What is a Unit Course?

A unit course is an undergraduate, for-credit, university course specifically designed to meet unit needs. While maintaining the same high quality academic standards, faculty credentials, and program requirements offered in all UMGC programs, we can customize the format of undergraduate courses. We would be pleased to suggest specific courses that will maximize your unit's investment in education.

When and Where Can a Unit Course be Scheduled?

Scheduling is flexible and designed for the convenience of the unit. For example, the course can be daytime, evenings, or weekends at times and locations which are most convenient. They can also be scheduled to accommodate deployment schedules. Additionally, the course can be offered on-site at the unit if classroom space is available.
