Coming from an online high school, I knew that taking classes online was no vacation. So far I've taken 9 courses at UMUC, and all of them have challenged me. The courses are interesting and the online component adds a unique discussion -- it's not your typical college discussion, as the students range in age from 18 to 40+, from soldiers to stay at home moms, from California to Iraq. The discussion boards are the main aspect of the classes and allows you to work with your fellow classmates (who may be virtually on the other side of the world...

    It is a good school for adult learners. It offers flexibility for your schedule, especially if you have a family. It is not always financially feasible -- it does not help adult learners without a stringent GPA requirement.

    I think it is a great school and offers many people opportunities that others may not receive elsewhere. I am currently overseas with my husband and UMUC is offered as a school at the Education Center. What a lifesaver it is.

    Overall it's a great school for any oversea military related student. Both the online and face to face are pretty decent oversea, considering what is available on military bases. If your are a part of the military, they have good degrees for jobs you might need in the military community.

    This school is great for someone who wants to take online classes. It's easy to use, the classes are informative, and everyone that works there is extremely helpful. There are some classes on various campuses, but most are online.

    UMUC is pretty nice, even though I'm attending their Europe Counterpart. The people are nice and so are most of the teachers. Which is only because some teachers are boring and talk through the class, and there are other teachers who are really fun and make the class fun and easy to do.

    UMUC is a great opportunity for non-traditional students to acheive their educational goals. We have wonderful faculty, many of whom also teach in traditional colleges, so the education is excellent. Since we are a state school, UMUC is a financially feasible option for many students.
