"I transferred from a private institution to the University of the District of Columbia in my sophomore year. During my time at UDC, I received an excellent education which rivaled that of the much more expensive private one I attended previously. As a land-grant teaching institution, I found that the professors had a vested interested in my success. I would highly recommend the University of the District of Columbia."

"Beautiful campus in a beautiful city. Nothing beats NYC and the Columbia campus, but the dorms are slightly dated."

"Within my graduate program I think the professor are very knowledgeable, but I also think that there isn't enough time spent helping the students and working with the students one on one. The size of the department has a major role in why the professors are not available when needed or why they do not reply to emails. I enjoy my classmates and the knowledge we've shared with each other, but I think UDC could do much better by growing the size of their department."

"The University of the District of Columbia is the greatest school I have ever attended and would highly recommend to all who inspire to be challenged and motivated to improve the lives of others through the educational experience obtained. The instructors are selfless and help their students strive to be the best that they can be in obtaining a world-class education from world-class instructors. In addition, this institution is also very tuition-friendly compared to other learning institutions."

"Pros Small student-to-professor ratios. School does not rank making students more willing to help each other. Cons Targets the non-traditional student, but the school does not offer child care for its students' children during class hours."

"The School of Business and Public Administration is located in a renovated building, providing the students with updated technology and new furniture. The student to faculty ratio is averaged around 11 to 1. This reasonable number allocates time for feedback and reviews from student to professor."

"The pro's of this graduate program is it is affordable, with diverse resources within the school with face-to face interaction and feed back from teachers. The program is accelerated and it provides me time to go to work in the day while also having the time to attend classes at night. There are no con's to the program thus far. However, due to me entering the program with such short notice; getting funding and financial aid has been great weight of me paying for my fall semester class."

"Seven new students were entered into the program this semester. The student body is diverse. Professors are available to help and talk. The Business and Public Administration department are placed in one of the newer buildings on campus so technology is up to date with smart boards and projectors."

"I am a current University of the District of Columbia (UDC) student who is transferring to SIT Graduate Institution after months of medical leave. The Counseling Faculty were phenomenal when I met with them. UDC is where I received my Bachelor of Science Public Health (Health Education) degree, and I loved it. I applied for their Counseling Program, but I believe the Sustainable Development Graduate Program at SIT will help me make a bigger impact in communities in the United States and around the world."

"I have enjoyed my experience so far as a School Counseling graduate student at the University of the District of Columbia. The faculty is amazing and really make learning the material interesting and enjoyable. I had my concerns at first about attending UDC due to it's reputation in the community, but I am now proud to be a student here. If anyone is interested in pursuing a graduate degree in counseling, I suggest they look at UDC."

"The Cancer Biology Prevention and Control masters program is a joint program between the University of the District of Columbia and Georgetown’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. The biggest pro from this program is its diversity and networking capabilities. Students take courses at both institutions and are equally competitive in the field to their Georgetown counterparts upon graduation. The program is unique and one of the best choices of graduate medical masters programs in that it provides tuition funding for the first year, students must apply for financial aid and scholarships for second year. The largest con would be the cost of living expenses in the district. Average cost for a one bedroom within the district and neighboring states (MD and VA) range from $1200-1500 per month. Transportation also incurs an additional $50 weekly depending how far and how often you travel throughout the city. There are on-campus jobs that the students can apply for during second semester and second year to help with expenses, students are not allowed to work first semester. Despite the cost of living the overall benefit from the program is immeasurable. Students will be adequately prepared for matriculation into the field, medical school as well as tumor biology, epidemiology and/or molecular medicine doctoral (PhD) programs upon graduation."
