University of Maine at Augusta Reviews

I am at one of the remote locations for the UMA campus. The town in which this is in is a small one in comparison but still provides excellent support to the students. Since the particular location is small, the staff and professors at the location are extremely helpful and everyone knows everyone by name.

Even as a number of the classes are video conference or delayed viewing, those including the classes that are on site are thorough and helpful. The professors definitely appear to love what they are doing and even help their prior students.
Given the cost of the tuition and the level of education received, the university is very cheap to attend and being able to keep loans or out of pocket expenses at a minimum.
The staff and professors are extremely helpful and willing to work with their students to succeed. I cannot praise the staff and professors enough for the remote location.

When you start your journey through college, you need a direct path toward your degree. The faculty and staff will be there for you. You have a very tight support system that will get you through the rough times. Define your degree and be the best student that you can be. Do not settle for mediocrity!
I am an online student and I love the flexibility of being able to go to class as my day allows me. I have had excellent instructors and the level of knowledge that they are teaching us is outstanding. Would not transfer or drop out until I graduate in 2020, an awesome school!
