Graduation Rate

6%
BELOW AVERAGE

University of Maryland-University College graduation rate is below the national average.

6% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Maryland-University College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Overall Rating:

UMUC was pretty horrible. One semester my Mom passed away a day before classes started. I tried to get help with my classes, but since my Mom passed away a day before the semester UMUC said I couldn't resign from my classes. They were the most unhelpful people ever.The school is not very helpful, they tell you to go to their website and ignore you. Sometimes teachers aren't very intentive and you have no avenue to complain to get things back on track. I failed many courses here, but at any other college I maintained a 3.5 GPA. My GPA would probably have been higher if I did not attend UMUC.Online statistics say their graduation rate is 4%, I believe it. Do yourself a favor and apply to another college.

Overall Rating:

This is a really poor institution for Environmental Management, otherwise it is fine. Im taking online courses, majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Environmental Management. The business professors are good. But in Environmental Management classes, course materials become non existent or inaccessible; professors are disorganised and condescending; and the knowledge gained at the end of the course is equivalent to that of a Google search... Not a bad school unless you want to major-or minor-in Environmental Management

Overall Rating:

Amazing professors, caring and helpful online professors and they work you hard, which definitely prepares you for whatever field you go into. UMUC is top notch education that fits into your schedule without losing any educational goals or content. If you're planning on an online university, UMUC is the way to go!

Overall Rating:

I have just recently inquired about enrolling in their master's program. I can honestly state that the admissions counselor there is just like the A.C's at other colleges/universities. I recently found out that most of these counselors are third party hired and not actually with the school.In any event the tuition rate is lower than that of the tuition rate here in NYC and the program I am interested in seems to read better than what I anticipated. Long story short, I've received my undergrad at a diploma mill and did not have a great experience.Another respondent stated it best when they said, "It's what you make of it!" and it is. Bottom line!
