What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
STAY ORGANIZED, AND ALWAYS COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PROFESSOR AND ADVISOR ON ANY ISSUES / QUESIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
Angela from Frederick, MD
This is just my opinion, but face-to-face classes are easier to get through. Especially if your like me and forget to do things. Online classes are difficult to keep up with, and need your attention 24/7.
Mercedes who lives in Germany
Do your home work on a bunch of schools do not just jump in to one.
Joseph from Northfield, MN
Most students with University of Maryland - Univeristy College take advantage of its online degree programs. Pursuing a degree online, like myself, a student must be willing to chase after what they want. Work is much harder and getting errands done is more on the responsibility of the student. Also make sure different contact information for advising, financial aid and administration is all correct and be prepared to have regular contact with university staff.
Marina from Turlock, CA
Look into all aspects of the college to ensure it offers what you will need and if it fits into your schedule. It offers a nice selection of majors and minors for most of your college needs and tuition includes books (if you attend on-line classes). It has been a very good school and fit for me.
Michelle from laurel, MD
Think before applying to online classes. It is a lot tougher then it looks. You need learn on your own and it can be difficult to find time to do homework and studying.
Jonathan from Fargo, ND
Writing perfection can be easily learned at this college. There are so many resources to help every writer from the extreme beginner to the advanced expert.
Shawna from APO, AE
I wish someone would've told me how easy it was just to sit down and start. I had so many excuses in my mind as to why things wouldn't work for me and horrible obstacles that lay before me. There is an open door at the end of every road. I spoke with students who had gone through similar feelings before they applied for college also. Low GPA's and SAT/ACT scores riddle a lot of prospective students with enough anxiety that walking away from the mere headache of it all seems like the grander idea. Let me tell you it is not. Every road has a door at the end and every road has twist and turns and surprises galore. Stop and think about long term and short term goals before turning away from something as helpful as a college education. I am a proud student of UMUC and ever grateful that I had helpful, patient, and informative counselors to guide me into the right direction.
Kiara from Bolingbrook, IL
Taking classes online, in my opinion, is actually more difficult than going to an actual lecture, but you can get so much more out of it! Online classes need students who aren't tempted by cheating and who won't shy away from a lot of work and finding the answers on their own (no one is there to hold your hand). Make sure you get to know your advisor really well, especially if you are taking classes online, because when you are not immersed in a college atmosphere, you may feel overwhelmed when making decisions regarding your major... This means phone calls and emails to your Undergrad/Grad advisor and asking questions.
Erica from Ellicott City, MD
Great school, but it will hammer you if you are a student that studies poorly or is looking for a fast degree.
