As an older student that has been out of college for nearly 20 years, I am very impressed with the approach that University of Maryland University College (UMUC) takes to acclimate students to the academic environment. When I was an undergrad, I used a word processor to type my papers and the registration process involved standing in a long line at the registrar's office! Needless to say, I was nervous about how I would adjust to a more technologically advanced college setting. However, my experience at UMUC with selecting my major, enrolling in my classes, and the hybrid class format has made me feel confident and prepared to obtain my Master's degree in Information Technology. Therefore, I highly recommend UMUC, especially to non-traditional students who may be apprehensive about starting or returning to school.
I'm a freshman online student attending UMUC. I'm a military dependent and the school is incredibly military friendly, offering special deals for military families and veterans like reduced tuition. As far as classes go, I love them! I'm 4 credits from being a sophomore. There's a wide variety of online courses to choose from and all the professors I've had have been friendly and accommodating. The curriculum is a bit more challenging than traditional universities because it's accelerated, meaning classes are only 8-weeks as opposed to the normal 16-weeks of non-accelerated schools. The caveat to this is that you'll receive double the work to make up for the shortened course length. Accelerated curriculum is not for everyone, but it's ideal for any students looking to obtain their degree early.
Wow, what a great school! I have had nothing but positive experiences during my two years at UMUC and would highly recommend this college to anyone, particularly those in the military. This is because the college cares so well for the military members and their families, including offering in state tuition rates and adaptability to deployments, TDY's, etc. Almost every class I have taken has been interesting, and the teachers are always there to help you in whatever you may need. Although I will soon be transferring to another college, I appreciate everything UMUC has done for me.
