"I am a well established professional and veteran, currently working in an IT related field for the government. Despite the success in my career, I decided to go back and finish my degree during COVID times, as I may soon be inclined to change my career path. Frankly, the only reason I am writing a review about UMGC is to offer a truthful testimony, as many of the reviews present here are untrue. Out of all of the instructors I had (around 28 in 18 months), maybe two could use some serious improvement - the rest were diligent professionals. The classes would be challenging for someone new to the workforce, but an experienced professional would have no issue "shortcutting" the content... That is a perk of being an "old" and much wiser student, anyway - I'd easily do the same at a Harvard or otherwise. To summarize, UMGC is a great value, it is regionally accredited, it is respected by employers, and it gets the job done. The online resources are great, and the classes hit the keynotes. Anyone who's been around knows that this is exclusively about obtaining the piece of paper at the end, and lesser about the education... everything is learned on the job in the real world... a degree is just an admission ticket. There were a few losers in the courses that never stood a chance; those people are behind the negative, no-substance reviews here."

"I transferred to UMGC from a state university in my city, because they offered a program that that university did not, and I was in no position to relocate elsewhere to pursue that path. The accelerated class format put me only a year away from graduating at the time I transferred, which was another huge draw for me, but I should have known it was too good to be true. This is not a real college education. I don't think that this is something that students who start off at UMGC realize, but anyone who has attended a quality college would be appalled by what they are touting as higher education here. The courses have no substance, and those within a program are repetitive and almost indistinguishable from one another. The free textbooks sounds like a nice perk, but Google them and you'll find that they are designed for AP High school or first-year college classes (and yes, this is what you are studying in your junior and senior level classes). The professors do not care. I get the impression that most of them could not teach at a respected university, so came to UMGC as a last resort where there are really no standards. They use random blogs and news articles as their sources for "research", and in many cases the information they provide goes against well-accepted industry standards and recent research (you'll regularly read outdated material presented as current). Their course content is filled with spelling and grammar errors, to the point that I doubt these professors could pass a high school English class. It was incredibly difficult to stay motivated throughout my last semester here, as every time I logged on, I was painfully aware that I'd been scammed and it all felt so pointless and humiliating. I am ashamed to admit that I ever attended this university, and feel obligated to attend grad school (elsewhere, obviously) if I ever hope to find a good job in this field or pay off the thousands of dollars in loans I took out to attend this poor excuse of a university. Please do not make the same mistake I did. Their entire marketing campaign is misleading, and truly false advertisement. All attendees should be entitled to their money back - UMGC is an absolute scam."

"I actually never wanted to go to a accredited college to begin with but my family insisted that I still needed guidance when it came to disability (autism). So I grudgingly gave in. The classes were okay but the tuition was driving me crazy and had to take out loans and grants and pay out of pocket. There was no support system for people like me. No one informed me that I needed internships to gain more experience and boost from the other candidates. I had to figure things out my own. I wasn’t passionate my major anyway. I did it for the value of the dollar and because my agent insisted I needed to do something practical that will help them get me a job similar to that major. UMUC was fine but just wasn’t for me."

"I decided to earn a degree well into my career. I'd worked my way up through the management ranks and was at the executive level when I decided to return to school. UMUC's Business/Management curriculum was quite relevant to what I do everyday. I got the theory behind some of the practices, enhanced my skills in various aspects, and my confidence was boosted. After earning a degree my income was increased and I receive a promotion. The CEO of my company even attended my commencement. I found most of the instructors very engaged and invested in the success of their students. However, I did have a very small number of instructors that may have been experts in their field but it did not translate into a good instructor. Also, although costly, I preferred have a physical textbook rather than the e-books that UMUC starting using around 2014 or 15. With regard to other departments, I found the academic advisors and technical support to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I relied upon them quite a bit. Also, I formed some very good friendships through a study group that I joined. We met every Saturday and helped each other get through Statistics. Online learning is not for everyone. You have to remained disciplined and focused. UMUC was the perfect choice for me."

"I found this school excellent. Being a Navy vet, this school was very easy to work with. The professors were great. If you are looking for an online college this is great. Very easy to get a degree, if you reach for help. Go Maryland! I consider it an honor to be a grad."
