"This can be a good school, but you have to make sure you choose the right professor. For example, there is this professor named Stephen Pew, who is disrespectful, rude, and is always on a power trip. He gives student's terrible grades if they speak out against him and he wants you to focus on his class only which can hurt your grades in other classes. Also, when trying to get this issue resolved with the higher ups, it gets passed around and the issue doesn't get resolved. This can be a really good school, but all it takes is that one professor to mess up your entire GPA and graduation record. Make sure to speak to your advisor regarding which professors you should learn from."

"Absolutely the worst academic institution. Makes its money off of service members and its family but the degree isn't worth the price of toilet paper. The Air Force wouldn't even accept my Master's in Healthcare Administration. That's right the US. Air Force wouldn't even accept a master's degree from this "military friendly" institution. Its a complete rip-off, a waste of money. Oh and they will try to rob you of every penny. Every semester, they would recalculate my tuition so that I owed them more once my classes started and send me threatening collections notices. I wasted a fortune of government GI bill funds on this degree mill. Its the worst. I regret my decision to go here every day of my life."

"This university is for those who just want to fulfill their requirements for the Post-9/11 benefits or those who simply want a degree to place on their resume. Even at the graduate level, the the standards are non-existent. In short, you turn in an assignment, even if it is a disaster, it will be an "A". The "team" projects are an atrocity to academic standards. Being an alumni of George Washington University, I can say without a doubt, that the level of academic pride from the students is mediocre at best and the level of academic standards from the "Instructors" are even worst. Students here will simply get a grade in which they do not deserve in favor of encouraging them to continue registering for classes at UMGC. I am ashamed to admit I am a UMGC student."

"The only class I completed at the school was the Graduate Studies class that is required for all Master's programs. This class was extremely easy. Got an A very easily. I've outlined the course structure below. This class was 0 credit hours so I didn't know what to expect, but I think it was a good class for those that haven't written an essay in a very very long time. There was no lecture and no textbooks. All materials were online YouTube videos and how to's in the online library..etc. I think this is fine for this particular class, but I'm so glad I discovered this website before I took my next class. If your program (graduate or undergraduate) is something technical like Cybersecurity THE COURSE CONTENT SHOULD INVOLVE TECHNICAL SKILLS AND NOT CONTINUOUSLY WRITING ESSAYS. Writing ability is important. However, people who work in this field do not spend their ENTIRE time writing research essays. There has to be some technical knowhow. This blew my mind. My program is Health Informatics Administration so I know there's no hope for me. I'm not going to learn any programming languages by writing essays. I was expecting to supplement my programming skills outside of this graduate program after getting the basics from class. I now know this would not have been the case and I would have been very disappointed. This degree program is useless even though it's accredited. I'm now applying to a brick and mortar school in my state that has a good reputation. And I'm going for straight up Health Informatics (still totally online). Thank you everyone for writing your reviews! It saved me so much money! I only spent $50 for the application fee, $75 for the one class I took (because it's 0 credit hours), and now however much for my transcript for said class so I can apply to a real school and get a Master's degree that holds true value. I'm sorry for those that actually spent thousand of dollars at this school. Course Structure: First week was a discussion assignment. You had to make a post and reply to two other students. The second week was a 500 word essay draft. Third week was turning in the final version of the essay. Fourth week was 1,000 word essay draft. Fifth week was turning in the final version of the essay. Sixth week was another discussion assignment of the same format, but different topic. Again...there was no lecture and no textbooks. All materials were online YouTube videos and how to's in the library..etc."

"If you are seeking to start a career in Healthcare this degree may be a waste of time and money. Despite telling my advisor that I needed to be employable immediately upon completion and that I have a passion for Healthcare, she used her well memorized selling points to help guide my decision to this program. Prior to graduation I began applying for entry level and mid-level positions. I quickly learned that my more than twenty years of employment experience was irrelevant since it was not in Healthcare. Although I had held a volunteer position with a Healthcare facility; that did not help. Seeking to leverage my diverse employment relationships I began applying for government jobs. Again, you apparently need experience to get experience. Five years after graduation I have given up applying for positions am settling for my 32k/year job which is well beneath my skill sets. Tread cautiously."

"UMUC is a great school. The curriculum is challenging but I believe that overall it forces you to learn the information. I am not happy about that fact that they did away with text books though. I guess this was a decision that was made in order that they can remain competitive with almost all other online colleges who have done away with textbooks. I obtained my associates and bachelors from this school as well. Sometimes the instructors can be a little too strict on the assignments requirements but I think that is actually a good thing. I know some students who have obtained degrees from other online schools and they still don't even know how to format a research paper in APA style. I am grateful for UMUC because when I was on active duty stationed in Iraq and Kuwait, I was able to continue my education with them online. There accessibility to military personnel when they are deployed or otherwise stationed outside of the United States is awesome."

"I'm taken 6 of the 12 courses needed toward my Master's (NOT in business), had a 4.0 (and yes, I will agree it's a rigorous program and nothing wrong with that) until I had to take a finance course that was completely ridiculous, way, way too in depth for those without a finance background and absolutely no help from the instructor or the so-called "tutor": I'd post a question about homework and it would take 4-6 days to get a reply which usually wasn't even responsive to the question asked.Basically, you're teaching yourself and paying them for the privilege. If I wasn't so far in I'd transfer in a hot minute."
