Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The benefits of this graduate program is that it is fully online. The professors realize they are educating teachers, and they relate everything back to the classroom. I was concerned with completing a degree online, but the ease of use of the online classroom made the experience beneficial.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: *Online courses are great for single parents *Meeting weekly online holds you accountable *Most classes are easy to navigate *Teachers & staff respond in timely manners *Tuition is very reasonable compared with other Kentucky universities Cons: *Online courses make it hard for you to get to know or really collaborate with classmates sometimes it is just nice to see people face to face! *A few (very few in my experience) teachers are just teaching the online course for extra money, and don't really put much effort into teaching effectively

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The program in which in I am in at U of C is top of the line with great professors who truly care about my education, as well as me as a personally. I could not rate some of things above as I am enrolled in the on-line program. I highly recommend the Mental Health Counseling program to anyone who is seeking to acquire an education in this profession. I can only speak pros and no cons as to this program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

This program was one of the only ones who I worked specifically with the professors and admissions staff. They were more than will to go above and beyond in order to make sure I have everything I need. Overall, impressed with the amount of support and attention everyone gives to the students. Although the graduate program is not on the main campus, I think this is a great advantage for it to be in a highly populated area in order to give students more options to learn and experience new things.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I would recommend University of the Cumberlands for both Grad and undergrad studies. The staff and professors have been willing and understanding to work with everyone I know who has been taking courses at the school.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2010

The M.A.T Graduate program for Elementary Education was very easy for me to complete, while others seemed to struggle. I have no complaints about the staff or any of my classes. I would consider going back to further my education. Their graduate tuition price is fantastic in comparison to UofL, UK, and WKU.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The school offers a totally online MBA program which is perfect as I work full time. Small class sizes allow for greater interaction and the teachers seem genuinely glad to help.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this college is that it is cheaper than other colleges near by. The online option makes it more accessible for me as I am working full time and a parent. The faculty and staff at the school have always been very helpful and friendly. Plus, the courses I am taking have taught me so much that actually apply to my certification area. As far as cons, I've not really got any complaints. I would definitely choose this college over others. My overall grade above is not that accurate because I couldn't rate the college in several areas due to me being an online student.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is much easier than I anticipated. It is a great deal of "busy" work but I have learned little. It repeats what I learned in my undergrad. However, the ability to stay home with my children outweighs the negatives of the program.
