University of Maryland - University College Reviews
I have learned a lot and have had some great professors. My only gripe would be having to take computer classes when my degree is in Psychology. At this point, I'd done general education at a community college and would prefer a more streamlined way to get into the core of my degree. That said, it has been a good experience. I am in the US Air Force and deployed and the professors are very understanding of the challenges that presents sometimes. I've also had reading material recommended to me that made the difference between going to class and replacing that time with time online hardly noticeable when it comes to taking away something from the class. Responding to each other's discussion posts can be tedious because it is mostly superficial; there is an obligation to respond and that leads to some uninspired dialogue sometimes. Overall, though, I've had a great experience! My feedback for each professor would be through the roof, don't forget that!
Offering more than 90 specialized undergraduate programs, there is a program for every working professional at University of Maryland University College. Online and hybrid classes make it convenient to earn your degree while working and volunteering or even raising a family. No matter your situation, you are guaranteed success. If you are a transfer student, the credit transfer policies are exceedingly generous. The admissions staff offer outstanding service from the pre-applying all the way till graduation. They are always available to assist you with your questions, comments, or concerns. I would genuinely recommend UMUC to anyone looking for an affordable and convenient way to further your education while getting the rest of your life together.
I started my journey officially with UMUC when I started my U.S. Navy tour overseas in Guam. The staff passion, care, and knowledge were the key reasons I've flourished in this school! Online, hybrid, or fully face-to-face coursework allow me to be flexible in every chapter of my 2 year career here on Guam and during every season in my life. The professors here on Guam are amazing.
