University of the District of Columbia Reviews
Very poor administration! The school's administration is very unorganized and vulgar for dealing with the students' needs and concerns. I believe that with the right employee training, the university can establish a better way to treat the students because after all we are the ones paying them via tuition!
My online learning experience has been pretty good so far. Most of my professors were able to adjust well to online teaching. Some did virtual lectures that were mandatory and took attendance, some threw lectures out the window, and just posted youtube videos and reading assignments. But all of my professors offered office hours and time to discuss the material one on one, which was super helpful. I could also get tutoring online, so that's good. However, I feel like the quality of my education decreased and I cannot wait to get back into the classroom. It is just not the same.
This is the most unprofessional school I have been to. Admin/Financial Aid lost my papers multiple times, and even after submitting them ONLINE, they would still lose them somehow - that amazed me. Certain teachers have been very passionate and helpful, while others simply didn't care about teaching at all. Also, almost all the courses are offered in the evening, I did not know that until I registered for classes. This would be good for someone who works in the day and wants to take classes in the evening. But this was horrible for me since I am only a student and am forced to take almost all my courses at night ( sometimes they would end at 10pm). However, it is super affordable and I know that there are a lot of great students and staff members.
