The education and support I received from the School of Education was excellent. To put this statement into context, I was not receiving assistance under any additional programs like accommodations for special education services.
THE ISSUES
I am a veteran that used Vocational Rehabilitation Benefits to complete my degree. NDMU fails at providing services for veterans. The business office has taken 6 months (and counting) to submit my enrollment verification to the proper VA platforms, the first step required to pay my stipend. If you are a veteran avoid this school. I have begged and pleaded for past 6 months and the responsible party offers the same excuse each month she has failed to upload the required verification of enrollment/attendance. I am now working with a student affairs liaison officer to try to move this process forward. The programs at this school are good. The issues with the business office are enough that you should consider a different school.

Notre Dame of Maryland University is an incredibly empowering place to learn. My classes, on average, consisted of about 10 students, which allows for professors to get to know you and give you the attention that you need in order to understand and absorb the materials. I truly felt as though I belonged to a community dedicated to learning and helping others during my time there. The campus is beautiful and although I did not spend all of my time there as a commuter, I enjoyed studying in quiet, scenic places in between classes. Commuting did have its challenges, especially with the necessity of accessing school software and maintaining certain lab hours. Earning my degree was very hard work, but I feel grateful that I was surrounded by strong women who shared my values and supported me. Notre Dame provided me with lots of opportunities from getting involved in community service, to studying abroad, to gaining experience in the field I plan to work in.
NDMU is a small school and is an evergreen campus, but the colleges take so must tuition out of students and if students are in financial struggles they do not help you much. Along with that, most staff play favorites and are disrespectful and lash out on students for no reason. I say way because I have received low grades because of my religion and I have confirmed that I noticed. Also, most staff back talk about students of giving them attitude if a student does not know how to do something.
