Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Online is fantastic, just wish there was a little more help in knowing how to access the online portal, I was lost my first week.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

As an online school, the responsiveness of the faculty and the use of technology is great. Not being able to qualify for internal graduate scholarships until 9 credits are completed is a little bit stressful as far as financing my education.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is online which makes it easier for me to work and get my education at the same time. I have constant access to my professors and they always respond to emails in a timely manner. The work is challenging and makes me think which i value. The school has many resources available to help such as advisors helping with any course questions I may have and newsletters telling me the latest events. My graduate program is preparing me for my next chapter in life and for that I love UMUC

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros are the online availability and cost for military family, cons are the global focus is not useful for small private owned businesses and takes time away from more pertinent information.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2017

UMUC is very convenient for military personnel seeking any form of education (certs, BA/BS, MA/MS, and PhD). Generally everything is online, so there is little campus social life.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I cannot believe some of these students get degrees! It is a disservice to the institution, to pass these students in many cases.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

UMUC provides a well rounded education, which is challenging, and is taught by those with field experience. The program is affordable and the software for the online classes is not only user friendly, but has a multitude of different options available to aid in learning in the online classroom. The customer service is excellent, with knowledgeable staff waiting to assist those who call. UMUC could improve upon better communications between departments within it's facility, as well as decreasing the wait times that are experienced by those calling in to the advising and financial aid departments.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

A pro of the particular graduate program that I am apart of would be the accessibility to the many student resources in which they provide to you. The con would have to be that there are not many options for on-campus classes in my particular area of interest/study.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is entirely online. The pro of this is that I can go to work full time and complete my classes on my own time. I do not need to go to a campus to work on my degree. The con to this is that there are no face to face interactions with others.
