Student & Graduate Reviews

"I attended UMUC from 2005-2007, and earned a second BS, in Psychology. Without a doubt, the course work prepared me for my graduate work. The instructors I had were exceptional. They expected high quality work, provided helpful feedback and guidance, and supported my through my program.My first BS, in Elementary Education, was from a traditional school. The workload and quality of my UMUC education was as good, if not more demanding, as my first degree. Online education requires self discipline and drive. You will sometimes feel like you are in cyberspace, and you will need to accept responsibility for your work, but the staff and faculty are there to support you. Great experience!"

"I DID NOT TAKE ANY ONLINE COURSES; BUT I FOUND IT TO BE A GOOD EXPERIENCE OVERALL, FOR OVERSEAS MILITARY SCHOOLING. IT WAS NICE TO GET CREDIT/DEGREE FROM SOMETHING I WAS HAVING TO LEARN ANYWAY. IT DID NOT PREPARE ME FOR A CAREER, PER SE; I RETURNED TO THE STATES, TO THE MIDWEST, WHERE THERE IS LITTLE DEMAND FOR MY DEGREE."

"Fantastic experience! Classes are set up WebTycho, UMUC's interactive, Web-based course management system. It allows the student to have 24/7 access to class agendas, message boards, email and live chats with faculty and fellow students.UM online classes were developed as online classes which allows them to flow smoothly and really takes advantage of online tools. Plus, I was able to work classes into my schedule on my time. The university even helped place me at an accounting firm where I am working toward my CPA!"

"With the University of Maryland online I discovered that college is for me. Before I enrolled in their online courses I was having a lot of trouble passing my classes even though I was sure that I could do better. It turned out that doing the work and taking the class via the internet was the best thing for me to do.The coursework was much harder online than it was when it was given in traditional classrooms. However that wasn't a challenge for me, I actually enjoyed the work I got through my online classes because it was at my level, and not at the rest of my classmates' level. With Maryland college we used forums, email, and a lot of video and audio files. We also got to use Adobe Reader a lot to open up our PDF files which contained our printed materials such as assignments, vocabulary, and even our books were in that type of file.As for the classmate and professor interactions, I think that online it was way better than not online. My professors and I did a lot of one-on-one talking and discussing of goals, class activities, and the future. My overall experience at the University of Maryland college online was awesome. I wouldn't have finished my education were it not for this online program. I highly recommend that busy individuals or those who are having trouble with traditional classes try the online courses offered here."

"The coursework was very rigorous but there was ample time given to complete tests, projects, and assignments. The tools I used were mainly online and website based, but you didn't have to complete everything on the computer, as you could send the professor documents or work via "snail mail." I didn't have much interactions with other students, but with the professor the interactions were great. The online services made it easy to contact the professor whenever I faced a challenge or question that I needed help with. Overall the experience was great and I would recommend it to anyone."
