UMUC Project Management
July 22, 2013
Project Management. It’s a joke. Having a Doctorate degree does not equal qualification for being a professor. If you like, self-study this is the place. The curriculum looks like it is written on the back of a napkin. UMUC is in business to make money, that’s all. I expect more for my money. Those that can, do; those that can’t, teach; those that can’t teach, do it at UMUC…
Happy With Experience

You get out of it what you put into it in regards to how much you learn. In terms of getting a job I was concerned how it would look on a resume graduating from UMUC. However, I was hired as an adjunct instructor for a University less than one month after graduating (that was what I went to school for). I had to wait to start teaching because I didn't even have my official ...

University of Maryland University College is a pretty good school. I'm in an agreement that it is not Ivy league school. However, it's not a degree-mill. Student needs to do some additional research before selecting a course and Prof in every semester. I've seen here faculties ranging from outstanding to mediocre. This is sort of commuter school with quite a few long-distance campuses. I'm impressed with the course curriculum, when I compare with other reputed ...
UMUC not so bad!
April 22, 2012
Well the school is really not so bad if your a working adult. For me it has allowed me to take master level classes while still working full-time, being a mom, and wife. The down side is the caliber of your classmates. The group projects are horrible as many people stated, many of my classmates appeared to be more on a freshmen year undergraduate level than a masters degree level. I primarily had issues with ...

If you're looking for an on-line "diploma mill" do not attend UMUC, the school will make you earn your diploma. This school offers top-notch programs and provides excellent instruction through easy to use forums. Those that said it was difficult to access classes were perhaps in their first classes, but after a couple classes it's easy. UMUC is a member of the University System of Maryland and the school takes that distinction seriously, so you ...
Don't go there if you are on FA
August 30, 2010
Do NOT attend UMUC if you are relying on FA! Although most colleges post aid disbursement dates on their Web pages that are easily accessible, UMUC acts as if it is some kind of state secret. The only thing you can find is, "Aid is disbursed approximately ten (10) days prior to the start of classes." What? 10 business days? 10 days? It is now 9 days-not business days- before the start of Fall semester ...
