Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2022
"I absolutely love attending UML. I take all of my classes online and it is amazing. I work full time have a family and am able to go to school online and finish my degree. I don't want to jinx myself but I haven't had a professor that I didn't like. They are pleasant helpful and encouraging. I envision receiving my degree and I am excited about the future."

"UMass Lowell provided me with great insight and flexibility with their degree programs. I originally attended there from 2009-2011 and left midway due to my financial situation. A few years later, I returned as an online student. Their degrees and classes are as rewarding as a physically attended class. The professors are helpful and the Student Center staff is very knowledgable."

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015
"The professors were arrogant and ignorant. I guess that was one of the reasons the department was disassembled. They were too busy rotating themselves in the chairman roll to maximize their pension instead of teaching. So were vindictive if you didn't agree with their views. For example: The policy professor got mad at one of her guest speakers when he disagreed with her on unions."

"I would strongly advise against UMass Lowell Online. All of my classes were online. The websites they use are clunky and too many mistakes were made. Students pay thousands of dollars for school there shouldnt be as many errors as I had to deal with. They made a mistake in on of my classes where it caused me to be six weeks behind in homework. If youre looking to go to school online Id say do your research and dont do it with Umass."

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2020
"Universities and colleges often claim they help prepare aspiring leader without being able to back this claim up. UMass Lowell not only talks the talk but also walks the walk. As a student, I could not be happier with my selection and participation in the EdD program. My community and I thank them for building a better me, which in turn has a larger capacity and knowledge-base to serve. Thank you for revolutionizing my thinking and actions."

"My experience at the University of Massachusetts Lowell was outstanding. I did all of my classes online, although I felt very connected - as if I was in a classroom. All of my professor's were readily available to answer questions, or to provide guidance."

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017
"Massachusetts offers both and online and on campus degrees in various fields. Their online CIT program is truly a diamond in the rough as it provides an affordable and technically challenging degree program for those that are looking for a career in IT, and specifically software development. The courses are taught by some of if the keot dedicated professors I have ever encountered in academics. Weekly chats, workshops and tutoring truly make for a seamless online experience. If you prefer in person courses, those are also an option. But the online route makes it easy for anyone to pursue this program from anywhere in the country. There are numerous online tech degrees out there but none come close to this when it comes to price and flexibility."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013
"The University of Massachusetts Lowell was a great college for not only those who lived on campus, but for the working commuter students going to school full time , like me. There were great resources for students to be able to excel in their area of study with whatever support they needed whether it was homework or activities on campus. The criminal justice program itself provided me with great insight on what to expect in the field. I also double majored in political science and my goal through the program was to affect change through policy or becoming a defense attorney. I am incredibly appreciative of the insight of my professors about their experiences experiences because it all impacted my decision to pursue social work instead. Had I not had the quality education that I had at Umass Lowell, I would not have realized that the field I studied was not the greatest fit for me. I am privileged to be working in the field of social work now because of my educational background that opened doors for me to enter into a professional field. I am now attending Rhode Island College in pursuit of maybe masters degree in social work sand wouldn't be able to have this opportunity if into weren't for the faculty support that I received at Umass Lowell."

"Umass Lowell was a great and affordable state college that provided the same opportunities for learning as a private university in New England. The college provides rigorous course loads with many available time selections and faculty staff with many years of experience and qualifying abilities. The school is continuously upgrading and changing their facilities to more modern grounds and has a very diverse group of students. I was a proud student of Umass Lowell that saved money going to a state school and did not feel like I cheated myself of an education. Umass Lowell gave me equal opportunities in learning and gave me a great education that I believe was a better than some other colleges."
