcripts until a $50 fee for the master's program (nothing to do with my bachelor's) is paid. I was considering going here for my master's but will definitely not be. My transcripts for my bachelor's should have NOTHING to do with anything dealing with my master's!!!!!... Read More
