"Received a lot of support from instructors while on military deployments and assignments. Course work greatly improved my ability to perform at work and the degree opened prospects for Officer Candidate School. I used mostly tuition assistance, however the amount I paid out of pocket was low due to the low tuition rate."

"I attended the University of Maryland University College and graduated in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management. The school is very affordable and the online and hybrid classes were very helpful in allowing me to complete my degree while serving in the Active Duty Air Force. The school is designed for students who work full time or work odd schedules."

"Student teacher interaction was a big advantage. Instructors are always available for students 24/7. All books and software technology are online and are free. You know what is expected of you and the instructor before class starts. You have access to your classes before semester begins. Syllabus outlines the guidelines and how to be successful in the class your taking."

"Save yourself time and money. This school is outrageous. I have gone to the Adelphi Academic center where the Financial Aid, Academic Advising, and Bursar are located. You're better off calling the 800 number than showing up in person. The tuition is also outrageous for the quality of education. The only positive that I got from the experience was from their Hybrid courses, in which you met a physical teacher once a week for the duration of the course. The online courses are garbage. Your grades are based off of discussion participation, which I'd often times highlight and paste someone else post and still get an A. If your want a school with no challenge whatsoever then go to UMUC. I had all my math done by professors at my old community college, scanned and sent PDF including the final math exam. I'll be traveling to India or Thailand for a BA or BS degree for FAR less and the education is good. India has some of the best medical doctors in the world."

"This school is horrible. You call and get transferred several times with negative results, professors took days, 2-3, to reply to you in email because they are full time at university around the US. Its been over two weeks and still no transcript so my local school that i am currently enrolled is denying my fafsa and its half way through a semester and no way to pay for it let alone books. I dropped out from UMUC over a semester and a half ago and they are still screwing me over. What a waste of time and money. I will never recommend this school to anyone."

"I was a military brat and graduated from high school overseas and signed up for one of the few colleges available at the military base. The school overall was good. I took a break in the middle of it and took my time getting the degree and actually changed my major 3 times before earning enough credits for the Environmental Management and Social Science double major. After changing my major the last time and during the time I finished the classes they changed the name to Environmental Science. I spent a total of 10 years at this school received a double major BS degree and two certificates. The two advisors I had were very helpful. They called me and said I had enough for the Applied Behavioral and Social Science certificate and the Diversity Awareness certificate if I took another class so I did it. In my last 4 classes my advisor called again and said I had enough credits to get a double major. The advisors were great. Most of the teachers were great as well. I went to the Asia division and the Stateside online as well and the transfer was smooth. Some of the online teachers were inconsiderate about students and time zones and expected us to wait up at night for an exam to open because it was only open for 12 hours stateside. For example when its day time in Maryland its night time in Okinawa Japan. many of the classes did a week long exam but there were the few that did a 12 hour opening. Some just did a final paper. The FA was bumpy. Being in Okinawa Japan if anything went wrong I had to go to the office and have them call mainland Japan office to fix things or ask the status of things. Sometimes they made me call stateside and that was worst. But the stateside division wasn't as bad. They had this one teacher that taught a majority of the environmental classes and she was savage. I'm an A-B student but with her it was extremely difficult and I mostly got C's with her. She would give her own statistics for grades and it was funny she didn't see anything wrong with having 0 of her students in that class getting A's and about 2-3% getting B's. Overall, I would recommend the school for someone who is unsure of what college to go to and are waiting in limbo and indecision. The classes are highly transferrable and they take almost any other's school's credits as well. The school is agreeable and flexible. They cater to the military which is great and the school is all right but it isn't a school any one recognizes or knows and if going for a job not in Maryland most employers will say "who? I'll have to look them up." I tried getting a job with this degree and was unsuccessful as I was beat out by others with degrees with more reputable schools like U of Phoenix. The degree work was challenging but the degree itself is looked down on since it isn't a well known school outside the military and Maryland. But its a great in-between college for the military members or civilians that don't know what they plan on doing yet. They never once rushed me along my 10 years at the school. They called and checked in and asked how I felt about what interested me and offered opinions but never said anything along the lines of you need to pick a major and stick with it."

"If you want to graduate with some knowledge, then this "school" is not for you. The only advantage this school can offer for you is the opportunity to get a graduate degree somewhere else because it is still considered to be accredited. The professors in this school do not care about you, you are left alone to read your books, the students complain that open book exams are hard. I can go on and on. The only reason why I went there because they accepted my credits from the military, and since I was active duty I could not go to a traditional school. Now, I am still on active duty, but I have time to go to a regular school. I am starting my MBA next year in a state university. You will never get a respected job with a degree from umuc, it is nothing, people will laugh at you. I guess the positive reviews for this school come as propaganda from its PR department or lazy students. Sorry guys no offense. This school only needs money from you, do not go there!"
