University of Maryland - Global Campus Reviews

Taking classes online was necessary for me, especially when working a full-time job. I found that the professors were sometimes iffy. I always check RateMyProfessor prior to signing up for a course. I have had a handful of pretty bad professors, but I've also been taught by some amazing professors! I filled in the class surveys according to the class and the professor's performance, so hopefully the school actually reads these and help filter out the professors who teach so poorly! UMGC itself has several clubs and organizations that students can join online. They offer career and education opportunities. Scholarships are available. Counselors are helpful, and most often the professors are too!

University of Maryland Global campus is a very diverse college that is catered to online students who work full time jobs. Although I do not know much about campus life (I am strictly an online student), I'm sure their services are just as good if not, better at the actual campus. All the teachers and staff are all very friendly and are willing to help any questions to concerns you may have. University of Maryland Global campus is definitely a school made for busy people who want to obtain a higher education!
Great, knowledgeable professors that are willing to work with you on deadlines and help you get the best grade possible. Great online platform that is easy to use! I love the compressed course schedule that allows me to take a full schedule while working full time. The advisors are also very knowledgeable and eager to help whenever you contact them about questions about financial services or courses.
