Student & Graduate Reviews

Nicole Butler - 6/21/2019
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017
"I was very pleased with the University of Maryland University College as an undergraduate student. I completed my degree online. I loved the flexibility of when and where I could access my courses. I was also appreciative of being able to access faculty most often, when I needed to. The program can take as long or as little as you need it to take, it's completely self paced. I loved the digital platform. It was not hard to understand or utilize. I did, however, struggle with using the research databases. While the large majority of searches produced usable results, there were times when my searches were tedious and difficult. Overall, I believe UMUC is a great school, especially for busy, full-time employed, adult learners."

Prerequisites - 6/18/2019
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019
"I will say that I personally didn't have any issues with the school due to the fact that I only needed to take one course that is required for my Grad School program that I will be starting in the fall at an in-state institution in the state where I currently reside. The class did seem rather easy but I mean that is to be expected with this type of school so I'm not in the least bit upset. Throughout my time in the course the teacher was very professional and made sure to critique and give beneficial advice. I honestly would feel upset if I actually was seeking a degree from this institution but I didn't so I do feel sorry for the unfortunate students that got a degree from this school. That is why it is always best to do your research before you attend any institution. I would just recommend doing your prerequisites here because they are easier here and make sure to check the transfer requirement for your state before doing so, which is what I did."

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2019
"My major was discontinued from the school, however, they have a condensed 6-class MBA which I highly recommend anyone to take. I have no regrets of choosing UMUC as my college over PHEONIX and STRAYER UNIVERSITY. Some classes are easy and others are hard, you get out of it what you are willing to put into it."

Degree: Cybersecurity

"If you are looking for easy classes where you do a bit of writing and get an A, this is it! if you are looking to learn, not so much. You will be placed in a class with a few really bright, determined people and more than a few slackers who do the bare minimum and somehow manage to get up to the next class. I really do not know how badly you have to do to not advance but it must be basically not turning any work in. Group projects are a complete joke. There is always one (or two!) person who contributes nothing, but the professors do not mark them down or allow the team to skip those steps, but require the team 'workers' to complete everything and then awards the group an overall grade. Those of you wanting an A? Well you just helped the slackers get an A as well. It is so incredibly frustrating for those of us paying the full rate and genuinely trying to learn when there are so many individuals just looking to do the bare minimum to get the letters, and succeeding. I made it to the end but this place is most definitely about UMUC getting money and not one bit about you getting any sort of education."

Dawn Smith - 5/14/2019
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013
"This program provided me a strong foundation in life--both professionally and personally. The program focuses on relationships in the following ways: how they form, how they deteriorate, how they influence individuals, as well as groups and organizations. While the program's focus is specifically on relationships within and connected to the family unit, the knowledge obtained through the curriculum and lectures advises students much about their personal lives as well. The program unfortunately does not create many job opportunities on the basis of the degree alone and instead is a stepping stone degree to a graduate or professional studies program. It assisted in me being accepted to and completing law school, but had I not continued my education, I would not have found many career paths open to me in light of this degree on my resume. As an additional positive, though, for prospective students to consider: the knowledge instilled in me through this program gave me a practical advantage in my everyday life."

Cyber Student - 5/3/2019
Degree: Cybersecurity
Graduation Year: 2019
"I had a great experience with this school. Like all education, you get what you put into it. I began my studies here to complete a BS degree; the transfer process was really easy and most of my transfers were accepted. I never had any issues registering for classes, and I was able to always take the ones I needed. I have seen a lot of really poor reviews of this school, and I don't know why. The degree I got from UMUC had enough teeth to get me into graduate schools such as Penn State, Purdue, Johns Hopkins and Georgia Tech."

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2021
"Not sure why the negative reviews. You truly get out of it, what you put in. Structured program with good interactions with peers and faculty. No issues with UMUC. Currently maintaining a 4.0 and taking 6 hours per semester. Requires about an hour a day and two when working an assignment/project. Great school for those who are using the full online course."

CC - 4/23/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
"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 down my degree significantly. On the financial side, I was given about 15% leeway on my first semester taken there, in that I had some financial aid left over to pay for living expenses because I was going to school full time. For my second semester, they gave me slightly more, but allocated it over the course of the entire year. In other words, they gave me about 50% of what I needed MINIMUM to pay for the classes I was taking. I wasn't informed until mere weeks before the semester. There are countless other small experiences I have had with their support, and all of them were abysmal. I had to hound them at each turn just to get a response. This institution is unprofessional, unhelpful, and should be avoided at all costs. That being said, if you have thousands of dollars lying around and want a mediocre education combined with unhelpful staff, this is a decent to rid yourself of that money."

Charged Fees Unfairly - 4/3/2019
Degree: Nail Technician
Graduation Year: 2018
"I filled out an online form last year after being contacted by UMUC. Apparently, this constituted an application at which point I was charged $50 and never emailed about it. Potentially they had the wrong email on file. I finally find out that the school sent this $50 application fee to a collections agency and now I have this headache on my hands. I honestly don't remember much about the application since it was a while ago, but it's very sketchy that they don't require the fee when you're applying. I don't remember even considering a fee at the time. The whole thing seems very unprofessional."

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019
"I completed my degree using the GI Bill and didnt have any issues. I managed my time and got every thing submitted. If youre a procrastinator then online school isnt for you. I would get my masters there but they dont have the degree I want. Some professors are better then others, as in all schools."
