Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.19 Average Rating
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.

I did a lot of research before going to college and UMUC is the best school with the best programs I was able to find.
I am now in my second semester and I would not trade it for the world.

Univeristy of Maryland - University College also has very interactive and professors who are expeirenced in the fields they teach. At University of Maryland - University College a semester is broken up into three sections to make taking many classes in one semester less burdening.
Marina from Turlock, CA
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.
Michelle from laurel, MD
It is a decent college. It is nice to be able to do school while working a full time job. Website is messy and little hard to understand.
Jonathan from Fargo, ND
Very helpful staff that seems to be always available. Amazing online library with extensive databases for all research projects. Great online learning experience with WebTycho.
Shawna from APO, AE
Upon walking into the UMUC office I was muddled and confused about college opportunities for me altogether. As I sat listening and learning to a gentleman, who came in before me, I was reassured by the ease of the counselor how easy attending and excelling in college truly can be. Just by being attentive and following what the counselor was saying I am on my way to finishing my associates degree in under two years!
