I'm not sure what an Academic Rigor is, but if it's about the staff of UMUC Europe then they're perfectly fine, no complaints. They're happy to help which makes me happy.

Best school I have been to so far.
Joseph from Northfield, MN
Professors are very helpful and the cooperative attitude of WebTycho, the online server the school uses for online degrees, gives students perspectives from both professors and classmates. So when the student enters the work force they have scenarios from all over the board.
Marina from Turlock, CA
Very challenging dependent on your course of study.
Michelle from laurel, MD
It is decent. Professor are professional and do a good job grading and teaching. Classes are challenging and require a lot of free time to complete.

My advice for academic choosing is to start with a class that you like. Choosing something that you like and/or are interested in will cause you to actually want to participate in discussions and open your books. I also suggest taking two classes at a time if you can and are a newcomer to college online or not. Taking just one class I feel doesn't give you the real intensity of college life. Taking one easy class and passing with flying colors might set one up for failure when they try to take an actual required class that requires a lot more rigorous work and hands on studying. I have always tried my best at school. I have always taken two classes and being in my field of work in the military they discourage taking two classes because of an already full work load. After realizing I work better under a certain amount of pressure and excelling in my classes I moved on to take three classes at a time on top of my workload. After finishing those classes I have never felt prouder of myself because I did very well and it was an amazing personal accomplishment under my belt.
