I decided on UMGC (they changed their name.AverageUndecided
I decided on UMGC (they changed their name. Now I know why) because as an on-post provider of educating military people they seemed good to us. However, as a veteran with ample financing, it is game-on with their infestation of activists who hate. They have access to your account, your schedules and tools where they try to knock your enrollment out of the order because it will affect your payments. When you get wise to that, they'll fix a systematic learning tool to be unworkable, and will ignore your complaints. If you attended this school in the military, trust me when I say it will be very different as a veteran. You will be seen as entitled, well funded, and someone to knock over. It is no wonder they changed their name to ?University Of Maryland Global Campus?

Question
This college has the worst online cybersecurity programQuite BrightComputer Science
This college has the worst online cybersecurity program that I have ever seen! The virtual machines were NOT SECURE! The instructors were Indian and tech support was also Indian! The required reading was over 10 years old! In the world of cybersecurity- that's dinosaurs reading! In addition, the course materials were poorly organized and confusing to work through! I would strongly recommend going to another university!

Question
Policies are broken, classesQuite BrightCommunications
Policies are broken, classes are repetitive, and they are more focused on getting you to sign pacts that you won't plagiarize, academic integrity and format than any actual content. This is definitely a school you attend in order to "tick the box" of education credentials, and not actually learn.
