5 College Freshman

Academics: The assessments are rigorous and the courses requirement a complete knowledge of the subject. Courses are graded according to the students application of the material, and the application of that material in a professional format that catches the intended audience and offers solutions that are solid and competitive. This is not always simple and students are challenged to meet these standards. So far, the students I have worked with have done fine with it though.

College Sophomore

Academics: the teachers at umuc are wonderful very helpful and understanding

3 College Junior

Academics: Classes are for the most part well taught and the content is valuable. The professors are hit/miss and can either be "completely astounding" or "laughible". The professors that have real-world experience are usually the former while those that teach straight from the book are of the later. Many of the courses almost seem identical as your narrow in on the final classes and can be quite frustrating/discouraging (especially when you only have a few credits to finish your degree...). The availability of faculty and support is excellent and advising does very well overall.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a lot of classes that are offered at this online school from business to nursing, art and history. They have a lot of courses that appeal to what a lot of people want to do.

College Senior

Academics: A lot of the classes ar online which means that the work load is double that of face to face classes. i really couldn't tell you anyhting about facilities, internship/job opportunities, etc. since i am still working toward my b.s.
